How are the odds against Cade becoming a star? He was an elite high school prospect playing at a high level as a college freshman. He’s a 6’8” point guard in the mold of Magic Johnson that is a great shooter. He’s hit game winning shots this year in college. There is nothing to suggest that he won’t be a star in the NBA. He will easily be the best player on the Bulls if they draft him next year.
Go through the draft history and look at how the top draft picks actually pan out. I believe someone posted the lottery odds above but most of these players do not turn into championship level franchise cornerstones. This wasn't a commentary on Cade as much as it was about the draft in general.
Even then, you only have a 14% chance of getting him.
And then when you end up drafting 5th-7th and don't get your franchise savior, you tank again...
This draft has 7 quality players. I’m not saying tank for a draft pick. I’m saying avoid making the playoffs and have a bottom 10 record while developing and seeing growth from this core. That is the best case scenario. Having losses to the 2 L.A. teams is actually a blessing in disguise. The core is developing and getting better and record wise the Bulls are keeping themselves in the lottery.
