Greg Monroe’s passing illustrates Pistons’ lottery odds

Ian Levy of Hickory-High has a cool feature where he equates each team’s lottery odds to something more relatable. Here’s his Pistons entry:

Detroit Pistons3.9% chance of winning the #1 pick – About the same as Greg Monroe‘s odds of assisting on consecutive made baskets by the Pistons.

Greg Monroe assisted on 18.6% of the Pistons made baskets when he was on the floor this season. His odds of assisting on two consecutive makes would be (0.186 x 0.186 = 3.6%).

Maybe Lawrence Frank should have given Monroe more playmaking duties. Then, the Pistons would have a better chance at the No. 1 pick. That’s how this works, right?

    Oddly, yes. Monroe having more playmaking duties would have led to more turnovers which would have led to more losses, and a better shot at the first overall pick.
