only thing i dont like about tanking is the unpredictability of where the lottery balls land, it might not even matter how shitty we are by the end, the fact is we might get fucked over....

look at last draft, didnt cleveland win with clippers pick, and they were like what 11-12th worst in league? or even that horrific celtics year in 06-07 which only landed them 5th overall pick. of course they used that to get ray ray and then assembled the big three but the point is its a lot to bank on..everything must go right, and even if u get 1st overall pick, who's to say the guy we get will be a game changer? nobody knows for sure...

we're in a tough situation because we have no choice to tank at this point. best route to improve is free agency but no players will want to come to toronto until we have a good team. with the lack of trade pieces we have, we prob wont be able to get a game-changer type player in return unless BC pulls some magic. and by doing that, we would prob be forced the thin out our depth even more (which is already disgustingly thin). therefore, only way we can drastically improve is through draft..

just thinking about this makes me cringe. lets just say it could be a long time before we are competitive again
