NBA gave these bums another 1st overall pick. What a joke.

Top three is still good. Sounds like we still wind up with Parker or Wiggins. If available, would Smart be the choice at 10?

Not sure he goes that far.

I'm confused on how Embiid is going to go Top 2. I haven't seen many people like him at all. I don't think he goes to #3 for the Sixers either, if Wiggins/Parker go, I think they go Exum/Randall.

Embiid's potential is crazy. The only thing holding him back from being the ironclad #1 pick is his back (no pun intended) If he checks out okay with Cleveland's medical staff, they have to pick him. But they are Cleveland

Well that's positive, because the Sixers need Wiggins/Parker, more Wiggins in my eyes.

How about a combo of Embid/Smart? What would that lineup look like?

Embid at C, Noel at PF? Smart and MCW in the back court?

Something like that?

I thought that too, but I've heard people say that Noel can't play forward, so basically you'd have two centers. Its starting to look like Embiid may go #1 to CLE, Wiggins will probably go to MIL. Leaving Parker to PHI, which isn't the worst case I guess.

How awful do you have to be at drafting/building a franchise to have 2 #1 picks in 3 years and still blow? If Cleveland sucks after this pick in 2 or 3 years, that team needs to be relocated to the Sun.

Well in their defense, they only had like a 1% chance in 2 of those years. They weren't god awful this year, they certainly weren't Bucks/Sixers awful.

I guess what I mean is how do you not even make the playoffs in the weak ass East as an 8 seed?

I just really want the Sixers to get a difference maker this year. I don't want this to be another Evan Turner type situation, take him at 2 overall and the guy that had some questionmarks behind him ends up becoming the better player.
