    Yeah, due to the pick being guaranteed to convey me saying "sweating it out" was pretty dramatic. I'd like to be sure on lotto day that we get a lotto pick out of the Warriors but I'm obviously not too worried about if it conveys in this draft or next draft.

    Given that next years draft is better than this year and everyone on the warriors will be another year older, it would not the worst thing in the world to have a top 1 protected pick next year for a team led by a 36 year old and 2 washed supporting cast members.

    Disagree, I'd prefer this pick is #1: still a coin flip we get that 5th pick.

    If it's #9 it still has a chance GS keeps it but is much less valuable if we get it.

    Although the difference in it being ranked from #1-#9 is very small with the offsetting lesser chance we get it. So yes much less incentive to be a top pick than our own pick. So I'll be happy anywhere in the top 10.

    But more I'm just pointing out there is no reason to root for them to win anything.

    Plus the pain we would inflict on those ridiculous Warriors fans by getting their top5-7 pick would be more delicious than taking their 10th pick.

    Although taking their pick anywhere in the lottery will be super fun!!!

    Would we prefer they just finish 11th in the conference, or 10th? Might be most fun for them to lose the playin at 10 and then lose the pick in the lottery to us.

    I believe the Warriors traded the pick to Memphis, who traded it to Boston (with Washington included in that trade dump) back a few seasons ago. And now it got traded to Portland from Boston, for Jrue.

    Prot. 1-4

    trade 1: GS/MEM Iggy salary dump

    trade 2: MEM/WAS/BOS KP/Smart

    trade 3: POR/BOS Jrue trade

    Agreed, but we do not want them making the playoffs either.

    If GS ends up top-4, I can't imagine they will be better next year. We could get a pick in a better draft that is only top-1 protected?

    Suns can help the Blazers 2nd pick. The game is on TNT tonight. Go get 'em Nurkic !! I wanna see 14 off the bench for Little.

    It's important GSW stays around .500. Don't get too greedy... The NBA could shuffle the draft cards if the Warriors end up in the 7th or 8th slot. Oh... sorry Portland, the Warriors get to keep their top 4 rookie this summer.

    No , we do not want the Warriors to be around .500.

    We want them to stink for the next 3 seasons.

    Draymond just took a weird swing with his right arm at Nurkic's head/neck, as if his arm were paralyzed/limp and swinging from his shoulder.

    I suppose the idea was that he could say "I just turned my body and my arm uncontrollably flew into Nurkic."

    Anyway, Flagrant 2, ejected.

    Eubanks scored a basket, then got a steal. Suns need more of that.

    Draymond got his big contract extension. He can easily pay all the fines occurred for being a jackass.
