And just like that things stay the same.

For the last few weeks there had been a lot of talk that the NBA and its Owners would vote to approve a new Lottery re-form system to disincentive losing and more evenly spread out the odds of landing the top level draft picks.

That vote occurred today, and despite what was expected to be a win in favor of change, according to Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski 13 NBA teams voted “No” and the measure lost.

According to Wojnarowski, the Phoenix Suns, Philadelphia 76ers, Oklahoma City Thunder, New Orleans Pelicans, Detroit Pistons, Miami HEAT, Milwaukee Bucks, San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats and Chicago Bulls all voted against changing the system.

The proposed plan was set to change the lottery system as early as this season, and seems to have been voted down.

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
