Updated: Apr 18, 2020



We have some bad news: The regular season is 1,000,000,000 percent over.


BUT! With that reality comes the crystallization of the NBA lottery standings.

  • New York’s flurry of wins at the end screwed itself into a nine percent chance. 

  • This will be San Aontonio’s first lottery since 1997, when the Spurs drafted Tim Duncan.
