A dangerous journey down the rabbit hole of NBA Draft simulations

The internet is full of rabbit holes. From cat videos on YouTube, scrolling through your ex's Facebook feed, or being inundated with "suggestions" on Amazon, it's really easy to get lost in the traps.

Just like Pringles, once you pop, you can't stop.

Sadly I've found another, and I'm here to tell you about my journey down the rabbit hole that is "Wizards lottery simulations".

It all starts with just a curiosity. You see people on these various sites, tweeting about their experience.

"Oh look, the Wizards got the 6th pick." "Hey! the Wizards got Zion!" I tried to avoid it, tried all the self-control I could muster because I knew it would just be a tease.

The problem though, is I'm only human and I gave in and took my first click. That's when the spiral started.
