Its Time to Tank

We'll have to agree to disagree on their intent then, but regardless, if the Jazz traded somebody like, say, Conley or Clarkson, for an injured or young player that they felt would make the team better in the future regardless of how this year's pick turns out, I wouldn't complain.
Bogut is part of the return of the tank for GS. That move was made literally as they decided to tank… they don’t make that move otherwise.

I wouldn’t complain if they tanked so would be fine with that type of deal. I just think it’s wrong to say they didn’t benefit from tanking just because Barnes had a bad finals… he helped them and so did bogut.

I think you guys are arguing semantics at this point.

GSW tanked to get Barnes and ended up with Bogut as a part of that process. Turns out that their draft and develop talent (healthy Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green) were the most crucial parts of their their success and allowed them to add other key parts (Andrew Bogut, Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant) to take them to another level - which has sustained them for almost a decade of success.

These next 7 games will probably determine if we begin to sell off pieces of this roster.

vs Warriors
vs Wolves
@ Nugs
vs Pelicans
vs Pelicans
@ Bucks
@ Cavs

At best I think we go 4-3 during that span but if we are lucky I think we could go 1-6. If that happens then we will likely already be sitting in that 6-8 draft range so we just need to part out a few pieces and strategically rest guys to maintain that level.

2-5 or 3-4 seems entirely possible. Lose that Wolves game and it might be 1-6. NO playing well right now. Nugs on a back to back. Bucks Cavs are tough.

I am thinking 2-5 is likely. We probably beat the Wolves and the Pels once out of the 2 tries. The rest are solid losses imo. We could surprise and win another 1 or maybe 2 if we are extremely lucky and there are injuries involved or something, or getting Conley back, etc. But the very best I think we could hope for would be 4-3, with 2-5 most likely. But really, with this team, anything from 0-7 to 7-0 is within the realm of possibility. We just don't know what we are going to do from game to game. At least we know one thing, it will be fun to watch for the most part.

Tough stretch. Thus far we have an awesome record against top tier teams, and our biggest issues are dropping games to the likes of Pistons, Knicks and Rockets.

Imagine if we dont drop those 3. 17-9 looks a whole lot better than 14-12.

That being said, I see 2 or 3 wins from those home games and 0 or 1 from those very tough road games.. so best case scenarion maybe 4-3, worst 2-5.

Tank is on process. Seems that DA and staff realize that we are good but not good enough. No interest to ended 6-10 and loose at Play in or first round. Manage players smartly ( as they did tonight) and we will be bottom 6-7. Get one lucky draft and one good FA and we back on track !!

The Jazz are going to be in the 6-11 cluster for most of the season and they can choose to trade to get better or trade to get worse depending on the available options.

Uhh, we just took a mostly healthy Nuggets team to clutch minutes without our two best players. I dont htink anyone has realized we arent good enough.

My guess is based on the fact that Mike and JC could have play, Lauri maybe.... but i might be wrong. Time will tell.
