Let's see how it goes. I'm not going to argue with people who justify support of blatantly losing. I understand that it "might" increase the percentage of obtaining a higher pick but it's still a gamble. Look, a team with less than a 3% chance got the 1st pick.

Lastly, in this weak draft the difference between 5th and 12th is not that significant.
I disagree. Especially after working guys out. If you end up with someone you believe is destined to ride the bench at #12 because that is all that is left, you'd want the #5.

Now who are you who just came to tell us to cheer the team more? Jerryd Bayless? Julian Wright? Come clean. Who? WHO?
