Default How to avoid tanking in the NBA?

The worst team that have a winning record is going to have more ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery.

At least some of the worst teams in the NBA are going to be more competitive in last few games of the Regular Season.

I can smell the Rockets tanking in the 2009-10 NBA Season because they want to draft a young franchise player that's going to replace the Injury Prone Yao Ming, and aging Tracy Mcgrady.

I've only seen cases of all out tanking a couple times this decade. 08 heat are the main ones, and they got maybe the player with the most potential in the draft.

Terrible idea, the low seed teams would just tank towards the end of the season.

I see the Lakers tanking so they can get a low 20s pick.

Put everyone in the lottery with even odds. Or, make it based on record but in reverse. The 64 win contenders get the 25% chance at #1 and so on. That would make things a bit more interesting. And if you are worried that things would become unfair. Remember no team could afford to continuously sign High draft picks year in year out it they also had a lot of money in a veteran championship core. So there would be a general trickle down of talent.

I like the idea of giving everyone in the lottery even odds or significantly evening out the odds. It is unfair that certain teams (Clippers) are rewarded for their overall incompetence while teams who barely miss the playoffs only get an average pick.

LMAO AT THE ROCKETS TANKING!

What are they going to do? Sit Trevor Ariza for a few games here and there? Or maybe Battier will sit out the last 5 minutes of the 4th and let the 20 point blowout turn into a 25 point blowout.

They are going to suck without even trying to suck.

Unless we get mind readers, teams will always find a way to tank without breaking the rules. I thought Pat Riley leaving the team to scout while the season was still going on was pretty blatant tanking, but lots of other people would suggest otherwise. Because really there are some GM's out there who's actions don't really make any sense, yet they're genuinely not trying to tank.
