With the light at the end of the tunnel marking the end of the NBA season rapidly approaching, be prepared to see teams take more drastic measures to be in a good position to capture a lottery pick.

Drafts loaded with this kind of talent are few and far between, and the bottom feeders of the NBA are well aware that his could end up being their last chance to secure a player that could go down in history as one of the all-time greats. The instant benefits that come with a great prospect are clear, so don't be surprised when these franchises aren't shy about their intentions in the coming weeks.

Let the tanking commence.
