That is correct. I think others were out as well as him. It was a case of bad/good luck.

I think the current lottery system in place is more because of the rockets than anything
They got Sampson,and from what I remember without googling it they tanked that season and got Hakeem
I think it was Hakeem but it could have been Sampson they won the pick on a coin flip

Oladipo's upside is terrific... but he's 6'4" and that's 2-guard territory (where Beal is). If the workouts play out a certain way, Oladipo may start rising and we may be able to trade down one or two spots and still nab Porter. Bennett is another name to watch out for.

The entire Hoyas squad was awful in the sole NCAA game against FGCU. It was a weird matchup they hadn't seen in the Big East before and Dunk City threw everyone off their game. Porter was the Big East player of the year and Jim Boeheim calls him the most complete player to come out of the conference... ever. I'm deathly afraid of the Cavs taking him first overall.

I like Bennett's post game offensively, but he has no concept of defensive fundamentals.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

I hope the wizards get the number one pick next year because similar to this years NFL draft, this nba draft doesn't really have a great player at the top of the draft. But next years nba draft should have Andrew wiggins who is supposed to be the best high school player since lebron James by pretty much every scout, and a couple of Kentucky freshmen that will be good as well. Just like next years NFL draft with clowney being the next great number one pick. But it will probably be the lakers since the draft is probably fixed.

Didn't the Griz and Celts have the best chance to get Duncan that year?? The process is stupid but the lottery was in place well before the Duncan draft. Not to mention the Spurs lost David Robinson for most of the season that year.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

I really hope the Pacers beat the Heat in game 7. Especially with Lebron James running around like a child when he elbows some one in the face and gets called for it. But in the end I do think Miami will win. But people were definitely wrong calling this team one of the best teams of all time. And comparing this team to the Lakers with Shaq, or Jordan's bulls.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

I have actually watch this series after saying the NBA was dead to me. God I hope the Pacers win. Probably wishfully thinking as we all know NBA is WWE spelled wrong. Probably all ready determined who has won the championship.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

Is it too late to draft Paul George over John Wall?

Pacers all the way tonight

Having said that the Pacers will win tonight.
I find it very hard to hate the Spurs. They do things the right way from top to bottom. A model organization across all major sports
