Once again, the age limit was changed well before the lotto in 2006.

As for all those losing years between '95 and '06...

26th, 24th, 23rd, 27th, 16th, 13th, 13th, 19th, 28th, 22nd, 27th (of 29)

That's 11 years, with 4 bottom 5 appearances, including only 3 bottom 3 appearances, and 3 times not even in the lotto.

Looking at the odds at those bottom 3 places, the Raps were barely more likely to win once in that time than not at all.
I know those rules were put in place before the 2 lotteries. I'm just saying when the odds R in our favour the NBA seems to always take the icing off our cake.
