    I’m confused. I thought the 3 worst records have the highest chance at the #1 pick?

    Also, there's no difference in the odds for the #2 pick either with the 3 worst teams each having a 13.42% chance of getting it. Even if the Rockets finish with a better record than the Pistons and Spurs, all three teams will have the same odds of getting picks #1-4. The difference in odds only start to hit with the #5 pick. So people are really arguing over the odds of getting pick #5.

    Iko reported yesterday that if we don't get one of the top two picks, the Rockets would look to trade down anyways. If we don't land the top two picks, arguing over picks 5-7 is a pointless debate. It really doesn't matter whether we get picks 5, 6, or 7 because the draft becomes a crap shoot after Wemby and Scoot are off the board. #7 is still a good pick where a special player can be found. Steph Curry was picked at #7.

    I'll take meaningful progress from the players we have on the roster over the odds of getting pick #5 in the upcoming draft any day of the week.

    I'm happy to see this team start to play together as a team and figure out how to do what's necessary to win games - even better when those wins are against teams that are desperately trying to fight for playoff seeding.

    Ok good I was worried for nothing. As long as they don’t pass up the hornets they should be fine

    Wemby is not giving up on the Rockets, he has to be intrigued to play with some young talent in a market where he could get the Yao/Dream fanbase, plus learn how to operate with some VIP low block training from the legend Dream himself

    Green/Jabari seem to have that ying/yang charisma where players may want to team up with them

    The Rockets don't need Wembanyama. They got Jabari as their franchise player already. All they need is hire a good coach who can bring out the best of Jabari and the rest of the team.
