While I like your enthusiasm for your namesake, the Nuggets have never had the inclination nor the luck in the lottery to have anything but wishful thinking. Barring injuries, we'll be in thew playoffs of close to where we're at right now.

And I personally think Donic will end up much better than Gallo

He's not Lebron like talent to tank for him before season even starts :roll: He's still white euro player at guard position in NBA , who is the last player to even make the all star appearance from Europe that have played outside the paint area :-? I would never draft him as number one pick overall.

:lol: Tanking that far out is crazy. Nobody knows what's going to happen and no one player is worth throwing away a roster and to be the worst, that's pretty much what you have to do. Most NBA players want to win - EVERY GAME! NBA coaches want to win every game even more than the players do. :nod:

Let's carry it to the extreme and start tanking for Steph Curry's son and maybe LeBron James' son. :roll:

I am not interested in tanking for anybody at this point, I am however ready for a youth movement to take over and sign some veteran defensive bench depth and see what happens. Worse case scenario we end up with a good pick, best case we end up with a young growing playoff team.
