Like I said, we'd know right away. Somehow that sucks now.

This sh*t is so rigged. Don't care what the motives are. Nothing about this feels spontaneous.

Did not know Clyde was a 14th pick.

Cool story-in the 1984 draft, Portland supposedly offered Drexler and the number two pick for either Ralph Sampson or the number 1 pick (Hakeem Olajuwon). If Houston had parted with Ralph, they could have had Hakeem, MJ, and Drexler on the same team.

Find a way to trade our 1st for 2 2nd round picks. I would rather have 2 role players than just 1.

Of course it's rigged, otherwise they wouldn't do it behind closed doors.

The odds of the Cavs getting 3 #1 picks in four years are astronomical. Like the same person getting struck by lightning ten times in one day.

It was like a 1% chance...not quite astronomical, but pretty lucky nonetheless :)

It was less than that, the Irving pick was actually the Clippers pick that was part of the Baron Davis trade. That one had a 2.8% chance of getting top by itself, I doubt that the total was 1%, more like 0.1%.

But yeah, this was an uninspired result. Heat had a great "reward the anti-tanker" story, and the Lakers & Celtics getting screwed by the lotto would also show it's not rigged (because them getting 1, 2 is just handing it to the storied franchises).

Phuck the Nets though, why not buy in better player in years where they won't get **** from their picks - go into cap hell to get assets, or throw really unmatchable contracts at RFAs.

They did. We matched it.

We should be so lucky. A player like Drexler or Hardaway would be great. :onfire:

Oh I don't like our chances at all. I just let myself dream a little. Those guys aren't common with any pick, let alone #14.

We'll be lucky if we draft someone that ends up having trade value down the road.

Let me put it this way, there's almost always a good NBA player (or more) on the board at #14 ... you just have to make sure that you take him and not one of the much more numerous bums.
