If you did it the way I am proposing, you would only have a 26% chance of getting a team prior to ABA/NBA merger and a 15% chance of getting a team prior to 1970 on each draw. This is significantly less than how it is currently.
Well, originally I would have said all five at once.
But if we go with the grouping idea I believe bfhendricks proposed, then I would say one at a time for each group.
Still better to use that list than your original method to weight the years properly.
