LOL, the Lakers won yet again and are locked in at #3 now. 

Assuming Brooklyn loses tonight with half their roster sitting, they'll finish between 4-7 games short of catching Phoenix + LA.  This is why a lot of people weren't too worried even as they started heating up late.  It was just too much to get out of the hole they dug over the first 75% of the year.

And I'm rooting for them to finish at #3. If they still owe their pick to PHL next year, it will be unprotected, so I won't have to worry about them tanking.

Yes, I really hope they get Ball, because they really deserve each other.
1 less team who will tank next year. A win-win for the Celtics.

The flip side of that is that if they send the 1st to Philly this year, they'll also have to send their 2019 1st to Orlando to fulfill the Dwight Howard trade. Otherwise it turns into 2 2nds.  So there's tradeoffs either way. 

I honestly wouldn't mind them sucking for a 5th straight season next year, high pick or not.

We should be onto the 2017-2018 Nets Watch Thread..........
with that said, we all (well, almost all) expect the Nets to suck again. At least suck enough to land a top 10 pick. I am looking forward to following all the top prospects next year and there are a lot of them. I am particularly high on this list of top 7 but would love to land one of the top 4.

Nets are chasing Euro guards for the future.

Brooklyn’s interest in Teodosic is well-known. The 30-year-old point guard was voted the best player outside the NBA by league general managers earlier this year, leading Serbia to a silver medal in Rio and CSKA Moscow — Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov’s old team — to a Euroleague title. Teodosic’s passing has brought comparisons to former Nets great Jason Kidd.

Eh, if they suck in perpetuity the rivalry fades to nothing. Look at the Sixers, most fans under 35 don't even consider them rivals unless they're students of history.

I prefer the arrangement we had in the 60s where the Lakers are really good but we just keep crushing their hopes over and over and over again.

As a Euro fan, and I'm sure our Greek buddy can confirm that, it's not good news. You can get very good, savvy players in Europe with no huge salary and helping you win games. Players such as Teodosic, Llull (I know Houston has his rights, but maybe a minor trade could arrange it) and some more can make the Nets competitive. Hopefully they concentrate their efforts on Crabbe, Tyler Johnson and such.

They definitely have one because they would desire to minimize the damage done, but apparently this is the worst case scenario for them 😂

If they trade Lopez , that is the final tank for next season .   If I was Lopez , I would demand a trade.  Get me to a playoff team .  Nets are least 3-5 years from having much . No use in Lopez hanging around there .

Heck , Lopez would be better off on Knicks or Lakers .
