    2019 NBA DRAFT

    We are due the #1 pick Except for the expansion Bobcats, aren't we the only team to never have a #1 pick? Some teams you have to go a ways back to find it of course, like the lakers in 79 or Celtics in 1950 etc.
  2. 8th pick, here we come. Write it down. Our front office is freaking dumb.

    New plan moving forward...

    and then we started the season 12-5 and were at the top of the west. What's your point? We went into the season not pre-determined to tank. You have to evaluate these decisions in real-time and pick the best course going forward. At 12-5 we looked like we would at least be around .500 and challenge for a spot. Not the time to tank because I think most would agree you make the playoffs when you can and have a good season when you can. Then we lost 17 of 20, or whatever, while we were trying and it became obvious a) we couldn't make playoffs or have good season AND b) we couldn't guarantee ourselves out of the bottom 8 even trying to win all the way out So then the choice becomes do we try to win and risk getting worse pick and not conveying and still owing a pick or do we just take this year's pick and start again next year? To me, trying to convey pick has low upside and high downside this year. It's a bad choice.

    Because it didn't make sense to tank then because we thought we had a team that could compete for a playoff spot. So it made sense to compete for the playoff spot. Now, we clearly see we don't have anything near that.

    This is the whole sunk cost idea. Don't throw good money after bad, don't dig up when you're in a hole. Don't worry about 4th order permutations of things 2 years in the future. You can control whether you try to optimize the pick the rest of the year. That's what you should do because that's the best option you have right now. Every decision needs to be evaluated and made independently. Is Parsons a good signing? Is Holiday worth 2 2nd rounders (not well if we shore this up maybe Marc and Mike can play better in more space etc etc etc or well we have all this cap money so we'd better spend it and he's the best option we can get) Our front office is not good at being levelheaded about this sort of stuff. We might make the playoffs in 2 years. There's no guarantee that we'll be a bottom 5 team with a top 5 pick in 2 years. There is a chance we can get a top 5, top 3 etc pick this year. Do that.

    Yeah, because they're dumb. You're going to give up a pick at some point, you can't fret about what might happen in 2 years. What if by not tanking this year we end up in the 7th position and 5th position wins the lottery and drafts Zion. We blew our franchise player because we were so afraid of what might happen in 2 years. Whoops. The sword is double-edged, people.

    In no way does he join the list of Darius Garland and Bol Bol. And nobody but you thinks Bol is a high lotto pick.

    Look at his advanced stats. It's insanity. And he's got a motor and is competitive. To me this knee thing is a non-issue. His shoe broke and he sprained his knee. If he landed on somebody's foot and turned an ankle would we call him injury prone also?

    Well. He's still going to be bigger and more explosive than everyone in the league with the exception of maybe Giannis. Though I'm sure he's stronger than Giannis

    Why? What are you offering for Jrue? With what capspace? You giving up future picks?
  11. Tank. The pick is a sunk cost. What do you do with sunk costs? You make decisions independent of the sunk cost. We should tank this year and try to convey next year where it's only top 6 protected. We ought to be able to do that at least. The suns last year are a bad example. They're moribund. Congrats to them on continuing to tank and acquiring all these assets and teaching them all to lose. Josh Jackson, Booker, Ayton, etc. Honestly, Suns and Cavs are poster teams for why no team should be allowed to win the lottery more than once every 5 years.

    Various Trade Analyses: Not good

    Yep. Don't blow your wad on minor transactions. Don't take underwhelming players from bad teams too.

    Woj: Grizz make Gasol and Conley available

    I'm sure toronto probably thinks OG is better than Mike or some other such nonsense.

    Woj: Grizz make Gasol and Conley available

    I hate twitter. All the raptors fans acting like this is a bad deal for them. Conley is straight better than Lowry in every regard and can create his own offense in tight games and has, you know, done things in the playoffs, outdueled Kawhi, Steph, etc. Gasol is better than Jonas, who is playing 18 minutes/night.

    Uh, it better be. Our front office would have to be stupider than even I thought to initiate a trade like that
