Another win imo.

Barbosa will be back, along with Bayless hopefully.

He should be fired in 4 months either way.

Not Fire, but put back to assistant coach. Is that possible?
The players love him.

I think we can get a win here. But Bargnani needs to keep Bogut in check. Maybe put Dorsey on him. See if that scares bogut.

i dont get why people dont realize the importance of getting a high draft pick

have you people seen the talent (or lack there-of) that we bring in during the off-season?? lol

only way this team gets better is through a terrible season, and drafting a high impact player, this years draft class isnt overly deep either so we need to be a top 3 worst team or just get lucky at the lottery

What do you propose, the players to lose on purpose? Once you lose on purpose, you will never win. I don't give a shit about a high draft pick if they play hard. One draft pick isn't going to make this team a top contender, stop blowing smoke.

Anyone who thinks Tanknation is a good thing.. They need thier head checked. They are putting a lot of faith in a crappy draft. As well as teaching these young players... Hey your not good enough to win games. So we need better players than you. Can you help us get better players by blowing games for us. Who cares what it does to the morale or souls of these players.

Tanknation is for Pussies

We do need better players, but one is not going to be enough. Colangelo has shown himself to be a mediocre draft GM, his strength is really in picking up good players later on in the lotter and finding diamonds in the rough.

While it's good to get a high pick, losing on purpose is just dumb. Nobody wants to play for a team that's known for giving up. We need to create a culture of hard work, effort, and energy. If all our players play hard and lose, it's one thing. But if everyone is in on the whole 'lose to win in the future' tactic, it's completely different. No one is going to come to play for us, and we will be stuck at the bottom for years.

We have a lot of young talent already; we need them to stay here once they develop, and have them committed to winning, not tanking. A good draft pick will help our situation, for sure, but he's not going to fix all of the (many) problems on this team.

Couldn't agree with you more. I'm not sure why people are so against tanking. Like get real, we njust came off a 13 game losing streak? Does anyone here think we're going to the playoffs? At this point, a win will just result in a lower DP.

And those of you who think relying on the draft is stupid, then wtf do you suggest? Overpaying through free-agency to aquire someone who will barely make us a 500. team?

Create a SOLID core and build around it. We don't have that 'guy' yet and he wont be attained through free-agency.

One guy won't solve everything. Will getting one guy in the draft make Bargs better at rebounding? Will he help Amir and his foul troubles? Will he help Wright create his own shot? I agree with some that tanking is not the way.
