must lose game
If we win (and NO loses) we are coin toss away to lose at least one pick with 17.3% probability!
That is a real chance!
let kids go to the beach with Joerger, and allow KK, Temple, Tolliver, Afflalo, Lawson, Collison, Evans and Gallaway to close the season (after the prep talk by Vlade of course)
So if we do lose what do our percentages look like?
And this is a must win for the Clips, right? Plus they're going to be PISSED about last time. I can see Paul single-handedly willing them to a win with actual skill and plays, not flopping and crying like usual.
The Kings' Very Last Game!
Think you know how it ends?

Just follow the link to the thread, and post the exact game result.
List of all predictors in order of appearance:
And to you, prediction rookies...
It's never too late to start...
Was ambivalent about the whole thing but now I kinda want the Kings to blow out the Clippers just to leave a bad taste in the mouth of everyone calling for a full-on tank job all offseason.
4% that we lose Pels pick and miniscule chance (0.1%) that we lose pick due to two teams jumping ahead of us.
Otherwise, coin toss for 8-9
nose, spite, face...
This is like wanting for Kings to lose their pick to leave a bad taste in the mouth of everyone who was ignoring danger of not-tanking (while everyone around us tanked).
I honestly don't care either way.
Okay, I can live with those odds. Im all aboard the tank train tonight. Moreso than usual.
Let there be no doubt, no room for misfire - BOOM!
I hope the Kings win just to hurt the Clippers and leave the Staples crowd angry and frustrated.
It would leave a lot of the fanbase frustrated to open up the percentages of losing our picks
For me let's see the young players compete and play well
As much as this management/coaching staff have turned their heads at the prospect of the picks I fully expect a complete tank lineup tonigt
Carmichael DaveVerified account@CarmichaelDave 36m36 minutes ago
Collison, Koufos, Lawson, Temple, and Tolliver all out tonight
Haha, no PG!
This tank just got real!
If the Clippers lose they move all the way down from the 4 seed to the 5 seed. I think they'll survive. I'm not in the mood to argue about this though. It's an ideological issue for me not a personal one and I've more than said enough to get my point of view across already. I'll be at the game and I plan to have a fun time no matter what happens. Just waiting for this season to be over at this point.... I'm still not sure how we manage to take so many different circuitous paths that always end up in the same place, but here we are. In the long run I think the story of the Sacramento Kings could sit comfortably on the same shelf as any Samuel Beckett masterpiece.
That's pretty similar to the players they held out in the win against the Mavericks. I think the only difference was Afflalo was held out instead of Temple.
And, in my view, those guys are the heart of our chance to win. In other words we can't tank any better than that. Go Kings and let the chips fall wherever they may. We will have a first round pick and maybe even a couple of second picks. We shall overcome. Young-en', kick ass!
I would rather see veterans line up with all kids out than the other way around.
Vets know how to lose and even with most of them heading to the free agency this loss will not hurt them at all because they are known quantities.
Playing kids brings not only problem that you do not want to teach them how to lose, but also unpredictability that some of them can go off this game and win it.
Ben McLemore III makes perfect sense for mission at hand.
Utah is looking good today against SA, so if that keeps up the Clips have no choice but to play for the win.
Frankly, after the chokejob/comeback (depending on your point of view), I would have been surprised if they didn't play to win, regardless
Looks like Dallas is going to win.
Great news.....MAVS WIN! Now we lose tonight and Pelicans lose in POR, then they coin flip with Mavs....we can end up with 8th and 9th pick....not bad!
Don't play spoiler don't play spoiler don't play spoiler.
Skal probably can't guard DJ.
Incoming 50 point Afflalo game to win us the game!
Don't forget McBen chipping in 35.
Of course! How could I forgot Ben "Last game of the season MVP" Mclemore!
I'm kind of glad to see the young guys making the Clips work I'd like to see the Clippers starters have to play the whole game. I wouldn't want to see any kind of career injury or anything but if their guys leave the court sore what the heck
