Tonight we will see the NBA Draft Lottery be resolved in a way that’s going to help big market teams (Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers), or actually help smaller market ones (Phoenix Suns, Orlando Magic, Minnesota Timberwolves). I think we all know what’s at stake here - specifically LAL losing their pick. here’s the break down, via Tankathon.com :
And, the biggie, if the Lakers drop out of the Top 3 then that pick goes to the Philadelphia 76ers. That’s what we’re going for.
Outside of the lotto we have our Utah Jazz currently scheduled to pick at #24, #30, #42, and #55. Personally? I think the Jazz are going to be moving some of these if not all of them.
So, in closing, eff the Lakers.
