Hectic today..so lets cool it down
Your a senior in college, your projected to go number 1 in all the mock drafts, and pre-lottery, your favorite team has the number 1 pick, with a 25% chance of winning, However, they end up losing, and get the 3rd pick overall...ironically enough, the team you grew up hating & cant stand won the lottery..
Do you play for them anyway because you'll be the number 1 pick?
Do you bash them and pray they dont pick you?
Do you go to the workouts and do bad for every team except you favorite?
i'd be honored to have the chance to be in the nba in the first place....but to go number 1...i wouldn't care where to go.
i would play for any team, i would rather some more than others but at the end of the day you have to earn your paycheck no matter what team ur on
i think its a given you accept where you go. the lottery is a lottery and you dont get to pick where you go. you play for whatever team picks you and thats it. i think it would be easy to get past the hate part simply becauase the team never did a thing personally to you. but just suck it up and go. just be thankful your the number one. thats what makes sense to me anyway.
but just look at blake griffin though. im sure he didnt want to go to the clippers and would have loved OKC but thats how the cookie crumbles
i honestly would rather go # 3-13 so i am an underdog, but i get time to play
i'd play for whatever team picked me, id be honoured to be the #1 pick.
another thing to think about is getting picked a lot lower than many mock drafts and everything. many people take it to heart to prove people wrong and end up much better i think because of that. look at arenas, brook lopez, paul pierce. I think all these players are better because they were not picked as high. i also think blare will be added to this list soon
Any team I play for would become my favorite.
between 1's paycheck and 3 is too much for me to ignore. I need to be set. I'll play for them, hopefully it all goes well...Playing in the NBA is a dream.
Ask Paul Pierce, he hated the C's and loved the Lakers, he dealt with it though.
i see you took my role play ideas j/k
anyway its a blessing to be in the nba and to get paid for what you love to do. so it wouldnt matter to me where i play .
He grew up loving the Lakers and goes down Bleeding Green. I play for the team that thought enough of me to take me first. Happy to be in the league.
i would not go to that teams work outs i wanna be happy i dont wanna be on no bucks , lakers, king ,ock,and
celt any other team baby !!!!!
I don't think the Spurs (least favorite team) will be getting the first pick anytime soon but I guess I would have to play with them and bail after a few years.
You can always play like crap for the team that drafted you so you can get traded to another team.
What the heck? You play your hardest for any team that drafts you.
