Tank for Wiggins?



The best prospect since Kevin Durant? LOL, I'm kidding of course, but maybe I'm not...

Considering he wasn't even taken #1 overall, Durant is a really bad example...

I liked Parker better in the 15-20 minutes I managed to sit through of the McDonalds game

He absolutely is the best prospect since Oden/Durant.

Considering how well some of the last few tank-jobs have worked out, I'll pass.


The gold-standard for tank FAIL has to be the Celtics' attempt to get Tim Duncan in '97, when they had about a 40% shot due to the worst record in the league and owning another lottery pick. They ended up third overall

I'd call their attempt to do the same thing in 2007 about as bad if they hadn't turned their loss of the lottery into Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett through trades.

Read an article on ESPN that said numerous NBA Scouts and GMs stated he would absolutely be the number 1 pick this year and would go ahead of every number 1 pick since '07 except for Greg Oden, simply because if Durant didn't go ahead of Oden nobody was.

I think we had Davis' injuries and Gordon's recurring case of vaginitis to thank for that.

What game were you watching? I saw multiple players in that game that looked better than Parker on that day.

re: Tank for Wiggins?


I'd be very willing to tank one final year before we start our pel dynasty ;-). Getting jabari parker\wiggins\randle or a pg or center would be worth it. You have to remember a lot of kids are hyped before college only to disappoint. I think we need that extra piece to solidify our future though even if only as a trade piece. Without a good pick next year we willbe relying on teamwork without talent. 3 years lottery is the okc model.

What I think doesn't matter though. Benson wants to win, ad wants to prove his worth as does a bunch of others including our coach.

I dunno

I was barely paying attention to be honest. That game was pretty terrible.

Wiggins does not have the offensive game KD/Lebron had in HS but has the athleticism and defense. He will be a game changer no doubt. The 2014 NBA draft will be stacked so tanking is a terrible idea IMO

What a bunch of shortsighted people. Clearly they have no concept of how to build an NBA franchise.

One of the knocks on Wiggins is he needs to improve all aspects of his defense. Mostly because of the lack of effort on that side of the court.

3 years in a row with the number 1 overall pick will be impressive
