NBA: Time to Ditch the Draft Lottery

The NBA Draft Lottery is fun, and it gets the NBA into the A-block sports cycle, but it seems to have run its course.  The lottery system has been used for 30 years and hasn’t done a whole lot to discourage teams from tanking, which is the excuse the NBA used for instituting the lottery (when the far more believable scenario is that they just needed a way to ensure the New York...
