Shabazz, Otto, Burke, Austin, Mitchell in that ordrr
Okc had 3 top 5 picks to get them where they are now so I guess another top 5 for us won't hurt
If we get a top 3 pick, trade for a first next season and some other player. Next years draft should be LOADED!!!

"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
Ahh forgot about green
In fact...why stop there? Let's t-word forever! Get all top 5 picks all the time and be the greatest team of all time! That keeps finish at the bottom of the league every year.
This is our game.

This is the last year it will help to suck - next year (pending what we get for Gordon in a trade or *hopefully* what he gives us on the floor when healthy) we could be as good as a very fiesty 4, 5 or 6 seed. Very worst case we should be 7th or 8th if Demps does a solid job this offseason.
P.S. no huge games tonight for our draft standing but Phoenix and Sacto play so go Kings I suppose.

Dell Demps - the new Jeff Bower
Can I just throw out my man from Toronto...Anthony Bennett! The best freshman in the country and IMO the most dominant player in college basketball right now. He is quickly rising up the boards and could very well end up being #1 pick. He is a clear PF... a rich mans Paul Millspa.
^^ Yah I dont think he fills any immediate needs for our team and with AD firmly locked in at PF there are other guys ...aka Alex Len.. that I have in front of him for us.
Just wanted to throw his name out because with Anthony Bennett(2013), Andrew Wiggins (2014), Trey Lyles (2015) Canada could produce back to back to back #1 picks and that is to go along with Tyler Ennis (top 5 recruit this year to syracuse), Kevin Pangos (Gonzaga), Myck Kobongo (Texas) and the abundance of canadians drafted in the last few years (Tristan Thompson, Corey Joseph, Andrew Nicholson, Robert Sacre, Kris Joseph etc.)

Huge night tomorrow - hopefully the Bees play hard and well yet lose again. Add to that a Cavs win over Toronto and voila - were in 2nd place!
We're doing good on our road to losses, I didn't mine us losing to the Blazers

Yeah it's important we lose as many as we can before Gordon comes back, because we'll probably be at least a .500 team as long as he is playing. That would probably bump us out of this abysmal Washington/Toronto group and up into the Orlando/Sacramento/Phoenix/Cleveland (now that Irving and Vara are back) group (picks 4-10).
I think there's no hope at a top 4 pick if EG10 really come back healthy. Best case would be 5-8.
ETA: I suppose if he plays very well there's the possibility of us trading him, but that seems counterproductive. He should be the cornerstone (no pun intended) of our rebuild.
people are acting like a Lebron type player is coming out this year... lol The difference between pick 3 and pick 5-8 doesn't appear to be that big at this point in the season.
I don't see all the Zeller hype. I get that he's got a nice offensive game but he's so skinny, he will be dominated on a nightly basis at the center position. I think he'll play PF in the NBA.

Schwan has charted this every year and the stats bare it out. The odds of getting an A or B player dramatically decreases after the top 5 picks historically.
