The Sixers Have a .8% Chance of Being Good Next Year

The NBA Draft lottery is tonight. Here’s how it works. All 14 non-playoff teams (yes, there are more playoff teams than non-playoff teams; the NBA is a joke) have a shot at the #1, #2, or #3 overall picks. After that, everybody picks in reverse order according to how bad they were this season. Without further ado, the Sixers odds to win the Nerlens Noel/Victor Oladipo sweepstakes: 0.8%. Odds are slightly better for the next two picks. Short of that, they’ll pick at #11.
