    Nah James is genuinely good at this point. He has a massive advantage having LeBron as his father, and his coaching has been exceptional… James lacks the size of his dad, but at this point he really could end up at #10 because of his game.

    You may be right, we’ll know a lot more seeing him in college next year.

    Didn't know Jett was the son of legendary Juwon Shades.

    Another son.

    Today.... it finally happened. The Rockets got the #1 pick on the 1ST spin Tankathon spin. Oh, what a day of days.

    Does it also seem as if the Tankathon odds are..... off? It can't be possible for the worse team to continually not get the #1 pick? It seems like the second and third worst teams get the #1 pick more with the same odds...

    Even the worst team should continually not get the #1 pick. The odds are low, worse than the 1/6 chance of a rolling a die. We're more than three times likely to get the #5 pick than the #1 pick.

    #2 or #3 winning more often may just be your perception. If you played 100 times and charted the results it should be extremely close.

    That definitely may be true. 14% being what it is out of 100 spins, they would get the #1 pick 14 times. Makes sense it's rare. It just "seems" like the 2-5 get the #1 pick. Probably all in my head.

    Unless it is rigged… there will be the % chance for each time given and those are the chances for what you see (which is a small sample size). The only time the % would be inline is if you did it say 100,000 times. Then the bottom records should be very close to what the stated 14%.

    Just hope for the Nets to lose enough to fall into the play-in. Then get bounced and end up in the lotto. Increase our odds by a tiny % (if they get #1 we switch picks)

    Today, the tankathon gods gave me 3, 5, 1. Your sample is more of the usual for me.

    Charlotte’s about to go all in on the tank after today’s news about LaMelo.

    What is the lowest pick that the Rockets can end up with if we have the worst record?

    #5

    And the odds of that happening are too high for comfort.
