The fact 13 of you guys voted "no" like there is some tinfoil conspiracy in the NBA where they could manipulate the lottery or just take draft picks from us, makes me question what is in the water you drunk while growing up...

Tinfoil conspiracy seems to be the American way right now.  Discussion of the NBA is no different.

Yeah it might, but who knows?  Just for fun, compare/contrast that starting five with:
Markelle Fultz
Dario Saric
Ben Simmons
Jahlil Okafor
Joel Embiid

It's a rhetorical question to make the point that the draft is a crap-shoot.

Really doubt Marcus Smart can run the point on a championship team, unless he does indeed morph into a Chauncey Billups type player.
