Simple question, if the Lakers get the number 1 pick, what will your reaction be?

Here is the poll I meant to post:


1. Seems legitimate. They had a small but realistic chance so no complaints here.

2. I suspect foul play, but can't really prove it so I will just have to accept it.

3. Rigged! But that's part of good business so it doesn't really bother me.

4. Total ********!! I will discredit every single win the Lakers get with that player.

5. The NBA is a ****ing joke. I'm done!!

I wanted to get everyone's reaction, not just people in the Lakers forum. I meant to post a poll but I didn't do it within 10 minutes and now it won't let me.

Are you asking if people will scream "The NBA is FIXED!"? Yeah, they probably will.

I don't think it is, but that would just be really funny.

But yes, people will scream and throw tantrums and cry foul if the Lakers get the first pick. There are a lot of infantile people out there.

The biggest story of the offseason. Even non basketball fans would hear about lakers getting the first pick. Can't think of any other team hyping up this draft to must watch TV then the lakers.

People will scream fixed no matter who gets the pick. There's a great article I read about all the lotto teams last year and a good argument being made about each team getting the #1 pick as a fix. It's pretty funny, and point being, any team that gets it, there's a good argument to be made about why it was fixed for them. People are just dumb. It's not fixed.

its inevitable. when a big market with odds out of the top five get a top three pick fans start screaming foul. you guys know this because you guys were 8th in total odds going into 2008, and you got rose. people cried foul then, and they'll cry foul if LAL lands top three this season. but thats the give and take of a lottery, it all comes down to odds and chances and every team in the top six of the lottery has a statistical chance above 5% to win it (#1 peaking out at 25% of total ping pong balls). Chicago won it with 3% odds.

Chicago actually won it with a 1.9% change I believe. And yes, people cried then too.

People don't understand that even though one team has a 25% chance of winning it, that also means they have a 75% of not winning.

Do I want the Lakers to get a pick 1-3, Hell no...I hate the Lakers..haha..but I in no way will think it was rigged if they do.

05-19-2014, 06:26 PM
Glad to see there are some rational people on here. I don't think we'll get number 1 but we have a 20% chance to get top 3 which is pretty decent odds and a realistic possibility.

When the Clippers pick (Irving) that got traded to Cleveland was the top pick they did so with the 8th worst record, 3% odds. Portland won the Oden pick with the 6th worst odds. Orlando had the 11th worst odds when they selected Chris Webber. the team with the top odds has only won the lottery once dating back to 2004. these things happen.

since 2005 the teams with the two highest probability of winning the lottery have only won the lottery twice (Orlando with dwight and LAC with Blake).

This exactly. Any team winning can be rationalized as evidence of a fix.

Im hoping the Lakers get a top 3 pick. If that happens look out for a draft day trade (or just before the draft) with the Lakers offering that pick, Sacre plus Nash thrown in just to make the salaries match up for K Love.

Or convince Pau to do a sign and trade plus the pick.

as a fan of a small market team that has NEVER moved up once, it would piss me off beyond belief.




Unless they traded it to Minny in a package for Love. Though, outside a pick, wtf can the Lakers offer?

Nothing, which is why I think the rumors are dumb. Lakers should keep the pick and score love for free next year. I'm just hoping my front office isn't dumb enough to offer the pick, and your front office is too greedy to accept it.

any trade Kevin Love accepts will include a sign, then trade. no team will trade for love as a one year rental. they might but Minny won't get back the kind of package they want. love will agree to where he is traded, then complete a sign and trade.

thats laker arrogance right there man. there is zero guarantee that love just walks into our arms, there are plenty of other respectable suitors. that mentality will lead to us losing free agents when we could have acquired them through trade. things are different in the post dr buss era, all assumptions gotta be thrown out the window.

Not that it's the same thing since the draft is better this year but the Suns were in a similar spot last season and wound up missing out on the #4 seed (Cleveland) which turned into the #1 pick on lottery night.

You guys have a legit shot tonight.

I think the Lakers would be one of the last teams the NBA would risk "rigging" things for. Like they need the league's help :laugh:

The benefits don't even come close to outweighing the risk. The Lakers will be fine regardless. They have that natural leg up on most every other team. I think it's borderline crazy to think the league would bend over backwards to help them. There's just no need. That franchise is gonna be solid...and at the same time they aren't as vital to the league as you might think. They are important, for sure...but not to the point where risking the integrity of the league is worth it. Again, the risk of getting caught "rigging" things (which would eventually happen if it truly is happening with the frequency some think) doesn't make it worth it at all.

With this new K. Love situation, I would be very bummed if they got a top 3 pick - specifically #1 - because it would increase their chances of him going there in free agency (which at this point, I think are low).

They've got a 22% chance at a top 3 pick, we'll see how it goes.
