At the risk of jinxing the rest of the season and sending the raps into a tailspin, has a team ever tanked the last couple games of a season in order to get a more favorable match up?
I want no part of Atlanta, not even an injured Hawks team. They are our kryptonite, they are fast, athletic and versatile. They are everything we are not.
Talking in pure hypothetical terms here. What if on the final day we were tied with Miami for the 5th spot, the Magic in the 3 seed and the Hawks in the 4.
Would it be Triano's call to dump the last game or Bry's?
Would it not make more sense or give Miami a shot to knock off the Hawks?
I feel this would be somewhat of an unprecedented move, but I would fully advocate a chance to finally knock out that coward wince.
