Top 10 NBA Draft ConspiraciesHere are examples in the NBA draft that prove that it is rigged.
The Top Ten NBA Draft Conspiracies
In the first draft lottery the biggest market team gets the biggest market player. The Knicks were not supposed to get even close to the number one draft pick that year. - Bronson
Well the balls turn where they may - 2storm
The LEAGUE OWNED New Orleans Hornets got the number one pick in the draft that year. - Bronson
Was it just a coincidence that the Cavaliers win the lottery the year that HOMETOWN star LeBron James is available? - Bronson
By the way I am a Bulls fan. The Bulls got Derrick Rose with the first pick in the draft, and the Bulls only had a 1.7% chance of getting the number one pick that year. - Bronson
They did horrible the last year - 2storm
Was it just coincidence that the Cavs got the number one draft pick the year after LeBron left for Miami? - Bronson
Sure when Yao Ming and LeBron James are available a popular franchise or the franchise of the hometown hero get those picks, but when players like Andrew Bogut and Andrea Bargnani are available, small franchises like the Bucks and the Raptors get those picks. - Bronson
This may be nothing, but wasn't it weird that Dikembe Mutombo congratulated the Sixers on acquiring the first pick just an hour before they actually did get the first pick? - Bronson
The Wizards got the number one draft pick right after a terrible season and the Arenas-Crittenton gun incident. - Bronson
Was it a coincidence that the year after the Magic drafted Shaquille O'Neal, they would get the number one pick again? - Bronson
The Supersonics were threatened to relocate so despite the fact that they got the second pick in the draft, they still managed to get the much better player out of Kevin Durant overtop of the Blazers pick, Greg Oden. Of course, the Supersonics still relocated. - Bronson
