As far a tournaments go - I say all the teams that don't make playoffs should be thrown into a single game elimination tournament. The winner of said tournament gets awarded a pick in the Top 3.
A big bingo ball scrambler is turned immediately after the Final tournament game and the MVP of the winning team gets to reach in with the sweat still dripping from his hands and grab a ball numbered #1 (5 balls in spinner), #2 (15 balls in spinner) or #3 (30 balls in spinner) and is awarded whatever pick he draws.. Do you know how many eyeballs and $$ that would generate!? I'm hype just thinking about it!!
So if Hornets finished last - just outside the playoffs (#14 in the current lottery pecking order) but WIN the tournament and Rozier gets MVP and reaches in and grabs #2, Then we move up from #14 to #2 and the rest of teams slide back a pick. Simple.
