    Also, why the HELL do they keep drafting or signing Power Forwards/ Centers?

    This is who they have on their roster

    Giannis Antentknirfjlf (However the hell you spell that last name)
    John Henson
    Ersan Ilyasova
    Larry Sanders!
    Ekpe Udoh
    Zaza Pachulia
    Miroslav Radlujicav

    Just don't make no sense!
    A lot of the good players are very young. This is the first year I feel we have potential to tank. I would love for them to just start tanking and build around Henson and Sanders. Also, love what I have seen from Giannis so far and I think he has star potential. Jennings and Ellis were garbage and not having them around will be nice. Both of these guys seemed to decide the fate of the team night in and night out. Now I just hope for Wiggins!

    As for the bolded part, that is an excellent question. Our GM and Owner both have a hard on for post players.

    Re: The Tankers and the History Makers (NBA)

    I read this article back in July and found it really interesting to see how the Rockets, with Daryl Morey as their GM, found a way to get from the middle of the road to a top team in just two years without tanking.

    I don't know if Morey has a secret plan the entire time or he just does random wheeling and dealings and ends up a winner.

    Re: The Tankers and the History Makers (NBA)

    On the march for 72-10

    Indiana (7-0)
    San Antonio (5-1)
    OKC (4-1)
    Minnesota (4-2)
    Phoenix (4-2)

    On the march to 9-73
    Utah (0-7)
    Sacramento (1-5)
    Denver (1-4)
    Brooklyn (2-4)

    The Pacers are looking really good. Paul George has turned into a superstar and that team defense is impressive. On the other end, the Jazz look terrible. They desperately need Trey Burke back.

    Everyone else has at least 1-3 losses

    Re: The Tankers and the History Makers (NBA)

    On the march for 72-10

    Indiana (9-1)
    San Antonio (9-1)
    Portland (7-2)
    Miami (7-3)
    LA Clippers (7-3)

    On the march to 9-73
    Utah (1-10)
    Milwaukee (2-7)
    Washington (2-7)
    Sacramento (2-6)

    The Pacers suffered their first loss and the Jazz got their first win. The top teams are beginning to emerge like most everyone expected (OKC, Miami, San Antonio, etc). The teams we though would tank (76ers, Suns, Celtics, Lakers, Magic) have not gone into free fall mode yet. However, the worst team in the NBA might be the Jazz's to lose.

    Re: The Tankers and the History Makers (NBA)

    I try to take full advantage of DirecTV's free week when the season starts.

    Watched a lot of Clippers and they are great on the break with Chris Paul dealing. I'd still be suspicious of their playoff chances but maybe that's where having Doc will pay off.

    Re: The Tankers and the History Makers (NBA)

    On the march for 72-10. AT this point in the season, The Bulls were 10-1.

    Indiana (12-1)
    San Antonio (12-1)
    Portland (12-2)
    Miami (10-3)
    OKC (8-3)

    On the march to 9-73. At this point in the season, the 76ers were 1-20
    Utah (1-13)
    Milwaukee (2-10)
    Brooklyn (3-9)
    New York (3-9)

    A major surprise team currently are the Portland Trailblazers who are on a 10 game winning streak. That winning streak ties with the Spurs for the longest winning streak this season (Spurs are currently on a 10 game winning streak as well).

    The Jazz are still god awful, but the return of Trey Burke might help the offensive flow of that team. They are one of the lowest scoring teams on the NBA at 89.6 points a night. That ties them with Charlotte and puts them just above Milwaukee who scores only 89.4 points a game. Speaking of Milwaukee, this team will be picking a high lotto pick. They are terrible.

    Brooklyn and New York are playing really bad basketball and there really is not much they can do about it. Both teams are over the cap or really close to breaching it. They both have traded away multiple draft picks in future drafts. These two teams are going to be mediocre or bad for the next 2-3 years. NYK are probably in the worst position because they do not have a first round draft pick until 2018!
