    True but record wise…

    37-117, worst team back to back years, no top pick. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯

    Stone was smiling because now he can pick the player he really wants (Banchero) and not be criticized for skipping Chet or Jabari.

    You late bro... Duke combo forwards are legit.

    Battier - meh
    Deng - beast
    Parker - injuries
    Winslow - bust
    Ingram - beast
    Tatum - beast
    Zion - beast

    When the Rockets don’t end up with the #1 overall pick again after yet another year of tanking and receiving a severe case of the beats by every team in the NBA, then what? Tank again?

    What's wrong with a 3rd? You act like teams go from worst to best in 2 years.

    Just cuz I'm commenting doesnt mean I care, it means I think its ridiculous you are belly aching 1 year after Harden left the team.

    I mean Paolo may be gone by #3, curious to see if Ivey stays at 4 or someone takes a flyer on him early, I wouldn't be shocked if this draft doesn't stick to the script. Jabari may slide, we'll see what happens.

    like I said rarely. Tatum, Ingram? Zion? and Kyrie maybe.

    everyone else support players.

    The worst team usually don't get the #1 pick, which is why no need to tank.

    No we dont tank again since the Rox dont own their pick anymore.

    If you dont like tanking you should follow the Kings since they never tank. They've been out of the playoffs since forever but have only 2 top 3 picks since 1991.

    This is funny.

    I used to feel this way. My stance softened at the end of last year. I'd now want a bag of chips, but a flavour I don't love, like BBQ

    It’s clear that if the top 3 teams make their picks, all 3 bigs will be off the board. Houston will be picking either Paolo or Jabari. I’m excited.
