I know, but we had to lose for the sake of the future.


We aren't guaranteed a darn thing. The chance of keeping our pick is essentially less than 50/50. So this loss means nothing but another loss.


It's better than nothing so we need to lose for the rest of the year. Even Magic is on board for team tank.


I really hope you aren't counting on anyone in the next draft to single handedly turn our franchise around...

Because that isn't happening till Russell, Randle and Ingram come into their own.

"sake of the future" is Russell, Ingram and Randle leading this team to 10+ more wins this season. That's "sake of the future" cause it means we're closer to being a winning team. That's where the sake of the future is. Not one single player in this coming draft saves our franchise before Russell, Ingram, Randle come into their own.

Winning ensures the sake of your future, losing only ensures more losing till your talent matures and comes around.

We aren't becoming a winning team cause of drafting top 3 in the 2017 draft. In fact if we are DEPENDING on our top 3 pick to carry this team to victory next year we'll lose more games than we've lost now.

The 2017 draft isn't turning us into a winning team. Russell, Ingram and Randle coming into their own and surrounded by the proper vets will, long before whomever comes in the 2017 draft becomes the difference maker they'd need to be.


You're also forgetting it's also another asset that we gain too if we keep this pick that we can use in trades. Think about it.

The point is that they will come into their own while we get a pick of another potential franchise talent.

We're gonna be a winning team next season. Have a little more faith eh?


More so or less a yearly thing.

Ingram was the next KD/Giannis, and now this season Tatum is a better prospect.

This season we hear all about Ball and Fultz, but next year

Michael Porter, DeAndre Ayton and Kevin Knox will be the saviors or "better" prospects.
