I don't want to jinx it but Joe D looks to be 2/2 for his recent lottery picks (Daye was taken 15th). If we continue our ways we should get a top 5 next year.
Exactly, it's the OKC formula. Even if you look at a team like Sacramento or Utah they have some nice young pieces too. This draft is going to change a lot for some teams. There's a ton of talent. I think next year we could be decent (with a high lottery pick) and in two years time we can be good again.
