Couldn't we get into the playoffs and still get a 9th or 10th pick?
I'm not sure how that all works. I mean, if this draft is as deep as we're saying it is, even a mid-high pick would be decent. We're playing good ball here, and have good cap space. We're up and coming. Right?

I really want something to cheer about for a change.

Nope, once you make the playoffs you're out of the lottery you're slotted in accordingly. In other words, let's say we're the 7th seed going into the playoffs we'd be picking in the 18-20 range.

That'd suck for the east like 8th seed with a 30-35 win season picking after 45+ west teams that missed the playoffs lol

30-35 wins wouldn't get the 8th seed.

are you not following the eastern conference standings?

8th seed right now has a winning % of .409

35 wins will get you a winning % of .426

sadly enough the way the east is playing this year...35 wins might get you in 8th place.

Yikes. The drop off from playoffs to not making the playoffs is huge.
I can see the pro-tanker's side of things here. How the hell have San Antonio been surviving all these years?
