The Official NBA '08 Draft Lottery Thread
 
With all the Playoff talk, ISH could use some Lottery discussion aswell. Miami is the projected team to get the No.1 pick, with Seattle, Minnesota, and Memphis following. So to all of the fans from losing squads, enter and discuss your team needs for next season, and if this draft/draft position could help you.

Here's another fact, your team can do no worse than three spots less of how your team finished in the regular season's standings, meaning New York, who finished 5 worst can't get worse than 8th.

So here, just make predictions, your teams best case scenario, and all discussion for this Tuesday's draft. (On a side note, here's to us getting No.1, New Yorkers! :cheers: )

Here's all fourteen of the teams chances of winning the Lottery:



(Can a Mod please Sticky this thread? Thanks)

Lets hope the Warriors get the #1 pick!

Blazers are gonna get the #1 pick again this year, and draft Derick Rose. Then we are gonna rule the NBA for the next 10-20 years.

No, but in all honesty i want Portland to just trade the #13(if that is indeed where we end up)

I want Seattle to get the #1 and NY to get the #2 picks.

Good luck everybody!

I hope the Nets get at least the 2nd and get Micheal Beasly I would be so happy :D
But if they dont w/ the 10th pick Nets should get JaVale McGee

Im dreaming of Rose being a TWolf but I would settle with Beasley as well. Anyone else and Id trade down for someone like Eric Gordon.

You really think Love will fall that low? I don't see him going any lower than 6, but most Mock Drafts on the net have him pretty low....I find that interesting.

Cavs aren't in the lottery so my main hope for this year is that Miami doesn't get a top 2 pick, beyond that I'm fine with all of the possible scenarios. Would really annoy the hell out of me if they get rewarded with a player of Rose/Beasley's level after putting on the worst show I have ever seen from any proffesional ballclub, just outright horrible play, complete lack of sportsmanship and blatant tanking.

Also I would like to see Rose with the Sonics or Clippers, but that's really a minor thing.

I'd say it's around 50/50 that he'll be around at 11. I could see a team like Charlotte or Chicago taking him higher. The more recent reports I've seen on ESPN say he's already begun to drop weight, and the kid's already the most polished big man draftee since Bogut in my mind, and as a freshman. If the reports of him getting into much better shape pan out I could see him turning some heads at the pre-draft workouts and getting picked something like top 7.
