Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I broke down a reader draft board after having readers rank their lottery preferences.
You’re on the clock now.
Not to make an actual pick. Short of maybe the Sacramento Kings, no team is going to put that kind of faith in the wisdom — or fanaticism — of crowds. But you’ve put your own rankings out there, and five or six years from now, when we know how the players in question have turned out, I’m digging up the spreadsheet and reminding you just how bad your takes were.
I kid. Please nobody find my live blog of the 2008 NBA Draft. Nobody should have their takes exposed from that far back. I do, however, retain the right to be like “see, I told you Deuce McBride would turn a two-way contract into an NBA gig.” I digress.
