Change the Draft Lottery System?
I got this from the Chad Ford chat, I think it's a good idea personally
Don't think I've seen your thoughts on improving the lottery process. If you were in charge, what changes, if any, would you make to the system to limit the blatant tanking in recent years?

One change. I would tie each team's draft odds to their record over the past 3 seasons -- not just the last one. I think that would seriously curtail the incentive to tank a season. Now teams would be forced to commit to three years of tanking before they got their reward and then several more years of being very bad before they could add enough talent. That's too high of a price to pay for most teams and would force them to be more competitive. Ideally, the team with the worst record in the NBA has 25 or 30 wins ... not 15.
