Re: Who, if anybody, are you rooting for to win the tank?
good thread. as an impartial fan i'll say sacramento and new orleans from the west and from the east toronto , boston and washington.
was and new orleans tried to be competitive this year, have nice young pieces and it would be even more fun for them to get a top pick and sacramento, boston and toronto because they need this, and their fans are great
i would love something like:
1. Toronto - Andrew Wiggins - Nothing to say here, we all know this kid and where he's from. Would be nice for some hype for canada's basketball, maybe others would come there and create a contender in the next 4-5 years
2. Washington - Jabari Parker - At this moment his is a little better than wiggins, i like what the wizards are doing, would be fun wall/parker
3. Boston - Marcus Smart - Pair him with rondo and that would be one of the best defensive front courts in the league. also gives jeff green another 1-2 years to develop in the frontcourt. You also could trade bradley for something nice.
4. New Orleans - Joel Embiid - A seven footer with an exceptionally high ceiling who reportedly only started playing basketball in 2011 with fantastic potential. Just imagine him at C and David at PF
5. Sacramento - Julius Randle - 6'9 pf with a nba comparasion of larry johnson/chris webber. Rudy Gay/Derrick Williams/Julius Randle/Demarcus Cousins just sick
