The Milwaukee Bucks were able to achieve the worst record in the NBA this past season. The team finished with a 15-67 record, four games adrift of the Philadelphia 76ers who were just as bad.
The Sixers had a record-tying 26-game losing streak this season and were still unable to claim that elusive bottom spot.
The Bucks are clearly very proud of their losing record and as a result the 25% chance that they will have the number one pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
In fact, Milwaukee were so proud of all the ping-pong balls that they will get that they sent out a special Bucks branded ping-pong ball to fans this week.
The ball comes along with the simple message: "Own the future. Win the lottery."
The team are simply trying to gather some excitement before the event but the single ping-pong ball is just having the wrong effect. Having to rely on the NBA draft lottery is not a good thing and to keep on reminding loyal fans of their failure last year does not seem like good practice.
However, the Bucks are strong favorites to grab that number one pick and should they use it correctly it should help them to avoid the lottery in future years.
