And just because I'm uneducated, assuming they use the same lottery system they used in 2005, how do they decide how many balls each team gets?
From what I found on the interweb:

Each team begins with three balls in the lottery barrel. For every playoff appearance in the last three years or No. 1 overall pick over the last four years, a team loses one ball.
So Calgary would have three balls in the draft lottery under that scenario, and Phoenix would have only one, yet they would still win it.
