The championship tank is having some serious technical issues right now.

The Jazz are playing with house money at this point. Somehow, they are in a position to make the playoffs while having gutted the team for future value. I was all for doing the Tankiest Tank to ever Tank (talking Char 1b type of job here), but Utah has some high value pieces in position and rolling. At this point, I'm good with using some of the future assets to build around Ochai, Lauri, and Kessler. If we make the playoffs? Sweet, more experience for them. If not, better lottery odds. A downside fails to occur to me here.

true but there is minimal incentive for this front office to claim any benefit to the playoffs, when they cannot even put a good product on the floor as many rotation players are not in the future plans. Example is the turnstyle of guards filling in for the still injured Sexton.
I was good with seeing what they had and if they win so be it, but they cannot do that without seeing a longer stretch of games with a fully healthy core.
I don't think they are making the playoffs now or even trying to do so, barring some fast recovery from Sexton and some rooks being ahead of the curve

Funny to look at the standings and see us within 1.5 games of:

Mavs - desperate win now Kyrie move
Warriors - defending champs deep in tax
Wolves - sell the farm to go All-in
Lakers - All-in with 2 superstars
Hawks - win now DJM trade
Raptors - minor win now move on the DL
Bulls - win now moves for past 2 years

Meanwhile we have invested nothing into this season and have basically just piled picks, cleared cap and trimmed roster for the future.
