In response to aciemvp's comment:
So far wallace's stat line is softer than a sneaker full of s_it
34 minutes 5.5 pts, 3.8 rebs. this is EVEN WORSE than his output last year for the nets.
doesn't he have to have SOME demonstrable functionality for us to be able to get rid of his $10M contract to the perennial/proverbial "contender"?
those who love tanking are going to live to regret it. you ruin the young players on the team who are worth keeping, of which we seem to have a few. it's culture rot.
anyone have a theory on why wallce books 34 mins in the last game and ZERO field goal attempts?
You're mistaken on the reality of tanking. Nobody on this team is "tanking". The coaches and the players are trying to win every game.
We are "tanking" because of two things:
1. Rondo's injury
2. Danny holding back from making short-term moves
3. Inexperience on the roster
Really, the whole "tanking" thing is not a choice. We aren't holding guys back, we aren't giving lack-luster performances. The only purposeful action is Danny not spending that little extra (MLE for example) to sign someone to this team who could help us win.
I agree its culture rot to be horrible for a long time. We are not in danger of that. Next year, we have our Allstar back. We have some of the rotting players gone (Brooks, Hump, Crawford, Bogans). We have salary to sign some impact players and two top draft picks. We are in danger of tanking & culture rot if Danny ships out Green and Rondo this year in anticipation of 3 consecutive years in the lottery to mine for talent. I dont expect that to occur.
