NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo tweeted out a congratulatory message to the Philadelphia 76ers Tuesday, hours before the Draft Lottery was to take place.

Now, either Mutombo isn’t aware of how the lottery system works or he’s just tipped us all off to a humongous conspiracy.
The Sixers — a team Mutombo played with for two years — do have the best chance of any team to land the top spot in the upcoming 2016 NBA Draft after having won just 10 games last year.
But it’s not a given…or is it?
If Philly does end up with the No. 1 overall pick, this tweet might just have found a place in NBA infamy.
