http://www.tankathon.com/pick_odds So the rockets are looking to get the #1 pick if they do. There a big chance they will pick at 5. I mean a 47.9 percent chance. The rockets need to win some games here now if you ask me. But as is, there a big chance there going to hand pick 45%(27.8% 5th , 20% 6th) to okc at 2nd as its riding out. Did they booboo to early in the season, with only 17 games left, and one of the hardest schedules in the league based on playoff standings lol.

another thread talking about the draft odds led by someone who doesn't understand it. This has been hashed out over and over and over. IDDIOT

Odds are in the balls balls man. Go take a coin and see what its like with heads vs tails. It hurts to tank go look at the odds now.

https://www.theringer.com/2020/12/17/22179125/nba-teams-can-no-longer-tank-their-way-to-the-top You cant just have the #1 with worse record. Rockets better start winning some games bra! Ya we talked about it but its getting damn near close lol

Did you think this was a novel thought? At this point everyone knows the odds man. It's 52%. There have been dozens of threads about it already. Simulations, speculation, analysis. Also, I dont know if you noticed but the team sucks balls. It's not just that they're losing on purpose, they couldn't win if they wanted to. There's nothing to gain by winning now just strap up and enjoy the show.

If we get the worst record, isn't the lowest we could be is 4. Three other teams get 1, 2, 3 based on the lotto balls and then we would get the next spot since we have the worst record? Edit: I just looked it up, the top 4 picks are up for grabs, so the worst we could be is 5.

What I didn't realize is that the odds of being top 4 doesn't change at all as long as we have one of the 3 worst records in the league.
