    I think I'll have my own little lottery drinking game

    I'll start at #11 and drink a shot of single-malt scotch for every slot Portland isn't called. If I'm still sober when Portland's number comes up I'll be pissed. If Portland lands on #1 somebody should probably call 911 for me

    So essentially we’re either gonna end up with Jerami Grant or a top 7 pick.

    I hope Cronin is more creative than that. There is the possibility to trade back. There's also the possibility to take the protections off of our pick so we can get Detroit the multiple first rounders that they said they'd need but they'd be future firsts. I don't think it has to be an either or situation.

    I think both. Even as incompetent Cronin has been thus far, I don't believe he'll go this low. God help us if he does.

    I honestly think we are getting number 2, I keep seeing that number everywhere. Someone remember this post when it happens.

    Not sure of a scenario where we draft a player for ourselves in the lottery

    Not sure of a scenario where a top-3 pick is dealt for Jeremy Grant and the practice facility isn't overrun by a torch/pitchfork-wielding mob.

    So who is your best guess, are the players that are available for the number 1 pick? (That the Blazers actually want in return.)

    Maybe a number of diehard fans here would be mad. But the average season ticket holder would've heard more of Grant than a rookie so I don't think there would be much PR issues. Especially so if Dame comes out with strong support of Grant.

    trading a top three pick for Jerami Grant should be a fireable offense. I know it’s the popular thing to shit on Cronin but he isn’t that dumb.
