The Sixers are reportedly fighting the NBA’s new proposed lottery system.
NBA Draft operates via a goofy lottery system. There has to be a better alternative than picking ping-pong balls out of a machine.
“Tanking” is a word that has been mentioned more this season in the NBA than ever before. With a potentially star-studded NBA Draft in 2014, and an increasing number of teams willing to lose now, in exchange for potentially winning later, teams are “tanking” for ping pong balls in the 2014 draft lottery. They’re not losing on purpose, but they’re not trying to win.
