    @HP3 look at pelicans, they have Zion and all the assets, and picks and players, even NBA is helping them and they still tanking?

    seem like a team that acts on your philosophy, going for that championship the smart way

    Zion and Brandon Ingram are very young though. Remind me when we have any players of their calibur on the roster.

    what? I thought if you get the right picks everything is cared for automatically?

    phewww.......what a letdown ....they got all this and still tanking....

    for a moment i considered we should tank ourselves, then i saw that pelican team full of lotery picks GOING NOWHERE

    I mean....Zion is 20 years old and Ingram is 23 and already an all star. They will grow and get better. We have no one like that on our roster. Wether you think NO is competent organization though is up to you. I think they will be going somewhere is Zion becomes what he is supposed to be.

    Try as you might Hakeem...you have no logical argument here.

    Losing two in a row to the Cavs is already embarrassing.

    cmon they are a study case of what an almost ideal tank could produce after 4-5 years..

    you can only dream to be tanking for a few years and draft all the players they got ....only in your dream you can hit this kind of talent...

    and what is the result off all that ?
    NADA
    their record is pretty near our own, that is the alleged dumpster fire of a franchise that juts shipped their superstar...

    so how come this is not a logical argument against tanking

    so we have to wait for Zion to become what he is supposed to...

    1 what if he injures himself and doesnt even play anymore
    2 what if he leaves just like AD left before he becomes what hes supposed to?
    3 how do you even know what hes supposed to be
    4 also remmeber there are also 10 other tanking teams doing the same
    5 how hes gonna overcome Philly which you say is now destined to win it all(just a simmons trade away)?

    6 all in all you may tank for 30 years and nothing is guaranteed for you, nothing, except that you were pathetically losing during that period, and the title may be won by the team like miami that didnt even tank at all...
    the only thing tank guarantees is losing... this is the only sure thing with the tank...

    None of this is a compelling argument for why we shouldnt tank. You can literally offer a hypothetical for anyone situations. We dont have the talent end of story.

    i guess Harden only shoots in the 2nd half now that he is a net.

    Thats what they said about miami last year...jimmy butler was laughed at for choosing miami and nobody thought about them as serious contenders... Jimmy butler was thought of as choosing beach and nightlife instead of contending ....

    we dont have the talent?!
    get out of here Sam Presti!

    Disagree.
    The bubble environment really helped Miami and it is unlikely that they can ever replicate that success.

    We dont have the talent.

    The NBA has become a league where everyone lives and dies off of the three pointer. Everyone knows that already, I guess, but it's kinda anticlimactic. If your team can stop the three or make them, it has a chance, if it can stop the three and make them, they're winning most of their games.

    Harden still looks like the best player even though he's not scoring....but he also ...still doesnt look like Harden man, its weird. He still looks like a lesser version of himself.
