Regular season records decide non lotto. If Sixers were 15th worst team it doesn't matter if they win the title... they get the 15th pick in the draft. Damn Sixers are in a damn good position and get best of both worlds. Game 7 of semis AND get a chance to draft a great player. I'm bummed Clippers won't have a pick... but I understand CP3>pick.
