    Default Would you rather...

    Snatch the 8th seed and get swept away by Miami in first round OR finish 9th and give OKC the worst possible pick?

    Doesn't really seem like we have a choice but, I would go with playoffs and hope that Indianna catches Miami In the last 20 games

    I think the pieces are there already for the most part. I'd rather get an established player via trade than take another gamble with even more rookies you have to build for several more years at this point.

    Regardless of how far they would make it, getting into the playoffs this year would definitely help rejuvenate the team and fans into believing again.

    Finish 9th and let OKC get the pick. The coming draft is the best time to see OKC use our pick as it lacks star quality. Besides getting it over with would be nice.

    Finish 9th.
    only so we can have another trade asset moving forward. Besides I would hate to find us 4 years down the road having a tanked season and giving OKC our number 1 overall. If you want to make the playoffs this year, you probably want to make them for a few years in a row, and you are most likely going to find yourself owing OKC an unprotected lottery pick

    Playoffs:

    Pros: Experience for the young players. Tasting of what it takes to try and win a new environment, and new tempo of game. National coverage for now, and big picture. Attracting free agents, staff etc.

    Cons: Pick stays with us, but a poor pick, and takes away our ability to use it as a trade asset.

    9th Seed:

    Pros: OKC gets a low pick. Gives MLSE and Toronto ample time management to make decisions upon head office, roster,
