If the Blazers get a top 3 pick (#1, preferably), then I don't think it matters if the rest of the draft is weak.Sheed30 said:This draft is weak.
Great post...agreed.Foulzilla said:I also can't get behind the rooting for losses mode. I totally understand the logic, and realistically realize the benefits of a higher pick. However, I still want the players to win, to show me they are improving. To show me something that compels me to not only watch them now, but know that the future will be brighter.
That being said, this "season is a failure if we don't get a top 3 pick" is a bad mentality in my opinion. We have absolutely no control over the ping pong balls, so even if we have the absolute worst record, we still could end up with the fourth pick. Personally, I already think the season is a failure though, because we didn't improve over last season. That's the only benchmark I'm personally interested in.
I dont think so. #1 has the best chance of winning the first pick, it may not be true of the #2 and #3 picks, I've never paid too much attention to the odds on those.Utherhimo said:so getting number 2 would be better than 1 before the ping pong balls? but doesnt number #3 have the best chance of actually landing the number #1 slot?
