Ok the concept is simple I'm gonna come up with a what if and the next person then gives an answer to that what if and come up with a what if of their own. Ok so here I go.

What if the Utah Jazz (New York Knicks) gets the 2010 number 1 overall pick? What should they do with it?

Trade down and fill a void like 2guard... What if the Nets sign Lebron and Joe Johnson goes to Chi?

Um, Deron Williams?

If I were Utah, I'd either trade the pick or draft Cousins since Boozer is probably gone after this season.

Nets are a top 3 team in the East, Chicago get marginally better.

What if Wade leaves Miami? Do they become the worst team in the NBA?

They very well could if Beasley doesn't blossom.

What if Turkoglu were still in Orlando instead of Carter? Would the Magic be as good, better, or worse than they are right now?

Draft Turner, knowing that they could never get full value for Wall or D-Will once both are on the same team, they'd get screwed.

What if the Lakers repeat as champions and Kobe's avging 30+ppg-5+rpg-5+apg, is he the best in the league again?

No. Because they think Beasley is a Superstar; but seriously, No, they'd have insane cap space, and they can either keep it in tact for trade options, or they overpay Mike Miller and Al Harrington. So yeah, they will suck but not really the Worst team.

What if, Lebron leaves CLEVELAND. Will they make the playoffs? And will Danny Ferry + Mike Brown be fired?

IMO Kobe is the best player in the league, he has just been battling through injuries all year

When did he stop being the best? What if Kobe opts out?

If he leaves, the Lakers are screwed because they would have no backcourt and no cap room to sign anyone

Then Kobe leaves for the Knicks Bulls or Clippers

Kobe's been to 6 finals and won 4, What if he goes to 3 more and wins 2 is he better than MJ?

Still no. For 3 of his four championships he wasn't the best player on his team. IMO there is NOTHING Kobe can do anymore (age) to surpass Jordan in terms of rank.

What if the Thunder signs David Lee at season's end will they be legitimate title contenders for years to come.

You're all ruining this thread by talking about Kobe too much. What if no more threads were made on PSD about Derrick Rose or Kobe Bryant?

Then the sight would be Dull... What if the top 10 players always played in the best 10 markets?

Then the other 20 teams will become irrelevant to the everyone who's not a fan of them.

What if LeBron left Cleveland at season's end. Will they still be a top 5 seed in the East?

Top 5? Maybe. Top 8? Probably.

What if the NBA expanded 12 more additional teams across Canada?
Will the play-off spots be expanded as well from 8 to 16?

The NBA will lose all its crediblilty. Plus it will be kind of strange seeing that NBA stands for National Basketball Association and with more than a quarter of the teams in canada it may seem strange.

What if the Thurder signs David Lee in the off season. Will they be a legitimate title contender like on the Cavs or Lakers level.

They'll be a contender but will need a year or two to win it, but they'll win at least 3 titles in the upcoming decade

Going vintage on mine, what if Patrick Ewing entered the '84 draft with Jordan, Olajuwon, Barkley, Stockton and Bowie? Where would MJ have ended up? Do the Blazers take Ewing and build a dynasty around Patrick and Clyde?
