This tells me a couple of things:
1) He has us as a 7th or 8th seed in the east.
2) Bc of 1, we should be tanking
Why should we, a franchise so use to losing in horrific fashion, be in a rush to earn the last seed in the east in what is shaping up to be the best nba draft since 1996? I mean part of the reason we're even projected to finish this high is that most of the smart teams are tanking. What is one more season of losing going to do? The 15 fans we currently have aren't going anywhere. We're still going to watch. If we end up out of the lottery and landing mitch mcgary in a draft where we could have one of possibly 10 all star caliber players just to get knocked in the first round of the playoffs we should all be furious. All we have to do to position ourselves well in this draft is to do what we have shown to do best for the past I don't know, 30 years. LOSE! I can't emphasize this enough. I know alot of us are tired of losing. throw me in that group as well but i can lose one more year if we can get players as talented as Wiggins, Randle, Gordon, Embiid, Parker, Walker, or Saric (after vesely i'm weary on this kid though). Honestly if we end up missing on one of these talented players bc we wanted to be the atlanta hawks i might be done with the bullets for good. i can take the losses, the mismanagement, the jan veselys, but I will not accept deviating from our yearly plan of losing in the worst possible year to do so. just makes no sense. If the lakers and the celtics are tanking in the same year we should too.
