Official Draft Rage Page!
Are you kidding me???? 6th???? What???? I don't remember what day the draft lottery was, but I remember it was at 5pm because My DVR was broken and I had to race home from work to find out where we were picking. Before I looked it up I asked my girlfriend, who knows virtually nothing about the NBA, jokingly quipped that we would pick 6th. I told her if that was the case how disastrous that would be, in all of the varied ways that would screw the Ws. All the while, I didn't even consider this nightmare as a possibility. Those were much happier times.
In the time since then I have barely been able to stomach five minutes of playoff ball a night before I want to cry or break something. Half of my workplace conversation is gone because the thought of the Ws or the NBA makes me literally want to vomit. After work I had to find new video games to play because my 2k10 Ws team doesn't need a "Full 2010 Draft class, no generic players" if we're picking some no-name goon. As far as the internet goes, I didn't even browse it until today. 90% of my time is spent on GSOM and ESPN insider NBA rumors. Oh but wait, then there are the 1,000+ hours I've logged scouring the web for videos and info on the top five players coming out this year. My god, if only I'd known!
Now, having mustered the courage to return to my beloved GSOM, I find nothing but calm, reasonable analysis about what to do with the 6th pick. Are you kidding me!? What is wrong with you people? Where is the outrage? Where is the anger spiraling into the depths of despair? I feel worse about this season than _any_ season since the lockout year, when I began my masochistic infatuation with this team. I've lived through Murphy, Dunleavy, Diogu, O'bryant and so many other terrible picks. The list goes on forever. This year, however, is the absolute worst. To be given so much hope in the form of a terrible record and impending new ownership, it's hard to imagine things going much worse than getting screwed out of the top 5 picks in a 3-5 player draft. AAAAAAAGHHGHGHHHHH!!!!!!! Feel free to comment with your own feelings of total defeat. If, however, you decide to be optimistic and/or reasonable and post something about our options going forward, know that I will come at you with the most unbridled pessimism this forum will allow!
