Too soon to call for the tank again?

Unless Derozan and Davis pull off a miracles in the summer, we'll be in the lottery again.

I really think we should give Kemba a try at #5. The guy is a winner and a competitor. He's got Wade-esque swagger and I think he's the most worth the gamble at that pick. I can see him developing into a decent 6th man or a player somewhat similar to Rodney Stuckey.

I'd rather swing for the fences and risk a total bust than settle for a solid 6th man. This current roster sucks and needs star talent.

Kemba may have the "swagger" and be called a competitor but he doesn't have the fraction of talent that Wade did. I'd rather have a guy that is actually productive on the court than one who has all these mystical intangible qualities.

Yeah, even when we have a season to tank, we can't even do that. How can you "fail" at tanking?

As if we need to tank to be in the lottery next year. Barring a major free agent signing and lucking out in this draft, we suck again.
