There is a point to the worse teams having a the best chance for the highest pick- they need it!
Tanking sucks, but I would rather have it than the worse teams having less of an opportunity to improve.
Not only that but it would start other kind of tanking.
If my team (Bucks) was good enough to make the playoffs but I knew they couldn't compete for it all. Once there is a generational all star coming out.......I'm going to have them play just well enough to be in playoff contention then tank right at the end.
Knowing we now will face the worst team in the "lottery playoffs" makes it even easier.
Also, if I'm a star player who doesn't even know if I'm coming back to said team....or worse I know I'm leaving what do I care what pick we get?
