    I think there's a lot more to it. If Cronin has a way to add more talent than just that top pick then you're right it's just about picking the right guy but it might end up being about moving back to a spot where we can still draft an impact starter and use whatever we get when trading back to pick up another starter.

    We really need an upgrade at both forward positions in my opinion. I love the idea of Hart, Little and Winslow all coming off the bench for us. Bottom line is that Dame will need a veteran that he thinks is an upgrade from what he's played with before in order to stay happy and it seems like Cronin's first priority is to appease the Vulcans and his second priority is to make Dame happy... I don't think winning a championship is high enough on his priority list but I'm not the one who has to try and keep that job.

    My answer Sly would be ..... YES

    I think the 5th spot is a perfect pick


    My worst fear is the Blazers slide as far back as possible and NO ends up with a Top 3 pick

    We have a 62% chance of ending up with a pick higher than #5.

    What about for the #4 pick instead of #5?

    The smart answer would be yes and I'm glad it's not an option because I wouldn't do the smart thing. I'd want that 9% chance to get the first pick and 37.2% chance to move up higher than 5.

    Isn't that the Lakers pick?

    I would enjoy that.

    we should have had a poll going on which team would be the first to jump the order into the top-4. I wouldn't care much if Oregon wasn't the first just as long as they were one of the other three

    but, since about the trade deadline I've been expecting the 7th pick while hoping for a lot better luck than that

    I wouldn't because then they would have screwed us out a pick and then also got the first. Fuck that.

    they wouldn't have traded that pick without top-4 protection

    I guess I'm reading your statement wrong. Sure i'm certain you can get a top 3 out of running this simulation a number of times.
    I read your original statement as "Every Time you have run it".
    I have run that simulation quite a bit. Top 3 does not come up every time you run it.
