Brandon Jennings Situation = Proof Tanking Wouldn't Work Here

1 post in this topic

The small army of people on here who champion tanking filled their diapers upon learning we wouldn't be signing Brandon Jennings. This proves that if we really go Sixers-style in for tanking and just sign absolute trash, people will disown the team and the attendance will plummet to ungodly levels due to fan unrest and 10-72 records. 

Fans want the best-case scenario out of tanking, but they want that best-case scenario now without having to actually, you know, tank and lose a lot of games. Tanking also nukes your chances of attracting free agents for years. Think it's bad now? Jeremy Lin wouldn't have looked twice at Charlotte if we were doing what many of you suggest.

The team as it is now isn't very good. In fact, without Cody Zeller providing a good punch alongside a rapidly progressing Frank and Kemba/sometimes Batum, we don't win games because our bench sucks. The starting five isn't great but it's not bad either. 

I guess what I'm saying is our team needs a lot of improvement, but torpedoing everything would not succeed here.
