i've noticed and i love the way this team is playing. though i'd love for them to get a top 2 pick, i'd rather see them win, build confidence and show that this current team is very competitive.

Yeah.. i'm completely torn. I want a top 3 pick but losing sucks. But I think I want a top 3 pick more. We don't have the horses to make a serious run at the title...

I've never been so upset with a 7 game win streak in my life.

And then what?
and then they still add 3 first round picks and have a good amount of cap space following next season. i think this current team has shown that it doesn't in fact need a superstar to be a good team. i think they are showing that they are a good team, not elite, but still good.

of course i want them to have a top pick, but not at the expense of ruining the players' confidence. this team, going into next year, is going to think they can compete with any other team, especially with adding three decent guys from the draft. the experience of winning and great team chemistry is priceless.

i don't think people would be as upset if this were say last year or before when there weren't such clear cut great guys,

but oden and durant seem to be total real-deal huge potential guys

that being said

the sixers wouldn't be in the driver's seat for those chances anyway, just would have better odds

-

one other part is how long has it been since this town had a genuine inside presence for scoring and rebounding

I'm so sad that we threw away our chances for ODEN. Ugh.

I agree.

The draft is a crap shoot anyway. You have no idea what you are getting. Sure picks flop all the time.
