Yes, Shane Battier, master of 32-, 27-, 22-game winning streaks, has entered the lottery during a streak. Details:
“Oh, yeah, I’ve tested my luck at various establishments, to no avail,’’ the Miami Heat forward told FOX Sports Florida. “A couple of scratch-off Lotto tickets.’’
When he had a 22-game winning streak with the Houston Rockets in 2007-08, Battier figured everything was going so well that the might as well try the lottery. He did not add to the $5.9 million salary he made that season.
With that in mind, Battier has abstained from the Florida Lottery during the Heat’s winning streak, which reached 27 with Monday’s 108-94 win at Orlando.
“I don’t want to use up all my luck,’’ Battier said.
Battier also had a 32-game winning streak at Duke in 1998-99.
