The Hawks lucky charm

Actress Jami Gertz represented the Atlanta Hawks at the NBA Draft lottery.  Her husband is the team's co-owner, Tony Ressler.

According to Ressler she was selected to bring the Hawks good luck because she's been responsible for his good luck the past 30 years.

Hertz didn't disappoint as the Hawks landed the 3rd overall pick in next year's draft.  Hours before the draft she revealed the key to her luck, a red ribbon tied to her bra.

Who knew before tonight that her husband was the co-owner of the Hawks?  And why isn't she front and center on all things Hawks related?

If the reactions on Twitter are any indication, she just might be more visible going forward.
