Wow... I didn't know Doc Rivers was such a tank Wizard. If the Celtics are so eager for talent they shouldn't degrade themselves like they are for a future number one draft pick, they should send Larry Bird through a time machine.

the worst record in the nba does not guarantee a sure no.1 pick . of all teams , the celts know this (remember tim duncan)
besides , greg oden is not sure he's coming out of college .

One thing you have to keep in mind is that the NBA has added 3 new expansion teams wtihin the last decade therefore, decreasing the odds of getting the top 3 picks in comparison to before that. You used to have 11 teams in lottery and now you have 14 teams. Do the math and you will see that when there is more competition, your odds will likely decrease, even if you have the most ping pong balls bouncing around for you.As the NBA adds more expansion teams in the future, you can assume that the odds of winning the lottery will diminish even further but this system is still the best way to go. It may seem unfair to allocate the teams that do struggle with horrible records along with the teams who tank on purpose but in this day and age, it's very hard to distinguish between which team is tanking and which team isn't. You also have playoffs teams (Kings, Clippers, Grizzlies) a year ago that have been hit with injuries and end up in the lottery. So in conclusion, the system of letting luck decide a team's fate may still be a slightly better choice than allowing teams to determine their own position in the lottery.
