2010 draft lottery

Ok I know it is too early but hey I've seen some people post their mock drafts already so why not. What will be the Lottery order for the 2010 draft.
My order but could change very much
1 T'wolves(what were the T'wolves doing drafting Rubio and Flynn right after each other?)
2 Kings
3 Rockets(Losing Yao is big for them, irreplaceable)
4 Pistons(Hamilton and Prince not staying, this team is going downhill fast
5 Grizz
6 Warriors
7 Thunder
8 Bucks
9 Knicks(jazz pick)(I'm hoping it's higher like 3-6 range, but I doubt it.)
10 Clippers
12 Heat(have not done anything yet and unless they do then they are lottery bound)
13 Bobcats
14 Nets, but Bulls could go here too.
Do not even try and guess who will win the lottery just put the teams in what order you think will be their rankings. Worst team gets the top pick, and team that just barely misses the playoffs gets the 14th pick
I'm really curios to see what your thoughts are.

R U Crazy? The Warriors

R U Crazy? The Warriors are better than the Thunder, Bucks, Knicks, Bobcats, Nets, Clippers, & Heat. Also the Bulls are WAY better than the Nets. But yeah putting the Bucks & Knicks & Nets as being better than the Warriors is absolutely the funniest thing I have heard in a while. lol

i also think the Thunder

i also think the Thunder will be better than the Warriors, 1 thing is the Warriors dont have 1 clearcut star that can lead a team and take over at the end of games, the Thunder have K.D.

Stephen Jackson is pretty

Stephen Jackson is pretty clutch. Anthony Randolph is about to takeover. You all do realize the Warriors had a better record than the Thunder last season. Last year the Warriors had a lot of injuries. Jackson, Maggette, & Ellis all missed significant time. Its not even that close...I promise yall the Warriors will be better than the Thunder this season... u can take that to the bank.

i dont know there is a few

i dont know there is a few reasons i dont like them 1. I don't think they are good at all on D ,except for Beidrins theyr'e mediocre 2. they strike me as a bunch of players that only care about theirs ( Ellis argueably the best player on that team and Maggette ) 3. I wouldnt want to rely on Stephen Jackson, or Monta Ellis to single handedly win us a game in crucial games 4. Don Nelson is a total moron of a coach

It's too early...

It's too early, man! But I pity the Knicks for having their pick go to the Jazz, i mean, it's just unlucky for them.... I was hoping they'd get their savior in John Wall or a Derrick Favors but I guess better luck next time... Jazz are going to find talents this year whether they get top 3 or not...

just ding this out of curiosity

I'm just doing this out of curiosity. The Nets will not make the playoff next year which is why they are in the lottery, but I think they will be in the lottery for a year or 2 more. They have a good team with Lopez, Harris, and Lee, and Alston as their backup to Harris. Not quite sure Terrence Williams though, he fills their need but could he start? The warriors should have a good year they should probably get 9th or 10th place. Revised draft lottery:
1T'wolves
2Kings
3 Rockets
4 Pistons(Rip and Tayshaun are gone, because they are looking rebuild their team. Both of them played on the Old Pistons team of The Wallaces (big Ben and Rasheed), Prince, Rip, and Chauncey, now only Rip and Tayshaun remain, so they should be leaving. besides Rip is playing Ben Gordon's position. He is not coming off the bench and there is no way he is playing the point, he is a shooter, so he is 2 guard, not a point.)
5 Grizz
6 Bucks(they need a PF, and Alexander needs a year or two to develop better, but a good start, Redd is getting they need a new star player, someone to build around)
7 Knicks(Jazz Pick, you are right marcusfizer21, the knicks got screwed this year, the Jazz will pick someone good. I hope it's Monroe, that kid will be special with the Jazz.)
8 Warriors(Maggette will probably get injured again, either that or be traded, along with Randolph or Biedrins, or Brandon Wright to get Amare. Randolph will not have a breakout year, c'mon now, that was just summer league. He was playing against newbies and scraps from the NBDL, wait till he plays against the real pros, which is why they get 8th place. And you do not depend on Maggete and Stephon Jackson to win games for you, c'mon, Maggete is old, and Stephen Jackson is a great role player, not a guy you depend on as a star and try to build your team around. And Don Nelson does not what he is doing. He traded away probably his best shooter in Bellini and got crap in return, Devean George c'mon now, he is old. He is just trying to do the same thing he did in Dallas, it didn't not work then not gonna work now. Gatorheels you must be a warriors fan, you can't be serious, Randolph is gonna have a breakout year, and Curry is clutch, the guy is a rookie, from a poor poor draft class, he is gonna struggle for about 2 or 3 years then he hit his stride. )
9 Thunder (they do have a star in Durant, but they need Depth, and probably should fill their Center position better than Mullens. He is a project Center)
10 Nets
11 Heat(unless they do something to improve their team soon, like trade to get Booze, then it's back to the lottery for them)
12 Clippers(Griffen should really help. They will have one more in the lottery to add depth to their team, although if Telfair and Smith play good off the bench, they might not need the lottery but don't count on it though)
13 Bobcats(They are getting better every year, expect them to do the same once again)
14 Bulls(although the Pacers could go here too, help me out on this one, I really don't know, maybe it's the Suns but I doubt it.)
Now let's see what you all think

Don Nelson is a moron for a coach

For one, you do not try and build around Stephen Jackson, seriously c'mon now. He is a great role player but not someone you build around. He did good in Dallas, but that is because he did it right. Nash, Finely, and Nowitski were great. Great chemistry. But Stephen Jackson is not the player you build around. That's why the Warriors are always in the lottery. The five greatest coaches in the NBA are Jerry Sloan, Phil Jackson, Larry Brown, Stan Van Gundy, and Greg Popovich. George Karl, Rick Adelman, and Avery Johnson are way better then Donnie Nelson. And who can forget about that great Celtic coach way back when they had Bird and Perish, can't remember his name, too old for me to remember. Long time ago, but he will always be great. Don Nelson is probably after all these guys, but that was when he was in Dallas, He has screwed up the Warriors and should get fired. You do not trade away your best shooter in Bellinelli for Devean George, what was he thinking. Belinelli is so much better. He will do well for the Raptors, probably start over Derozan. The Raptors will be good next year. Calderon, Bellineli, Turkoglu, Bosh, and Bargnani. A great young nucleus that is built around Bosh, they should be #5 in the East right behind the Wizards possibly #4 if they have a good year.

Wasn't Avery Johnson only a

Wasn't Avery Johnson only a head coach for like 3 years or something like that? How can he be better than Nelson if he doesn't have a job right now? And correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Nelson beat the best team that Avery ever had in the first round of the playoffs, and set an NBA record in the process?

dwilljazz8- I'm sorry man

dwilljazz8- I'm sorry man but you are really sleeping on the Warriors. Maggette & Jackson aren't allstars by any means but they are very solid pros. Also Monta Ellis is good. Randolph is really talented...u should watch him play. Haha man Belinelli was not a factor for the Warriors. I have said this many times but Morrow is better than Belinelli. There was no room for Belinelli on the team so they basically gave him away. The Raptors paid George's salray for the Warriors so the move relieved to some cap space for Golden State. Not a bad move in my eyes. I see you have updated your rankings a little bit now but I still would like to hear why you think the Nets & Thunder are better than the Warriors. Also how are the Bulls in the lottery? Cmon now....Rose, Hinrich, Pargo, Salmons, Deng, Johnson, Tyrus, Gibson, Noah, Miller is clearly a playoff team. Also I don't think the Pistons are a playoff team but no way they are the 4th worst team in the league. They still have Rip & Prince. Not to mention Stuckey, Gordon, Villanueva & a few talented rookies. That isn't a terrible team. Detroit, Memphis, & Houston are all better than the Bucks.

Ok I'll give it to you for the Pistons but c'mon the Warriors

Ok maybe the pistons will not be the 4th worst team, but that's after Rip is traded and maybe Tayshaun. Both of them might not be staying because the Pistons are rebuilding and both of them are from the old squad, which is why I put them as the 4th worst team. The Warriors got lucky against the Mavs, because his team hit quite at a streak at the end of the year with everybody healthy, and I was really suprised that they swept the Mavs in the first round. I was hoping to see a good warriors team the next season, but they were even worse than before!! Which is why they aren't that good and are worse than the Nets and the Thunder. The Nets should be good with Devin Harris and Courtney Lee, and so should the Thunder with Durant, Harden, Westbrook, and Green. I'll admit I have not see Randolph play, and his Summer league stats were quite impressive, but how many times do I have to say this, THAT WAS JUST SUMMER LEAGUE, WAIT TILL HE PLAYS AGAINST THE REAL PROS. In Summer League you play against rookies, sophomores and scraps from the D-league. And besides he didn't do to well in his rookie season, so that should tell you something. But I'll be watching him come march 31 when he plays on ESPN so we will see who is right.

I am not taking into account

I am not taking into account Summer League. I have been talking about Morrow & Randolph & the Warriors as a whole way before summer league. People on here know how I feel about the Warriors. I will remember your name dwilljazz8......after the season you will regret saying the Nets & Thunder are better than the Warriors. It isn't even close Golden State makes the playoffs while the Thunder & Nets end up in the lottery.

you my friend are a total

hahahaha , call me a moron or a person for speaking the truth, dude got more guards on his roster than all the legit centers in the NBA combined haha,he trades Crawford and Bellinelli for total and complete crap, wont play rookies just because... even if they can help the team he still wont play them, top 5 my a$$ , Greg Popovich, Phil Jackson, Rick Adelman, Stan Van Gundy, and Jerry Sloan are ahead of him by a mile
