I would rather trade for other teams pick, so we can cheer for raps to win.

I made this thread a week or two ago and none of you would have any of it. Turns out I was right!

Hey......1 year ago we were undefeated at the end of November Hard to believe we are talking about tanking already. There are 5 or 6 teams with 3 or less wins

You guys know full well that the second this team declares an official/unofficial tank, they will start winning like crazy!

If we did finish dead last, the chances that pick remains in the top 3 is approx 65%, which isn't that bad. But herein lies the problem: We're not bad enough to be the worst. Additionally, if we can't pick up wins against teams like Detroit and close out games in the 4th quarter time and time again we don't deserve to make it to the playoffs. Our record could have easily been close to or at 500 right now, but we couldn't get the job done. I would predict OKC getting a top 10 pick this year. I guess people that want the Raps to tank, take into account the pick is likely going to be around 10, figure it's better to tank and increase our odds to retain the pick. If the pick is 4-5th (which is worst case scenario), the tankers think it's not that bad because it's going to a Western conference team (OKC), we were compensated with Lowry already, and we gave ourselves the best odds of retaining the pick. On the other hand, others would say there’s still 70 games to go and although we might not make it to the playoffs, let’s try to finish strong and give up a 13th or so pick which won’t come back to haunt us.
What do you guys think?

The way I see it: If we go with the status quo in terms of our current roster for the remainder of the season, there’s no way we’re going to be the worst team in the league. If there was a high likelihood of us being the worst team, I’m all for tanking. We need to start exploring trade options for Bargnani. With Derrick Favours playing well, both Millsap and Jefferson as UFAs, and Kanter on the roster, Utah has to trade one of those players -Let’s get a third team involved. I don’t like the 2 point guard system; Calderon needs to go or primarily be just a back up PG. We need to free up some PT for Ross. I don’t mind missing the playoffs, but as long as our young players are developing and we give up a late pick somewhere in the neighborhood of 10th or so to OKC. We need to start winning some more games.

So its either we win have win/loose record like last year and give OKC their pick or we actually tank and get that top 3. Unless anyone here believes that we will make that playoffs these are our options.
Hell i don't even care about the playoffs as long as we can compete and this team is exciting to watch and build the winning mentality. But right now we are not doing any of that. I think that Raps from last season would beat us

Also guys I hear people saying this draft sucks and we should hope to get the pick out of the way in this draft since its weak, but is there at least one franchise player at all? I don't follow NCAA much sorry

come on let's get some wins and let our young guys smell some winning air, they won't learn anything by being losers all the time, the coming draft is very bad, tanking is the wrong way imo

kind of risky without a pick. we need to end up in the 10-14 area when draft time comes
