    Default For tank nation

    Have a read. Hopefully it puts some things into perspective. Anthony Davis could be KD or Sheldon Williams. It's tough to know how people will turn out. Draft this year, free agency and hopefully wins in the next year. We can't keep tanking. We have to win sometime

    How do you win without talent? And how do you obtain talent in a market that isn't "desired" by free agents?

    The draft is the only realistic answer...and the higher the pick, the better (obviously).

    The current draft lottery system needs to be fixed in a big way. All this tanking is ultimately bad for business.

    My fix (until I think of something better): All teams get one ball. The first 5 balls that come up are the first 5 picks and then picks 6 onward are determined by worst records. Every team plays to get into the playoffs, losing is not necessarily rewarded, tanking becomes a non issue.

    Most definitely. But i hope after this draft, we never ever draft in the Top 20 ever again.

    Top rookies this year, so far:
    1. Kyrie Irving (drafted 1st)
    2. Isaiah Thomas (drafted 60th)
