Just looking at the remaining games on our calendar it will be a fight between us and Orlando to see who gets the most ping pong balls. Orlando is playing the rest of their games vs playoff teams while we have a pair of very winnable games down the stretch. Say we beat Detroit and Cleveland and finish with 20 wins (not outside the realm of possibility) and Orlando tanks the last 4 games- will you be upset?

Charlotte's (18-59) remaining schedule:

Orlando's (19-59) remaining schedule:

As long as they draft Dwight and we can get Emeka, I'll be happy.

How about a tie, so everyone is happy and sad at the same time.

IDK if it even matters. The last placed team hasn't got the #1 pick in something like 8-9 years, it's ridiculous (and rigged imo). They really need to change it.

Meh doesn't really matter to me, like Zaximus said in his post -- worst team never gets the #1 pick.

Although it would be nice to not be addressed as the worst team in the NBA.

Don't worry, if Orlando finishes with the worst record, they'll get the #1 pick.

Yeah, after Dwight left look for Orlando to get number one pick regardless. I change my mind, hope we finish with worst record and lose number one pick again. Perhaps NBA will be so embarassed that we will get number one pick next year ( a better year)

Sure I do. But, from the last two times that we loss out on the no.1 pick, watch for Cho and MJ try to possess the 2nd worst record this season. Then, watch we'd still lose out on the no.1 pick.

Me being the NBA conspiracy believer that I am, I believe this is going to be the year that the NBA and David Stern throws Charlotte a bone. Hopefully, they will see it as an opportunity to have the Charlotte market bounce back.

Rebranding back to the Charlotte Hornets, #1 draft pick, and possibly a new coach, and maybe a decent free agent acquisition to revive professional basketball.

I believe in building from big men first, in both basketball and football. Also, I love the players with the highest ceiling and most potential. I was one of the few wanting Andre Drummond last year.

That being said, I really want Nerlens Noel, and in my opinion he has the highest ceiling of anyone in the draft.

While he develops next season, we continue to suck, and maybe for good measure, hold him a couple of months and allow him to fully heal. Then maybe get a top pick in 2014 (wiggins, Parker,or Randle), as well as, 2 other picks. And we could have an extremely talented, young, cheap nucleus to build into a consistent contender. The key, as always, is the ping-pong balls. (but really its whoever the league wants to help).

^Agreed with all of that, even the conspiracy stuff. Kemba, MKG, Noel, and then Wiggins/Parker and Charlotte can finally start fielding a decent squad.

The "#1 pick" (note the ") would be nice, but having the worst record in the NBA back to back years sounds pretty embarrassing.

Worst record plus second worst record is still bad.

Whatever helps this team moving forward is the most important.

It would be fitting if the year we finally get the #1 is the year there is nobody worth taking at #1. On the bright side nobody we can pick will be immediately good enough to take us out of the running for the #1 pick next year.

The Magic will get the Number 1 pick and will select Noel. Reason being the draft is clearly rigged.
