Let's be honest. There is exactly one guy who ultimately has control over whether the team finishes high in the lottery.

Losing 2 to the Knicks won't do it, fan tank rallies won't do it, trading Bargnani and Gay didn't do it. Even for those who don't like Casey, a few bad decisions won't do it.

I want one of those high picks. But it hasn't happened yet. I don't think MU is stupid, so the offers must be lacking. So until Rasual Butler and Kwame Brown get here, I bide my time and the fan in me still cheers during a Knicks ass-whipping. They can win at a .100 after that.

well given the time value of money, i.e taking into consideration what interest you could earn on the 90 and inflation, in most cases, it is better to take the 90 now. that's a basic financial concept and if you don't agree take finance 300. or google it for that matter.

given the probability of getting a superstar talent, which is what this team would need to get to really warrant gutting the roster (i.e not extending lowry and trading him, and derozan, and possibly/probably Amir) it's not worth it. Derozan will be an all star in the next 2-3 years, and you can quote me on that. All stars don't grow on trees, nor in even supposed loaded drafts. remember the 2012 draft everyone was going absolutely fanatic over? not as fantastic as they predicted was it?

F**k. This organization/team are cursed. Not letting the raps have the #1 pick. The 2006 draft was the first year where HS players are not allowed. When this team should've taken on long deals for picks instead it handed out long deals and looked to preserve 5-10 million in capspace for nothing. This team is still far from a hotspot for FA. KL still hasn't been dealt but if he's kept then this team could potentially be a tax team next season. This season when getting a top 6 pick could get a possible franchise player this team is playing to be the champ of the worst division in years in probably the worst conference in recent history. Meanwhile it isn't a guarantee that it could even win in the first round. As fans of this franchise/team - we really are masochists.
