The controversy continues as David Stern is still being questioned

Days after the Hornets won the draft lottery, people are still questioning the legitimacy of the process. I have highlighted all the evidence against David Stern, and I continue to believe he played a part in the Hornets winning the first pick. However of course I do not want to be biased, so here is a quote from the Boston Globe that suggest it may just be impossible to rig a draft.

 

“[R]eporters and team executives who have witnessed the actual lottery process — which is no longer televised, as it was 25 years ago — say there is no way it can be rigged. Each of the 14 teams has a number of four-digit combinations — the number weighted according to their record, meaning the Bobcats have 25 percent of the combinations.”
