Draft position...
There is no way we will have a worse record than Orlando and Charlotte - but after those 2 teams, there are 7 teams either on 22 or 23 wins currently. So there is not going to be much of a difference in the records from the team drafting 3 compared to the team drafting 10...

I am not saying we should tank, but probably wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to not be playing our best basketball in the final month of the season :banana:

Re: Draft position...
I've mentioned similiar things before. People don't like to hear it, but it makes sense. I've never said purposely lose games. I don't believe in that. I do believe in getting our younger guys some playing time so we can see what we have for the future. That will mean a few more losses right now, but it will help us develop so we aren't losing in the long run.

With Drummond and now Knight out, we've been losing quite nicely. Right now we're in 5th (to last) place. 3 to 6 would be awesome, we can do this!

Re: Draft position...
It seems like the past few years the Pistons have put together a decent run at the end of the season to drop out of potentially getting a top 3 pick. The worst part with this draft is there just isn't that elite level talent at the top of it. We still need a good pick though.
