    Yeah man you never know what he does with the opportunity. Plus with 20 games left itís a good time to see what we can get out of him.

It is totally possible in this strange season that we are what our record shows. I'm hoping for a lower record. I wonder if the team makes choices to ensure it (keeping players out).
    There's just more noise this season so you can't really rely on those statistical markers. I mean our final stretch of games are against a lot of playoff teams fighting for positioning. I don't really see us winning any of those, maybe sneak a couple wins here and there. Even at full strength, .500 would be quit difficult in this final stretch. Next 20 games, I could see us winning maybe 5-7 games.

    Lowry, FVV, Siakam, OG, Trent jr, Boucher.

    Problem is weíre only about 6 deep. Canít imagine them in the loffs this year tbh. Would we really depend on guys like Bembry, Baynes, Flynn, to play significant roles in the post season? Thatís why Iíve been all for the tank. We need to add some pieces.

    Thatís a great starting point for a lottery team though.

    You may be right. Watching tonight isn't giving me a of confidence in my previous position...

    All jokes aside, if we had a legit C all year and Baynes was simply a back up I think we would actually be happy with him. I know that he does come off the bench when Siakam starts at the 5 but thatís out of necessity. I donít really wanna go small next year with Siakam banging at the 5. He could end up getting injured. Heís a finesse big.
    It isn't a joke at all. I'd start Birch over Baynes too...

    Yesssss absolutely, thatís why Iím stoked brother. With our scouting team picking gems late in the draft or finding undrafted gems I canít help but feel enthusiastic about what we can add while keeping the core intact.

    You might already know this but, the Spurs were a 2nd round playoff team just like us. Robinson broke his leg and was out for the season. The Spurs ended up drafting Tim Duncan and the rest is history.

    Now Iím not expecting a Tim Duncan, but surely we can draft a talented player in the top 10 range if we land there and adding that to a pretty good core already is just so intriguing to me.

    Youíre the one that got me looking in to this draft class and getting excited about it. Iím really not that big on college ball admittedly. But after looking up some of the entrants in the draft, I can def see some players whoís games can translate well to the nba level.

    It is pretty obvious to me that the Raptors definitely after last night simply just are not good enough to make the playoffs or even the play in tournament either. May as well start the tank now and land a high draft pick in this year's upcoming draft. After last night's loss, Draft lottery odds now look towards getting Keon Johnson, Scottie Barnes or Jonathan Kuminga now.

    I have June 22nd circled on my calendar. I've been in the soft tank team for the past couple of months and now I'm in the full on tank team. I just hope we get some friendly ping pong ball bounces. This is a deep draft, but the top 5 is the dream.

    Yah, it is an exciting year. Even outside the consensus Top 4 there are a bunch of guys that are potentially big difference makers. I still wish we were able to grab another 1st round pick at the deadline... Curious what those 2nd rounders turn into.

    I'm hoping one of the second rounders turns into a high upside low floor center like Badji or Sotto. Both are really intriguing as to what they potentially could be.

    I was reading on Sotto. Would be a solid pick for us in the 2nd round

    Mobley

    So can someone explain to me how the lottery works now ever since they changed it? We donít really need to be dead lost to land in the top 5 do we ?

    Top 4 picks are all determined by the lottery balls. Odds are flattened from previous years. After the Top 4, rest of draft is based on reverse standings. Here is a link show the odds if the season ended today: http://www.tankathon.com/

    Raptors are now tied with OKC I believe for 7th worst record. 29% chance to land in Top 4, 6.7% chance at Top 1.
