#2, please.

Detroit hasn't picked in the top 5 since 1990: their first picks since then have come at 49, 35, 21, 32, 30, 27, 41, 19, 97, 64, 58, 62, 29, 120, 25, 49, 26, 26, 23, 22, 22 and 10. A lot of different factors have contributed to that, but tanking and fostering a losing culture isn't one of them.

GMJN has been fighting with one hand tied behind his back financially the last few years, but has made some shrewd signings and trades ... spend to the cap (basically add two Parise-and-Suter sized free agents) and this thing goes a LONG way towards being legit contenders.
