Well, if that is what the cool kids are doing then.................
On a serious note. Most of the teams that are set up that way have players who deserve the big paydays. Tell me who, among the Pacers players deserves that? None of the current ones do.
So how does the team acquire such players?
Trades? Which team (or teams) would be willing to trade a TRUE max player to us for our players? No, I can't think of one either.
Draft? Not likely with our usual drafting position. Also not likely any of our current players could fetch a pick that might become a max player.
This team is basically stuck until it is bad enough to earn a number one of two pick. As we have seen this year, we can't even get that right when we have a chance.
Hate to say it, but the best chance we have to be good, is to be REALLY bad for a couple of years.
And I doubt the Simons or the fanbase have the stomach for it.
