anyone who thinks this sort of ish isn't rigged is naiive to say the least

candice parker going to LA was luck of the draw?
diana taurasi to phx was sheer chance?

so the struggling WNBA's two most hyped players to ever enter wind up in the two biggest WNBA markets by chance? lol

crosby goes to the pens, a historic franchise in need of a new arena. coincidence?

Would LeBron James be in Cleveland if this were true? I rest my case.

I can not say I completely believe it, but if Wiz do get Griffin, I mean #1 pick, then I would really be intrigued bc of the Oden and Durant debacle. I know it is highly possible Wiz legit win it due to thier horrible record, but still interesting to me.

I am on the fence becuase that year both Seatle and Portland were having arena issues, and somehow they get the top two pics. There was some talk of moving (a la OKC)

Maybe im fishing for a conspiracy, but I really really hope I am just looking for something instead of it actually being rigged like all fans i hope.

remember when the hornets finished 1 game out of the playoffs in 1999 but got the #3 pick, just as their arena issues were developing, and their sellout streak was coming to an and?

hummm.....

If the lottery was rigged :

- Boston would have had the top pick two years ago to get Greg Oden
- Cleveland would not have had the 1st pick to pick LeBron
- San Antonio would not have had the 1st pick to pick Tim Duncan

durr, its the art of subtlety. can't make it too obvious or else they'd get dragged to court and sued for millions, reputations ruined

they try to throw you off the trail

plus cleveland was a good place for lebron

and they put duncan in SA because the spurs were trying to get a new arena

This is completely my point. If the draft was rigged why would small market teams have any thing? Also I am pretty sure the Knicks would not suck as bad as they currently do.

no, but NY only had like 6 percent chance to win it in 2003 (they ended up with the 9th pick) and if they'd given the knicks the #1 pick their whole lid would have been blown. at that time all the conspiracy theorists were out in full swing. they couldn't risk it.

Right, so the conspiracies, only work, when they make them look realistic?
