15 Biggest Basketball Conspiracy Theories
Until 1985, the team with the worst loss record would get the first pick in the draft. This led to rumors of game tanking — that is, losing purposely to get dibs on the best rookies. The National Basketball Association instituted the draft lottery as a way to deal with tanking and to allow for a fairer playing field.

The one pictured here certainly isn't cheap. It's the original movie car used in "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball." It was sold by RM Auctions in 2010 for $4.6 million. Compared to that, maybe the $450,000 you'd have to pay for one that never appeared on the big screen isn't so bad after all.
