Draft lottery?

Why does the NBA need a lottery to figure out who gets the first draft pick? Anybody a basketball fan that could explain that to me? The NFL's reverse ranking system makes sense to me... :dunno:

Re: Draft lottery?

It's pretty stupid. Just do it like the NFL. Makes complete sense and is fair.

Re: Draft lottery?

My guess would be how much of a difference the one man makes on an NBA team. In football you grab random star #1 and you can still only really dominate one side of the ball, and thats a really, really big stretch. In the NBA you draft a Lebron or a Kobe and your team is a front runner.

Re: Draft lottery?

point of the lottery is to give the masses of suckie *** teams a chance to get a front runner for their team

Cause alot of the teams in the NBA do just flat out suck

yeah I dunno it makes things intresting, but sucks cause the west coast is dominating, those teams have had some damn good luck as of the last few years.

Celtics, 76ers, Knicks are 3 teams that needed this lottery the most, now we gonna know whos gonna be non dominating again for another year

Re: Draft lottery?

It disappoints me to say, but I can't stand watching baseball anymore. And I say that's sad because that is the first sport I ever really watched...and I watched a lot of it. Now I don't even watch the world series anymore. *sigh*

Andruw is pissing me off. They pay him a lot of money, and he just isn't delivering this season. PS last nights game sucked.
