Default Is this not obvious tanking?

The transparency of the tanking taking place in Miami is truly astounding. I mean, when the coach publicly states that the offseason and the draft are more important than the actual NBA games that his team is playing this year, what else do you need to be 100% sure that Riley just isn't trying anymore.

And on top of this, he rips his players for giving up and not finishing out the game like pros last night...

thats a big problem in the NBA. it loses a lot of competiveness in the end of the season. In the european leagues, you never see that cause the worst teams go to the second league. thats why sometimes games between the worst teams are even better than games between te best teams because they fight each other to stay in the top category. And more importantly fans keep going to the games too.
