    After watching Kansas/Duke and seeing both Wiggins and Parker going at it, I must say Tank Nation is the only solution. Count me in.

    Eventhough I don't believe in tanking, I still felt it's only right to change my avatar too just so I could at least fit in.

    But no difference of opinions is boring too, Doc!

    There hasn't been a lot of discussion by 'anti-tankers' of late. I imagine the first good game they'll be back, however, it is becoming apparent to all something has to give. I guess the next step if the goal is to make the playoffs is to fire Casey.

    And if Casey isn't fired, Masai's strategy will be clear.

    Casey is all but gone. It's just a matter of when.

    If you're Masai, do you stick with Casey until season's end to ensure more losses? But risk our young players developing bad habits?

    Or do you fire him mid-season, promote one of our assistants on an interim basis, and look to find your "guy" in the offseason?

    I agree. But if we do go tank mode I don't think Casey is the right coach for it. To me tanking isn't only about being awful. It's about developing the assets you have. You have to have a coach that can teach winning ways someone that teaches how to make the right decisions. Casey is not that coach. He is a defensive specialist and I'd be more than happy to have him as an assistant.

    I know I should be pro Wiggins but a front court of JV and Randle would be terrifying and would make up for passing on Drummond.

    I cannot condone tanking. Its not a healthy lifestyle choice. I am here in protest of all tankers in the hopes of raising awareness for this disease. Make no mistake, it is in fact a disease. How can we raise our children in a society where tanking is acceptable? I for one cannot, and will not, stand idly by and let the tankers of the world take over this website.

    This team needs to swim with the fishes...
    There's math, and everything else is debatable.

    That sounds like it was lifted from the tea party manifesto

    Do you want Raps to make playoffs and suck for the next 3-5 years (1st rd exits, role players drafted) and maybe even more?

    I'm the fan of this team and I'm loving every second when this team wins, but for the future - I hope Raptors will loose and get at least a shot to draft future superstar.

    2014 Draft is going to be epic. I don't see us landing any stars in free-agency for now, so why Raps should wait when they can tank now and hope for the best. You never know - our tank could blow up in the pick lottery, but who doesn't risk never gets to drink champagne.

    In order to change culture, you need true superstar and I hope Jabari or Wiggins is the answer.

    With all the various meanings of "tank", I think this one is also applicable...

    Go watch some clips of Wiggins, Parker and Randle and fast-forward seven months. I mean not years... months. If you could explain the benefits of sacrificing something for a greater value in return to your kids early in their life... they'd go a long way.

    Oh, as a side note... assuming the team tanks and we have the #1 pick - I am not sure who I'd take at this point; Canadian connection (and sentiments and jersey selling) aside and judging on purely basketball stand point from a team perspective.
