Just dismiss the fact that MPJ's back issues is what caused him to fall and Robinson's attitude was also an issue and why he fell to the 2nd.
Where in any of that did I dismiss anything? I'm well aware of MPJs back issues at the time, draft him, sit him the year hence improving the tanking process.
Where are MRobs attitude problems now? Haven't heard any issues since he's been drafted.
This was just my personal preference at the time and of as I mentioned all in hindsight obviously.
And yes you can still tank correctly, as dice mentioned losing more games increases your odd of a better pick, they've just evened it out more now.
And yet there is evidence that "tanking correctly" guarantees a top 4 pick. The famed Zion/Ja draft is prime example of teams that tanked and it not working out for them at all.
I think you're getting reality and imaginary mixed up.
I said "imagine we tanked right the following year and got the no. 2 pick" I never said that it was reality and that it would all play out the same.
I know that the odds have changed and you're only guaranteed a top 5 pick if you're dead last, we had the 4th worst record that year and dropped back to 7th, I know what happened, I watched the lottery live.
Never once did I say that "if we had tanked properly we would have had a top 2 pick", I know how the lottery system works so please stop making it out as if that's what I'm saying.
This is more of how I wanted it to happen rather than 'it should have happened this way'.
