    Bones Hyland is an absolutely special shooter. Not sure if Orlando is the right place to develop him, because, well, we haven't developed a shooter since JJ, and we legitimately don't seem to know what to do with guys who can shoot... but it's a new day, so hell yeah, bring it on.

    I'm a big fan of Kenny Atkinson. Dude led U of Richmond to the sweet 16 back in the 80's, first of all. Beyond personal fan-dom, I like the guy's coaching style. He's studied under good basketball minds, offensive and defensive, and he's creative. I think Cole and Markelle would thrive under Atkinson, personally.

    The entire point is that it has never resulted in a championship. That is the argument I've been making since literally the first sentence of my entry into this exchange. Feel free to debunk that argument, but teams who didn't win it all by tanking, paired with Boston who didn't tank, isn't working.

    To elaborate, only Memphis among those teams tanked (had consecutive poor seasons). Their tanking resulted in Hasheem Thabeet, Rudy Gay and Mike Conley...not exactly a haul worth tanking for. They got good when they stopped tanking and got good veterans

    Cool. Not new, just either a bad memory or a selective one.

    Had to go back all the way to 2006 for that? How many of those seasons are relevant to the conversation?

    Talk is talk. Our actions were of a team that was throwing away seasons. Trading JJ, trading Aaron Aflalo, not re-signing Anderson, those were tanking moves. We traded solid veterans for unproven young guys that were not too picks. That is not really up for debate. Again, are you new to this team?

    You're already suggesting that three seasons of <25 wins wasn't enough. You are one of the people advocating this

    So... Nothing that could possibly have had any effect... Okay sure.

    And the difference is?

    If it's over. Some people seem to be advocating intentionally being terrible again next year if we don't get a top pick

    You can engage in all the absurd semantics you want. Three seasons <25 wins is tanking by any measurement, whether it helps your argument or not.

    Several reports that we could have had Curry, but were worried about his injuries. Dwight was a significantly better deal than what OKC got for Harden. No reason to think OKC wouldn't have gone for it. Plenty of teams have lost great players and continued rebuilt without multiple seasons of tanking.

    I'm pretty sure OKC fans are no happier with those years than fans in Houston, Memphis, Boston, or any other perennial playoff team that didn't win it all over those years, except they didn't have to suffer tanking multiple seasons.

    There were other options. By all reports we could have gotten any number of players. We chose picks and expiring contracts. Hell, we probably could have gotten Harden, honestly.
