There aren't any guarantees in tanking either Cleveland has Irving and is still struggling. Charlotte, sac, Toronto, just a few teams that have been lottery teams for years now with no indications of improving.
The worst five teams in the league are just far worse than the next group of teams. We are just stick in the second to the notion cats gory and it is way harder to get out of that type of rut than the one we are in now. Fortunately the tiers better than us are far better so we are in that unique situation where we don't have to be absolutely horrible in order to draft in the top 10. What makes the situation even better is that there isn't a clear cut favorite in the draft and the top of the draft will have some very serviceable players. Hennigan see's this and it's why he isn't hell bent on gutting a roster for the "next lebron". All this suck talk is growing old everyone should just relax and enjoy the wins. We aren't winning 40 games or getting to the playoffs. Even if we do who cares ill be cheering for my team. If people want to pick in the top 3 every year I'm sure Charlotte wants some fans and their season ticket are probably cheap too. The magic will bounce back one way or the other.
