I agree 100%.Mr B wrote:Hadley wrote:We need to pull a Sixers in the next few Years and try to get as many young Assets and Picks as possible. Then in like 3-5 Years when the Warriors break up we should have a solid core and can start to compete again.
There is really no reason to even try to be good. Unless we get LeBron and Curry together we wont even be close to a Championship and all we do is **** make our pick worse!
You obviously still want to show the young Kids to compete and play good Teambasketball, so they dont fall into bad habbits but trading for veterans is a really bad idea. And giving up draftpicks is a absolute no-go!
I want no part of being like the Sixers. They have been rebuilding since Iverson left. The culture they have established by the constant tanking has ruined any chance they had to be a good team.
The 76ers should be an example why multiple year ranking is not the way to build a team. I was fine "tanking" for the last part of last season but I'm strongly against a decade or more of horrible basketball for the extremely slim chance of finding a superstar in the draft.
Mavs should build the team through:
-taking the draft seriously and not trading away picks for mediocre talent. No wasted picks on 9ft tall Indians or trading down to save a few dollars.
-continue to use a few roster spots to tryout undrafted talent both American and International
-being opportunistic on trades
This is a well rounded approach to building a team without decades of bad basketball.
