    We currently sit in the #20 spot (#11 draft position of 30), and would be in.

    Did you see that crap Damian Lillard said? He said if he doesn’t have a shot at getting into the playoffs he would sit out every game that they play this season I get their trying to make things fair but just resume the season, have everybody play 5 games and after those 5 games who ever is in the playoffs is in, none of this play in stuff

    I don't think there's any way the Spurs would make the "playoffs" but still have a chance at the lottery. Being the #20 seed would probably just lock them into the 11th pick.

    It would be some if they just took 10 teams from each conference though.

    If it really is just 1-20 by record and conferences don't matter, I'd imagine the play-in part would be 13 vs 20, 14 vs 19, 15 vs 18, 16 vs 17. That would match the Spurs with the #13 Mavericks in the play-in round, with the winner taking on the #4 Clippers. Two pretty bad matchups for the Spurs, though it's doubtful they would make it past the Mavs anyway.

    I didn't realize that there are only 13 teams with records over 0.500 anyway. Moving up just one spot would have given the Spurs a sub-0.500 play-in round opponent (the Grizzlies sit at #14).

    Maybe there would be some legitimacy to the Spurs playoff streak continuing if they make it out of the play-in round and into the 16-team playoff bracket.

    Can you blame him? Which superstar players on a bubble team wants to play five games and then call it a season? It's beyond stupid.

    And I agree with him when you read his whole comment

    "It would suck not to get in the playoffs because our thing was, we had fought ourselves back into position to get a spot," Lillard told Yahoo Sports. "We had our starting center and starting power forward coming back, so we had a lot to look forward to and for a great reason. Now, they're healthy and have extra time to train and rehab while everybody's rusty. So now, they won't be coming back as the only rusty players. And if everybody's rusty, [expletive], we can come in here and beat everybody. I do feel like if we do come back and our mind is right, we can beat anyone.

    I just feel like that would be the matchup people want to see," Lillard told Yahoo Sports. "And not to say nobody wants to see Memphis, because they're in the eighth and they've been in the eighth spot for a while. They've earned that. You can't take anything away from Memphis. They play hard, they're exciting and they've got a lot of young talent. The Lakers would have their hands full playing against them. Memphis beat the Lakers this year. Memphis would have nothing to lose. I feel like both series could be a little bit hectic for the Lakers, but I think more so us, because of the experience and where we are in our careers.

    But if the league says it's only taking playoff teams, then I'm off to a head start in my summer training. I'll be pissed off because I feel like they basically stopped the season and went straight into the playoffs. We're chasing the team with the toughest schedule in the league and we're in ninth place. That would be weak, but it is what it is."

    I don’t know man Imo it’s shady of him, his team shouldn’t have sucked so bad if he wanted to make the playoffs lol also with this pandemic going on it’s not about him, it’s for the betterment of the league and making sure he still gets payed his money (he signed a Supermax). And he should want to play for his fans, having NBA basketball back will bring a lot of joy back to people

    Damian Lillard said he won't play when the season resumes if the Blazers don't have a shot at the playoffs.


    "If we come back and they're just like, 'We're adding a few games to finish the regular season,' and they're throwing us out there for meaningless games and we don't have a true opportunity to get into the playoffs, I'm going to be with my team because I'm a part of the team. But I'm not going to be participating," Lillard said. "I'm telling you that right now. And you can put that [expletive] in there." The Blazers are 29-37 and 3.5 games back of the 8th seed. Nothing has been decided on yet in regards to how the NBA will resume the season, but you can mark the Blazers down as a team that will be hoping for a postseason play-in tournament.

    Any teams already mathematically eliminated don't return. The remaining teams below seed 8 play in a mini tournament. The winner plays the current 8 seed for the 8 seed in the normal playoffs. First round (or all of them) of playoffs is race to 3.

    Any team that wants to abstain from the mini tournament has that option.

    NBA should make an NAG (Not Any Good) tournament for players like Dame who raps about how great he is but can't even qualify for an NBA 8 seed.

    I think the Spurs would have to be one of the final 8 (or 16 if the Conferences consolidate) to be considered a playoff team for purposes of the streak.

    Logically, if you "lose" the play-in you would be a non-playoff team and in the lottery same as any other non-playoff team -- but who knows.

    It would be either 8 or 20 make the PO. the 20 are playing for a shot to be the top 8 and go to more traditional PO from there. it is not just going to be the bottom teams playing but all playing in a round robin tournament and then the top 8 making it to the more standard PO.

    That's how the Lakers end up with the #1 pick.

    I wonder if draft position will be adjusted depending upon the final standings of the playoffs.

    As long as the NBA is going straight into the playoffs. Trying to salvage anything out of the regular season would lead to disaster.
