There's no more tanking. There's a new lottery system starting in 2019. You could lose all you want but it's not gonna help much in terms of landing that top pick.

It seems a lot of LGers still refer to tanking but the lottery system has been changed starting this year so any teams that are bad are genuinely bad since there's not much incentives to losing anymore.

its still tanking

right now
Atlanta, NY, Chicago, Cle, Phoenix have 13 wins and under

you want to be in top 4 to get a better chance at #1 pick

Top 4 have the same chance at #1 pick
Bottom 3 has same chance to get top 3 pick
Worst team has 100% chance of top 5 pick

Washington has 19 wins

That's a terrible decision.

Chandler at this point of his career is a situational player/defender who should be limited to 10 minutes a game. Offensively he's not a threat above the rim, and doesn't have any skills.

Starting him over Mcgee or Zu is just silly.

That's a panic starting lineup by Luke. He's praying that it helps the team start off with energy tonight. It's really wack because once Lebron is back, McGee will have to be re-inserted to the starting lineup because of how well he meshed with Bron.

I was hoping to see Zubac getting the start. He's the Center that's been playing the best ball the last several games.

Warriors scored 51 on the Thuggets in the first Q for those that think the Nugs are legit

Regular season paper tiger.

They will rack up regular season wins but one and done in playoffs.

I'm okay with these changes for tonight. McGee hasn't been the same since he came back from pneumonia. Chandler is a vocal leader that they need. I'm okay with kcp starting over hart.

KCP for Hart 100% at least for now so Josh can get his mojo back. Ty for McGee is a bit more of a concern since that’s a significant loss of athleticism. We shall see...

I don’t think I have the heart to watch the Will Luke Be Fired game.

Because I think he could be fired with an L tonight.
