Oh really? Is number 1 a better draft pick than number 2? Thanks for clearing that up. You missed the point. For the Bobcats its not about 1 or 2 because you can't control that. Its about putting yourself in the best position to get the best asset you can, and at this point winning does nothing but hurt your chances.
So as far as the OP is concerned... the answer is no we won't be upset if we don't get number 1. Is it best sure. Is it devastating no. Collect valuable assets... its the only realistic goal you can have.
Oden was a better prospect than KD. Nothing is ever a sure thing. Including Davis. Was he the consensus best prospect last year, yes. Was he/is he a sure thing... nope, no more than MKG was at 2. You put yourself in the best situation possible, thats our only goal.
