    You can see the Raptors' draft odds for each pick in my original post.

    yeah I'm a little slow on the uptake from time to time. I didn't get why they were blank there.

    Last time I didn't watch the Raptors won the darn thing. Perhaps I tune out this time around again?

    # If lotteries are set, then I'd say yes (CB4 trade payback + Stern and BC being close friends + big market with young core waiting for franchise player). Otherwise, nope.

    # Definitely

    The lottery is only for the #1, #2 and #3 picks. After that, the rest of the draft goes in reverse order of the standings at the end of the regular season. For example, Charlottee ended the season in 30th place, has a 25% chance of getting the #1 pick and can't pick any worse than 4th overall.

    The entire second round goes in reverse order of the standings at the end of regular season. For example, if the Raptors were to get extremely lucky and win the lottery to get the #1 pick in the first round, they would still hold the 8th pick in the second round (#38 overall).
    One exception is that we tied with Golden State and since they won the tie breaker they got 7th in the first round, but in the second round we pick ahead of them hence we actually have the #37 pick while Golden State has the #38.

    No need to watch that waste of time, drawn out shit.

    It gets summed up in 20 seconds in the highlight packs on sportsnet, the score, etc.

    I'm not against televising it. But, if I'm not mistaken they drag it out for an hour. An Hour! That's about 55 minutes too long. The only thing people care about are the top five.

    I mean sure I'd like to know where the raptors pick and the other 13 for that matter. But, I don't want to hear the over-analyzations by those moes for like 45 minutes.

    I guess that same line of thinking can be used to distinguish those who watch all 82 (or 66) regular season games versus those who watch the highlights.

    You could do what I do and that's record it and start watching 15-20 late.

    That's actually not a bad idea. I'll try that.

    It is either:

    a) no fun if I have to explain it, or

    b) nonsensical.


    Either way whatever.... to each their own.

    If I'm not mistaken it always takes place at halftime of whatever Eastern Conference game is on that evening...*edit* I may be wrong. This year it starts at 8.

    Anyways, since I plan on having the Raptors win it, I'm definitely watching. Besides, what the hell else are you gonna watch on a Wednesday evening?

    Yeah, in previous years, I remember it being televised during halftime of a playoff game...which means 10-15 minutes max.

    How so? GSW won the higher pick on a coin toss (this was the tie breaker). That higher pick slot continues to the 2nd round. NBA.com confirms this in their draft order list.
