    Let's hear your conspiracy theories as to why a certain team got the top pick! :)

    Who will get the top pick?

    •Lakers pick is top three protected; if it falls out, it goes to Philadelphia(via Suns/Bucks/Sixers trade)
    •Brooklyn sends their pick to Boston(via Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce/Jason Terry trade)
    •Nuggets have the option to swap picks with the Knicks(via Carmelo Anthony trade)
    •Kings pick is top ten protected; if it falls out, it goes to Chicago(via Omri Casspi/first round pick for J.J. Hickson trade; via Andrew Bynum for Luol Deng trade)
    •Raptors get the less favorable pick of the Knicks/Nuggets(via Andrea Bargnani for Marcus Camby/Steve Novak/Quentin Richardson/2016 first round pick trade)
    •Wizards pick is top nine protected; if it falls out, it goes to Phoenix(via Markieff Morris for Kris Humphries/DeJuan Blair/first round pick trade)

    We could have had a 7% chance of the 1st pick. But we were too good to lose.

    Lakers get #1 pick as a consolation prize for losing Kobe. Philly gets screwed, again.

    The top of this draft class looks so damn weak. I guess Dragan Bender is the sexy pick just because he's seven feet and only 18, but do any of the other guys have superstar potential?

    Poor Philly. They'll never draft any great prospects.

    0.7%... pretty big difference, though still possible.

    And, I'll go ahead and predict it. Jazz get a top 3 pick... sticking another dagger in Rockets fans hearts for the 2015/2016 season.

    So the Nuggets have our pick and one more if they choose to swap with the Knicks?

    Nuggets could have three top 19 picks. (7-15-19)

    Lakers dropping out of the top 3 and losing the pick. It will make my week.

    I still think Boston gets the #1 pick, Philly #2, and the Lakers lose theirs.

    I am hoping teams in the East get better and make the East a lot more interesting for years to come.
