Default How many teams tank for 2014 draft this season

With players like Wiggins, Parker, Gordon, Randle, and the Harrison twins all potentially being in it?

Predict what the lowest record will be

This is going to be a tank season for the ages. Should have plenty for the lowlight reel.

Hmm I say 18 wins will be the floor for the worst record this year

I'll say 8 teams below 30 wins

Iriving gets injured, Cavs tank, Cavs get 10% chance to win pick, send Gilbert's son back with nerd swag to lottery, get #1 pick again, bow-tie love.

there are some more established college players in the class as well that look promising. Mitch McGary, Isaiah Austin, and Smart are gonna be good too imo

Toronto doesn't have to try to tank.... they're guaranteed to suck.

Bobcats

MJ will probably still end up drafting the wrong guy next year

Charlotte or Boston (depending on their coach) should have the worst record even if they tried to win every game.

But as for who may actually try to tank (I don't believe any team will intentionally try to lose. Rest their best players, maybe...)? I could see Toronto, Detroit, Orlando, or Phoenix maybe giving it a shot.

Though I still think Toronto is good enough to fight for the #8 seed, especially now that Boston, Philly, and Milwaukee will be worse and so may the Hawks if they don't get good/star FAs

Playoff teams will be fighting for the 9th seat... all for a tiny crack at a poor man's Lebron.
