Indiana will contend you guys for that. I'm rooting for MSU cause of my animosity towards Sampson, but with DJ White, Armon Bassett coming back and Eric Gordon or IDKWTI coming in, it's going to be tough.

Illinois will be there too. Don't doubt us.


EDIT: Oh yeah, Cook is an idiot.

Can't believe you said his name. You just jinxed your season. lol

Am I the only one who doesn't get worried when he hears DJ White is coming back?

OSU will be good still, so we can't forget them. Butler, Lighty, Koufos and their other recruits will keep them competitive.

How does that work? If a team behind them wins the lottery they move down a spot. But if a team ahead of them wins the lottery, that team was already ahead of them so nothing changes.

DJ has always impressed me with his tenacity, so I give him respect. Guy likes the big moments and the big games, have to be worried about players like that. OSU will be good, I didn't exclude them, I just wanted to say MSU and IU are gonna be the two best teams in the B10

Because the chances of a team from 12 on down has 0 shot at winning the lottery realistically. Its never happened. Since the new lottery system was implemented the lowest a team has won the lottery was having the 7th worst record (NJ when they drafted Kmart). From 8 on down the change in order was small. I checked the last 3 seasons and teams pretty much stayed the same most of the time...few isolated cases where a team went up 1 and another down 1 but nothing significant like the 13th pick leaps to 8 or 9.

Not a fan of DJ White. Solid college player but at the next level? But with Eric Gordon could be a nice 1-2 combo if he doesnt declare. I think Eric is gonna own.

I'm not a fan of him in college either. He's a worse rebounder than Bargnani is playing against actual professionals.

Something about black Indiana players especially big men that just makes me I dunno. They're never great. You gotta go back to Allan Henderson and to me he wasnt great. Will they ever land a black big men with a swagger? Friggin Illinois James Augstine had more of a swagger than any Indiana bigman. That says a lot. Maybe its the tight shorts at Indiana?

That doesn't explain how it's possible for Philly to move up one spot. The way I see it, they could win a top 3 pick, they could stay the same, or they could move down if Pacers/Hornets/Clippers win the lottery. Unless I'm missing something, moving up 1 isn't one of the options.

Chances are just very slim I believe.

Plus if one low team makes a big jump, no one else really can cause as SaKF said on page 1, the higher teams are guaranteed picks from a certain range. So if say Memphis doesn't get picks 1-3, they're guaranteed the 4th pick...so a lower team can't get that.

You're right....from 8 on down it doesnt change at all. I made an error when i went back the last 3yrs to check from 8-14 and thier records.

Good catch.
