    What if Tim Duncan came to Boston? Would we have had #17 earlier or would we never have the team we have now?

      Yes, we’d have #17, 18, 19, 20 and maybe more. Whatever, I love the team we got now so it all, sort of, worked out in the end.

    For the record, the Draft stinks when it doesn’t come up for your team, but I think it’s kinda cool. It makes the NBA Draft unique and adds some random excitement to the mix. Hate that we didn’t get Duncan or the #1/2 pick a couple years ago but at least teams don’t get a great pick for tanking down the stretch.

    Still, you make a great point Josh that the lottery system raises doubts about the integrity of the process. To that end, they should scrap it because there’d be a lot less people claiming conspiracy against the NBA.

    too many teams would flop for that #1 pick in basketball. it’s not like baseball where your #1 pick won’t make difference usually for years down the road, if it all.. or football, when your number one pick is one of 50 guys on a team.. 10 guys in hoop.. 5 starters, the turnaround can come quick if you get the right guy #1.. I just think too many teams would fold and start flopping in order to get that #1.

    right, exactly my point Josh.. set up by the owners,gm’s, etc.. to lose. The team overall, not the players. You can throw games and make it look on the up and up.. It happens all the time with the NBA and teams hoping to get that #1.. Ask Gaston and ML Carr if they were trying to win those games the year they were shooting for Duncan and the #1. It’s an organizational “team effort” to lose.

    This draft resolution represents a unique opportunity for a fresh start for human rights.
