That cavs forum thread is highly entertaining. There's new posts panicking on an hourly basis


"First it was as long as this is a top 3 pick it will be good.

Then it was as long as this pick was a top 5 things are gravy.

Then 5-7 would be good

Now I see people people will be happy in the 7-10 range.

Seems like people are going to talk themselves into wherever this pick lands. This is not a very good trend. By the end of the month I expect to see as long as it's in the 10-13 range.

This was obviously the best deal available and I get why they would think this would be a high pick but as of right now we're getting screwed."

Nice.

For me, if the pick lands outside the top 5 I will be happy. I feel pretty confident at least 4 teams will finish below the Nets and I wouldn't be surprised to see the pick wind up 9th if things all break the right way.

Of course, this being the Cavs, the Nets will have the 9th worst record and get the #1 pick anyway.

"OH GOD ANYTHING BUT THAT. I already can't stand Danny Ainge. A decade of Celtics dominance in the East would be the worst possible scenario for LeBron's twilight.
Would certainly add more salt in the wound.

Couldn't pry away Tatum or Brown and then they traded us the lesser pick.

Thats why I root for the Lakers this year:chuckle:

Bagley or Ayton + Tatum, Brown and Kyrie? Scary for the years to come.

Lets hope the Nets start to fall off though"

The best part is they are dreaming they "can" trade the pick and LBJ will stay to compete 2~3years
Gilbert will NOT trade that pick unless Lebron claim to stay and he will NOT, so no trade and  Lebron will leave, the beauty of strategy by Danny

Most of the rumored guys probably won't even be available LOL.

Like if OKC figures it out in the coming months, no chance of Adams/George. Pelicans aren't trading Cousins. DeAndre Jordan may be an option but he's not threading the needle at all lol (esp. at expense of Tristan and Nets Pick). Already missed out on Bledsoe (who would have really helped them IMO).

They do know that the Lakers pick will convey as the Sacramento pick next season, right?  ::)

Now they're bickering. Some are furious

"Every time they win, you have a long explanation as to why it happened because it allows you to hold on to your original premise that they are one of the worst teams in the nba. Bottom line is they are playing without two major pieces and still competive right now.

We all thought they were going to be horrible. We were wrong, they are just below average. Some of us have just come to terms with what is actually happening, not what we want to happen"


"You guys need to stop coming up with excuses on why the Nets win. Someone is playing, someone is not, someone is having a career year. It's time to admit the Nets aren't as bad as we needed them to be and if Isiah doesn't come back close to the player he was last year then we got ****ed in the Kyrie trade. They have a good coach and they play hard, two things that the teams worse than them don't have in some cases. Keep the pick and expect it to be in the 10-15 range, don't raise your expectations."

Nets are two games out of the playoffs right now. They are definitely playing significantly better than Orlando right now. I forget who was saying they would win 35 games

I do agree with the posters there about how ridiculous some people are talking about how lucky the Nets have been every game. The Nets are in every game and their point differential shows they are right about where they should be. It would be amazing if they actually made a small trade to compete for the 8th spot. Interestingly I don't think Okafor got off the bench for them last night.

Thereís one guy who keeps claiming other teams are injured when the nets play them and thatís why they win. Nice job ignoring the season ending Lin injury, the bad Russell injury, and the many other nets injuries They had
