The Hornets were not drafting Lillard over Anthony Davis.
And Kings have Tyreke, so it makes no sense for them either.
Everyone that drafted before Portland got a very good player.
Cleveland has Kyrie, Wiz have Wall, Charlotte has Kemba.
No one in front needed a pg, which benefitted the Blazers immensely.
I kinda wish that was the case for us back when Minny did the unthinkable, but we'd probably would have had Flynn....bleh.
