Yeah... Anyone who follows the NBA knows that an expanded lottery only makes the problem worse. Now you are giving teams that actually could make a run at the playoffs a reason to tank it since everyone gets a shot at a top three pick. This certainly won't help the problem, in fact, it could exacerbate it.
I'd like to see a year end tournament between all non-playoff teams where they battle it out for higher draft position. This is something that Bill Simmons has suggested to resolve the NBA's own issue with tanking because draft lotteries do not work. Oh, and if you think people wouldn't watch remember that 1.8 million tuned in to watch the NHL draft lottery this past spring. People would watch a tournament to determine the first overall pick and it would generate real revenue for non-playoff teams. Seems like a no-brainer to me. Why can't these idiots look outside the box?
