    It's rebuild now while the likely benefit from rebuilding (a higher draft pick) will have the maximum value. That isn't the same thing as Tank for 2014 to me.

    All drafts aren't created equal. Raps fans know this more than most teams....
    2002 - Yao Ming
    2003 - LeBron James
    2004 - Dwight Howard
    2005 - Andrew Bogut
    2006 - Andrea Bargnani
    2007 - Greg Oden
    2008 - Derrick Rose
    2009 - Blake Griffin
    2010 - John Wall
    2011 - Kyrie Irving

    ...so why not time the necessary rebuild, over-haul, roster-cohesiveness-maximization or whatever you want to call it with one of the best drafts of all-time?

    Well there was a time when it didn't say that. Read the poll. Who are the nine people who voted yes? Maybe they can direct you to their posts?
    Dude, there's only two options for the poll.

    If you aren't for "tinkering" then by default, you have to vote "tanking"... That doesn't necessarily mean that you're all for giving away the Raptors talent at a huge discount just to try and win 15 games. I feel like I've said this a thousand times now but I think most people who are in the rebuilding group are doing so under the assumption that tearing this roster down would return a nice haul of picks, prospects and flexibility. Seriously... I haven't read anyone, on either side of the argument, that is looking for this team to strictly do a "salary dump" of Gay, Derozan, etc.

    Your definition of tanking is different from a lot of people in here and all of the media in that case. Tanking is operating under the intention of losing to enhance the odds in the lotto.

    The moves Ujiri makes may lead to the team taking a step back but they may improve too. The point is he's making decisions with long term improvement in mind and not
