I I’d expect this to pass easily if vote happens. Vote might reach 29-1, with only Philly against. Might be a few more “nos,” but not many
Hard to overstate degree of leaguewide displeasure with Sixers right now. Perhaps not entirely fair — they’re following rules — but big.
Sixers will justifiably argue changing rules mid-stream is unfair, especially w/ so many protected draft picks still to change hands
But league has made such mid-stream changes before, and momentum is clearly on their side.
Interesting twist is, I don’t think this proposed reform would change Philly’s plan for next 2-4 years.
Harris says Lottery proposal would be “a little bit worse” for PHI in short term, but better for his team in the long run.

LeBron James Still Uncertain for Season Opener
LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.
James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
