    So that's tonight. How do you want the top 5 to look and why?

    I will start with my hopeful prediction:

    1. Atlanta
    2. Phoenix
    3. Orlando
    4. Memphis
    5. Mavericks

    The East needs the stars more. Atlanta could use some luck. I really don't want Chicago or Philly to get lucky and get in the top 3. I think it would be cool if the Knicks won the lottery. Its about time they became relevant again.

    I somewhat disagree. As a small market club, we need to collectively cross our fingers for places like NYC and LA to stay down for as long as possible.

    It would take a borderline miracle for NY to emerge as a threat. And even if they do, a Mitchell in MSG Finals would be unreal...

    I'm an Alabama guy and my best friend is a huge Knicks fan. I hate the Bulls and Sprewell was a beast (Bama boy). I have a soft spot for the Knicks.

    And hell no I'm not that dumbass Carmelo....

    Mitchell’s from the northeast, his dad works for the Mets, and if the knicks rose to power enough to make the finals.. I’d rather not open that can of worms lol.

    As long as both LA teams and NYC are down, there are fewer places detracting from keeping our own players and it increases the attractiveness of SLC for free agents and trades.

    1-ATL
    2-Charlotte
    3-Detroit
    4-Phx
    5-Memphis

    Keep top talent out of the west. Push Philly and Cleveland down. Prevent Clippers from rebuilding.

    I want the Kings to land in the top3. They didnt tank with the same fervor as many of the other bottom feeders.

    I'd like to see ATL land #1 too, they'd have to take Ayton.

    If the Knicks win the lottery the pick will be Ayton.

    The Magic is the team that actually needs the #1 the most.

    If Magic wins Nr. 1 any chance they will be more willing to part with Gordon?

    It's "never time" for the Knicks or the Lakers to be relevant imo

    I want Igor to do well, but also eff Phoenix. I think I'd like all east teams to win... except Philly and or Boston (I think they get it if it's top 2-3), and Cleveland... those bastards always win.

    I don't want Igor to do well (in Phoenix). I don't need him stealing Ricky next July, or influencing other Euro's to live in Phoenix. Its a tough world but bottom feeders gotta hope for every advantage they can get.

    Chances the Jazz pick another "gem" in the 1st round?

    Is there a reason in this draft for us to try to package something to move up significantly?

    Has nothing to do with the Jazz. So I couldn't care less.

    Thought you should all know.

    Enough of a reason that moving into the top ten is probably impossible, if that makes sense.
