Yeah, I know. I'm a pessimistic.

I'll give you one thing, miggy: you're optimistic as hell. From tank scenarios to trade scenarios, both fantasy trades and Warrior trades. Not tryna dog you or anything, but I'm always prepared for the worse. At least when it comes to the Warriors (Raiders too).

I'm prepared for the worst because I'm a Warriors fan, always seeing the worst it seems.

The aim is to get better and to think better. That does wonders and many times results in a better situation

If we can run the table, we should be able to get into the top 7 or possibly 6th. If we can get into 6th, it would take a major stroke of bad luck (roughly 4% chance) to slip two spots in the lottery and lose our pick.

Mate, look at NO win the last few games. Best case scenario is that we get to 3rd spot. NO are only 4.5 games ahead

Detroit has 6 games left.
Gsw have 6 games.
Toronto have 4.
NJ have 4.

We are all tied up in the W colomn.
Assuming we win 1 more game, it will be very hard for us to get into 7th seed. We would have to lose out. Last 3 games of season will be BIG. NBA where Tanking happens.

Some of those east teams play each other so looks like we're in. God bless, only when the season has ended ofcourse.

Detroit and Cleveland play tonight, probably should root for Detroit since they have 22 wins?

Pick Detroit to make it safer for us, but Cleveland to be ambitous and want the 4th or 5th pick :)

Warriors aren't winning anything again this season it looks with what we have out on the court :D

Dang it's close! 4 teams with 22 wins... Almost like a tight race for the 8th seed, except it's the exact opposite lol! This is actually my first time ever cheering for a team to tank. I'm not a fan of tanking, but that pick is huge.

It's funny, but this tank watch is a little exciting because of the closeness. I'm sure I'm not the only ones who's keeping a close eye on detroit, cleveland, toronto, and new jersey games. Not to mention NO's 4 game winning streak! If things go our way, we might be able to snag the 5th pick.

It is definitely something that brings at least some amount of fun to us, as fans. I mean, I don't like for my team to tank, but this is a situation where we don't win anything by winning, cause we are out of PO race, and we gain a lot if we get this draft pick.

It's not like we were cheering for our team to lose all season, it's just now...and these 5-10 game won't mean anything in the end, to our overall record.

NO's Kaman is out for the last five games of their season... might as well cross them off the list.
Was a long shot as they would have to win 3 of their last five, including the game they play us.

Maybe we can still get 4th :)

If NO could also pass us that'd make us 3rd worst team :shock:
Wouldn't that have been unlikely and unforeseen two weeks ago :D

Wednesday's Tank Related Games:
Philadelphia @ Cleveland
Toronto @ Miami
New York @ New Jersey
San Antonio @ Sacramento
LA Lakers @ Golden State

New Jersey plays Toronto the last game of the year, so one of them at worst has to finish 23 wins. If we lose out, we can go into the lottery no higher than 7th.
