      And even though they're downplaying it, there is still talk of Hoiberg as a possible replacement. You just can't make this **** up.

        Blackhawks got third pick in NHL draft with a 3% chance for it so with a 12.5% chance maybe the Bulls can get the #`1 pick, though I would settle for #2.

          Double doink is bad in football, but quadruple doink is good in basketball.

            New Orleans wins the Zion Williamson Sweepstakes. Memphis will pick #2, NY Knicks third and the Lakers 4th.

            For the 3rd straight year, the Bulls will pick 7th.

            Cleveland and Phoenix fell from the top 3, and only the Knicks stayed in the top 4. In fact, none of the bottom-feeder teams got the reverse-order pick they "earned" with their terrible seasons.

              While in a way, it's nice that tanking didn't pay and I think that's good for sports in general since I hate tanking, but it does suck that we ended up with the worst possible result that we could.
              Probably destined for more mediocrity. Maybe if they stay healthy they can attain a first round elimination in the playoffs.

                Actually, they could have dropped to 8th. So it could be worse...

                  Oh that makes me feel so much better

                  upon further review are you sure

                  After the first three picks are decided, the remaining draft ordered is decided based off what each team's lottery odds were.
                  So we were fourth and after 3 were decided then they went in order so 7th should have been the worst

                    Upon further review, I'm totally sure. Chicago had a 2.2% chance of getting the 8th pick.

                    Here's a link to the math. You're welcome.

                      That doesn't jive with the article that I found (and quoted above) which said only three were selected but 4 makes more sense with the display they were showing but I was looking for something like what your posted so I'll go with it.
                      Thnx

                        NBA changed the rules this year.

                          The league may have succeeded in nudging people away from season-long tanking. The bottom 6 teams all dropped to worse draft positions.

                          Standings vs Draft Position
                          1 - NY Knicks - 3rd
                          2 - Cleveland - 5th
                          3 - Phoenix - 6th
                          4 - Chicago - 7th
                          5 - Atlanta - 8th
                          6 - Washington - 9th
                          7 - New Orleans - 1st

                          Biggest movers: New Orleans 7>>1, obviously. Memphis moved from 8th to 2nd; Lakers went from 11th to 4th.
