Is Dan Gilbert the perfect amount of hands-on?

I joke. But this is exactly why dumping games, wasting development time, and telling your players it is OK to lose just isn't worth it in the NBA. At least not when you already have a group of players you want to eventually contend with. The lottery is just that, a lottery, and throwing games for a couple percentage points here and there is just not worth the detriment you cause to your current players, their belief in the team's leaders, the culture, the complacency, or any of the other myriad side effects losing on purpose has.

All the moves now seemed to have worked out pretty well, but we were extremely lucky. Now Griffin, don't screw this up!

On another topic, what is the over-under on how many months it takes Silver to come up with a new draft ordering rule? I give it 2 months.
