just keep fucking losing Warriors
but win enough to stay outta top-4
if season ended tonight, Warrior pick would either be 13th or 14th depending on a coin flip with Toronto
With the 6th best odds, they’d have ~35% at a top 4 pick, 30.7% at #7, 21.7% at #8. That’s probably the most favorable spot for us with the GSW pick, 65% chance of conveying, over 50% chance of it landing at #7-8.
Hard to see them losing that much though. Around #10 is perfectly fine with me.
I'd prefer they have the worst record in the NBA - it would be a coin flip we get the #5 pick.
Highly doubt their actually that bad. I'm just pointing out it's fine to root for them to lose every game.
I think I may get more enjoyment out of the Warriors losing than anything the Blazers are doing, as sick and twisted as that is.
Yes, you’re going to hell for sure lol.
I don’t see gsw losing that much. It was more tongue-in-cheek, as it would be the Blazers’ luck.
He is, but not because of that post.
Geezee..... brutal responses....
Don't sugar coat it or anything
I thought I actually did, but to each their own.
Another Warriors heartbreaker, :’))
NO/LAC/HOU have all built a little 1.5 game lead on GS. They’re also within 2 games of four eastern conference teams between 7-10.
@PHX, @LAC, BRK their next three games. Three teams hoping to make the playoffs, so nothing easy. Then they play us, and hopefully have Grant and DA back for that game. A bad stretch during these four games could slip them all the way to 7-8 I think.
Updating this thread is fun, lol.
We're a Curry sprained hamstring away from getting the 5th pick.
It would be just our luck that GS actually wins the lottery or goes top 3 if that happened.
Or 12 Draymond technicals away, lols.
We want this pick right aroudn 8-10 because any higher and we'll be sweating it out on lotto day. Yeah we want this pick in the top 14 but we don't want the odds too high so it moves up and we have to wait for next season to use it. Luckily the protections on this pick benefit us and they have a weaker protection next draft and no protection the draft after that.
Me too, I would be sweating bullets. I’d personally want a pick at #10, that would be the sweet spot for me.
Right now, I’m looking at Aaron Bradshaw as a big man I would love to have on the roster next year. He was a projected top 5 pick before the injuries, and now with being confined in Kentucky’s system, the amount of NBA ready bigs in the 1st round, and the reputation of this class lacking star power, he could be available at #25 in the earliest. I’d love to trade down for Bradshaw and secure a future 1st. A high lotto forward to add to Camara, Walker, Murray + a star-potential big to pair with DA would be an awesome outcome for the draft.
There is nothing to be sweating about. The pick eventually becomes completely unprotected in 2026. It doesn't turn into 2nd round picks like in some trades.
"Golden State's 1st round pick to Portland protected for selections 1-4 in 2024 and 1 in 2025 and unprotected in 2026."
If the Warriors are bad this season and end up 6th-10th worst record-wise and somehow get pick 1-4, they could be even worse next season.
I am rooting for Golden State to be as bad as possible.
You’re ultimately correct, that there’s nothing to sweat about, as it pertains to getting a pick. But it’s better to get a certain lotto pick than for the team to keep their pick and turn it around and make the playoffs next season. At that point, being top 1 unprotected doesn’t matter because the pick will be beyond #15. I’d rather have a guaranteed pick between #10-14.
so far they have avoided serious injury, given their key players ages a significant injury could easily happen
