Most Suns fans think the NBA's lottery system is rigged

If the Celtics plan to keep the pick, however, that could certainly change things. It would likely take something equivalent to a number one pick to woo either of those teams into trading their best players, so suddenly the idea that the Celtics could indeed move that pick to capitalize on a "win-now" window becomes a very real possibility.

Steph Curry, Kevin Durant & Draymond Green Named to All NBA Team

I think Klay's one of our top three guys. "How he could be left out, I don't really understand it". "And to not be on an All-NBA team, I think that's pretty insane".

I'm more than likely to use that more as a cover bet for the remainder of my picks however, and I like the widely available 11/4 (3.75) available on Chelsea to win and both to score.
