    How so? GSW won the higher pick on a coin toss (this was the tie breaker). That higher pick slot continues to the 2nd round. NBA.com confirms this in their draft order list.
    Look again at the draft order on nba.com and you will see that Toronto does indeed have the 37th pick. They only listed Golden State at 37th until after the results of the draft lottery. If Toronto moved ahead of Golden State in the Lottery then Toronto would have stayed at 38.

    ^ Raptors have a 0.0001% chance of ending up 11th. If we ever drop to that, then you know it has to be rigged and the NBA hates us

    Jay breaks it down pretty well. Some visuals for you visual learners; such as myself.

    they won't trade for the sake of trading. But a lot of teams will want a top ten pick in this draft. It will be a seller's market for that draft pick.
    That's an interesting thought. We've been so focussed on the Raptors going after a top-5 talent, but that's a whole other angle to consider, especially if the Raps see a player or two they like who are likely to still be available further down. There's a couple teams that have multiple mid-1st round picks (Houston and Boston are two, I believe)... curious to think if the Raps might flip their #8-11 pick for 2 lower picks, while possibly also either picking up a minor asset or unloading some salary...

    There will be plenty of players available in the 8-10 range who would immediately upgrade our roster next year. Unless we're acquiring a bona fide star (e.g Rudy Gay), trading the pick for the sake of trading it makes little sense to me.

    unless this pick is 1,2 or 3 it is getting traded. I will eat a big bowl of shit salad if this doesn't happen

    I have a good feeling about the draft this year, definitely, because unless BC has a Babcock Spasm, we will get a solid player (assuming we don't trade the pick).

    Even guys like Waiters or Marshall will be decent to good players in the league....As far as lucky charm? BC should go...he's 1 for 1

    The only way I'd be an old timer is if people on average live for 30 years, actually make that closer to 25.

    I guess YOLO is a new acronym, but, "you only live once" is an old ass saying.

    As you might be able to tell, I'm not a big "hip hop" fan. "rock" is more my poison. The only Drake I'm a fan of is Nathan.

    Anyways, not sure the draft lottery is worth a YOLO reference. But, w/e. I like that the NHL has it before the playoffs.

    1.a) I agree that the Raps mascot should represent... in fact all of the lottery teams should be represented by their mascots and instead of having lotto balls, have the mascots face off in a royal rumble to determine the top picks (I've killed two birds with one stone - made the draft lottery much more entertaining and eliminated the problem of tanking).
    1.b) If we can't have the mascot, I say Anthony Davis should represent the Raps
    2.a) If it's a royal rumble, as I suggested, I would recommend a tank as a lucky charm (forgive the pun)
    2.b) Anthony Davis should wear a Raps jersey for a lucky charm.
    3) Yeah, I don't think we will end up with Rafael Araujo this time... even with the 9th, 10th, or 11th pick
    4) Absolutely
    Well in that case... we should have GSP suit up in the Raptor's costume.
