An Idea To Shake Up The NBA Lottery and Eliminate Tanking

The 2018 NBA Draft Lottery was Tuesday night, and for the fourth straight season the team with the best odds (or worst record) won the #1 overall pick.  Knowing what the potential of a top overall pick can do for an NBA franchise, tanking to get that slot has never been more popular or prominent than in today’s NBA.  The League hates it because they … Continue reading An Idea To Shake Up The NBA Lottery and Eliminate Tanking
