Correction, it is impossible for us to get a Top 3 pick

We blew our. Chances with Morrison

So many good players and potential future all-star players in this draft, but I'll wait and see if they will live up to the hypes.

Wiggins, Parker, Smart, Randle, Gordon, Andrew Harrison, or Exum will improve this team. That's 7 guys and we will be able to land one of them. I really think we'll end up with the Detriot pick and I would love to grab a McGary, Embiid, Aaron Harrsion, McAdoo, or Austin there.

SMFH!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I dont get why you made such a dumb statement. As much as I liked Noel, he's not anywhere close near being an offensive player Jefferson is and probably will never even come close to it. Lastly, Cho and MJ arnt trying to fully "tank" the season for Wiggins. We've seen many times in the past where the worst team doesnt end up getting the no1 pick. We're in a position to get better for the future and likely will still be picking in the top5-7. Wiggins is talented but aint the only intriguing prospect in this draft.

The legend of Wiggins has also grown a little too far IMO.  People saying he's the best prospect since LeBron, are seemingly comparing him to LeBron.  He's one hell of a prospect and the probable #1 pick, but the drop off to Randle/Parker/Smart isn't that much. There's even been chatter lately from some ESPN guys that Randle could potentially be the #1 pick.

 

Barring a miracle, the Horncats should be in position to land a Top 5-7 pick as chuck said. If the ping pong balls cooperate (and the conspiracy theorist in me says they will), we could land one of the top 3 guys. If not, and we end up around 6-7...we're still getting a potential All-Star.  I'm not a fan of the Jefferson contract, but I'd rather have Al/Zeller than Noel.

We'd be lucky to land Randle. The way this team is built Randle could be the better fit anyway. Another pick and roll guy to play with Kemba and you can play him in ISO as well. His physicality/skill combo would be a nice complement to Zellers skill/athleticism, and MKGs physicality/athleticism. Give me a gunner with the next pick and we can stop talking about lottery picks.

Wiggins is the next superstar in the league. we will regret signing a 29yr old center who is just as bad on D as he is good on O

SMFH!!!!!!!!!!!

If Al is as bad as you claim, then we'll still suck with him and won't miss out on Wiggins.

 

Just like having the worst winning percentage in NBA history kept us from missing out on Anthony Davis. And the second worst record in the NBA kept us from having the first pick this year...

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
