Can someone explain what they meant when they announced Charlotte's pick, they said that it meant the Bulls were in the top 3? How'd that work?

Anyone else notice that when they were going through the representatives of each team, the lady got the name wrong of the Bulls guy...thats probably how he won :cry:

Oh well, 6th pick is better than nothing. Now onto discuss who we can get...


only the top 3 picks are determined by ping pong balls. after that it goes by worst record.
so if a team skips a spot, it means they moved up.

i was fuckin pissed when i saw that because i had a feeling they'd win it. i don tknow how

lol thanks for the optimism :)

Good points watcher. Let's be confident guys, at least Isiah is gone and we have a good coach. We can still get Bayless, Augustin, etc.

Dammit David Stern. I wouldve given you a tiny bit of more respect if you rigged this for us but no. Now I hate you even more, which I thought wasnt possible. Fuck you David Stern, you suck at life.

I'm more pissed at Isiah for giving the Bulls our previous two lottery picks. Think about it guys, we had three lottery picks in the past few years, this one didn't get "stolen" from us, the first two in the fatty Curry deal did.

Ok, time to move on. It is what it is. So who is going to be around when we pick?

1. Rose
2. Beasley
3.?
4.?
5.?
6.?

1. Chicago pick Rose

2. Miami pick Beasley

3. Minnesota pick Mayo

4. Seattle pick Lopez

5. Memphis pick Love

6. Knicks pick Bayless

Considering their current rosters, that's how I think it will go. Hinrich's now available if we don't get Bayless, Mayo or another PG. Love's the most logical fit for the Grizzlies but they defy logic.

we need to pull ourselves together and not panic.....we're six in a draft that's in favor of the first 10 teams (if you ask me) .....we've been having surprising luck so far with the acquisition of D'Antoni and Walsh.....there's a lot of players that might be available at 6 for us....we should be grateful that this year we have a lottery period....it's not the end of the world....and certainly not the end of the season either....we have an intelligent Walsh at the helm this year as oppose to a trigger happy Isiah....
