I'm not concerned about teams who won a championship through tanking, I'm more concerned about teams who are COMPETING for a championship. Our team isn't competing, Utah isn't competing, Atlanta isn't competing. Those two teams make the playoffs it seems every year (save Utah last season), but they are never competing.
Teams who are/have competed by going for high draft picks in the past 6 years (whether cause they are tanking, or just suck ass) include OKC, Memphis, Boston, Clippers.
It won't be good just to be stuck in limbo as a 5/6/7/8th seed in the East... Why punish ourselves like this? People who think we are just one piece away from competing need to get out of their illusion of how good we are. Cause we aren't good. Oh yeah just get another role player and we can compete next year? So you're suggesting that we can compete with Miami next year and beat them in a best of 7? How about Chicago/Brooklyn/Indiana and even New York?
