This isn't good tbh, you'll see as near playoff teams suddenly draft a cornerstone due to the increased lottery odds, all this does is to ensure the worst stay the worst.
It definitely helps our Memphis 2019 pick.
Why did they not put astop on picking 1st on consecutive years..somthing the Cavs have astonishingly accomplished in the past

As long as the Lakers always pick LAST and Celtics FIRST .....im Ok with the revisions
This is a pretty decent summation of my thoughts.https://www.si.com/nba/2017/09/29/nba-draft-lottery-reform-adam-silver-76ers-suns-knicks-bulls
Imagine it's February 2019. The three worst teams will have an equal shot at landing the top pick to draft Canadian guard R.J. Barrett, and there's going to be some very real incentive for the fourth and fifth-worst teams to lose their way into that top three, while the three worst teams will try to out-lose them to stay there. That's five teams with compelling reasons to lose.
