  • Is the current lottery ideal?

    Is the current lottery ideal? Specifically I am asking is the format of the current lottery system where the last placing team gaining highest odds of picking first. Is that fair?

    I hate the current system. I think that the system promotes tanking which is really anti-sportsmanlike. I play hockey and I know that no player intentionally tanks but general managers can clearly nerf a team to make their odds of picking first higher. I think that's lame...

      All 14 teams that miss the Playoffs should have an equal chance of picking 1-14.

          In a perfect world, the current lottery format makes sense. The worst teams in the league need the best players the most.

          However, this isn't the case anymore. Too many teams are tanking and losing games on purpose. You have fans cheering when their team loses a game because it gives them a better chance to win the draft lottery.

          I like Josh's idea, and I'd go even further. The 14 teams that miss the playoffs have an equal chance of picking first overall, and the playoff teams have a (smaller) chance as well. A team like Detroit, who has made the playoffs for years, should not be excluded from the chance at a generational talent when they come along.

            Actually yeah, I think I like this even more.
