It find it amazing but not surprising that the tanking critics and suggestions for changing the lottery are getting louder and louder just when the current system is beneficial to our team. Not that this draft is going to turn us around drastically. This draft and the anticipated improvement of our young veterans may get us back to where we were. We need a couple more of these high picks to get us going, although fans in Cleveland are still waiting. So, Adam Silver's reaction of this being a marginal problem is encouraging.
However, eventually a change will be imminent. Instead of all these elaborate alternatives for the lottery that have been suggested, I say keep it simple. Take the five worst teams, have five slots and a ball for each team and run it like a state lottery. There is enough parity with the five worst teams and less chance of teams tanking. I would like to hear your reactions.
