    +Los Angeles Lakers' pick will be conveyed to the Philadelphia 76ers via the Phoenix Suns if it is not in the top five.
    +Miami Heat's pick will be conveyed to the Philadelphia 76ers via the Cleveland Cavaliers if it is not in the top ten.

    Who will get the number one pick?

    I'm hoping Detroit and Charlotte leapfrog into the top 2.

    This would push the Lakers pick to 6, so it'd be conveyed to the 76ers.

    Then the top 6 order would be something like:
    Detroit, Wolves, Bobcats, NY, 76ers, 76ers

    Only one western team.

    Odds of that happening are virtually nill. I'd be fine if either the Kings or Nuggets were one of 2 teams to leap-frog up.

    What I'm saying, of course, is PLEASE have two teams (except say the Jazz, Suns, Thunder) leapfrog the Lakers... f the Lakers ;)

    Lakers AND Knicks in the lottery. If there's a conspiracy to be had, it will be if one of those 2 end up with the #1 pick.

    76ers could take 4th, 6th, and 11th pick if ping pong balls fall the right way.

    LEGGO Hinkie!

    Sobering truth:

    Completely agree. I hope the 76ers don't get that Lakers pick. I hope they also don't get that Miami pick. :mad:
    I am rooting for everyone else in the draft lottery.

    It would be funny to read the outrage and conspiracy theories if LAL or NYK win the lotto. I think it'll be Charlotte or Philly. I think the top 3 (not ordered) will be: Charlotte, Philly, Minnesota.

    Isn't having the lottery on the same night as a playoff game the most stupid decision the NBA could make?

    You could easily have it on an off-night so the next day the main story is just the lottery.

    This a decision the NFL would never make.

    I want the Lakers to get #1 pick because they'll be garbage anyway.

    Philly has the potential to be scary
