why not do it live? there's been far too many coincidences to say that it's not.

Utah gets the #3 pick because of Deron Williams' departure and again with sales, ticket selling.

Washington gets #7 because they already had #1 last year, so Stern can feel good about bumping them 3 spots back.


IT'S ALL A BUSINESS MAN!!!

To all the people that say the draft is rigged, you know that when they do the actual lottery there are seperate reprasentatives for each team that actually watches the whole machine doing the lottery.

Kanter is a kid still, the year off argument is absolutely ridiculous. I worry more about rumours that he has bad wheels.
Hasn't it been 2 years or slightly more?

Ugh.

Well, hopefully Kanter is gone by then and we can pick one of the other PGs. I'd live Kemba, but think he'll be gone. I'm ok with Knight too.

This sucks!

tanking isn't losing purposely, it's vets sitting out nursing minor injuries and developing the youngsters. essentially, decisions made that don't put us in the best possible chance of winning. that happened this year.

So, why is the world ending?

Top 3 are still likely to be Kyrie, Williams and Kanter. After that it's a crap shoot and we very likely end up with Brandon Knight, who's a damn good player and knows how to play defensively.

Even though the Clippers fans must feel like shit, at least they still have 2 stars. We still fucking suck and have no stars with the 5th pick in a terrible draft. If we draft another euro I'm gonna seriously question following this team

+1

Maybe 30. The team was playing decent early in the year when Reggie was healthy. But even if not 30, they lost 5 or 6 wins by not having proper depth. At

+1 about the joking.

But I think it was 1 part suckage, 1 part lots of youth, 1 part injuries.


___________

All you guys bitching about tanking not working can cry me a river. I'd rather pick 5th than pick 7th or 8th like Sacramento or Detroit. We might be able to get a decent player at 5, or by trading up using out pick in a package. Let's wait and see what happens.

@DK
I like Brandon Knight, too.

Where is the positive evidence for your claims? All you have is some results that you can't believe. That's a logical fallacy of reasoning (ie. bad logic) that could be described as either an argument from personal incredulity or an argument from ignorance. Believe it or not, when you have a small sample size of drafts, it is not that surprising that you might have disproportionately low probability events. That's how stochastic processes work.

Oh well, i was raging like every else in this board when i saw the lottery, but now i realize all we need is a decent point guard or centre and we will most likely get Knight so mission sorta accomplished. Now we just have to get rid of Andrea and Jose for a ok center and we will turn this ship around.

i guess it's not all that bad, the thought of knight in a Raptors jersey does intrigue me but regardless i think we should trade the pick.

Not sure chig.

I just think he's fine. He's been playing lots of ball, just not for Kansas. I saw some footage of him, kid is big, and smart and has 3 range. I just worry bout those knee's, rumours say his knee's are bad.

How really knows anyhow.... a lot of energy wasted worrying about rookies and drafts. Ya never know. Toronto has had luck lately. DD may develop into a real player, and Davis, he just may be a top PF in a few years.

Ya just never know!

Yes. Another person who likes Knight.

You, DK and I should start a club.

I have mixed feelings about Kemba.
