For everyone who thinks that professional sports might be rigged, here is another thing to add with it.
Hours before the NBA lottery a leaked video of ESPN’s rehearsal for the Lottery has the Phoenix Suns receiving the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft.
Fuck ESPN for doing a rehearsal anyway, even if it isn’t true… But if it is, fuck them even more.
Who else picks where according to this rehearsal?
FWIW – just caught the ESPN rehearsal for tonight’s NBA draft lottery. Rachel Nichols and Mark Tatum announced Phx as the winner. Hopefully this isn’t a sign of what’s to come.— Jon Fox, NBA (@NewLookKnicks) May 14, 2019

As of the time of typing this we don’t know if this is going to be true or not. We will have to play the waiting game. Will be pretty ridiculous if it’s true.
I don’t know what you’re referring to, but the draw hasn’t happened yet. Also, the draw hasn’t happened yet. And by the way, the draw hasn’t happened yet.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) May 14, 2019
The draw happens at 6:50p CT.
