    Starting this now since the lottery is tonight.
    http://www.nbadraft.net/


    First point, not sure why Ayton is everyone's consensus #1 pick. In Today's NBA why is any traditional big man considered better than more prototypical large yet-skilled positionless players like Michael Porter, Jaren Jackson Jr, the Bridges brothers, and even Doncic. To me, while having great size and speed, a guy like Ayton should be in the 3-5 range while guys like Porter, Jaren Jackson Jr and perhaps both Bridges considered for #1-4 picks. Also guys like Bagley seem more versatile, bc they are long enough to be a huge small ball 5 but small enough/wiry enough to develop a reliable jumper. They can all be plugged into modern systems and always be on the court even when the opposition goes small, while guys like Ayton would force the team to go with bigger / more old school traditional lineups. Not saying Ayton isn't talented, but it just seems valuing skilled bigs is more from the past 2 eras than the current shoot first, positionless era.


    Other point is holy shit, some of these tanking teams will be crazy talented since they all engaged in The Process, like Phoenix, Dallas and Philly. They seem to always be picking in the lottery these days, while teams like the Spurs always pick in the dumpster diving shitty range. And it's not like Dallas has been that bad. They must have been stockpiling picks, good on their GMs.

    If ESPN's wondering why they're losing subscribers, the way they're milking the fuck out of this lottery is indicative of a reason why.

    The Grizzlies had to beat Denver, Minnesota, and Portland in March didn't they

    Not that it matters because Chris Wallace is still the Grizzlies' GM.

    Sorry my dude the Grizz need to suck for like3 more years to catch up talent wise to Philly/Kangs/Suns. They're in the Hawks/Mavs territory right now. Good thing is after Kawhi bolts Spurs will then be at the absolute rock bottom

    Didn’t know Jami Gertz is a part owner of the Hawks. NBA keeping it within the Tribe. She’s still very bangable.

    Don't get paid enough to keep up with lottery picks. Spurs offering no incentive either.

    Mavs will just fuck it up anyways..this is a team that signed Wes Matthews to nearly 20 million per year, tried to build a team around DeAndre Jordan and was Miami's primary challenged for Hassan Whiteside..oh ya and Harrison Barnes as a leading man

    They can't wait to sign Julius Randle to a max deal, you know it's coming..whoever is making these deals should have already been fired(is is still Don Nelson's son?)

    Cuban seems to call the shots mostly these days. Don’t forget passing on drafting Giannis so that they could conserve cap space to chase Dwight Howard.

    If they’re smart they stay away from Porter or Bamba. I’d bet my life Porter plays less than 100 games in his career, and Bamba is Nerlens 2.0
