    Mission accomplished!! o_O
    http://www.tankathon.com/

    Since February 1st we are 2-9 and have successfully taken control of our top 4 protected pick! I just want to say “kudos” to our unofficial alpha dog for putting all those bricks in the “Wall” ! (pun intended)...

    I have to say that the accomplishment has truly been a team effort, something that is truly monumental, and something that we should all be proud of!! All that remains is to lose every single game for the remainder of the season and all our wishes will come true!! ;)



    Go Rockets!!!

    Ran the simulation 10 times.

    7 were in the top 4. 2 were #1 overall. The three that forced conveying were 7, 8 and 12.

    I"M TAKING THIS CHANCE.

    Don't underestimate the Miami factor. If Miami's small % lottery works out, the Rockets basically keep their own (or get okc) pick. Actually really stupid of the Thunder to have not won last night.

    The Rockets 48% chance plus the Heats chance = Processae mathematica

    Tanks for the memories Oladipo, Nwaba, Cousins, Sterling Brown, Exum, Tucker (especially) as you move
    on to hopefully greener pastures.

    Cue the music...

    Johnny Nash was a nice touch.
    Now I hafta Google Lou Rawls ("You'll never find......another love like mine") so I can go from hearing a perfect African-American tenor to a perfect African-American baritone.

    forgot to mention Ben McLemore as well in post #7 (above)

    Sure they all end up on playoff bound teams.

    Clutchfans will be cheering for them.

    Will be nice to say, “We trained them to do that,” during a playoff game.

    it's stupid, they all act like tanking always works. truth it, it almost never does.

    they forget before harden rox were decent, used trades to get elite. before tmac & yao, again they were decent. they used trades and got lucky with yao lottery because stevie franchise is the greatest draft rep ever.

    i think this team should strive to compete like the Lowery/Martin teams. Stay competitive and also have valuable assets. Lowery and Martin themselves were very "valuable" because they stayed competitive. That's the model imo.
