Anybody that thinks we have a chance in hell in getting that pick this year is delusional. 18 games in and Lakers would be 8th seed now. OKC in lottery! haha...Is Carmelo cursed? Here is hoping Sac sucks next year.
Carmelo is the curse.

Whatever happens with the Laker pick happens. If not this year, I would expect the SAC pick to be a lotto pick.

I'm a little panicked about the luxury tax anyway. Being able to push it off another year may be really helpful, especially since it seems we have guaranteed max guys in Brown and Tatum.

And with the way Smart is playing, I almost can't imagine he won't be playing for the QO (or sucking it up and signing a bargain deal for just over the QO for multiple years).

We'll see how the schedule works out for the Lakers, but they are playing relatively well. It's just a bummer since we have been talking about these 5 prospects seemingly forever. Maybe if Porter really does drop, Danny can trade the Sac pick for him and pay even less money like he did with Tatum.

When they were 5-5 I said the Lakers would go 4-6 over their next 10 (they’ve gone 3-5 so far), before going on a lengthy period where they win 1-2 games over a month.  I think they’ll be no better than 13-28 at the 41-game mark.  Hopefully I can find this post in 7 weeks to see how I did.

We aren't expecting them to be the worst team in the league... In fact that would be bad for us. There are clearly some very bad teams this year but LAL is defintely in that bottom 6-7 teams.

The drama is building, the schedule is turning, let's revisit next month before we get downhearted.
Being the worst team in the league gives us a 75% chance of getting a pick that would be no worse that #4.  How is that bad for us?

Can always trade the pick Fultz/Tatum style for extra picks!  :)

The Lakers are 8-10 right now. Last year they started the season 9-9 and wound up with the 3rd worst record in the league. That's no guarantee that this year's Lakers will falter the same way but it's certainly not delusional to think it could happen again. Especially when the Clippers, Jazz, Grizzlies, and Thunder are all very probably to pass the Lakers at some point.

Sucks that our winning streak ended.

BUT...

LAKERS LOSE TO THE KINGS TONIGHT IN BLOWOUT!  ;D

The Lakers are also about to enter a pretty ROUGH stretch of games from now until early January. Hope they lose as many as possible while other teams "catch up" to their win total lol.

Their next game vs Clippers on Monday night.

You are right, I was looking at only the negative side of 25% shot at #1.

decent day for pick. mavs about to beat thunder, hawks lost but kings beating clips so far, jazz close with bucks and pels close with warriors

if jazz can pull away with the win theyll move above the lakers

we need orlando, memphis, hornet, and clippers to eventually get a groove and start winning some games. orlando is in a 8 game losing streak and have pushed the lakers up to 11th worst.
