This. I don't think Tank supporters are fair weather fans, I think they're just being stupid. I was pro tank last year, but last year not only was there a franchise player in the draft, there wasn't a single guy on the team you could say with certainty was a long term piece. The rebuild is at a different point this season and there are probably more helpful pieces in FA than the middle of the lottery.
I was obviously opposed to "tanking" last year, but I agree with the gist of what you're saying. I took most of the losses last year in stride because of the draft (even though I think luck and/or Stern had more to do with getting The Brow). Like you said, the draft just isn't that good this year. You may very well end up wasting cap space on a lottery pick.
For the sake of forward momentum, I want to see wins. I want to see our guys learn how to close out games. I want to see Davis learn to play with foul trouble. I want to see Gordon, Vasquez, and Anderson start to consistently show killer instinct. I want Rivers to continue improving his drive and kick game (his shot needs a LOT
of offseason work). I want to see the guys having fun playing together. I want them building chemistry for the future. I do not want to see losses.
All that said, I still fully expect to end up in the 6-10 range if we hold onto the pick.
