To the critics of the lotto
Yes i am a Nets fan but i am not upset at the results. I am happy to at least have a draft pick( sorry knicks) at 3. This is the only way to prevent teams from tanking their season. I do think the worst team should have a better chance( maybe 50%) but not an automatic 1. This only thing that would make me mad is if they pick Cousins.
You should be upset at not getting a top 2 pick. The Knicks knew for a long time the pick was gone.
50% will lead to a lot of tanking, but since the Nets were so bad 12 wins that tanking wasn't needed.
Top 3 in this draft is not a total smite job but no Wall...sorry that probably means no Lebron...My Sixers have a shot at Wall now...he or Turner will be rocking Sixers Jersey's next year...
if you watched the nets you can see they didnt tank. plus players dont tank its the owners/coachs who tank. they do that by playing guys more time then they should knowing they cant compete. players dont say ..."oh im not gonna play good so we can get this young kid in the draft" of course they would like to have the guy but not at the expense of looking bad and in some cases costing them money in a future contract
I do think the team with the worst record should have a least 50 percent. It is kind of dumb if you give the team with the worst record 25 percent which mean there is a 75 percent chance that someone else gets the first pick. Team tanking will always happen to some degree. I hope with the talent spread around it is harder for team to tank without it looking obvious enough to where they can get penalized
riiiiiiight maybe ya'll have never played ball so you cant understand that you dont go out there as a player and say " wow we could get this dude so how about i play bad so we can get him" yeah makes so much sense. how about i play bad and mess with my money,maybe cause me to lose my starting spot or playing time.....
i am not saying wall/ turner will be busts however, Sacramento didnt turn out too bad with the 4 pick.
it should be like the nfl, take luck and lottery out of the equation. if you want to tank, so be it
