    We all know the Celtics are going to throw down a 360 tomahawk dunk right in math's grill tonight and win a top 4 pick.

    But since they can't be #1, who do you want to win it?

    The Lakers.

    And they try to trade the pick for for Anthony Davis, by the Pelicans hate them and tell them to get fucked.

    So they trade it to Boston in a sign and trade for Kyrie.

    Cavs or Suns.....

    I like seeing the Knicks fans in misery.

    I think I want Minny to win it.

    My more realistic hope is that Phoenix wins and then Zion is an epic bust.

    Chaos option: New Orleans.

    Worst case scenarios: Memphis, LA, NY

    Well, the Avengers only had a 1 in 14,000,605 chance and they got it done. So, yes, I'm saying there's a chance.

    Atlanta - Trae throwing alley-oops to Zion would be a fun combo for the next decade.

    Worst case scenario is Philly getting #1, bumping Memphis to #9. Best case scenario is Celtics getting #2-4 and Memphis moving up to 2-4. Going in expecting Memphis pick to convey at 9.

    Why would we want Memphis in the top 4? I want them right at 8. Adding a top 4 pick to their team is going to hurt the pick next year. I'd rather just take it at #9 this year before it becomes another Sac pick.

    Speaking of which...if that Sac logo isn't there at #14, it's heart attack time.

    If you want the Celtics to pick at 2 or 3 and don't want the Memphis pick to convey yet, it's the only way that can happen.

    The way I look at it is, if the Celtics get #2 (or 3 or 4) that's going to New Orleans in an AD deal. At that point, adding the #9 pick to what will otherwise be a veteran team is not a bad thing, and we no longer need to keep powder dry for a trade.

    I’d be all over getting the #9 pick if Garland falls to 9.

    25 sims:

    12 Times the Memphis pick conveyed at #9 or 10
    3 Times the Celtics landed #2-4
    1 Time Philly got #1
    1 Time Celtics and Memphis were in the top 4.

    The Celtics should have sent you to the lottery.

    I'd also like Atlanta. Best fit of playing style and market for Zion.

    The Knicks are getting Zion. This is the beginning of the rebirth of that franchise.

    So....if each try was a total of 2 seconds, it took you just over 23 days of trying 24 hours a day to get this. You may wish to consider getting a different hobby.

    Yet there's an article in another thread that said if the Knicks get the #1 and sign Durant, the PG they may sign is....Rozier.

    It's always the least interesting team that wins these things, so my money is on Chicago or Charlotte.

    Yes.

    Either way, it's not assuming Kyrie, which in theory they could still afford, no?

    Agree with this. Need teams with an established 5s to win the Zion lottery (so they don't turn him into AD) so Wolves and Suns fit. Cavs also because they are in a complete rebuild.

    Along w/ Memphis, NYK, Lakers I'd add Dallas as a worse case because I think they would turn Zion into AD.

    Any team but the Knicks.
    I ran 10 sims. Celts got the 14 pick 10 times; got the 9 & 14 once.

    I promise not to watch in case I’m the jinx.

    I'll throw in the Bulls just because the Hawks were mentioned already. Lauri, Carter and Williamson is quite the big man rotation.

    58 tries to get Boston to 3.. the same time, the Lakers were 4th and the Wolves were 2nd. Chicago was 1st. Wow. The Lakers won the lottery 3 other times and finished 2nd once. Philly won the 1st overall once.

    I just ran 25. I pulled the 2 and the 3 once each, but the Memphis pick conveyed only 10 times.

    This is completely meaningless.

    Talking about the results of the sims you ran is about as interesting to others as talking about your fantasy team.

    For some actual useful information: The live show with lottery results is at 8:30pm tonight, so we'll know the results middle of the 1st period for the Bruins.
