Nope, Edmonton would be tied for the least amount of balls. Each first overall pick a team has had takes away a ball.
Can we please sticky this, this question is getting asked a lot.
Everyone starts with three balls, and each time a team has made the playoffs in the last 3 years or got the 1st overall pick, one ball is taken away. Every team gets at least one ball.
Essentially, the only way a team could get more than one ball is if in the last three years, they haven't had a 1st overall pick more than once, and have missed the playoffs in AT LEAST 2 of the last 3 years.
Of course this isn't the confirmed method, but it is by far the most likely scenario because it's actually pretty fair.
