Of the teams in the lottery which team do you hope gets Anthony Davis?

Of these lottery teams 1) Charlotte 2) Washington, 3) Cleveland, 4) New Orleans 5) Sacramento 6) Portland 7) Golden State 8) Toronto 9) Detroit 12) Milwaukee 13) Phoenix 14) Houston which one of these teams do you hope will get the number one pick to draft Anthony Davis? I personally want to see the Sacramento Kings get the first pick just to see DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis together on the court.

Bobcats I think its sad that

Bobcats I think its sad that they never got off to a good start draft wise in the history of their franchise always missing out. I think davis can turn this around.

If they dont win I would like to see another team in the east win like Det Or Mil we need to bring some talent back to the east coast.

Doesn't really matter to me

Just would like to see him go to a team that is interesting. The Kings wouldn't be bad. Think a lot of teams could use him and he certainly seems like a player who could help out pretty quickly. I think just about any team would be interested in moving some players around to make a good fit for him. The Blazers are probably the team that would need him the least with LaMarcus Aldridge already a good fit at PF, not to mention the odds are not in their favor with New Jersey's pick being top 3 protected and the 11th selection. Otherwise, think just about every team is crossing their fingers for him.

Personally Cleveland

I want him to go to the right situation.

-First: Cleveland, could benefit from Kyrie from day 1, and to be part one of the most powerful front courts from years to come (With Tristam Thompson)

-Washington: Adding Nene was a big plus for them last season, Davis could learn a lot from him, especially how to play in the post. and they suddenly became more intelligent by leaving Young and Mcgee. They just need to get rid of Blatche now.

-Kings: With Cousins as a Post scorer Davis could help right now on defense.

-Pistons: Pairing him with Monroe could do wonders for this organization.

-NOT Bobcats: i dont want them to land him, its a very terrible team and organization.

I'd like to see the Pistons

I'd like to see the Pistons become a playoff team again and I think Davis would be a great addition next to Monroe. I don't think they're too far off from getting over the hump, and a #1 pick plus another year of experience for Monroe and Knight might be what it takes. It's a bit of a long shot, but I'd love to see Davis in a Pistons jersey.

The wizards first since I live there, but I believe the pistons are the best fit for him to grow around other good young talent.

As a lifelong follower of the

As a lifelong follower of the Cleveland Cavaliers, I really, really covet the services of Mr. Davis. In a perfect world, the Cavaliers would draft Anthony Davis at No. 1, and trade Anderson Varejao, the No. 24 pick, and the No. 33 pick to move up into the back end of the lottery for Austin Rivers or Terrence Ross, most likely Ross. Kyrie-Ross-Gee-TT-Davis.

If the Cavaliers don't get the top pick, I'd like to see New Orleans get it. After losing Chris Paul and David West, I'd like to see them get back on their feet by adding Anthony Davis and Kendall Marshall and keeping Eric Gordon in town.

I just don't want to see his talent wasted in Charlote

I also don't want to see him go to The Kings or Raptors either, The Kings have a group of knuckleheads and the Raps would make him look redundant with Aamir Johnson, Ed Davis, Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valencunas on the roster

The Blazers wouldn't be a great fit unless LA moves to C and allows Davis some time to get stronger, but Mikey already said that The Blazers chances are slim they get to draft him with their Own Lottery Pick...

The Cavs could be a great place for him because they have a true Point Guard and could use all the help they can get...I also don't like the Idea of them adding a Guard in the draft, I'd rather the Cavs draft a Bigman and sign a Sg and Sf in Free Agency...

The Wizards and Cavs would be my choices for Anthony Davis, In Washington he and Wall would have Nene and some other role players to build around...

In Cleveland, Davis would be surrounded by Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, vets like Jamison and Varejeo can help him out down the road...

I would like to see Anthony Davis in a Raptor or Kings, he would be ideal with either Demarcus Cousins or Jonas Valanciunas.

If Cha gets him it isn't much

If Cha gets him it isn't much they can do to mess up success. is it?? lol .If they build there team staring with davis they can be like an okc of the east with a few more future top picks.

I think they will be in the lottery for another half a decade atleast now theres always a player that comes around every 10 years thats just....that just has unbelievable talent for example:

After high school

96: kobe bryant 2006:kevin durant

im not saying this is definte science but in 10 years you have a good chance of getting a great player another example:

2003:lebron 2012-2013-2014: _________ who knows yet another great player cha will have a good chance of getting going off their horrible history of losing.I dont think its a bad thing they are in the nba they just need a chance, their fans are great for sure showing up to all these losing seaons .lol

As a Cavs fan, obviously I'd love him in a Cavs uniform. I think Kyrie/AD would be a very good combination, and AD/TT would be a solid front court. Kings would be my 2nd choice for his services, as hopefully that would start to put the Kings over the hump so they can eventually make the playoffs (and we can get their 1st round pick!)

But.. I don't think I've ever felt as bad as I do for the Charlotte Bobcats. Wow, they're bad. They need all the help they can get, and if they draft AD then hopefully that will stop Michael Jordan from overpaying for mediocre free agents this off season.

If Charlotte is the Lucky

If Charlotte is the Lucky team to select him..Will he want to resign with a small market team in a few years? And will there even be a pro team in Charlotte in 5 years?

Their only small market

Their only small market because they dont have much to offer. OKC was a no market city and would have never had a pro team if it wasnt for Katrina,PPl said blake wouldnt want to stay on the clips or even play for them now its LOB CITY.

I think Cha can be something if giving chance and starting today their my team now lets GO BOBCATS Im rooting for the undercats(underdogs).

I like seeing good management

I like seeing good management rewarded. That means:

3. The Pistons - I love what they do developing talent. Monroe, Stuckey and Knight are a great core. They'd be higher, but the Gordon and Villanueva messes that crippled the franchise financially shouldn't be washed away.

2. Blazers - Fleeced the Nets, have LMA and great management. They might be 1 if they, you know, had a GM.

1. Rockets - With Davis they could do a mini-teardown and would be a title contender within 3-years. They have so many assets - a great defender as their core who could and would be a susperstar if developed by them, Davis would be incredible in Houston. Imagine if they brought back Camby how impressive they'd be defensively? McHale is also great with young bigs. All around, this is win.

The team I hope gets Davis

The team I hope gets Davis the most is the Detroit Pistons. He would be a great fit there and the team looks to already have solid pieces in place. He and Monroe would be great together.

Washington, Wall and Davis

Washington, Wall and Davis fast breaks, alley-oops, and pick-n-rolls should be very entertaining

Charlotte too, its about time that franchise actually looks like a franchise

Anthony Davis is best when he

Anthony Davis is best when he is playing smaller defenders, then play help defense against the others guys. Thats why I think he would fit best in Sacramento. He could play the Pf with a legit center, play off-ball and swatting shots like no other. Also Davis' offensive game doesn't require him to play purely in the paint so it wont hurt him that Cousins is purely a low-post player. The only problem is the PG position, but there is a problem with every lottery team, that why they are in the lottery.

I want him next to a star

I want him next to a star point guard so they would have a couple of good foundation pieces. I would love for the Cavs to get him, but wouldn't be upset if he goes to the Wizards to play with Wall. It's also good that the Wizards and Cavs will have more balls floating around combined between the two than the Bobcats. I know the Bobcats need Davis, but I am going to feel very sorry for him if thats where he ends up. Just seems like they always make the wrong decisions.

After watching Andray Blatche

After watching Andray Blatche start for the Wizards the last 2+ years I'd love to have Davis paired up with John Wall. Davis does everything Blatche doesn't do on a consistent basis. Runs the floor, plays team ball, blocks/alter shots just to name a few. Davis on the pistons with Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight, and Prince still there as the vet leader. If the Kings get him Demarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis would be SCARY once Davis bulks up.Golden State with a healthy Bogut and Davis front court with a healthy Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in the back would give Mark Jackson some great pieces to worth with.

I want davis to go to new

I want davis to go to new orleans. I can't pick the cavs because 3 number 1 picks in 10 years is not fair and the cavs have a terrible front office, they couldnt get any help for LeBron. The also didnt want to throw JJ hickson in a package to get amare which might of kept lebron in cleveland. I would then go with the raptors and pistons. The raptors have decent structure and their team isnt filled with bad charactor guys.

Cavs Fans

Obviously no matter who gets #1 will likely pick Davis, but it would be a pretty big waste since he and Tristan Thompson play the exact same position, and neither of them is built to play the 5. Saying that they would make a good frontcourt in Cleveland together is just odd to hear to say the least.

@Phila9012, The Cavs "front

@Phila9012,

The Cavs "front office" right now is a whole different management group than it was when LeBron was here. Danny Ferry was the GM here then, and it's now been turned over to Chris Grant. So don't hold Ferry's mistakes against Chris Grant.

Secondly, they did absolutely everthing LeBron wanted them to, it just didn't work. He wanted a PG so they found one in Mo Williams. He wanted Shaq so they went out and got Shaq. He wanted a four so they went out and got Jamison.

I agree, I wish they would've traded Hickson because I can't stand Hickson, but they did everything they could to surround LeBron and it just didn't work. I'm not mad at LeBron for leaving town, I am mad at him for QUITTING in Game 5 against Boston in 2010. The Cavs were playing at home, tied 2-2, and LeBron just didn't feel like playing. He quit like a little girl. It was pathetic.

Quitters make me sick, and he's a quitter. If you go back and watch that game, you will see the body language and facial gestures of someone who doesn't even want to be in the building. He truly did not even want to be playing basketball that night.

I'm hoping he does not win a ring in Miami, but for me, that's less about him and more about which franchises are worth rooting for. I like when an organization builds a title team from the ground up, by drafting well, making wise choices in free agency, developing players' growth, and instilling team principles. I don't like when a franchise shells out the dollars and just throws a bunch of superstars out there. That's why I'd like to see Indiana beat Miami. They drafted Granger, Hibbert, and George, signed West, a second-tier FA, and traded for Collison. Bird was smart with his resources and it won him Executive of the Year.

I suppose I got off track here, but my point is that the Cavs are doing it correctly right now. The trade that brought them the No. 1 pick that landed Kyrie was a very astute trade. They picked Kyrie and Tristan instead of Derrick Williams and Brandon Knight. Chris Grant and Byron Scott know what they're doing.

imagine this

The trailblazers win the lottery so the nets get anthony davis. They then sign AK47 and then trade lopez, wallace/humphries, some other player and future picks for dwight howard. Then deron williams would definitely stay. But i am aware that this has no chance of happening. A nets fan can only dream lol.

I would like to see Davis on

I would like to see Davis on the Pistons, Hornets, Wizards, or Kings in that order.

I would not like to see Davis go to the Warriors (because of their obvious tanking at the end of the season,) Raptors, Cavaliers, Blazers or Nets, and Bobcats in that order.

I didnt bother listing the Bucks, Suns, and Rockets because its too much of a longshot.

Detroit Pistons- I like the way Detroit came out and tried to win every game even though they knew they had no chance of making the playoffs, instead of trying to tank like some of the other teams in the lottery. So, I feel like they deserve it the most. I think this is the best fit for Davis as they really need an athletic and defensive minded PF to play with Greg Monroe.

New Orleans Hornets- I have a feeling they're going to get the first pick. Just how Cleveland lost LeBron and got the first pick the year after, I think the Hornets get the first pick a year after the Chris Paul trade. The Hornets are also in need of a PF. With the 10th pick and if they re'sign Eric Gordon, this team could have a bright future.

Washington Wizards- I feel bad for John Wall because he has had no help in his first two years in Washington. Davis has the motor that this team lacks, and would be a instant upgrade over Andray Blatche.

Sacramento Kings- It'd be fun to watch Cousins and Davis play together. They'd be one of the best young front courts in the NBA

If somehow our luck changes

If somehow our luck changes in Sacramento and we land davis, hallelujah, our franchise is saved. But I think we'll end up with thomas robinson honestly and the hornets will get davis. It just seems like too perfect of a situation.

Where Davis should go?

Personally, Davis should go to the pistons. He fits well with monroe and prince/daye. He wouldn't be asked to do much offensively but he can do wonders defensively for their front line. Also, if the pistons resign ben wallace he could help him train to add more muscle and we have the best trainer (mike abdenour) to helphim as well. Speaking as a pistons fan i would love them dominant the eastern conference and really show teams that you don't need a "superstar" or a "big three" to win just good old fashion blue collar work ethic. All we would have to do is get rid of Villianueva and gordon ...

Also, i don't think that it is fair that the bobcats or the cavs keep getting the #1 pick because as many times as the bobcats had to #1,2 or 3 pick they blew it bad pick..so why do they keep getting rewarded with high draft pick again? Its just bad management.

team i want to win the lotto

team i want to win the lotto is new jersey. wheather that results in him being paired up with deron and gerald wallace or he gets shipped with lopez and brooks to orlando for dwight howard. i might even be more excited with the thought that of him going to Orlando. having a new nucleus of young talent and spearheaded by Anthony Davis could be a nice change for the Magic who has gone as far as they can with the Dwight Howard era of their time with them. time to revamp the team and blow it up, and see in 2 to 3 years if they can make the play-offs again. do something simillar to what Utah did when they dealt their star player to New Jersey. now they are loaded with young talent and able to maintain competitive enough to qualify for a play-off berth.

My dubs number 1of course, then it would be the Kings, DeMarcus and Anthony Davis, in the same frontcourt? That's a scary thought. Davis with Wall would be cool, Irving and Davis would be nice as well.

As a Suns fan, I hope we get him but the chances are slim otherwise my choices would be Charlotte, Kings and Pistons pretty much for the reasons given above.

Charlotte need a boost, DMC and Davis could be huge for the Kings and Detroit would be a good fit alongside Monroe.

Yeah, the Nets getting Davis

Yeah, the Nets getting Davis would be cool but only if they didn't trade him for Dwight Howard. I'd be interested to see what D-Will would do if the Nets got Davis as D-Will could have a guy who would be a potential franchise player on the same team for a lot of years.
