The only thing guaranteed is effort and these Raptors lately are playing TREMENDOUS team ball and effort. Ill gladly take 9th place and give away our pick but at least Ill know I had a team that was in it to the end and respectable to watch.
I agree with you as well. Personally, i don't care about building a championship contender because that requires such a fluke and won't happen within the next 3-4 years. Life is too short to root for wins 5 years down the line. I just want entertaining, winning, basketball.
But this question was more for the guys that keep saying they want to give the worst lottery pick possible, like it makes a difference to us where OKC picks...
