    I just want to apologize. It's probably my fault we didn't win the lottery, I didn't join the prayer circle prior to the lottery starting
    I apologize as well. I didn't know we were having a prayer's circle!?!?

    Makes me wonder though, they JUST lost CP3, and now get the #1 pick? Things that make you go, "Hmmmm....."

    It doesn't make you go "Hmmm..." at all, it makes you go "FUCK LIFE"

    If we're looking for a silver lining, we'll be picking 37th in the second round, rather than 38th if we drafted before the Warriors.

    LMAO! I feel ya brother!

    Didn't the Cavs lose Lebronothon James the year the won the lottery? I think we need to lose our best player the year prior to the draft lottery. Oh wait, we don't have one... :P

    Its completely rigged. Well played NBA. Well played.

    They did not quit down the stretch. They might have rested Ariza and who really knows what is going on with Okafor's knee but the guys who did play, played hard. Much like Casey in Toronto, that is a testament to Monty Williams as a head coach.

    Positives for Toronto:

    1) They didn't slide.
    2) Anthony Davis is in the West.
    3) Brooklyn has lots a valuable trade chip meaning it is less likely Dwight Howard ends up in the Atlantic.

    All good points.


    It would be nice if we had a opportunity to grab Barnes, but I think we will find a good player at the 8th spot.

    There's talent to be taken where we are. I have faith in BC when it comes to drafting.

    Well, if you're desperately looking for a silver lining in all of this; when you consider JV coming from overseas this year (hopefully with no hiccups), we have 2 lottery picks! A general consensus #2 pick if drafted this year in JV (sorry I have no back up for this statement) and a #8 pick. So perhaps we did okay.

    Pretty nice roster all of a sudden :P
    Not really. A LOT of injury concerns there and limited offence

    At #8....Let's see...
    P. Jones, just to give Casey a crack at him, to see if he can be moulded.
    A. Rivers, not the best talent, alot llke Bayless, but wants to prove himself more than anything. Again, maybe Casey can mould him.
    Barnes, if he's available. Why not?
    Waiters....interesting. A big throw of the dice...still, has a good defence game, could be Wade-like, probably more Ray Felton like....interesting

    Damned Arsenalist had me dreaming #1 with his article....BTW, Arsenal, my fave footy team, after TFC that is...

    The pick here in this draft at #8 will kinda cement BC's reputation as a good drafter. It's going to be a spot where he'll have a good number of decent prospects to choose from. At this spot I am not sure whether he should go bpa or need. Hopefully both converge.
