I usually don't agree with your post a lot, but we can agree on this. People are naive and locked into a pretty dumb mindstate, if they somehow think tanking can be controlled. Every single one of these guys can win an NBA game on any given night. If this was college, this would be a school that only accepted the best in the world and 400 active students.
This is their livelihood, they will try to win every night. Why anyone would think that a player would want to perform bad, so some rookie can take their place is beyond me. And the more they lose, the more they want to taste a win.
These guys are playing for jobs/contracts (vets,rookies,management) and people are paying to view the product.
Be happy were a bottom 5 team, because of the trades and injuries and not middle of the road team this year.
If Fultz and JI were still active, there is just no way we don't win more games.
