A young Los Angeles Dodgers (MLB – Major League Baseball) fan had a day she’ll never forget.

Tryin’ for Zion was the theme of last night’s NBA (National Basketball Association) draft lottery. The lottery determines the order of the draft and Zion Williamson from Duke is the player every team wants. The 14 teams that didn’t make the playoffs are entered into a lottery system (think ping pong balls like an actual lottery) in hopes that their name is called for the #1 draft pick.
