Pathetic showing by the Lakers the last 2 games. They can't seem to do anything right.

lol I would hate, but Shaq got me into the league, so I repped Orlando until 96 (still rooted for him a little in Miami when we were down after the trade, loved the Big Diesel).

Top 3:

Wiggins
Exum
Embiid (would be 1 but has the back issue)

If we stay put, Exum if he falls (doubt it), or Randle/Smart (whichever is available).

If we get jumped by another team moving to the top 3, no clue. Just trade the pick.

I agree with most of this, you got Exum that high? I prefer Randle to Smart myself, really don't like his play for some reason.

Truth be told, I don't watch much college ball (didn't even know my school made the tourney until I filled out my bracket), so I'm basing a lot of this on the ceiling/floor comparisons, and scouting mixes. Probably very, very dangerous, since they're saying Embiid=Hakeem, Exum=Jordan, Wiggins=Pippen/TMac hybrid. Smart got some Wade comparisons, so the same thing with him.

I do think Randle (along with Parker, who BTW could **** us if he doesn't declare since both Randle/Smart will be off the board before we pick if he stays) is more NBA ready, so he could be useful if we want to try and go on a run these last two years of Kobe. Something like:

Blake
Kobe
Deng
Randle
Gasol (resign for cheap, or Jordan Hill)

wouldn't contend, but it'd be a solid team to watch. With Smart instead (though he's more of a project I understand?), maybe Bosh (if he opts out) instead of Deng, and play Kobe at the 3 since he won't be as mobile.

Better hope the ping pong balls bounce your way.

If I understand correctly, you guys can still end up with the 1-3 pick or 6-9 pick?
