Let's be honest, we're not bad enough to tank right now and were not good enough to make a deep playoff run. Masai promised that we would not be caught in the middle and that's exactly where we are. It's clear the only way we have a chance of tanking is a KL injury or trade and even then we may still NOT get a top 7 pick (guys there are a lot of bad teams out there). It is not so clear if somehow we keep this core (including KL) together for a few more years, that it may also just lead to us being a perpetual 7-10 seed in the east and who wants more of that. Maybe it's time like the Grantland article suggest we become buyers (with the right piece we are no worst than ATL or WASH) and be the 3rd or 4th seed this year and see what happens. The problem with that is that when the underachievers (BK,NY,CLE) find a way to get better and those who truly suck are developing their 2014 draft stud, how are we going to keep up?? how do we get better???. In this crappy situation I'm gonna have to roll with Herm Edwards.....why do you play the game??? "YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!!!" (but not Affalo for Ross)
