You must give a damm for what I believe because your commenting on something that wasn't directed to you. I still appreciate your posts, it's a forum after all. As far as getting Bagley I would be thrilled!!! He's my favorite out of the bunch as of right now. As a matter of fact it's looks like there're will be at least 5 or so really good players at the top of the draft, I think the Kings will get one of them. The post was about what's the difference between what Philly did and what the Kings are doing? I to expect them to try, I can't think of any professional team that doesn't do that. Not being an ass but can you educate me on the last team that didn't try? Are you telling me professional athletes would not try and risk their spot in the league and future pay? I don't think that happens. Trading Cousins wasn't just about tanking but I hope Vlade had the vision to understand that trading a superstar will get you worse today but also get you a better draft pick. Did you expect them to be better with Cousin's off the team? What do you call intentionally making your team worse to acquire young talent and future picks? I was all for moving in that direction, there were many reasons to trade Cousins and we all know them. When you trade a superstar most of the time you get worse and sink lower into the standings or tank to the bottom. I don't think Pacers or Bulls got better when they traded Butler and Geroge, they're going to tank right to the bottom of the standings.
