You could literally make up a storyline like this for almost every team.
The Cavs get the #1 - "their 5th #1 pick in the lottery since Lebron"
The Lakers get the #1 - "Lebron rigged it. They are trading it for AD"
The Suns get the #1 - "want PHX to have a big 3 and rising team in the West"
The Bulls get the #1 - "They get their best star player since MJ. They are back!"
The Knicks get the #1 - "KD and Kyrie to NY. The Knicks will form a big 3. The league set it up"
Why in the fuck would they rig the draft for a smart market team like New Orleans? Makes zero sense.
Zion is trying to go back to Duke....
You realize what the odds are to win the lotto but people still actually win it.....right?
Lakers have NEVER won the lottery. Knicks have not in 30+ years.
Tell me, who is rigging it and why?
Conspiracy Guy will conspiracy.
Except you aren't right. There's no P in well.
The NBA and what year are you pointing to? The reasons change year to year.
You get every team is in the room, right and would need to be in on it? In what world would Mark Cuban say, "sure, go ahead and give the #1 to anyone but us...whatever helps the league."?
You do understand what 14% odds to win #1 means, right? That 86% odds are against the Knicks winning the #1 overall pick. Simply put; these new odds make the draft a very different thing now. Tanking moves from the bottom of the draft to the edge of the playoffs.
I'm liking Culver more and more I look at film/highlights. I think he would fit the Cavs system perfect. He seems to be closer to 6'7" so he has size as well.
Not crazy to think they nail the pick but damn that was a punch in the gut last night.
How can you re-sign a player you don't have?
Yeah when I saw N.O., L.A. and Memphis all move up in the top 4 with one spot left that sucked, it could have been worse though, could have been #6 lolz
Honestly, if the Cavs didn't get the #1 but were still in the top 3...they most definitely take R.J. Barrett. All the hype around this kid, I'm not buying it. So the way I look at it they can get one of these two guys: Culver or Hunter instead of Barrett. I like them both more than Barrett. I gotta look at it a different way LOL
And I hope you are right. Didn't see RJ play enough to think you aren't.
Not to mention he has grew about two inches over the last year. We saw Giannis grow, this kid could end up being 6'9". He is lanky and long, super athletic and will only get more athletic.
What about comma, question mark? exclamation point! colon() semi-colon; etc?
I wonder if ZION pulls a power play and refuses to sign with New Orleans forcing them to maybe even trade the pick
He flashed a Danny Ferry, John Elway, and Eli Manning look all rolled into one.
Separate names with a comma.
