RE: 2055: FA Draft Lottery
(Totally kidding and said sarcastically.)

This draft order is more rigged than the NBA lottery. The Nukes owner, a clear friend of the commissioner and former Weaverball Commissioner with a rebuilding team in the "Stockholm Mold", somehow lands the #1 pick? Riiiight. Meanwhile, "tanking hard teams" like mine and Vancouver are moved down? Garbage.

We’re number 1! We’re number 1!

This is exciting! I’m always focused on the 2nd place teams moving up. I forgot that the “not worst” last place teams can too. I’m hoping to move out of reload mode sooner than later so this is definitely good timing.

Thanks for rigging the lottery, Ed! Tongue
