let's face it, lottery seems a bit not lottery anymore :
2010 washinfgton has the bad year with the arenas problem and they get the first !

2011: cleveland has his star who left, and they end up with 1st too.
NBA like dunk contest seems to take a wrong path.
i' m not pissed because we have 5th, that is fine for me, but i m pissed because they cjeat on so manything, that can be good for th future.

i think fan will begin to think about their favorite sport league as a joke...
i think i will be part of the wagon for sure :

refs, draft, all-star, all about show. where is the sport in that matter ?

Just the fact that no one gets to actually SEE the ping pong balls drop makes it a joke.

When it comes to the Raps though should we really be surprised? This city has a tradition of supporting a loser no matter what..... we have one of the better attendances in the league in spite of the fact that we usually don't make the playoffs. Our owners are making money for the league. People are continuing to show up.

Why would Stern feel bad for us?

In the grand scheme of things...If we didnt get the first this is better...has we got the 2nd or 3rd we would have thought of picking up a position we dont need or would have been risky ie Kanter...I was almost convinced to jump on his bandwagon but the 1 yr rust, no exposure and wobbly knees for a centre kept me grounded...WE NEED A PG ...not saying this year is the end all for pg's but the top 3 pg's are better then what we currently have...I say pick up knight or walker ...hopefully BC has in that contract to dump bargs...pick up a free agent c or trade Bargs for a draft pick whatever i'm just hoping not to see him in a raps uniform ever again!

PS - the lottery so needs to go live ie balls droppin lol ...how is it when cle needed the number 1 pick in the last what 8 years theyve got it??? bulls ...rose....washington wall...Rigged, i agree with some of you guys the NBA is becoming a farce shit needs to change

Team representatives do. If it's rigged then the entire NBA is in on it.

And Kahn's had 3 top 6 picks, Al Jefferson, and took on a former #2 overall for peanuts, and now a #2 of his own, all in his short time there. Nothing's rigged. You're just bad at your job.

From D Smith who actually saw the balls fall...

So, what’s it like in there?

Mind-numbingly boring for the most part but kind of cool.

We’re shepherded into the room about 7 p.m., reps of the 14 teams, a handful of league officials, three very large security guards and five members of the media to act as witnesses, or hostages.

You walk in the boardroom and they want you’re blackberries or phones or whatever you have, as expected, although we could keep tape recorders if we wanted and could use laptops, as it turns out, because they had blocked any wireless access to the room.

But the speed with which it came together was stunning.

A dude from Ernst and Young walked everyone through the process, the balls were dropped one-by-one into the hopper (which looks like a toned-down version of any old lottery machine and was built specifically for the event) and then it started.

Three draws, each taking a minute and it was all over and done with by 7:23 p.m. if the chicken scratch in the notebook can be trusted.

Then? Then we stood around nibbling on cold cuts and cookies and drinking coffee and soda, chatting with the likes of Ernie Grunfeld and Billy McKinny, Marc Eversley and a handful of others.

Nice talks, very long wait while watching the whole process on TV like many of you were.

But you need to trust me on this: It so above-board and impossible to rig and witnessed by so many people with so much vested interest in the process that there’s no way it could be anything but legit.

I’m sure that won’t appease everyone but I really don’t care.

I like that Kahn calls it like he sees it.

It's good amusement.

Yea I just saw that and I don't think that will happen at all. We already have that 4 spot set with Davis and Amir. We will take or hopefully take a PG, Walker or Knight

NBA needs to go back to Lotto ball style. I miss the little ping pong balls with the team logo's on them.
