Our team goal at this point should be to lose the next three games and hope like hell Minnesota wins at least one game. That would put is in our best possible draft position ( could have been as high as 8th, but in typical hornets fashion we had to go on a completely useless 4 game winning streak and lock ourselves in the 10-12 range)
10th versus 11 is massive as it triples our chances at a top 4 pick. Seriously... that winning streak was so freaking worthless and stupid its annoying. These worthless moral victories are why we are consistently in mediocrity. without that streak we'd be sitting at 31 wins and in the running for a 42% chance at a top pick in a top heavy draft. UGGHGHGHGHHG
anyway. locked into the Hornets typical spot at 10-13. Bol Bol seems to be the only potential difference maker and also the biggest bust potential.
I'd say we're stuck in mediocrity because we've massively overpaid non difference makers to long term contracts.
Doesn't really matter who we draft as soon as we lock up Kemba and Lamb long term and trot out the Kemba/Lamb/Batum/Marv/Cody/MKG rotation we've seen for the past few years.
Gonna take a lot more than a good draft pick to fix this mess
