A lost season doesn't suddenly make every organization equal, so not everyone should have a shot at number 1. However the draft shouldn't be based on only the last season either, but a total of the last 3 would be good. With the added caveat of no top 5 lottery pick if you already had a 1st or made the playoffs in the last 3 years.
In other words, only the current weaker teams get top 5 pick, like it should be.
Still I don't like it, for how many years this franchise has stunk, we should have no worse than the 3rd best chance at landing the 1st pick. 6.2% is not a good %. Shafted again.
