It worked out for small markets like NO and Cleveland.

Tanking isn't dead. There will always be prospects worth tanking for, regardless of how many teams have equal odds of getting the first pick.

But tanking ahead of a weak draft class is gonna be a really hard sell now. Imagine having the worst record in a weak draft class and ending up with the 3rd or 4th pick

nonsense. if anything it promotes more of the middle of the road teams to tank to get into that top 7-9 area.

It backfired because the worst teams aren’t getting the best players available at the top. I understand it’s a lottery but maybe reshape the chances a little more. A straight cut from 25% to 14% was a little drastic

if anything they should change the way it's formatted. teams in that 7-11 range can only move back or into the top 4. Why can't they move up to 5 or 6? There should be some movement for teams to move up/back but not teams moving way up or back.

Tanking is overrated. 76ers tried it as a strategy but they are just now getting results from it. Took about 7 years to get to the east semi finals.... teams like Minnesota, Sacramento been tanking for a decade. It doesn't work well at all.

No it didn't it's going to be based on how good the scouts think the draft is if there are 5 players that good there will still be tanking. Teams will say hello I want to be in the top 5 at least which is still possible

ppl just confuse sucking with tanking.... you aint tanking, you just suck. For the NBA at least going by how the lottery rules go, tanking doesn't exist because you can end of the season with 5 wins and still get a 5th overall pick lmao. It does in football tho because the worst record gets the 1st pick.

You really think the league lets lotto balls dictate it's future? They gave NO that pick to save basketball in that city. If you gotta "save" basketball in a city you shouldn't be in the city. And you dam sure can't let the next big star end up there.
grown men really believe this nonsense
