Default Someone aware me on tanking...

Is tanking done by the organization itself by signing cheap players not in demand until they can afford to rebuild?

Or is tanking done by the actual team itself, does the coach say, ok we are losing today's game? If so, that is farking weak.

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.

I don't think it's done by the coach. He'd get fired soon enough if he'd do that.

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.

Do we really think that guys who barely have a contract are going to go out there and intentionally play like sh*t and jeopardize their possible NBA career?

Tanking is solely the job of the guys putting the roster together. Players are out there playing for contracts, they aren't going to intentionally play like sh*t and risk losing a job in the future.
