So you hate all our young guys.

And you want another young guy.

Ok.

I don't hate our young guys. I don't think they're franchise players or let alone superstars.

Don't think they are tanking, they are just not very good right now. The injuries messed up their chemistry and they haven't beaten anybody of significance lately.

Thing is - with Byron not our coach anymore - I just don't see the team getting worse throughout the year and I see teams fully tanking hard in second half of year.

I think our best bet would be we finish 5th to last and we jump 2 spots into the third pick.

The only problem is of the bottom feeders in the west we have lost to all of them.

haha Blazers sucking hard even with Lillard+McCollum.

It's just a matter of which team outsucks each other.

I got my money on our team.

They won't win many games with the crappy defense they play. Losing to a (bleep) Mavs team at home was the sign things were going to get bad.

This team has already shown they aren't better than those ahead in the tank standings. Shouldn't be a problem.

This team is trash and should be tanking. I like our chances of keeping the pick if Lou is traded but I'm sure the FO will be asleep at the deadline

Mitch doesn't wake up until draft night.

Trade the top 3 pick, and DLo for John Wall. I hope Wall becomes disgruntled and forces is way out of DC.

And 2.5 games away from being the tank champion on the other side.

I'm more in the camp of F' the Sixers and F' the Magic. Don't want them getting the Lakers' first rounders at any cost.

Unlike last year, they have a lot of competition for the worst record this year....there are 7 teams with a record worst than the Lakers and the two worst teams in the NBA are in the eastern conference....the Nets and the 76ers.

The NBA owes the Lakers all the luck in these drafts after the crap they pulled with Chris Paul.

I think the only way the Lakers keep their pick is if they get lucky this year....the league outside of the stacked teams in both the west and east is pretty bad this year.
