For a league that likes to entertain, could the lottery have been less entertaining? Did they take a cue from Miss America to decide how to announce the draft order? Was the set based on a game show from the 60's or a call center for the Jimmy Fund? Why the heck aren't they actually picking the numbers on tv and determining the order for the world to see? First of all, that would be much more entertaining. Second of all, it would at least appear to be on the up and up.
To erase all doubt of illegitimacy and to up the entertainment value, they could have fans help with pulling out the numbers. Maybe they could use one of those clear booths that they do those cash grabs in and throw in ping pong balls. The person could grab numbers and push them through a shoot or something. Now that would be fun. Even if they did something crazy, they could still get it all done in a half hour. Conversely, if they wanted to stretch it out a little longer, they could do that too.
