10:35 AM ET 11.20 | I vowed to boycott the NBA because they are boycotting the fans. But I've been receiving emails from fans who tend to believe the Cavs would be better off if the season is wiped out -- allowing the Cavs to have the top draft pick again. Not so. The NBA hasn't made it official, but it's likely to follow the NHL model. When the hockey season was lost -- they took the past three seasons and averaged it out to determine a draft order. If that happens the Cavs would draft -- yuck -- 22nd! They averaged nearly 49 victories in that span.

I have been long predicting the cavs to double dip on the pick and take harrison barnes, but this seems like a fair system to me. No point of worrying about the draft for now though, alot can happen between now and june.

That's a strange headline. Was anyone thinking the Cavs would benefit from a lost season?
