I believe you when you say it is crooked. The year the Magic got it was ridiculous. Why does it have to be so private?

That being said- the whole draft process is crooked. The balls are drawn in private, only the top officals in the NBA gat to actually see what happens. I can promise you right here today that if the Knicks don't make the playoffs they will get a top 3 pick in the draft. Stern will make certain that a team that plays in one of the top 3 markets doesn't suck to long.
