    Default "How to cure tanking"

    I saw this referenced on Grantland today in an article about the NHL, but as the author states it could be applied equally well to basketball.



    If you don't have 15 minutes to spare, basically the idea is to determine draft order by the number of wins a team gets after it has been eliminated from playoff contention, thus creating a sort of mini-tournament for the top pick where the worst teams would have the advantage because they are the first to be eliminated and so would have a head start. At first glance, seems like a cool idea that would eliminate tanking (at least after a team has been eliminated from the playoffs) and greatly enhance competition at the end of the season. What do y'all think?
