Three wins in a row.... not good.
hypothetically if they win the lottery this year deron might re-sign and play up to his potential the whole season, and in the east they'd likely make the playoffs next year. so yeah even if they finish 9th worst this year no reason to feel bad about it. take the pick and run.
If we do get Williams, and are able to re-sign Batum, I wonder if the Blazers would package their picks to try and move up in the draft, or if they'll go for quantity.
I'm more worried about them hovering around the pick they have, Stern will probably allow them to "win" the lottery like the Blazers did when they were supposed to get the sixth or seventh pick in 2007.
These lotto balls are monitored by a representative that works for the lotto teams. It would be really hard for them to fix any lotto results.
I think we would be better off getting NJ's pick around #8 this year than wait until next year:
1) This years draft class is very strong
2) NJ could very well be better next year, giving us a worse pick in a weaker draft
3) We start improving quicker the sooner we get our pick ($1 today is worth more than $1 tomorrow)
The NY Knicks envelope was kept in a freezer until lottery time then put in the machine. They were told to pick the cold envelope.

FUCK, New Jersey made top 3!
The Nets have a fairly tough schedule for the rest if the season. There's 3 easy wins (Cavs, Wiz & Raps) but the rest aren't easy.

Notice the folded corner on the card Stern picks...
Great spin on things
I might be crazy but if we get the #1 and #4 picks I would entertaine the idea of trading #1 for Wall and then draft Drummond of Cody Zeller.
The sad thing is that Davis looks primed to have knee trouble.
