    Big night. Celtics come in with the best odds.

    It should happen around 9 i think or so.

    Lakers are in a fascinating position. If they don't get a top 3 pick in the lottery they lose it AND next year's pick. They have the 2nd most number of lottery balls, so them getting a top 3 pick shouldn't be unusual, though conspiracy theorists will have their say. And of course one of the top picks has his father openly campaigning to have the Lakers get his kid.

    I really hope the Lakers miss out. It'd be delicious.

    Patriots, greatest comeback of all time. Bruins make playoffs. Celtics make final four and get #1 overall pick. So far so good the last few months. Would have been nice for Bruins to make final 8 though.

    So who do they take?


    Edit to note that I know very little about BB and like Hockey watch it during the playoffs or a big game during the season.

    As an interesting aside, that's not actually how it works.

    Believe it or not, there are only 14 balls in the hopper!

    What actually happens is that there are 1,001 distinct ways of pulling four balls out of the hopper. So one of them (11–12–13–14) gets thrown out, and the other 1,000 are assigned to the non-playoff teams. That means, for example, the Celtics had 25.0% or 250 of the 1,000 combinations.

    trade the pick! The baggage with Ball is too much and Fultz won like 9 total games against garbage teams last year which i think is an extremely underrated red flag. Not to mention all we do is draft guards and we need to get bigger

    I say trade for a legit rim protector, sign hayward and try to keep bradley, call it an offseason

    EDIT: Nvm keep the pick!

    Trading the pick for someone like Butler of George would be a mistake that would haunt this franchise forever. You make the pick and its Fultz.

    I'm in the minority here, but i take Ball. His game is suited to the NBA and he makes players around him better. I think his vision and basketball IQ make him to good to pass up.

    Either way if we take Fultz or Ball, the question is what do we do with Thomas.
