Default Who, if anybody, are you rooting for to win the tank?

Who do you want to see land the high end prospects of this year's loaded class? If it's your own team, note that.

Why them?


For me, it's Orlando because seeing my man Drew win at the NBA level would be fun.
Charlotte because I'm glad the Hornets are back.
Utah because a good friend of mine is from Utah and is a fan.


The team I'm rooting AGAINST for the tank is Milwaukee. Not sure why, just never liked that franchise. Probably aesthetics related.

Raptors, obviously, because they are my team. Although I'd be thrilled with just getting a top 3 pick. Any of the top 3 would be awesome to have in Toronto.

If not the Raptors then I hope Milwaukee wins it. Just for the lulz because they are so irrelevant. It would be funny if after all the hype, Wiggins or Parker end up in Milwaukee for 6-7 years.

Nuggets (if Knicks keep losing), I want to see the damage they can do with one more talented piece.

Raptors getting Wiggins would be damn cool. Other than that, I couldn't really care less considering my Cavaliers are hoping/expecting playoffs.

good thread. as an impartial fan i'll say sacramento and new orleans from the west and from the east toronto , boston and washington.


was and new orleans tried to be competitive this year, have nice young pieces and it would be even more fun for them to get a top pick and sacramento, boston and toronto because they need this, and their fans are great


i would love something like:

1. Toronto - Andrew Wiggins - Nothing to say here, we all know this kid and where he's from. Would be nice for some hype for canada's basketball, maybe others would come there and create a contender in the next 4-5 years

2. Washington - Jabari Parker - At this moment his is a little better than wiggins, i like what the wizards are doing, would be fun wall/parker

3. Boston - Marcus Smart - Pair him with rondo and that would be one of the best defensive front courts in the league. also gives jeff green another 1-2 years to develop in the frontcourt. You also could trade bradley for something nice.

4. New Orleans - Joel Embiid - A seven footer with an exceptionally high ceiling who reportedly only started playing basketball in 2011 with fantastic potential. Just imagine him at C and David at PF

5. Sacramento - Julius Randle - 6'9 pf with a nba comparasion of larry johnson/chris webber. Rudy Gay/Derrick Williams/Julius Randle/Demarcus Cousins just sick

Randle is the last thing we need imo I rather that crazy skilled 7-footer kid from Cameroon or Willie Calley Stein (not saying he's better than Randle) as shot blockers.

The Nets, of course, because the Hawks own that pick.

I don't like the Raptors, but I'm Canadian and it would be nice to see the Raps get it, so basketball becomes bigger in Canada. Or the Bobcats so Jordan has a successful team.

Jazz aren't tanking, but I'd like them to get a nice pick

Watching their games, their stadium is usually almost-full even though they don't really win much...I think they deserve a nice player to add to their core so they can finally start winning

why don't you want him? his the best 5th player atm. i would've picked a sf instead but with rudy there ... jabari can't play sg or pf for long streaches and wiggins can't either.
