 Hopefully Mclemore will fall to us, if not Anthony bennett or otto porter would be our best bet.

To be fair, have we ever not sucked?


For, like, half that season that one time.

We couldn't get a top pick this year, because we are slated to get it next year. With the return of the Hornets, of course. Stern is making it not so obvious. ;)

I think next year the Bobcats will have the 3rd best chance and end up picking 6th. I have no faith that the NBA cares about it's fans or that the lottery is a fair process at all. 

 

This is why nobody care about the NBA.

The 3rd day of the NFL Draft probably has more viewers than the NBA Draft

MJ does not make the pick. He gave all drafting responsibilities to Cho. And Cho has the best system of breaking down and scouting players of any gm in the NBA. We just get screwed where we draft at every year.

I just don't see McLemore falling past Orlando... yes they need a point guard, but when you have a chance to land a super star at a position of need; well you take him.

 

I could potentially seeing us getting fugged with Noel, McLemore, and Bennett going one, two, and three.

 

I dont know. Trey Burke is a highly thought of prospect even though no one talks about him. The PG position is a very important one in today's NBA. It'll be too hard to pass up on Burke at the no.2 spot. The only way Orlando would take someone other than Burke (Noel), is if they had the no.1 pick. Noel would have been too hard to pass up on.

Freshly updated draftexpress.com mock has us taking Oladipo #4.

Noel, McLemore, Bennett go 1,2,3

 

I rather trade down. Portland is in love with Oladipo. I dont know if I would trade all the way down to the 10th spot, but I dont know if I love Victor enough there. Maybe Shabazz at 10??

I have NEVER understood the point of the lottery. It doesn't stop teams from tanking(honestly it makes it worse) and by constantly screwing the terrible teams over by denying them good talent they continue to suck. One of the biggest appeals the NFL has is parody you'd think the NBA would figure that it and copy the model. I guess they are completely content with only 5-6 of their markets giving a shit though while half the teams struggle to be profitable.
