I am genuinely curious; what would you prefer, a Klay Thompson 11th pick or an Andrea Bargnani at #1 with the magical lotto gods parting the seas for us?  Admittedly, I don't see Doncic or Jackson Jr. being a Bargnani but, that's probably not the consensus for the #1 anyway.  Hopefully you get my point; I'd be elated with nailing a #11 vs getting the luck of the draw, the former tells me we're on the better path right now.

At this point, I'll take it however I can get it.

That seems like a strange point to make.

I'd rather have the #1 pick than the #11. As should everybody

i think his point on the mojo subject is he would rather use the mojo get the pick right vs the pick itself.

Yes, and... Would rather have a Donovan Mitchell with 14m due over 4 years vs. a Fulz due 37m over the same period. That's success if we are looking for good mojo. Your mojo may vary.

We should all find a charity to donate to to charge our mojo batteries. Lol.

I think there's a 0.8% chance we get the 1st pick; and a 2.9% chance we get a top 3 pick.

I'd rather have Ben Simmons at whatever salary over either one of them and also the 13th pick in his draft (whoever that is).

 

With the #1 pick you get whoever you want, maximizing your chances to get a great player.  There's no way I go into this not hoping for that

Oh, we are definitely winning it.... no doubt!

That said, with the first pick in the 2018, NBA draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers select.... just to give Lebron more help.

I ran the draft lottery simulator about 50 times and got us bumped down to 12 three times, 1st once, and 3rd once - think Denver popped up at the top at least two times.  I'll just be happy to not go backwards tomorrow :)
