    Will NBA Fix Draft For Lakers?

    Yes, the draft is months away, but LA isn't making the playoffs this year. Will the NBA make sure that the Lakers get the #1 or a top #3 pick this summer?

    As a Laker fan, I would say that this is a GREAT idea. I will submit this proposal first things tomorrow.

    The next thing you will say is that the NBA will fix it so that the Clippers win the West this season and play Miami. You guys and your fixes are unbelieveable.

    Just a question. I don't subscribe to fixing of games. I'm bored and saw this question posted else where so I thought I would ask Sbr.

    Back to the original question:

    No, I don't think that there will be a fix in to get LAL a top 3 pick.

    While it makes sense, I don't believe that will happen.

    LAL needs a lot more than one draft pick to become a contender.

    Milwaukee will get #1. Lakers or Kings will get #2-3.

    There are no superstars in the upcoming draft, so no. Not even close.

    This. Lakers will bring in Love and Kyrie.

    This year is merely a tryout for who makes the bench squad.

    ...A guy can dream, right?

    If the NBA cares so much about helping the Lakers then why did they nix the Chris Paul trade?

    Is the lottery the 5 worst records?(cant remember)

    If so they are not even in the lottery so they pick 6 or 7. And even if they make it, I would say no, they won't "fix" it. Too much to lose if something like that went bad.

    You have to be a jackass to think the raiders and lakers are in the same boat.How many championships have the raiders won compared to the lakers. Can you even name 10 great raiders? Al Davis to Jerry Buss there is no comparison to these two

    absolutely. NBA is completely rigged pal.

    Remember the Charlotte Hornets drafted Kobe Bryant but the NBA was not about to let a super star play for a podunk farm town hillbilly city...

    Inaccurate statement.

    Bryant was not drafted until the 13th pick.

    So obviously, the NBA did not know he was going to be a superstar, or another team would have drafted him sooner.

    Todd Fuller and Vitaly Potapenko were drafted before Bryant.

    Everything in sports is rigged.

    Congratulations to the Miami Heat for winning the #1 draft pick in the 2021 draft.

    It's going to happen. Just watch. And then remember I predicted it.

    i was jk but my point is superstars will only play for big market teams.

    Kevin Durant is a very rare situation.

    he happens to not really care about fame and he is not a thug like kobe and lebron.

    This whole "next LeBron" bullshit is just that. Watch a game. He's a good player, but nowhere near NBA star quality right now.

    Your points are wrong. The NBA is not completely rigged and the NBA did not know that Bryant was going to be a superstar.

    He was traded before he ever played a game.

    Please educate me on how the NBA KNEW Kobe was going to be a superstar ahead of the 12 teams that didn't draft him?

    And, you are inferring that the NBA forced Charlotte to trade him to LA.

    Do you REALLY believe this?????
