Well, this isn't the NFL so ... draft picks are still determined by a lottery system, and until that changes, 'tanking' or being very bad doesn't really do much for us IMO. To some degree, I honestly question the integrity of the draft system. Stern & Company behind closed doors could still be pulling strings.
To add, the picks we do take (even in the top 10 range) are almost always questionable ones.
