Adam Silver gets a standing ovation from @Espngreeny on how the league has handled tanking. 👏
I think the lottery should be done, best record after playoff teams gets first pick and then go down the line. Teams will play to win that way, no tanking, will force owners to spend money on free agents to get better and draft smarter
Bad teams won’t have a chance, what free agent would come to a situation like that. They may be maxed out on salary, they may not have tradable assets. Plus your giving the team who misses the playoffs barely the advantage, that means those teams would tank to miss the playoffs
Imagine thinking that anything is going to fix tanking, imagine being that stupid. Tanking is an embarrassment, but it’s the only thing 75% of the league has in order to be successful. The point of the draft is to create parity, not give teams with superstars already another one.
Completely disagree, now the Lakers get blessed with top 5 talent to go with a monster like Lebron. AD gets the best player in the draft., if he chooses to stay. Teams who were at the bottom will remain at the bottom again next year barring some major trade moves.
