Not tanking

 

The term "tank" and all other forms of the word are being thrown around a lot.  I just wanted to get my mind right regarding the whole situation.  John Wall is very good, we all know that.  But the sixers arent tanking.  no team in the NBA is tanking (well purposely tanking...some GMs and coaches are so bad its almost like tanking).

So i cant figure out whether everyone uses this term lightly as like "we're tanking te-he...cuz we're so bad" or "we're deliberately losing to get a better chance at a higher pick tankity tank tank."  TAFKAMB used the term in a post and uses it frequently.  i dont know what he thinks about the situation, but i hope he doesnt believe we're actually tanking.  We're just very bad.  And the coaching is almost irrelavent.  If Red Auerbach, John Wooden, and Gregg Popovich morphed into one supercoach and ran the Sixers, He (capitalized for hypothetical greatness)  couldnt make winners out of this team and difference in wins would be negligible.  The pieces to the puzzle are round and dont fit together. 

I guess i just wanted to see if i have it straight about the use of the term "tanking" or if people actually think we/any other team is tanking.  Id like to see evidence based research if u truly believe so.

just for my own comfort, ill say that i wish we would lose every game the rest of the season.  i wanted us to go 0-82 this year.  its just better for the team.
