Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has a novel idea for the NBA Draft–make the two worst teams ineligible for the top pick.
That would prevent teams from tanking and may be a lot better than scrapping the exciting–and controversial–lottery system that, at the minimum, gives cellar-dwelling teams–and their fans–hope.
The NBA is reportedly considering getting rid of the draft in favor of a system in which teams that will pick No. 1 are predetermined in a 30-year cyclical wheel.
My suggestion for the NBA Draft = worst 2 records are not eligible for the first 2 picks.
