So I mean just because you tank doesn't mean you're keeping that pick when it's top 3 protected.. Top 5, yeah, I could be down for last year's tank because you can guarantee your pick. And there's no Randle, no Kobe.. No nothing to even be playing for. Wasn't until like 30 games left that Clarkson was even a person who existed for us.
But in 2016 draft, only way we're keeping that pick is through luck.. Regardless of whether we finish as the 2nd worst or 6th worst...
Because we can be the 2nd worst team and tank the best of our ability and lose the pick.. Then you'd be killing yourself saying if we just won 2 more games, we keep the pick..
Let the young guys play. Hope they develop, be happy about wins, and come June hope for the best.
