    How to fix the Nba draft?

    How about teams can drop more than 3 spots.... Also how about at the final 20 game mark every win adds a pct point on to a lottery team wherever they end up? Say a team like the Lakers who finished 3rd ending up winning like 6 in a row that would add 6 pct points or hell 6 points on to their pct of moving up? It will stop teams from tanking and the top 3 teams really wont win enough games to really fall pct wise if they really are the worst teams in the top 3 and the teams from say 4-14 would all have much more incentive to win thus making the finals games interesting.

    Of course there would be a cut off... like the 13th team wouldnt be able to have a similar pct of that in the top 3 but they could jump their pct from say 0.5 to say like 6 pct and so on down the list.

    Interesting idea. I hate teams tanking; I don't bother watching those games. I have not enjoyed a laker game since Kobe was playing; too much tanking.

    Input on a fantasy land idea? That is the type of input it deserves.

    You want a circle jerk around an idea that is flawed and has a 0% chance of even being considered? Have at it. Thread will probably be on page 2 in a day or two.

    you bring nothing of substance to any post except constant *****ing... How about you come up with your own idea or wait for it... ignore the thread? You came in to post about a flawed fantasy idea without bringing anything of substance as usual... Just once I want you to use your brain and bring something to a thread... I will wait... Come up with any idea at all because we both know the draft lottery is flawed as ****.

    Does the NBA draft need fixing? Teams aren't tanking because the NBA draft rewards it, they're tanking because the NBA is currently a two team league and it's pointless to pursue winning without at least one elite player.

    it really does need fixing... it rewards tanking 100 percent. 2 team league or not the draft process is pretty ****. I do agree though that the super team **** is a big cause of the problem over the past 15 years plus.

    the heat got **** on because they finished with the same record as the bulls who faced a team that sat all their players the final game or some ****. Thus the red hot heat missed the playoffs.

    I think we have seen a surge of tanking recently, partly because everyone is waiting out GS/Cleveland Browns partly because the system rewards teams for doing so.

    But the only team to move into the top 3 this year was the 8th spot Kings. Phoenix tanked and dropped from 2 to 4. The Lakers moved from 3 to 2, because destiny demands the Balls apparently, but everyone else moved down a spot. Philly got to 3 thanks to their pick swap.

    The last three years have been a rarity where the worst record got the worst pick, but before that it hadn't happened since 2004 and before that 1990.

    you can't fix tanking without the disincentivizing it which creates massive other issues. I think a straight lottery with no odds would be the best way to completely get rid of tanking, but teams on the bubble of the playoffs would then tank to get into the lottery. You can also accidentally create a super team which is the reason they got rid of it after the Magic won 2 in a row and got shaq and webber(who was immediately traded). this isn't a new issue though. Teams have been low key tanking for quite a while. its more pronounced now, but everything is more visible now.

    What's wrong with the draft? How many wins has Philly got for all its suffering?

    Every team outside the playoffs gets 2 ping pong balls. Every team eliminated in the 1st round gets 1. Draw ALL picks 1-22. Completely eliminates tanking. There's no incentive to be worst, and there's very little incentive to try and miss the playoffs, which would be weighed against a minimum of 2 extra games of income on national TV. The bonus is that 1st round exits could get really good players, and propel them into contention, making for more parity and teams with a legit shot at a title.

    You simply can't say "we need to help bad teams get better odds" and not expect teams to TRY and be bad.
