As long as they stay outside top 4 record, only teaorethically, at 5# worst record they can draft 5th, but odds for that are basically statistical error ( 2,2%).

Where they are at now, their pick has 76,4% chance to end up being 9th or 10th.

Orlando will either lose pick ( Bulls draft top 4) or get 9-16 pick, regarding of where Bulls will land.


Stop killing my hopes and dreams Pepe, lol.

Oladipo was only legit great for 1 year of his whole career. That was also last year of his career when he was healthy
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

You guys think Gordon will accept this role of glorified waterboy that averages 12 ppg on 8 shots or he will leave and seak bigger role ? I highly doubt this is what he envisioned being,when he asked a trade.

He will leave once he becomes a FA, mainly because Denver won't pay him the money he wants to.

Yeah, I don't see too many buyers lining up for the money he is hoping to get, similar to when he resigned with us.

I think he will spend this year and next being an excellent role player and chasing a championship, then when his contract is up, he will be in his late 20s and he can go for that last big contract in a higher usage situation.

If he can win a championship and earn another big contract then why not have your cake and eat it to ?

Makes you wonder about the “second thoughts” rumor we heard before the trade dropped.

It's always the same. Lavine had 39 in the first half and ended up with only 50. Every time you get excited when someone has a huge first half they always come back in the second and get like 8 points. The modern NBA player just can't go 4 quarters like back in the day, smh.

Man... maybe we shouldn’t get rid of Clifford... there are some really TERRIBLE coaches in the nba right now. Scotty Brooks and Billy Donovan make Cliff look like Phil Jackson

Cliff is fine, no reason to jump to another HC.

Execlly my point for last 6+ months.
Magic can do lot worst than Clifford,especially because no good coaches will accept being cannon fodder for rebuilding team that does not have young superstars in sight.
