Barkley : I Have the Solution to Tanking

Charles Barkley says he has a solution for tanking in the NBA.

Don’t reward teams who tank.

Give every team in the lottery one ping pong ball, instead of rewarding teams based on who has the worst record.

“My suggestion — the NBA is too stupid to listen to me — I said just give teams one ball,” Barkley said Tuesday on ESPN’s Mike & Mike Show. “Don’t give teams extra ping polls by the more they lose. I think only twice in the 20 years has the team with the worst record and the most balls got the No. 1 pick. Only twice in like 25 years. So don’t give teams extra balls because they’re losing games. Just give every team in the lottery one ball. That would be the easiest way to handle it.”
