NBA teams tanking/resting players
Is it just me or do people think the NBA draft lottery system is basically broken?
Teams still tank to make the lottery, which essentially means instead of 3-4 teams tanking for the number 1 spot (pre '85), 6-7 teams are tanking in a race for the bottom 4.
I know its all about money these days but with 2/3 of the season gone, teams that know they cant make the playoffs basically tend to rest their best players with injuries that would otherwise come back from injuries.
Is there a solution for this madness?
