Well many variables are at play, in the Bobcats' situation, the owner decided to tank and made it clear by getting rid of all assets which consequently led to the coaching staff and players getting the message and not caring for shit. Post Lebron Cavs tanking was inevitable after them losing their most valuable asset for nothing and the hit their morale took. Some franchises are just too weak not to tank i.e. the Wizards.
Dam i guess this is why college ball overall is more popular than NBA ball. The whole business side to things really can fark sh!t up. I mean imagine being one of the players on one of these tanking teams.
BRB getting paid millions a year to play ball that my GM/owner wants me to fail at. These guys must be completely disillusioned with the league.
