In the current system, it's only for the first round. The later rounds revert to the order of the standings.
e.g. Edmonton won the lottery last year despite finishing 2nd from last (29th). They had the 1st pick in the 2nd round, but reverted to the 2nd pick in the 2nd Round, 3rd Round, etc.
Truth should never get in the way of a good persecution complex.
