    I hope Philly gets the top pick and the crowd in the peanut gallery chant in unison "Hink-ie" "Hink-ie" "Hink-ie".....all while Colangelo sports an awkward smile.

    2016 NBA Draft Lottery Thread

    EDIT: Forgot this thread existed. Thanks for the merge!


    Interesting things could happen tonight. Will the Lakers come up with the next star to come in since Kobe is out? Will Philly finally get its payout for all their years of suck? Find out next time, on Dragon.... I mean tonight at 7 on ESPN.

    Would be amazing if Minny wins. KAT, Wiggins, Simmmons, LaVine, Shabazz, and still good trading chip in Rubio.

    He is pretty correct.

    Boston and LA both get top 2 picks. Makes for a great headline. The rise of the 2 Legendary Teams. Bird / Magic talk for a few months etc.

    Philly needs to just go away with this tanking ****.

    I really do hope Lakers don't get it but again the Lottery System is rigged. Anything behind closed doors is..........

    Why would NBA allow biggest market (new York Knicks) to not win lottery last year, fall to fourth, and allow KAT to go to small market Minny?

    They didn't give Boston Duncan. The Celtics were then what the Lakers are now, a legendary team in disarray. They had two high lotto picks and San Antonio got #1. All part of the conspiracy, I suppose.

    Your mom rigged up a pretty sweet swing in my room, behind closed doors.

    Anyway, I'm so sick of these big market teams winning the lottery every year. I mean, how many times can the Celtics, Lakers, Knicks, and Bulls win this thing before people start questioning its legitimacy?

    Apparently 3 times in 31 years is the answer.

    Minnesota Timberwolves
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    New Orleans Hornets
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    Washington Wizards
    Los Angeles Clippers
    Chicago Bulls
    Portland Trail Blazers
    Toronto Raptors
    Milwaukee Bucks
    Orlando Magic
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    Houston Rockets
    Washington Wizards
    New Jersey Nets
    Chicago Bulls
    Los Angeles Clippers
    San Antonio Spurs
    Philadelphia Sixers
    Golden State Warriors
    Milwaukee Bucks
    Orlando Magic
    Orlando Magic
    Charlotte Hornets
    New Jersey Nets
    Sacramento Kings
    Los Angeles Clippers
    San Antonio Spurs
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    New York Knicks

    I'm praying for the Sixers to get #1 and #4. Colangelo will build a dynasty, but whenever says what a great executive he was, some 99er will say Hinkie deserves all the credit, just like Paterson built Dawson's championship team.
