    I agree. We need to keep the lottery, but change the odds.

    Right now, if you finish last, every ticket in the lottery is a winner.

    You always win a top 4 pick.

    Our bench unit did pretty well in the second quarter last night.

    For what it's worth, boxscoregeeks.com has Kyle sitting as the 17th best player in the league today. He could slip, but top 25 looks pretty safe.

    He is statistically tied with Dragic as the...

    To be different:

    1. Drummond is a beast: the way he sucks up rebounds is unbelievable.

    If you have Harden on your team, you get 4 points a game more than you get with Demar on your team.
