Being alone in the bottom 3 for the largest possible amount of combinations is pretty good, so I consider the mission a success. Now we just hope the basketball gods smile on us on lottery night.
As for the Bulls pick, I guess we should be mildly disappointed that they won and moved into a tie for 8/9/10? Especially should they lose whatever coinflip shenanigans will go on later? Or should we be happy that that pick has a even bigger chance to convey now? I'm not 100% sure on that one yet.
edit: looked over on the Bulls board and they were pretty mad about winning, so at least that's a good sign.
A month ago, the Bulls was 10th and with the trade looked to make the play-ins. Looking forward, a 8/9/10 tie is not a bad outcome for Orlando post the Vučević-trade. Seriously, when Magic management made this trade, the team was probably forecasting the Bulls to make the play-in and not make the play-offs. That would have slotted the pick as a solid 13 or 14 pick. That it is likely to be the 9th pick is good.
