I would guess that the odds of the team at, say, #14 winning the lottery would still be as low as they were before, but just that instead of moving up to 11th or whatever that team moves up to first.
I doubt the really, really bad teams would have ever approved of a system in which there was a completely equal shot at the first overall.
