    Adding data points doesn't do shit for an argument when the data points aren't representative of the current system. Drafting in the NBA 30 years ago isn't the same as Drafting the NBA the past decade. The G Leauge, international players, and NCAA Basketball are all substantially different not to...

    You know how many top 10 picks in the past 10 drafts have won a title? 2. Anthony Davis and Harrison Barnes. 2%. That is less than any of the percentages you have given. You can go back 20 years and it improves slightly, but the percentage is still under 10% and that is with guys like Dwight...

    Look the point isn't that you don't see a positive relationship with the quality of players and the earlier draft picks. Obviously that is the case. A #1 pick is more likely to be a franchise player than later draft position. This isn't debatable. My initial post you replied to was showing that...

    Oh, and if you want to talk about percentages, what percentage of top 10 picks win NBA titles? Its fucking low. Insert stupid doctor analogy here too. The chances of any NBA team winning a title in any given year, whether they have top 10 picks or not, are fucking low so I don't know why you...

    Not to mention that not every team that won with a top 10 pick drafted that player.

    Wow, on a spurs forum and you don't count a spurs team in your list. Duncan wasn't the star on that team. Furthermore, there's a reason that the teams that have done this have happened recently yet you're still going back 30 years. Who gives a shit what happens 15-30 years ago. It's not the...

    I mean the Spurs have done it several times before. Doesn't mean it's a lock by any means, but the point is that nothing about the first 4, 7 or whatever number of players in this draft that makes them a lock to be the best in the draft.

    Except the fact that 6 out of 15 all NBA slots from last year shows its not a needle in a haystack, is it. Its the exact opposite. You don't need a top 10 player to get a star in this league. God damn I show you X and you still think that it has to be Y even when you yourself are giving...

    Do you think all those teams who passed on Giannis and Jokic did so because they thought they were going to be what they were and just wanted other teams to have that caliber of player?

    Ok, but you just said the Heat didn't. And Curry was a 7th pick, hardly different than the 9th pick of the Spurs. And those Boston picks? Not from tanking, from trading with Brooklyn. They simply got incredibly lucky. Even the Mavs got super lucky by having 3 other teams pass on Luka. So if...

    The truth is that NBA teams sometimes need to get really lucky. While certain teams like the Grizz (and honestly the Spurs) have drafted fairly well, sometimes you just have to get lucky. Look at how many teams have passed on certain stars in this league like Jokic, Giannis, or Jimmy Butler. ...

    Uhhh, the Warriors tanked twice? When was the 2nd time? And the first time was driven due to injuries, not a decision to tank. The Spurs traded away their key players (or let them walk) this past offseason but the young core they have was too good to tank. You guys want them to not develop...

    Vongfong just broke Haiyan's record for the warmest eye. Insane.
  4. Did you hear that it broke the Dvorak scale and got rated an 8.1? Crazy. I shudder to think what would happen if anything close to that made landfall here.
  5. Dude, holy shit, Haiyan is a fucking monster.

  6. Yeah even though this is Miller's most talented team (by far) since he got to Arizona it's also his worst defensive team (by far) since he got to Arizona, so that's some good advice.
  7. I have a random question. What kind of defense does New Mexico run and if it's not zone do they ever switch into zone? Arizona trying to execute against a zone defense is the equivalent of a retard trying to do calculus, so if I know New Mexico runs a good zone D it'll be an easy bracket decision.
