    Agree. There was no chance to grab Lillard. But Harrison Barnes would have been a good fit.
    A pox on GS! Maybe Curry's ankle wille nd up being worse than thought and they'll start losing a bunch of games. There's no chance at all for them to tank into the 6th pick this time.

    Nah that's below average if I exagerrate a tiny bit.
    David Locke: "Because what happens in this league is, people start shooting threes and they get soft and donít want contact and then they just stay out there all the time. Youíre not going to get soft, are you?"
    Enes Kanter: "I kind of live in the paint, man. Come on. I wonít get soft. Donít worry about that."

    This is not GS's fault. Had we been smart and ran our young guys instead of pushing for a first round sweep, we could have had Lilliard and Barnes and two bigs with confidence and experience. We would be a better OKC.

    But hey, we played SA tough for about ten seconds and the Millers made a lot of money.

    Jazz tanking would not have guaranteed them getting Lilliard and Barnes.
    Jazz would have had GS #8 pick at best.
    Lilliard and Barnes were both gone before that.
    Jazz own pick in the top 7 was a long shot.
    Then the GS pick would have slid to #9.

    But instead we got demoralized so we could steadfastly pursue a rinse and repeat for the next season.

    But Jazz would have gotten one lottery pick if they "tanked".
    A 12 to 15 type pick.
    So who might the Jazz have missed on if they did?
    Doesn't seem to be a player in that range last year that Jazz wish they really had does it?

    The ironic thing is, if the Jazz played Favors more and Al less, I still think we make the playoffs.

    I'm not so much addressing tanking as I am giving other guys minutes. If we happened to lose a few more games, fine. We'd be compensated. If we losses a few more games (not saying we should have) then we would have retained our own draft pick and we would have likely could have kept the GSW pick pending the outcome of our game with them. In any case, I don't root for tanking or losing. I am, however, ok with making moves that may cost us games if it helps in the long-run (i.e. actually playing Kanter and Favors last year). We played the vets (which included Howard and Bell) to achieve that 'valuable' playoff experience. We'll do the same this year.
