TANK TANK TANK
Cody Zeller or Nerlens Noel next to KG???
Why not tank? this team will not "flip a switch"
Demarcus Cousins in not the answer
We dont have trade pieces to get a player to help push us...Rondo is our only chip
Were a middle of the pack team, not a contender, but not lottery
Theres atleast 5 quality players in this draft
TOP 5 PICK IS GOOD TO ME
Teams generally don't tank when they have a franchise player. Right now, the management believes Rondo is the guy
Unless Ainge comes in with a curve ball (or gets fired in the coming weeks) don't waste too much time scouting Shabazz
Tanking it isn't a sure science and no way this roster would do it. Guys like pierce and kg couldn't get paid to do it and neither of them will be trades until their contracts expire/retirement. Plus i dont think with this roster, even if they 'tank' it, would be worse then a number of the terrible teams in the nba.
You don't necessarily need the #1 pick, just look at what the Rockets did. After barely missing the playoffs, they blew up the whole roster, massed a bunch of mid-first round picks, and they're already back in the playoff hunt with James Harden.
Ainge could do a full rebuild right now without making the fans suicidal and wasting a whole year. Trading for a star right away is a safer bet than the OKC model, which every team is trying to do now. In fact there's so many pathetic teams right now tanking isn't really viable
Pierce and KG will not tank. That's why they need to be traded. Pierce needs to go to the Lakers and KG to Philly. Then the C's can start the rebuild.
I don't think they really have to tank, just keep playing the way they are right now and they'll be sending DA to lift up the C's card on lottery selection night...

GET OFF YOUR HEELS BILL !!!
They kept this team together not becaus ainge believes this team has a solid chance...but its a way to keep the pink hats happy/milk this core for as long as possible ($$).
What SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED...And This is VERY realistic...
Last season was the PERFECT time to rebuild. Ray/PP/KG all expiring contracts and all were worth something.
Last season the c's were so close to trading ray/pp in seperate deals that would have landed the #6 pick AND Mayo (Deal so close to completion they called ray)..Yet it fell apart at the last second? even IF ainge had to sweeten the pot a bit (trade pp/21st Pick)
With that 6th pick, The most sense would have been too draft Drummond imo, even with his less than impressive season at uconn. He was a projected beast the season before and with his size? Deff worth the pick at #6.
SF- Mayo (small for SF, but atleast it gives the c's a tradeable piece who has value).
that team would be terrible, and it would get us yet another top 10 pick.
Trade Mayo/the top 5 pick/'14 top 5 protected first for Noel?
You would be looking a Noel/Drummond front court

No, get the 8th seed and give Miami hell.

Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.
I highly doubt kg and pp will be traded. They will retire together at the end of the season if the struggles continue and that is when u will all get your rebuilding.
I understand a bad record does not mean the #1 pick, but they have a good shot if they keep losing like they are.
20+ years from now I and others will look back @WMXXX and say remember when Brock Beat The Undertaker? More people will remember his only loss more than those 21 Straight wins.
