Is the NBA Draft Rigged?...

Cavs "win" the NBA Draft 3 out of the last 4 years and twice in a row now.

When will the NBA stop trying to make up for Lebron jumping on a runaway flight to South Beach, while giving Cavs fans the middle finger on live TV? It's becoming painfully obvious that these badly run teams will never learn how to be succesful by "gifting" them players through the draft... 3 of the last 4 #1 Picks and still one of the worst teams in the league every year? Disgraceful.

And to top it off, Kyrie tweeted, "Wow, Luck of the Ping Pong Balls..." right after it happened.

Pfft... Luck my a**.

No it's not rigged and your

No it's not rigged and your late to the party, these accusations were being Made last month. If the lakers or celtics won, people would have said it's rigged. I'm sick of it, even if your drafting at the top it doesn't mean your getting a hall of famer that is going to bring titles. Yeah you get the first choice but doesn't mean you won't f it up. Alright I'm done and off the soapbox

Last month? These accusations

Last month? These accusations have beem made for decades... only difference is, the proof is finally starting to surface now.

And of course a high pick doesn't mean a team won't F it up... but that's the point. Cavs draft high, with a high failure rate... So, why does the league keep giving them more chances to our chagrin? No other team gets saved like this. They are trying to help an incompent owner prove that he can win without Lebron, but it's pretty obvious that he can't win (with or without him).

You can't be serious. What

You can't be serious. What proof? What possible reason would the NBA have in rigging the draft in the Cavs favor?

Yes, the players and coaches,

Yes, the players and coaches, trainers all do it for love of the game. The owners and marketing companies all do it for love of money. It just seems which ever franchise needs first pick more gets the number one. Funny that when knew owners but teams there team gets 1st pick. Wall Washington and Davis New Orleans. There's always business politics, and dam Gilbert is probably buying picks with the money he made off Lebron. Or borrowing money off warren buffet.

LMAO. How many times have the clippers needed the top pick? Washington needed it for many years as well, bobcats,Twolves etc. so many holes in that story that there isn't enough time to fill it.

Actually

Everyone was so disgusted by the Cavs winning the 1st pick again that this year is actually a pretty good argument that the lottery isn't rigged.

...Or maybe the sneaky &$#%#&@!s are just trying to throw us off the scent after gifting Davis to N.O. and Kyrie to Cleveland like they did. ;)

This draft lottery rigging

This draft lottery rigging sh*t year in and year out needs to stop. IT ISN'T RIGGED. Why would the NBA even want to make Cleveland better? They aren't a top 5 market, and probably aren't top 10. If it was rigged, the Lakers or the Celtics would have won it. Every single year there are multiple "the lottery is rigged" posts. Zero proof, 100% bs.

Not to mention it's illegal, and would cost multiple people their high paying jobs, and would equal jail sentences.

Just like all those Wall

Just like all those Wall Street bankers who stole billions from people which was illegal and unethical. But hey they didn't go to jail, they got raises. Nba is a business can't say that more. My whole argument if it's legit y do it behind doors. We watch the out come live, y not c those 1000 little balls going around and see with our own eyes who gets what pick, we never have so y believe something I havnt seen. But we trust this multi billion dollar business, who has it's own interests and IMO they have the power to control outcome and to some extent do. This is something that's everyone's own opinion, but I c how the world works and there's always ppl behind closed doors controlling the outcome of sports, politics, education, forign policy, pretty much what makes our world run. And some of those same billionaires are nba owners.

None of the

other &$#%#&@! you said is relevant, nor does it belong on a basketball forum. Take that crap to Infowars. If it's rigged behind closed doors, why have the media and a rep from each team in the room? You don't think anyone has ever asked to take a look? Not to mention the fact that it's audited by Ernst & Young. It would take a LOT of hush money to keep the secret. Not realistic.
