I can't wait to see where we pick, time to put Nerlens Noel in a soon to be Hornets jersey.

Interesting factoid. For the previous eight years, the two teams with the most balls have not won the 1st pick even though they have a combined chance of almost 45% each year.

we are due some luck from the basketball gods, but at least we are guaranteed top 5.  

 

Noel skinny and injured, Ben M a wall flower in the tournament, ...meh...wherever we pick,

we just got to get lucky.

Hey said this is another thread but gonna re post it here.

 

 

My money is on the Kings winning the lottery. The NBA is going to provide them with an asset since the team is staying in Sacramento, also as a way to smooth over owner/city relations. They have a 6.3% if winning according to NBA.com.

 

Bobcats will likely secure the #2 or #3 pick. 

 

 

Also just noticed we don't have a second round selection. WOW.

Also still owe the Bulls a first rounder and the Spurs a 2016 second rounder.

Agree w/ this. Especially the last part. Going to be very hard to convince me it's okay to invest a #1 pick & a ton of cash on a guy who won't be ready for the start of the season. It's amazing to me that Hornets fans are still clamoring about this dude with the type of injury he had a few months ago. 

 

McLemore has NBA size and skill set but vanished in some big games this year. 

 

I know Hornets fans don't want to hear this but if we win the #1 pick, it's Trey Burke. Hopefully they will be able to move down and select Anthony Bennett, Shabazz Muhammad, or the guy I believe will be the best player in the draft in a few years Victor Olidipo.

I say the Hornet's get screwed again and will pick 4th and take Alex Len. Noel, Bennett and Mclemore will be off the board and it will come down to Len or Oladipo.  This is how little faith I have in the NBA lottery.

The Blazers still owe us a 1st rounder right? It seems that they have owed us a first rounder for a while. Isn't it "lottery protected" or something? What the hell man we are never going to see that pick if it keeps staying lottery protected. 

 

This is THE draft that you would want to have a couple second rounders.

Oladipo can do a lot of things very well. I'd be happy with him at #2 overall. Also like Anthony Bennett & Shabazz.
