Even if we have the worst record, do you honestly believe we'll get the top pick?

Even if we have the worst record, do you honestly believe we'll get the top pick?

  1. Yes. And, I still believe in Santa Claus & the Easter Bunny.

  2. No - It's rigged. Too much talent here already.

  3. Maybe, maybe not...I don't know. But it's not rigged.

    While few things would make me happier, I just don't see the League letting it happen. This has been their modus operandi forever.

    I spin once a day (no more than that).

    Today
    Spurs #1 (up 3 spots)
    Hornets #2 (up 1 spot)
    Rockets #3 (down 2 spots)​

    14% is exactly what people think it is, getting top pick / Wemby is slim. (pun intended)

    No.

    Wembanyama is going to San Antonio, Detroit or Charlotte.
    I honestly, truly, sincerely believe Wembanyama is going to San Antonio.

    Roll a dice.

    Follow the Lottery.

    I need to play more lottery.

    I hope it's rigged and somehow the NBA has to revolutionize itself.

    The last two years we had the worst record and we never received the first pick or we would have Paolo Bancheros and Cade Cunningham….C’mon Man!

    Tilman does seem like the type of owner to slip a little something something into Silver's pockets.

    The Rockets beat the odds the past couple years, so this could be the year they don't and pick 4th or 5th. As a Rockets fan that would really suck, but as a sports fan it is totally what the organization deserves.

    yes you are probably right however, we should forget about draft position and learn to draft and develop from any position

    It's a GUARANTEE that we're getting Wemby. There's no question about it.

    you could have asked the same thing for any of the worst 3 records, they all have the same chance.
