with kyrie irving missing some time and important games. and a very young inexperience team are the cavs heading to the lottery again in 2013. with the current record of 4-17 its very hard to seem them entering the playoffs and winning more than 25 games. and if they end up getting the # 2 pick who do you think they should draft. NERLENS NOEL or somebody else? and why

They would have to go something like 40-21 from here on out to not end up in the lottery, i think it's a safe bet.

Wasn't this expected? I mean, even with Kyrie healthy this team wasn't a playoff team yet. Couple more lottery picks, perhaps.

I mean, you hate to say it but it's probably for the best that they waste the season and end up with another high pick. Maybe do what Pops did in '97 telling The Admiral to take his sweet ***** time coming back from the injury (and then when he was ready w/25 games left Pops told him "na, you go rest up for next year" lol) to get a shot at the top pick and then firing Bob Hill when he did so he could take over as coach LOL.

But no, there isn't a Duncan in this draft and Kyrie needs to get back on the floor to continue his development.

Maybe they can tank next year too? The 2014 draft is supposed to be the deepest since 2003.

Oh, there's plenty of time still to get a look at how players fare in the NCAA tournament as well as other games and I only know what I read about the European players.

I really haven't looked into this upcoming class yet. I've followed drafts for years and had a blog covering the '02 draft and all I'll say is don't believe too much into "high risers" or "late fallers" (IE guys considered late 1sts by many that all of a sudden are the talk of the league the last week or kids considered top 3-5 talents that get dogged that last week.)

The only kid I remember getting justifiably dogged the last week was Beasley in '08. I laughed when I heard so many people coming out saying he was a highly risky player. They were right. But more often then not I ignore the last minute stuff (other than curious as to what teams are planning on doing).

Shawn Marion, Amare Stoudemire, Michael Finley and Paul Pierce where considered top 5 picks in their class until the final week or two when all of a sudden people were "down" on them. On the other side of this was Darko Milicic who gained so much hype the last few weeks with the Dirk comps that he not only ended up in the top 10 but ended up taken 2nd overall ahead of Melo, Wade and Bosh!!!

I also have an affinity for Tar Heels and would always take a flyer on a player from their program.

Is that right? I haven't checked out this upcoming class yet but early reports are that it is pretty weak.
