i am more interested in looking down the road at something that provides hope than watching this sorry bunch of chuckers be mismanaged into the ground by a leader that can't coach offense.

If masai is smart as everyone says, he's making phone calls and exploring options already. Not a bad idea to come up with a list of coaches for hire for next year when they're serious about winning.

LOL ye, As much as I want to go full out tank standings, I am keeps it as unbiased as possible right now. Just because of the even split of people wanting playoffs and those wanting to tank

Today is a big day for the tank or playoffs. A lot of teams playing today. If we win today we go to the 4th seed.

If we lose, the nets win, bucks win, wizards win, and knicks win. We go to half a game behind last place in the conference I believe

The EC is so weak... It looks like teams can suck badly and still make the playoffs.

8th place is on pace for about 33 wins. What's the norm, 37?38?

Well the east is garbage this year. It is going to be hard to tank. It is possible though

Things will even out by the midway part of the year. Washingtons guards will stop shooting so poorly. Detroit will figure out how to play defence with their 3 bigs. Cleveland will play near their potential(this actually seems like the least likely of the three I've mentioned sadly). Brooklyn will figure things out once they get healthy.

The top 4 in the East is set IMO, the next 4 should be between NY, CLE, DET, WAS, and ATL. The other 6 teams are either in purgatory like us(CHA/MIL), or in tank mode(PHI/BOS/ORL).

As I said before the year, we have 0 chance of making the playoffs with the team as currently constructed, especially with our bench being this bad. It'd take our entire starting 5 hardly missing any games, plus the starters somehow figuring out how to play together and play well despite Caseys ineptitude and Demar/Rudys selfishness.

The tank will be revealed by the end of 2013 the latest, and I'm looking forward to it. Once one of our wings is dealt, it should really open up the opportunities for Amir and JV, and then hopefully we'll be at least somewhat watchable during all of the losses, and believe me, there's going to be a lot of them.

We suck. We might as well suck as much as possible to increase our chances of getting a top pick in an absolutely stacked draft.

Im hoping so, but with a tank this tight, every loss can make a huge difference. But this draft is solid, I think even if we get a late first rounder from a trade, early second. Masai will find a good role player
