For the bottom-feeders in the NBA standings, the light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible. The regular season is coming to a close Wednesday and with it brings the excitement of the NBA Playoffs.
For the worst teams in the league, the playoffs won't be nearly as exciting as the May 20 NBA Draft Lottery, an event that will reveal the order of the lottery picks in the NBA Draft.
Although the season is certainly nearing its end, it isn't over yet. With a week still to go, teams still have a chance to impact their lottery pick chances for better or worse.
