    Kings are saying they want someone who could help immediately, would you guys trade DeMar for the pick and McLemore?

    At minimum they'd also have to include a future 1st rounder. Then I wouldn't hang up the phone on Sacto but may try to fleece more off them.

    It would also be hilarious given how big a failure DeMar and Rudy were together here in Toronto.

    Ok...my bad.

    It's just really hard to believe anyone could call the lottery rigged...If it was the league would make much better choices, especially if they were going to give 3 in 4 years to one team.
    Yeah if LA or Boston jumped up, Ernst and Young would need an SEC inquisition.

    If LA had gotten number 1 the conspiracy would be everywhere.

    Maybe because Stern is gone, this is the first year it wasn't rigged.

    "What? Cleveland again! This is the reason we rig the draft, stupids! We can't leave the welfare of the league to some balls!"

    There going to draft Wiggins and make it a All Canadian team,
    The bright side is that our National Basketball team will be better as a result of those guys playing together.


    Maybe their economy is going to pick up if Wiggins reaches his potential?! harhar

    Well, I'm happy it wasn't a tanking team that won. Just an incompetent one.

    KINGS tryna trade their 8th pick. Ennis, Vonleh, Gordon (probably not), Lavine in that section.

    Who would you guys give up ?
    Former 8th pick Ross+20?

    I'd trade DeRozan for the #8 pick, IF another trade is already agreed upon to flip #8 and #20 for a high enough pick to draft Wiggans. Obviously this wouldn't get done until draft night, since I would want to be sure to get Wiggans.

    The idea that the NBA has been rigging the draft rather than just random chance seems to be almost worthy of a Louis Black monologue (or at least a shitty facsimile).

    "So let me get this straight, the NBA and a worldwide accounting firm are colluding to rig the draft year after year and ensuring the top pick is going to.....FUCKING CLEVELAND????

    It only makes sense the multi-millions of dollars hush money the NBA would have to pay Ernst and Young and the massive fallout if the conspiracy were ever made public would be more than made up by the DOZENS OF EXTRA FANS a Cleveland powerhouse would attract."

    Finally, the same people who are positive this is impossible to be random chance also buy lottery tickets and actually believe they have a chance to win!

    Wasn't there massive discussion earlier this year where critics felt the NBA had a tanking problem with most people feeling the NBA shouldn't be giving huge rewards to teams that were trying to lose?

    I think he means the cavs don't deserve him because they've wasted so many top picks on mediocre players. Kind of like they've had their shot, so let someone else have it now.

    I wanted Orlando to pick number one

    The Cavs and their consistently terrible management is being rewarded with high-value assets, over and over. Like the Clippers. Even though they've improved, that improvement is mostly a result of getting lucky in the draft, not from any strong player development, smart acquisitions, etc.

    Without the lottery, the Cavs would be on life support and probably deserve to lose their team or be sold to new ownership. I'm sure the other owners hate teams like the Clippers and the Cavs.

    Rigging? what rigging?...didnt u guys see that leprechaun GM rubbing some talisman pin on his lapel and carrying Gilbert's son's bowtie in his pocket to will those balls to fall the Cavs way? So much for Philly (the only team openly tanking from day 1) getting 3rd. That was a kick in the cojones because they really wanted Wiggins I believe.

    Oh I dunno.

    Its the single biggest freak occurrence in NBA history that the Cavs just got another #1 pick.

    Lebron will go back.

    Story will be huge for the NBA.

    Blah blah.....

    Ya nothing strange here.

    This is a team has had to work very hard to be a failure. I mean seriously? They win it again?

    I wonder if Toronto has enough to make an enticing deal to bring Wiggins back home?
