    Miss the :) or at least ;) in his tweet here. Always thought they were buddies since their time together here. Remember all the trades Sam did for us by getting no value in return. Mysterious...

    Maybe its sarcasm? Seems like you can still tank and have a chance at a top 3 pick.

    The joke is that the NBA made the bottom 3 teams all have the same chance of getting the number one pick and Morey is sarcastically saying "look, tanking is magically fixed:eek:"

    All the lottery reform did was make people not want the worst record in the league. Teams will still tank to get bottom 3.

    maybe but if you're true intentions are tanking, you want the #1 pick. otherwise you're pretty disappointed. not all teams with the worst records are truly tanking. They just really suck in reality

    morey's a genius because actually now more teams have access to tank to bottom 3. now instead of 1 or 2 teams tanking it out for the last place, now you could have 5-8 teams tanking to reach bottom 3.

    The tweet is sarcastic and this is only a first step to address tanking. Anything more radical than this small measure would not have passed.

    Not really, there's not a huge difference in odds for the #1 pick between the top 3 teams and teams 4/5. Are they higher? Yes, but not a lot.
