Bulls and Knicks are the teams we were guaranteed to win on the schedule.. I still think the tankathon is in good shape for us.



And just one more 'surprise win" and we are at 33 wins... probably 11th/12th in the draft....

Pelicans lose, and mav's down 4 with 5 to play in 4th vrs Spurs...


Let’s be realistic, there was no way we were gonna lose with LaVine out, we can still end up losing boat load of games.

Just cross your fingers and hope the basketball gods help us on lottery night.

Lakers are under a microscope for every move they make, if they shut down LeBron.. everyone will call for the Lakers to get fined for purposely tanking. like I said.. it would have been very hard to lose against the Bulls without LaVine, just gotta hope we stink it up against the better opponents.

I heard somewhere that he is gonna catch it once he's done with his 4 year contract with us.

He only has to average above 18 points...

I think 8th-9th is the most likely outcome. I thought 2-3 more wins, and we've just bagged one of those.

That's why you say he's had a flare-up from his groin injury. No one can dispute that since he's just coming off injury. They need to shut him down.

Guys, whatever pick we get, it’s going to be traded. Don’t hope too hard for an actual player. After Zion everyone else is pretty much the same so 2-10 doesn’t make much difference.

well in a potential trade a higher draft pick will up the value of whatever trade package its included in

Potential wins left for our competitors:

Orlando: Atl x 2, NO, Grizz, NY, Charlotte, Mia. I see them staying ahead of us.

Lakers: NY, Wash, NO, Charlotte, Sac. I think we lose to Wash and Sac.

Wiz: Charlotte, Grizz, Chicago x 2, Suns, NY, Mia. I think they overtake us.

Charlotte: Wash, Minn, LA, NO, Cavs, Orl, Mia. They will pass us.

Pelicans: Suns x 2, Dallas, Orl, Atl, Sac x 2, LA, Charlotte. Many winnable games but they are tanking hard. I think we could be worse than them depending on how hard LBJ plays.

Memphis with 6 winnable games at least, not sure if we catch them.

Dallas with 9 winnable games but I don't think we catch them.

Best we can hope for is the 7th spot, most likely the 8th spot.
