All of the teams deserve the No. 1 pick -- EXCEPT the Golden State Warriors, whose abject and naked tanking should never be rewarded. The Warriors were capable of beating current 2012 Western Conference playoff teams regularly, but could not climb above a certain high water mark -- around the No. 10 or No. 9 rank. Even after the All-Star break they were within the Western mix, and in better position than the Jazz (who did make the playoffs). But instead of fighting they traded for injured players, sat their best players, and even goaltended last-second shots by the opposition to ensure losses. Their dishonorable, cowardly actions go against everything fairness, sport and competition stands for. All this tanking because they did not want to live up to the terms stipulated in a previous trade -- where an honest effort at winning by 'State would have meant another team got their pick this year. The Warriors did not give their team, their players or their fans a fair effort this past season. Their cheating should not be rewarded with lottery luck.

Who deserves the #1 pick? From our good friends at SLC Dunk. I'm personally very tired of this BS. Steph Curry was injured. Monta Ellis was not leading us anywhere with Steph out. We had no way of getting a center otherwise. I'm sorry long term logic is beyond the people of SLC Dunk.
