If the Hawks aren't in the lottery this year, at least my second favorite team wins it. Yay!

DAAAAAAAAAAA BULLS!

Think the Heat would take a sign-trade with Ben Gordon and the #1 for Wade?

I didn't know this until they mentioned it on the local sports radio station last night. The Sonics had the second-worst record in the league. The way the percentages worked out in the lottery, they actually had the highest percentage chance to get the FOURTH pick, like 31%. Doesn't that seem messed up? Shouldn't the teams really have the highest percent chance to finish where they ended up in the standings, or at least close to it?

(Yes, I'm fully aware the Sonics benefitted greatly from the system when they got the #2 pick. It just seems odd to me that the most likely for the second-worst team would be the fourth pick.)

Personally, I'd like to see them rework the lottery so all of the draft positions were up for grabs, like they were in the '80s, but with longer odds that you would move farther away from your draft position by record.

You mean the same Dwayne Wade that's been hobbled by injury for the last couple of seasons and could easily be damaged goods by this point? I think you guys could do a lot better than Wade.

So the Bulls (with a 1.7% chance of pulling it off) got the first pick overall? Ok, between Portland last year and the Bulls this year, the lottery HAS to be rigged, right? I'm not complaining, mind you, because teams that pull a blatant tank job like the Heat did don't deserve anything and I'm happy that they didn't come out #1.

I don't think Dwayne Wade's will is any less than it ever was, but I think he may have already peaked as a player.

Absolutely. Add in the one-in-66 chance for Orlando a few seasons back. It's just silly...just assign the players to the teams you want, they do it behind the scenes anyway.

Which is pretty much how "we" ended up with Gary Payton back in the day and part of the reason we have the current system (unless I'm mis-remembering). I agree the Lottery was much more exciting back then, but I like the worse teams having much more of a statistical chance to get the 1st pick.



It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

I know that Walton was (and still is) known to speak his mind, but he was not nearly the 'cancer' in the locker room like Wallace is...Is that what you were implying? Walton was always a 'team' player...
