    For those wondering, the coin flips are done a few days after the season ends. We should know the results this weekend of any tie breakers.

    I seem to remember the coin flips being the day after the season ended last year, like tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon.

    Who flips the coin? What kind of coin is used? Who gets to call it? Is it a "catch and flip"? Does it hit the ground? And if so what happens in the case of a "leaner"? Is it a single flip or a best of?

    So many questions, so much intrigue.

    just glad they don't drag it out. If Portland beats NO , looks like a coin flip between NO and Dallas. Our best case scenario is 8 and 9 going into the lotto.

    Or 5 and 9 should we finally luck into the top 3 in time for Vlade to wear the pick swap on national TV. Higher positioning nonetheless

    Haha the one time we move up in the draft in years, we actually move back.

    the best outcome for us would be:
    1. winning lotto into the #3 spot.....which also bumps the Fakers out of a draft pick :D
    2. we then "suffer" the "humiliation" of a pick swap between 3 and 5 (only)
    3. we leave the draft with picks 5 and 9

    or better yet, but virtually impossible:
    1. we win the 2nd spot, philly wins the 1st spot, Fakers get bumped.....we get 2 and 9!
    is this possible? what are the odds? :eek:

    Well I'm disappointed Portland didn't pull the win, however, if you had told me after the Cousins trade that the NO pick could be as high as 10 I would have been surprised. They pretty much gave up resting Cuz And Davis several games ago.

    Color me surprised that Dallas actually won, considering how hard they've worked at tanking lately -- even trying to get Tony Romo playing time. I'll gladly take that gift. That one spot could be a big deal.

    It's actually okay that N.O. won. There would have been a coin flip and there was a 50/50 chance they would have wound up at #10 anyways.

    Plus, if N.O. tied for 9/10, N.O. would have got more ping pong balls for the lotto.

    So, 8 and 10 is good for me. :)

    There odds would have improved by about .3%. But the differnce between 9 and 10 could be getting frank ntilikina or lauri markkanen.
  14. ockingsfan

    ockingsfan Well-Known Member

    The odds would had changed from 4% to 5.05% chance of N.O. getting in the top 3.

    And it would be 50/50 that the pick would had stayed at #10 anyways.

    It is what it is, can't change the results now. Don't forget we came into last night tied for 8/9 and N.O. was solidly at #10 (no one would had thought Dallas would win), so we came out of the night with lone possession of 8 and 10, could had been a lot worse. :)

    That can be easily solved by picking Ntilikina at #8 and someone else at #10.

    Dallas shouldn't be looking for a SF after signing Barnes last year to a max deal anyways and Dallas tanked so hard down the stretch, I don't think they would trade their pick.

    Where you getting your odds? I see #9 at 1.7% and #10 at 1.1%. If they tie they then both teams get the same odds so you average it. There maybe 1 number combo left over that I believe the coin flip winner gets.

    So your going to possibly pass on Tatum or Isaac?

    Number 9 pick has a 6.1% chance at top 3 and Number 10 has a 4% chance at top 3.

    If they tie 9/10, they add up the ping pong balls and divide by 2, therefore 5.05% of us losing the N.O. pick.

    There is a 50/50 chance of getting #9 or #10 with the coin flip, so 50 % chance we get #10 anyways and an increased risk (from 4% to 5.05%) of losing the N.O. pick all together.

    No, but like I said, you would draft according to who is drafting at #9, between your #8 and #10 pick.

    Since Dallas is picking at #9, and they don't need a small forward, but they do need a point guard, I would draft PG with the #8 pick and I would draft the SF at #10.

    I have a feeling that Dallas may like Marrkaren at #9.

    I can see NY going Issac just as an FU to Carmelo. Doubt they want any of the PG's because Phil Jackson only likes 3 and D PG's anyway.

    Kings may have their pick of Ntililikina and Smith. I like Ntililikina long term though Smith will probably make us look stupid for the first couple of years.

    Sorry I did not see this and posted it under another thread. Anyways lucky Wolves. They paid a price several years back for Mchales antics but they sure have had their way with the lottery the last few years.
    I also wonder how might Wolves before Knicks might effect the draft outcome.

    Whats the bet that Kings either win the lottery and swap with Philly because #KANGZ

    That would still improve their draft position.

    Hell no, Knicks are going to take point guard 100 %.

    So would you rather have pick #8 or pick #4? Seem pretty straightforward to me! :D
  29. Čarolija

    Čarolija Well-Known Member

    The question is would you rather a top 3 pick or top 4?!

    If Kings do get into the top 3 and need to swap, you just watch the poopoostorm that will create nationally. You think Kings have been copping it from everywhere latetly. It nothing to what it will be like. And then watch Vivek jump at shadows again and sink the ship AGAIN!

    Since when we worry about poopoostorm, as if it is not constantly on the Kings :D

    Right now, 4th pick would be worth it.
