this may be another conspiricy theory.. but im pretty sure the lakers get the number one pick. The Nba know LA is basketball world. With the rams and the nfl coming back here.. Los angeles may become football territory. I know im gonna get a lot of heat for this.. but id still like to hear what everyone else thinks? Btw im a laker fan but i swear im not biased in my view in any way. I just know that money makes the world go round

There's 14 balls in a machine. If you want the Lakers to win it: lets say they have numbers 9-10-11-12 thru 11-12-13-14, you weigh down every ball except 9 and 10 or 11. That increases their odds tremendously.

Lakers are the biggest winners.

Sixers have choices to make, Go with Simmons, though the need Shooting and scoring on the perimeter that Ingram would provide.

The lakers would thrive would either and don't really HAVE to choose.

Celtics will get Buddy Hield it seems.

Except that's not how the machine works at all. There's 1001 possible combinations and so the Sixers had 250 different combinations assigned to them to equal their 25%.

Idk. Embiid needs to get on the floor first and the game isn't suited towards big centers anymore.

I'd keep embiid over the other two (noel/oka) cuz he's unknown and could really be a force.

I just hope he gets on court.

I'm just so happy the Lakers have the number two pick. I'm suspecting the 76ers will draft Simmons. He has too much potential to pass up. Looks like Ingram will be a Laker. He is a perfect fit. He has length, shooting, a decent defender, and fundamentals. We have longed for a SF in Lakerland. The one thing I would ask him to do is gain some muscle. He has proven he can do that (He gained weight at Duke). Once he fills out, he will be perfect for us especially in the offense Luke has in store. I'm a huge fan of Simmons but he and Randle together would be redundant.

Stunner

Philly drafts Simmons and sends Okafor and 24th pick to Boston for their third pick once they can't find a all star to trade for .

Philly draft Murray with the 3rd pick

hugepatsfan
05-17-2016, 10:10 PM
Or you trade Oka to boston and draft hield with the number 3 pick : )

I'm sure this will be rumored heavy but I don't see it. I don't think BOS will be willing to include enough in the package, because Hield for Okafor is slanted BOS's way. Only way this happens IMO is that PHI thinks Simmons is a star and they have to have him but can't find great value for Okafor so they settle for #3 and lower tier guys (like Rozier, RJ Hunter - guys who have show a little something but ultimately project only as bottom of the rotation bench guys).

That's my only issue like if we draft Simmons then that will almost certainly mean we would trade Randle. But if we draft Ingram we would have no need to trade Randle. The Sixers are in the same boat as us since they have Noel at PF and if the drafted Simmons then they would have two at PF.

I've always heard the reverse. It's bigs that don't produce until year 3-4. You can usually get production out of guards sooner, because in high school and college they have to outplay a lot of guys with similar builds, where big men can just subsist on size. In college how often does an NBA caliber 7fter go against another NBA caliber 7fter? Twice a year?

Lakers should get a package together and and trade for Cousins or PG13

I still don't get why people think Paul George is available. I think they should tade for Steph Curry. Doesn't mean it's plausible.

I think KD would be a nice replacement for Harrison Barnes, and might as well pick up AD to come off the bench too.
