    Go Trailblazers. That one's easy to pick a fav.

    Regarding the East, I don't really have a favorite. I hope for Mike's sake that Toronto wins, but I also think it's neat that the Bucks are having success.

    Looking forward to some intense hoops tonight and in the coming days.

    My heart says Portland and Toronto, but my head says Golden State and Milwaukee.

    8th and 10th picks? Trade them for whatever you can get for them. Worthless picks.

    This franchise still has no future.

    That’ll kick the AD sweepstakes back into high gear.

    New York will probably sign Durant and then trade him to New Orleans.

    I guess I misunderstood the draft lottery. I thought they made it harder for teams to move up?
    Apparently, not.

    This system sucks. It should just go in order of who the worst teams are. Teams can't better if they can't have the top picks.
    They're never gonna stop tanking. Teams are gonna do it no matter what.

    NO and Memphis move up and get the picks....it couldn't've went any worse.
    Two markets that aren't big basketball cities. And these guys will most likely bolt in 4, 5 years.

    GS decided to bring the D tonight.
    Still, thought Portland would shoot a little better than this.

    They will. It was a feeling out tonight. GS ain't losing game one at home. Period.

    Interesting that the story that really hasn't come up (perhaps because it's way too soon), is what IF PDX actually made it to the finals against Toronto. We'd be playing 50 percent of our games without a Center because Kanter doesn't have a passport that would get him across the border. Interpol would snag him so he'd only play at home. Interesting!

    He spoke out against wrongdoing of the Turkish government or something and got on their shit list. Not much that can be done really. Our congressman even wrote a request to Turkey. No response. He didn't play there regular season

    I'm guessing the Canadian government allows him to enter without a passport. Exceptions can be made.

    Yes Canadians will have common sense. If not, just throw him on a fishing boat with a few Mexicans and send him across the Lake.

    Almost called the Lottery right. Knew Cavs would get a pick between 4 and 6 and both NY and LA would be ahead of them. Just thought one of them would be number 1. That said happy NY didn't get Zion. Was getting freaking tired of hearing about them deserving him. Fuck them and STEPHEN A SMITH. That said David Griffin has nudes of Silver. He will now trade AD to either NY or LA for their pick. Even though the Cavs have benefited from the Lottery I think its a freaking joke. Yes teams tank for the pick but that has been going on for decades. The worst team should get a Lebron, KD or sometimes an Andrew Bennett. Just like the Colts got Luck. Shit happens. GSW didn't get any number 1 picks and they did all right. You still have to draft right. However a team that is 11th best shouldn't get a chance to be number 1. Anyway it is what it is.

    Last nights game went as expected. Big game is number 3 to see what Portland does on their court. Could be over in 4 or 5.

    I hate Canadians because they gave us Bieber and Samantha Bee so have to pull for the Bucks. Plus Milwaukee is kind of similar to Cleveland. Fat people loving sausage and bad beer

    Based on what I've read up here, it sounds like it won't be an issue. They've received the request and the immigration department, off the record, called Turkey's request a likely "abuse of Interpol’s red notice system". Don't think you'll get much in public on this but if the teams meet (unlikely I'd guess), Kanter will be able to play in Toronto I'm pretty sure. We detain Chinese nationals and start trade wars when you guys ask us, I'm sure we'll look the other way to let a Turkish basketball player into the country if requested.

    If Portland doesn't play MUCH better than they did last night, the only reason they will be going to Canada is for vacation.

    Yes, you misunderstood.

    We have been talking about it for weeks here though. Bottom 3 teams (NY, Phx, Cle) only had a 14% chance at #1. Chicago 12.5%, Atl 10%, ect....

    It was to de-incentivise tanking somewhat. Previously the worst team had a 25% chance at the #1 pick. Yes, tanking will never go away, but this sure mixes it up.

    It also got big tv ratings and huge buzz afterwards. Hell...... more of the big talk shows are talking about the draft lottery then the actual game last night.

    Another success for the NBA. They are trying to make the league a 365 day league (like the NFL), not just popular during the season.

    You can see which team had what odds for the #1 pick and getting into the Top 5 here: http://www.tankathon.com/
