Additionally, Atlanta had the best chance of winning at 25%, then Tampa Bay (second worst regular season record) and the two expansion teams had 14.6%. Atlanta dropped to #2 for losing the lottery. Minnesota won a separate coin flip with Columbus to pick third. I'm pretty sure either of the two expansion teams could have won the lottery if the correct numbers were chosen.
Awesome, thank you very much for the response
