Talk about generous tippers! When Steve Schanwald, the Chicago Bulls' executive vice president of business operations who represented the team at the 2008 NBA Draft Lottery, scored the first overall pick to this year’s entry draft, so did Debra Rabbing a Secaucus, New Jersey waitress who sold him eggs that morning.

“When he came in for breakfast, he was pretty down,” said Rabbing. “I told him his Bulls still had a 1.7% chance at winning and maybe he should just be more hopeful. Then he rolled his eyes, and mumbled something about giving me the pick if he won because he didn’t have cash for a tip. When I found out I won I was so excited I called him immediately!”

Schanwald seemed less enthusiastic. “I made a joke. What the fuck? What the fuck is she going to do with a basketball draft pick?”

Rabbing says she’s carefully considering her selection and has narrowed the field to either Kansas State Forward Michael Beasley or Derrick Rose, a point guard from Memphis. “As a single mother, I think either one of them would be very helpful with my kids and around the house. They’re both fine young men.”
