Silver is an idiot. Lottery reform missed the point yet again.

To be fair, this new change only affects bottom dwellers like the Kings, Lakers and Knicks


For those fans of consistent elite teams who tend to use the regular season as their exhibition conditioning, we wont notice a difference fellas


Nothing to loose sleep over boys, carry on

Teams really gonna tank half a season for a 14% chance at a top 3 pick?


Teams will always tank games at the end of the season to jockey for draft position, that wasnít the issue. The problem was teams deciding to tank at the beginning or halfway through the season. Or even worse, tanking multiple consecutive seasons.

14% is the #1 pick, the top 3 pick % is much higher. So yes it will still happen.

So lets get it straight.

The draft is designed to keep parity in the league. Improve the worst teams to compete with the better teams.

So now it is decided to make it harder for the worse teams to become better.

Punish the bad teams for being bad by decreasing their chance of becoming better?

Still only a 40% chance at a top 3 pick. Tanking an entire season for a less than 50% chance at a top 3 pick isnít worth it IMO. Maybe in a once in a decade draft that has 3 superstar talents.

Adam Silver looks like he has aids and so do most of his decisions at this point.

Teams will always try to better their chances if they can. They're not going to say, oh shit, we only have a 40% chance instead of 47%. Lets not tank.

What a lame change, instead of being the ultimate worst, the bottom 5th-8th teams will actually be enticed to try to be in the bottom 3rd to get that chance to get a lottery pick.

What should have happened is simply putting a limit on how many years can teams who were CONSISTENTLY TRYING TO TANK YEAR AFTER YEAR to like
straight 3 years. After 3 consecutive 3 yrs of getting the top 5 pick, their highest pick should be 6th pick. If the argument is that they need to help these teams improve their roster, you then allow them to increase their salary cap between 10-20 million, so they can build their team from free agency instead.

The objective was to punish the teams that are DELIBERATELY OR INTENTIONALLY BEING BAD so they can get handoffs.
My problem is teams like the Sixers have REPEATEDLY ABUSED the system for like 5 straight years without lifting their finger to help themselves with freeagency and hiring the best coaching staff etc.
For me it should have been plainly limit these manipulators to keep doing it year after year. After year 3 of being bad, the highest they can pick is 5th BUT they would be allowed to increase their ability to sign 1 or 2 star free agents.

Suddenly tanking into the 5th or 6th spot gives you a much higher chance of getting the #1 pick.
