Are you under the impression that a front office trading away their vets and sitting their young players for "injury" isn't a method of tanking?
The Cavs tanked hard the whole year as the plan to get LeBron.
MOST tanking is a response to issues during the season tipping them over from trying to play to trying to lose, but the full season tank absolutely happens.
name a full season tank other than Philly...as in teams literally went into the season trading away or not playing their best players
also no, trading players you don't need any more for draft picks is not tanking, it's the right move.
I already mentioned the Cavs tank for LeBron.
If the front office trades away players for lesser players who are younger knowing the result will be a good shot at a top pick that is tanking.
I know there are people out there who don't think tanking is real and it's not really possible to convince them otherwise so let's end it here with me being right and you thinking you are right
i never said tanking isn't real, I said they don't START the season tanking, there is a huge difference there. 99% of the time teams are actually trying to start the year and don't decide to tank until it's the obvious choice.
and considering you had to go back all the way to 2002 to come up with an example, sounds like u agree with this
