Ernie: I'll tank, but you need to give me job assurance because I don't want to be held accountable for the awful record you want.
Ridiculous fans: This GM sucks because he's losing and not signing second round pick roll players that would help us win three more games than we have won.
All these meaningless players you drool over DO NOT MATTER. The NBA is a star driven league. Learn it. Accept it. Without a top ten player, you OUGHT to be tanking. Ernie isn't good, or great, but he is doing his job.
Is actually a very good team...
If the intent was to tank, then we had no business making the Okariza acquisition (or the Nene trade, for that matter).
I'm sure we'd all feel a bit better about being 0-16 if we had max cap room this summer. At least then, it would feel like a plan. But what's happening isn't a plan. This is simply failure. Fire EG.
