Don't think we can outmaneuver Utah's tank, it's incredibly powerful right now
East: -- - - West:
Brooklyn 2-2 -- Portland 2-2
Toronto 2-3 -- New Orleans 2-3
Cleveland 2-3 -- Memphis 2-3
Chicago 1-3 -- Lakers 2-3
New York 1-3 -- Sacramento 1-3
Washington 1-3 -- Utah 0-5
Boston 1-4 -- Denver 0-3

I pretty sure that after next 5 games Cleveland, Chicago and New York are going to have better record than us. Washington most likely will too, so that would leave us with 2nd worst record in the east, and 3rd or 4th the worst in the league

Utah's tank is masterful.... all of their future core is getting big minutes but they're surrounded with absolute stiffs so they're losing.... impressive planning. Even Lucas can't right that ship!

Utahs tank will be derailed a bit when Burke returns, theyll start winning a few games, but who knows when that's going to be.

I still like PHX/BOS/PHI to lead the tanking war. Masai needs to blow this up quickly.

Hopefully by December Rudy will be traded and DC will be canned

That will show them!

Once we are done with that, we should fight world hunger by posting yellow smileys.

Nothing personal, just that I've gone from 60/40 to being 95% annoyed with this attitude.
So little positivity on these forums. Posters go from being foolishly optimistic straight to tank without middle ground.
BLIND OPTIMISM BEST OPTIMISM. WE GOING FAR GUYS!

What are you expecting? How can we be positive when our team has been shit for the majority of its existence, PLUS we're one of the worst teams in the NBA to watch in terms of pure entertainment value. There is no middle ground in this case. If you want this collection of middling talent to make the playoffs then you're deluded because we have no room for improvement with this core, and it'll screw us out of getting a top prospect in a loaded draft. If you're pro tank/blow up, then you're thinking clearly, as you understand that again, this collection of middling talent isn't going to take us anywhere but the 9th-10th seed.

The only way this team makes the playoffs is if Masai somehow trades for Rondo without giving up Val, and makes 2-3 other follow up trades to greatly improve our bench.

That isn't going to happen. Get over yourself, and hop on the train to future improvement. This year is another write off, but at least we finally have a good GM and president who seem to know what they want to do going forward. We havent had direction in a long time, and besides Val, this is the one thing to get excited about with this team.

It doesn't actually feel good to feel like you have to tank. But if your talent level, depth, payroll distribution, coaching, maybe even development are all wonky, changes are coming.

Wish there were more teams like the Knicks with which to do business. I like a lot of these guys, but some of them need to go be rich somewhere else.

And I'm not trying to dump on Rudy Gay because he seems to have put in work in the off season. The bulk just may have been a mistake. Being quicker and better conditioned might have been better. Reminds me of when Bargnani got bloated to play a type of game he doesn't even play. For those of you who play sports, go ahead and put on 15-20 pounds in 5 months (without steroids) and get out there and see how it feels.

Rudy's conditioning looks fine. And he hardly looks slow. He just can't shoot, which follows a long-term trend.

And stop making excuses for Bargnani. If he had put in the work Rudy did he might have been worth something.

I agree changes are coming. That's been a given. The question is what the nature of those changes will be. Tanking isn't the automatic option.

It is when you have no cap space, negative assets, and a sweet draft coming up to work with. :mu:

Negative assets? Ok. You got me there.

Oh that draft. That sweet sweet draft. If we really have negative assets then do we need to tank? Probably not right?
