If this is a make or break road trip to anyone on this forum, prepare to be disappointed. Our make or break games have long since passed. At this point we're just trying to avoid an 0-5. At worst we take one game, likely against the Kings. At best, we do go 0-5 and actually see some changes come the 15th.
Also, more and more I realize that there's no point in spiting OKC. Who cares what pick we give them? I could see being upset if they were in our conference but it really has no bearing on us in any way. We got Kyle Lowry, that should be good enough. If we want to be upset about the pick then we either have to make the playoffs (unlikely) or trade the chaff and tank for a top 3 (slightly more realistic). If we were ever going to aim for a top 3 pick now would be the year because either the player will have an impact or we make a package trade to add someone good enough to put us in serious playoff contention next year.
