Another game slathered in "you-don't-get-Bogut-yet" irony. Look for Kaman and Landry to pad their stats. DLee has been fouling out on 40+ minutes the last couple games. I don't mind Jax letting him rack up stats and teach rookies in a lost season, but let's not blow out DLee and have him get hurt too...

Well a loss here would be good for the tank effort.

Detroit, New Jersey and Toronto have all won already today so there is some ground to gain with a loss.

Yes, well a loss would be good..but I don't think the players are really thinking "tank"..I think their recent losses have been because they were unable to win..not because they were trying to lose. They will try to win this one..and most of the other games. I wouldn't be surprised if they do win this one because it doesn't seem like they are trying to let off the gas peddle. It would be hard for anyone to go half-ass during any game because they are trying to tank the included. Do you think Jackson is saying "okay, don't win this..we can't win this" I don't.

No, I don't like the tank mentality at all. It is one of the worst thing about pro sports.

However, when the management has taken away some of your best players, and the best players you have are not playing for the rest of the season, getting excited about a high draft pick is almost all you look forward to.

I really hope the guys who do play play well and learn a lot about the game, hopefully they can all contribute in some way next year.

Wohoo... way to go NO in helping us win our pick back.
Teams that are closing in:
Det 18W
Sac 17W
NJ 17W
CLev 17W
Toronto 17W

we only need 2 of them to pass us, and we have a brutal April coming up. With that said, I don't know that any of those teams are good enough to win enough games to do it....
