Hinkie took on how many bad contracts again?
New, old, whatever, it's going to be adopted league wide because Hinkie tanking strat doesn't work anymore with new odds, doesn't take a scientist to figure out that 50% less success of goal (#1 pick) is going to break that. You mitigate it by getting more FRPs with light protection or un to increase your aggregate odds.
Are you being serious? Hinkie took on plenty of bad contracts.
How did you think they got from 5 to 1 in 2017?
The SAC dump in 2017 gave them swap rights, so they went from 5 to 3.
They added the unprotected SAC 2019 pick they got in the same dump to go from 3 to 1.
Just one example. Here’s a list of all his transactions.
What did you think BKN has been doing since the new FO took over? What did CLE do last year? BOS after we beat them in 2013? Presti when he started in OKC???
This is far from a new innovative strategy and has nothing to do with the changing of the odds.
Love Hinkie Homers who pretend to know his strat when in actuality don't understand the core principles and his pref.
First off, it’s not about the amount. It’s about the percentage of the cap that Hinkie absorbed. What was the cap in 2015? But who needs context?
This is hilarious. I don’t know his core strategy or beliefs? Sureeeee. It’s such a mystery.
I’ve been pitching this stuff for years here. You’re delusional thinking that taking on bad contracts is some cool new innovative strategy.
