Mark Cuban admitted the Dallas Mavericks tanked at the end of the season, but says it’s not as orchestrated an effort as you might think. The Mavs owner appeared on The Dan Patrick Show Wednesday morning, hours after the NBA Draft Lottery rewarded Dallas with the ninth pick in next month’s NBA Draft.

The segment starts with Patrick asking Cuban about the lottery process, which Cuban says works “well enough, I guess.” Patrick pitches him on an alternative lottery system, one that gives teams an extra ping pong ball for every win they get after being officially eliminated from playoff contention. Cuban’s response is that teams could just not wait to tank, losing a lot early and then figuring things out after that to get a few more wins and get extra ping pong balls.
