Regardless of opinion on the way the draft process works, the Minnesota Timberwolves surely deserve the first overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. The 'Wolves had a record of 16-66, which was the worst record in the 2014-2015 regular season. The only team that can be truly upset about the results are the 17-65 New York Knicks. Kudos to the Timberwolves.
I agree that the team did in fact deserve their pick for the draft. All teams should have at least one shot at something, and the same applies for practically every thing in life, and the ability to win too. I think the team was in deserving of being drafted and their pick shows that everybody gets one.
The Minnesota Timberwolves lost 66 games during the 2014-15 season. They not only deserved the first place pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, they NEED that first pick! After all this is the first time the Timberwolves have every won in the history of the franchise. Give them some LOVE!
Some people say there is a conspiracy that the NBA fixes their own lottery, choosing the team with the first draft pick based on the NBA's organizational interests. In 2015, some people feel that with the NBA's desire to tap the Canadian market, they gave the pick to the Minnesota team, whose home base is pretty close to the Canadian border and has several star Canadian players.
