We should just go get that Charlotte lottery pick. Didn't some guru suggest Jordan trade it?

I know, the Kid N Play look is horrendous. I want to pin these guys down and shave their heads.

Then you hope we get lucky the next time, either way we need to start building young assets. Remember even the KG era started with high picks(tanking) and smart drafting.

I don't think the C's can realistically expect to lose enough games to be in the running for a top draft pick this season. They already have 20 wins. They are likely to win at least 10 more even if they blow up the roster. So looking at a 30 win season and a pick that is likely in the second half of the lottery in the #8 to #12 range.

I actually like the high top fade and totally prefer it to the cornrow era.

It'd have to be a crazy lucky draw, similar to what the Bulls got.

More likely we end up with somebody like this:



Project.  Not a savior.

Still, I'd rather get an asset in the late lottery than a first round pummeling, but it is what it is.

Well, if we end up with someone other than Noel, then many luck is on our side. 

He is not a terrible prospect, but as a top 3 pick?  No thanks.  He looks much closer to Tyrus Thomas than to Anthony Davis or KG.

Is there much difference this year between the #11 pick and the #16?

Pho, I'm with you....too bad the Cs brass want sellouts the rest of the year and two playoff games at home.

Who knows, we get a decent Big (yah, I'm dreamin') we make a run...never know...odds against us, tho.
