Yeah, I think that if we failed to make the playoffs, but got a young star with the first overall pick, we'd be happier than failing the playoffs and getting the 13th overall pick or even making the playoffs and getting knocked out of the first round, then winding up with the #20 overall selection. Either way you are disappointed, but with the first overall pick, you at least have hope for the future.
