    Conspiracies are like horoscopes. You can always match them up after the fact.

    Cavs brought a teenager to represent them and lost LeBron! Give them the #1 pick.

    Sacramento needs to keep its team! Give them the #1 pick!

    The league hates the T-Wolves! Screw them year after year!

    Donald Sterling is a racist! Screw him by making their traded pick #1!

    Utah's a class organization! Move them up!

    People do witness the drawing. Darren Rovell tweeted yesterday, at least I think it was him, that he witnessed two of them. Yao Ming and LeBron, I believe. And there's a law firm or whatever present at all of them, right?

    Or do you think they're in on it, too? That it's rigged until YOU can see it?

    I've got no problem with the Cavs picking No. 1.

    I just thought it was strange how Navy SEAL Team 6 drew No. 2.

    You and I don't agree on much :D but you're dead on.

    What was the sob story of the last season? The Cavs...

    Who gets the No. 1 and the No. 4 pick? The Cavs...

    Rose goes to his hometown Bulls...

    James goes to his hometown Cavs...

    Ewing goes to the Knicks...

    I agree about the "not every year" but something is clearly fishy with the way this thing is done.

    Watching the Knicks lottery clip, I was half expecting Pat O'Brien to call David Stern 'so fuckin' hot'.

    Mizzou, you forgot: Duncan goes to a team that intentionally tanked it the previous year and was one great player away from a title.

    Or they get three picks in the top 16 of a pretty decent draft and are forced to take three point guards, one of whom sucks and the other two who never wore a Minnesota uniform.

    What game show isn't rigged?

    I agree with that. I've heard other say if it was rigged, Duncan goes to the Celtics and that franchise is revived. But if he goes to San Antonio, you get the classiest NBA player in recent memory (Robinson) a title.

    I'll always believe that the 1985 draft lottery was rigged
Draft saved Draft deleted
