Just wondering what would you guys rather have, a team that loses in the 1st round, or a team in the top 10 draft picks?

depends on their situation. A young team building, like the Wolves, who just lost their star player, need a high pick. A team like Portland, who is the next step above, should be in the playoffs. Dallas, Phx, etc are playoffs or bust. I just depends on the situation. I as a fan would rather see them in the playoffs in all reality, regardless of circumstances. It is more exciting for the fans of that team.

Playoffs easily. Bulls have had 7 top 5 picks the last 10 years.

The playoffs. Give your fans a reason to come and you can still get a good draft pick

Playoffs. You can just deal for picks. I hate the word lottery. I hate leaving things to chance. Earning wins are more rewarding because you can easily make adjustments since you see the results of your own efforts.

yeah as a bulls fan id take a 1st round exit. seeing all these top 5 and top 10 picks not mesh or pan out, most likely the exception with rose. but still.

I think the Bulls would actually be better off getting into the lottery, and then making noise in the playoffs next year. Let's not forget, the majority of the Bulls roster (outside of Derrick Rose) has been in the playoffs before, so it's not like they're in dier need of post-season experience. If they could add a quality low-post player like Greg Monroe, or a quality Center like Hashem Thabeet, I think that would be the way to go, instead of getting knocked out in the 1st round by the Celtics or Cavs.

who am i?

If i already have good young pieces for all the positions and will have cap space in the near future ( Blazers, thunder) i will prefer to make the Poffs.

If im capped out or still have pieces missing in my scheme then i woudl preffer the first pick ( Kniks, Clippers, Warriors, Grizzlies, Wolves...)

Put it this way: I'd rather have a championship than anything else, but I'd rather a top 5 pick in the 2003 draft than a first round exit.

Well since we already know the playoff team would lose 1st round, easily the top 10 pick then

Definitely a top 10 pick... What would I do with a first round exit? Then again... What would I do with 7 top 5 picks that have done nothing for us???
(Excluding D. Rose of course:))

Win. I'm pretty some fans would give anything just for their teams to be in the playoffs.

what i mean is you can still get a very good player in the second half of the draft.

lol, two months late? really?



the chances of getting a good player are so much higher earlier than later that to bank on getting a Josh Howard at pick 30 is a joke of a business move.

you CAN get a good player late, but far more often than likely you won't, and if your team has a chance to land one of four superstars in a draft (ie 2003) with a top 5 pick, then I'd rather that then a first round exit...

but in a draft such as this upcoming one (weak, but deep), as a Nets fan I'd much rather have gotten to the playoffs and at least had a chance at giving young players playoff experience and a fight with the best for at least four games.
