I think NBA needs to incentivize teams to not tank as hard.

Maybe make all teams in the nba have a shot at the lottery picks.

Pretty blatant tanking. How quickly they ruled both Klay and Steph out for the season is obvious.

What’s the point of him playing in meaningless March and April games when the Dubs will already be eliminated from playoff contention by them anyway? And why are people pretending to be but butthurt about it? I’m so tired of people railing and failing on tanking.


Ask the thousands of people who paid an incredible amount for season tickets.

But maybe the Warriors are giving some refunds...


Total lame sauce argument. Tired of old fogeys using tickets as an excuse for their false morality.

Ummmm, you know now he’s not playing right now right??? So... StubHub? All the other secondary markets? Maybe you’re going to the game to see the team and not just one guy? The corporations that snapped up most of those tickets don’t care, they’re still giving them out to employees and clients.

They already re-did the lottery. Teams are already not as incentivized as they were before. There will always be tanking anyway.

Breaking News: Draymond Green's injured finger is worse than previously diagnosed, and he may miss the rest of the season. Steve Kerr's back is sore as well, so he's gonna take the rest of the year off too.

I don't recall Jordan playing with a G-League roster, but maybe my memory is going bad.

Steph Curry is the most overrated "superstar" in the history of this league. I'm sure you have a perfectly fine rebuttal, but I would save it, my mind has long ago been made up and this season just confirmed it. Absolutely a mental midget.

? They haven't ruled out Steph. GSW vehemently denied the Bucher ideas.

I like how you think. As far as I'm concerned, Earth is flat, and before you try to convince me otherwise with a perfectly fine rebuttal based on facts, I want you to know that my mind has been made up long ago based on feelings.

Thankfully science and a children's game played by adults have different standards of proof.

Stephen Curry is the greatest player to ever set foot on a basketball court. The hyperventilating of his critics proves it.

Sounds about right. Warriors are going to be universally hated again if they sit Steph all year.

Have you seen Jordan early years? Dlo and Green are g league huh, Dlo just drop 53 points last night..What a bunch of g league...

If hes healthy he should play, this season pretty much expose his defense...He's not that much better than Lillard.

They already re-did the lottery. Teams are already not as incentivized as they were before. There will always be tanking anyway.

But make all teams have a shot. Even make odds lower

I have zero interest in seeing a 60 win team have the same odds at #1 as a 25 win team. You might as well go back to the 60’s draft rules with territorial rights and the like at that point.
