And the previous posters are right, the Wizards are one of the worst teams in the league (technically second worst right now, I think), so them getting the pick wouldn't be even a little bit suspicious. If Stern was that fond of DC, they'd have won in the 80's and early 90's when they were just as hopeless and pathetic.

There's also been a consistent rumor that the NY ballot was refrigerated in the Ewing lottery.

Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. This topic may be a bit of a joke, but it just shows how corrupt the league has been under Dictator Stern.

There isn't even smoke here, its a guy who thinks something posting on a message board. If the lottery is rigged, I seriously doubt ore then 3-4 people in the world know about it before hand. Unless you're friend is one of the head execs for the league I doubt he knows any more about who will win the lottery than the rest of us. But I knew somebody would believe the OP, too many people nowadays believe everything they hear/read for a few people not to be convinced.

Maybe you don't know how to read, but I specifically stated that the rumors about the Ewing lottery have been around for a long time. It has nothing to do with the OP, or people who "believe everything they hear/read." Maybe you should take a look into the many "conspiracy theories" that have proved to be true. As I said, where there's smoke, there's usally fire.

Go to Google and put in the search term "Ewing lottery rigged." You'll get a search result of almost 25,000 references. It looks to me that there's widespread belief that something was very wrong with that draft lottery.

It's the 10th biggest NBA market overall and the 9th biggest NBA market in the US. Since there are 30 NBA markets, I don't see how being the 10th biggest out of 30 markets qualifies as a "small market".
