As abysmal as this season has gone, I thought we were chugging along with a pretty good lock at 9th and thus giving up a late lottery pick for Lowry. Warm and fuzzy all around. But as of today, Washington (3rd worst team in the league) has all of 2 (2!) more losses than us.
Wether the team tries or not, another stroke of bad luck or bad play and we would be down there.
So, is it worth being ok with that happening even though it brings the very real risk of giving up the 4th pick. Take a look at our schedule. If JV hadn't sidelined kyrie last night, we might be on the slipperiest slopes of the teams below us. It could happen.
