If we end up with Doncic and Porter, that'd be pretty cool. The odds of that happening are well under 1%.

They'll be traded for three picks in 2019.

Incredibly unlikely that we even get two top 5 picks, let alone the top 2. Knowing our luck, Brooklyn will end up with pick #5, and LAL will get #6 so instead we get Sacramento's pick next year. Which turns out to be #8

I view it as 2 dice rolls for the top pick. I think Danny really likes porter jr, and is comfortable leaving with any of the top 4 elite prospects as concession prizes if it doesn't work out (ayton, doncic, bamba)

how are the odds of that happening under 1%? The nets were the worst team this year. Lakers 3rd worst team. The chances of getting 1 as of right now is significantly higher than 1%. Its higher than 25%

It's funny how the draft next year or the year after is always so much stronger than this year's draft.

The draft next year is significantly inferior to the draft this year. I'll say that right now. The likely #1 pick (Luka Doncic) might be the best prospect out of the two drafts, but we've done absolutely nothing to increase our chances of getting him.

Well we don't get the LA pick if it's #1, so there's that. Plus Brooklyn and/or LA may improve, we never know.

What we do know is that after years of trying, the one time we get the #1 we throw it away.

It mathematically cannot possibly be higher than 25%.

I think that's a bit unfair.

No one really hyped '13, '14 was supposed to be awesome, '15 was supposed to have great big men but be much worse than '15, '16 was the Ben Simmons draft, and '17 was supposed to be really deep at the top. '18 is supposed to suck but be great at the top.

Most of those ended up correct.

the Lakers won't be worst team. Nets and suns were way worse

the point isn't its better, but weluxury the luxury to roll dice twice now on a draft that has better prospects that aren't pure guards (we have 6)
