How long until Brooklyn becomes desperate?

Considering just the tax penalties they pay is more than our entire payroll, things don't look good so far.

That's the kind of team Ujiri needs to feast on. But what do they have that we could use?

I like how all the tankers here said: "wait till we head out west and play against teams that actually matter"

Result thus far: 2OT loss and a blowout win.

Maybe we're better than we thought.

They are playing better than they were before. But also played against a sick HOU team and a MEM team that is a shadow of its former self. So, good sign, but hardly proof of anything yet. I'm pretty ambivalent right now - my judgment of the season will be based on the moves Ujiri makes and the end result more than the swings that occur in-season.

Still leaning to tank personally (especially having seen Wiggins et al play), but if what we saw last night is what this team is going forward, I could easily be convinced otherwise. If not (and I definitely doubt it), so be it.

Last year: 4-19
This Year: 4-5

With a tough early schedule, we are hanging in there! The main reason this team can compete is that this team plays defense:

5th in the NBA for Points Allowed: 94.9

Big difference with no Bargnani and Calderon.

They showed last year they can hover near .500 Just sad that the conference is bad enough to hold out hope for 8th even under .500.

There must be precious little out there in terms of deals. We need some other teams to figure out what they are and start making their moves.

I've seen enough. Flashes of hot shooting will always keep us hanging on to hope for a miracle. But tank time is wasting. Can't wait to see what's in Ujiri's bag of tricks if we end up 9th in the conference. Because honestly, I'd be pissed.

Something has to give. Whether it's DC getting fired, or one of our big three gets traded. After seeing last night, Ujiri has hopefully seen the light.

we keep hearing that Masai needs time to decide how to fix this team and what road to take. But it is so damn frustrating! Before we use to know that the team is tanking or that team is going to fight for playoffs. This year things are much different we still have no idea whats going on. None of the signings indicate the real trade direction, no real trade rumors. Well no Rumors at all..
The way I see it we are going on the autopilot, we are not doing much to be competitive, but we are not tanking either. So what the hell is really going on? and how long can this last?

Masai can't come out to the media and say hes tanking. He needs to keep the illusion hes trying to win. He is most likely letting things play out, then will trade everyone soon enough. By saying everyone is available, their value drops. Its an 82 game season and we just started, there is plenty of time to start the official tank.

wondering if MU is truly a genius and his plan was to keep casey and gay/demar/lowry because he thinks this is our best tanking shot (and no, I don't truly believe that, it's just sarcasm).

IMO keeping Casey is a smart idea if we tank, until its the final games of the season; we don't want another Uzoh triple double.

If anything it allows MU to retool instead of tank imo. Should get interesting

We need dance partners to make deals. And the big chip to be moved can't shoot, looks slower, misses layups, misses open passes and is so angry that he can now see the score sheet without glasses that he has banned the score sheet itself!

But there's no way we are looking like Clevaland with a bunch of mis-matched youth in 2016 so yes, I'd expect opportunistic deals along with a decent pick(s).

That's why I call it a hybrid tank.

If we're moving players to get talent in return i'd expect Derozan to be the first to go. Sell high?
