Is there anything dumber...

Than the league deciding the order of the bottom of the draft by regular season record? How can the NBA champs not pick last? The Lakers should be picking at No. 30, right after the Magic. Then the rest of it can go by regular-season record.

They didn't want regular season record -- the one concrete way to evaluate teams that don't make the playoffs -- to determine the top of the draft, so they created the lottery. But then they use those same regular season records to order the playoff teams, when their playoff result is the much better indicator of their relative strength. I'm sorry David Stern, but that's just idiotic.

And, yes, I'm still pissed about the Bulls' picks. Still waitin' on that trade, Pax.
