raps performance and the 2011 NBA draft
 
A lot of people on here want the raps to tank in order to get a high draft pick. However, while thinking about this i have a slight concern: will top draft studs declure for the nba draft if a lockout is going to happen? if there is a lockout shouldnt the raps be concerned about their lottery pick?

I think we should stop talking about the lock out and the draft together
draft position determines the players rookie contract
so if they're good, they're in and not risking going down the next year

Listen, you people are delusional, and honestly kinda stupid. How can people still expect a high draft pick, when, looking at the standings now,we would would be getting the 9th draft pick.....there are 8 other teams in the league that are worse then us, including 3 in the west with only 6 and 5 wins. This tanking thing is never going to happen, lets hope we play a little better and actually make the playoffs this year. WE WILL NOT BE GETTING A TOP 3 PICK....get over it

Teams That Are Behind us

Minnesota 6-19
Sacramento 5-17
L.A. Clippers 5 -20
-------
Detroit 8-18
Cleveland 7-17
Washington 6-17
New Jersey 6-19
New Jersey 6

Dude wake up. The Raptors are 9-16. They are 2 or 3 games from getting the No. 1 pick. The way the Raptor's play defense and the consistency issues of Bargnani, this team is going down. Unless BC uses the TPE and the expiring contract for a star player, its a tank year.

lets not forgot when chicago got d-rose they were projected to get the 8th or 9th pick my concern is that guys coming out of college may choose to remain in college for an extra year and then declare for the draft in 2012 because who wants to get drafted if they wont play for a whole year?

Kids who don't want to do college work.

Most of the time some(not all) big prospects will go to class for half the year just so they can stay eligible for the whole year. After that they will quit going to class b/c they know they're done with it cause they are leaving for the NBA draft soon and they just don't want to go. They just have to get done with one quarter/semester so they're eligible for one year of College Ball.

It's impossible to compete with the Clippers. They outsuck everybody.

I agree, even if we tank we'll be lucky to get a top 5 pick.

The season is still young. Theres still lots of time for the Raptors wheels to fall off and end up in the basement.

last year we begin the season and suck with more talent.

This year we suck, with less talent but maybe more agressivness.

i don't say it will be the same and we will be in the 5th at the all star game (away of that i presume) but like dark knight said the season is still young, so who knows what can happen.

maybe we can finish 30th or 16th... who knows.
but the high draft pick should not be our concern right now.
the learning process of our young should be.
