Because this in a case of a draft lottery, in which your ball can be picked at any time? Some teams are just more likely because they have more balls.

During the last draft lottery, teams lost a ball for each playoff appearance they had in the past 3 years and a ball for each first overall pick.

So Edmonton would have the same chance as Boston to win.

Columbus would have 5 balls, 3 of their own, LA's ball and NYR's ball.
