NBA Draft Lottery; Boston Celtics; Detroit Pistons; The Top Pick; DeShaun Tate; Gisele Bundchen; Softball Classic.

The Boston Celtics had the lucky number last night, but "Current Sports with Al Martin" is giving you the lucky number for today. Episode 939 revisits the fall of ping-pong balls in favor of the Celtics, who took home the no. 1 spot in the NBA Draft via the NBA Draft Lottery. Al and engineer Isaac Constans picture the dynasty that Boston and Danny Ainge's front office are assembling, and each tell their dream scenario with the pick. But while Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz and Josh Jackson might be some of the hottest prospects on the block, thoughts drift elsewhere. Also, the Detroit Pistons notched the 12th pick in the draft, and their possibilities with the pick are visited. DeShaun Tate, CBS Atlanta producer and host, adds his knowledge to the fire, with a few bold takes about the best course of action for teams in the draft. DeShaun touches on the entirety of the college crop. To wrap it all up, Al and Isaac tease tomorrow's topic of whether Gisele Bundchen was a little bit too talkative about the injuries her husband and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sustained.
