    It wasn't a ***** to the greatest tanking team of all time, the 1996-97 San Antonio Spurs.

    Second worst team ends up with the fifth pick. Can't figure that one out.

    Celtics get #5? Bill Simmons has written his last column.

    Can we get Gerald Henderson back?

    That trade is the second biggest curse in Boston sports history.

    The NBA Lottery is a F***ing joke. If a team wants to tank games to get a better pick than who cares. Its the team and their fans that are the one that have to suffer.

    How does a team get any better if they finish 2nd and end up getting the 5th pick in a draft. The whole thing makes no sense. That is why the NBA sucks

    The biggest losers here are the NBA, with their two big tickets now lost in the Northwest, squandered on two horrid teams that no one pays any attention too for 3 years till they move on.

    I am so sick to my stomach.
    I do not want to talk to ANYONE for the rest of this week.

    Never thought I'd feel the same way again just 10 years later (re Duncan).

    The more you think about it the more it just disgusts you.

    Fire everyone right now.

    Even worse, the 3 worst teams were Memphis, Boston and Milwaukee. Anyone notice that NONE of those teams got a top 3 pick? Why are NBA fans not outraged?

    The Celts Organization is cursed. If they don't make some sort of miracle trade (KG) they're doomed for at least another 5 years.

    The NFL system gets frustrating at times if you are a fan of the consistently good teams (not that I would take a high pick over winning.)

    But it is clear to me that the NFL system really is the best and the most fair. This lottery thing just seems like a bunch of crap.

    I'll tell you why the Celtics are cursed - because they think the only way to improve their squad is to get lucky enough in the lottery to land the 1st pick. Maybe a decent coach and a good personnel guy could build a playoff contender, but that's just me.

    The problem with the NBA is one that can never be solved to everyone's satisfaction. NBA drafts are ridiculously top-heavy. Unlike the NFL, the drop off in talent from the top pick or two to the following ones is tremendous. So it's easy for the NFL to develop a "fair" system because they don't have the problem of every draft having 1 or 2 superstars and 200 schmucks.

    The lottery was implemented to avoid teams tanking. If you don't have the lottery, you can easily damage the integrity of the late season games. It's a good system, just one that didn't bounce Boston's way tonight.
