Okay, fair enough. Here is the first sentence of your post:
And it makes no sense at all to me. If you are saying that you have no chance at a top pick if you are not in the top four of lotto odds, then you are objectively wrong, and all recent lottery history proves it. Please explain your statement so that I can understand. Bonus points if you can explain it with 'facts'.
nice try last draft one team outside the top 4 moved into it from 7th the other three teams in the top 4 were already there.
the previous draft 1 team outside the top 4 moved into the top 4 again from 7th the other 3 teams stayed int he top 4 that were already there.
The previous year 2 teams outside the top 4 moved up from 7 and 8 not 5 or 6. the previous draft was the only one where being outside the top 4 turned out to be lucky again with 2 teams at 7th and 8th moving up and a team with bad odds moving up to 4th from 11th.
Jazz just beat them "win now- never tank" Raps and clearly the plan for us is to win playing good players not scrubb g leaguers.
I said it would take the gleaguers starting to become anywhere near the high lottery club this late in the season. But after review of the
teams that move up if history is some kind of indicator picks 5 and 6 are a bad spot to be at before the lottery anyway smh.
Hardy and these players are hungry to prove they are worthy of this league and will NOT tank, without more intentional benchings.
Yes the sell off by Ainge was a obvious attempt to go full tank to finish the season, at first glance,
but at the same time he knows damn well it would fire the remaining pieces up, and he could find out of any of them were actully worth keeping.
I get what he did now more than at first. His thinking is solid. If they fail fine, we needed a better shot at the grand prize, albeit not much better of one, but if they win half the games to close the season or are even better than before the sell off, we didn't NEED Wemby anyway.
I think we are drafting 10-16 range
