While some teams can't put up the wins to play postseason basketball, they do not necessarily walk away empty-handed. Seeing as these teams need help, the draft lottery could be just the ticket, or ball, to change a franchise forever.
Some of the teams mentioned seem to be fixtures in the lottery. They haven't improved via draft and likely won't see playoff action anytime soon. However, we will also see some new additions to the drawing after the upcoming season is through.

The lottery shouldn't be considered a bad thing because of the endless possibilities it opens for a hopeful team.
Besides, you have to start somewhere, right?
