    Official NBA Elimination Thread

    First team out: the Lakers!!


    But the real reason for this thread is to run an experiment. I heard an interesting proposal to eliminate tanking--instead of giving the top pick to the team with the worst record, you give it to the team with the most wins after elimination. The worst team still has the most opportunities since they're out first, but it rewards teams that give their best effort until the end of the season. I'm going to periodically update this thread as teams are eliminated, and at the end of the season I'll see how the draft would be different.

    Team - Record at Elimination - Final Record - Wins after elimination

    LAL - 22-44 - 27-55 - 5
    MIL - 13-53 - 15-67 - 2
    UTA - 22-44 - 25-57 - 3
    SAC - 23-44 - 28-54 - 5
    PHI - 15-52 - 19-63 - 4
    ORL - 19-52 - 23-59 - 4
    NO - 30-40 - 34-48 - 4
    DEN - 32-40 - 36-46 - 4
    BOS - 23-51 - 25-57 - 2
    MIN - 38-37 - 40-42 - 2
    DET - 29-49 - 29-53 - 0
    CLE - 32-47 - 33-49 - 1
    NY - 34-45 - 37-45 - 3
    PHX - 47-34 - 48-34 - 1
