Surprise prediction in the Lottery tonight

Most years there seems to be a surprise, as in, a team that leap frogs into the top 3. Or, a team with not very good odds winning the lottery.

What's your "surprise" prediction for tonight?

I predict Sacramento wins it and the conspiracy theorists go nuts! (Cleveland or Bobcats get pushed down to #4)

Random stupid guess.

The 76ers will get the first overall pick.

I hope so but it isn't

I hope so but it isn't likely...who would they even take first. McLemore or Noel?

Between those two I'll go

Between those two I'll go with McLemore. Noel scares me being so thin for a center, if he doesn't pack on the pounds he is liable to get injured easily. The guards on the 76ers aren't good shooters as well, so he'll improve them immediately. A trio of Holiday, Turner and McLemore could blend together nicely.

with the first pick in the NBA draft...

The Toronto Raptors will get the first pick and Wiggins will be the native Canadian son. In fact, I think there's a Disney movie already in production where Jaden Smith on stilts plays Wiggins.

Believe it or not

I think Sac-town actually gets the second pick some how. To prevent the conspiracy, but still give them an impact player.

Sacto might be better off

Sacto might be better off dropping some and then getting Trey Burke or Oladipo. Even Alex Len might be there at 5 or 6 or 7.

The Kings need a lot of help. They have one "franchise" type guy now in Cousins and could probably pick up one next year too. I think they need to get a great complementary player this year like Oladipo, or a guy to run the team like Trey Burke.

If the Raptors move into the top 3 then I think they can go with Noel, Alex Len, or Trey Burke. They could use a 5 or a point guard more than another wing. ... then the Thunder will have to wait until next year (at least) to get a great pick which might not let them improve for next year as much as they want.

This would be the most Sixers

This would be the most Sixers or Blazers time to win the #1 pick.

The Sixers, obviously coming off of Bynum's knee where he missed the entire season, staring at a potentially very good C in Noel who just tore his ACL. Knee injury centers!

The Blazers, for obvious reasons, staring at Noel with all their history in taking crocked centers.

minnesota gets screwed again

Minnesota has yet to improve their position in the draft. Meaning if they were projected to be fourth, then they will be fourth or lower. Not move up to first, second or even third. More likely than not, they moved down. I predict minny will actually move up in this draft. Not.

Real talk, after this

Real talk, after this Oklahoma tornado, don't be shocked if OKC gets a top 3 pick or the number one pick. What better story to have for the NBA than the young Thunder reloading after a tragic event. They traded away Harden due to cap space and fell short to reach the finals again after Westbrook got injured. They have a need for a young big man and a lot of people project Nerlens Noel as the number one pick. I really wouldn't be shocked at all if this happened
