He never attempted to accumulate draft picks, and every year he just kept making quick-fix type moves in an effort to save his job.
22,23,34 Wins. Hard to argue we didn't tank
Actually I will concede that we semi-tanked in 2011-12, but the mistake was not resting our starters towards the end of the season. That resulted in us picking up way too many wins at the end and we ended up only picking 8th. That was the difference between getting a Beal or Lillard and TRoss.
In 2012-13 we did not tank at all. BC pulled a freaking panic move and traded for Gay mid-season. In no way, shape or form is that tanking.
The only year we definitively tanked in the BC era was 2010-11, and that was mostly because we had to because we had no cap space after Bosh left for BC to use on patchwork signings.
And just to add, we NEVER did what Orlando did during the BC Era. Never at any point in time did BC try to accumulate draft picks and young assets. He was constantly looking to convert the young assets/picks that we did have into patchwork jobs and quick fixes. Look at the Jermaine O'Neal trade, look at the Gay trade, look at the Lowry trade (panned out for us luckily).
Took a whole lot of shots, bricked most of them, but because he took so many he had a couple of nice makes too (DeRozan and JV picks, Lowry trade, etc). His problem was instead of being patient, surveying the court and looking for an open teammate to get a bucket; he made chucked up contested fadeaway threes (patchwork moves) to try and save his ass.
Yeah Giannis is getting overrated now, I see so many people trying to say he a franchise player looool
He's gonna be a good player but not a franchise type! At best he's gonna be the 3rd option on a contender
"We had to put the ball in Rudyís hands. He had it going,Ē Casey said. ďDeMar struggled. I think he was 2-for-15 in the first half. Rudy was the only one that really had something rolling with a rhythm. It was one of those nights. If it was DeMar rolling we would have milked him. But tonight it was Rudy and did a great job of carrying us, getting us into overtime
Rudy shot 11-37......................
