he was in the room when the lottery was actually held

But it's a lottery, how does he know we were 1 ball away? Did the guy have our ball in his hand and drop it? What does it even mean to be one ball away in a lottery?

The lotter draws four numbers. Each team is assigned X amount of four digit combos, based on their % to get top pick. Thus, what dell means when he says we were one number off, and he explained in an article somewhere, was that the first 3 numbers pulled (123X) were a combination we had. He said we needed the last number to be a 4 or a 5 to get the 3rd pick. The last drawn was a 6, so we didnt get it. So, its not a completely irrelevent statement (though I suppose since we didnt get it, it makes no difference) but still you can imagine the tense moment Dell had in that room rooting for a 4 or 5 to come up.
