After an epic win last night against Warriors South, the Warriors currently sit at the 9th worst record, tied with Cleveland. Games like these really mess with my emotions because on one hand, the playoffs can still be a possibility, whereas on the other hand, I really want that draft pick. This leads to my question, what is the Warriors' plan right now? Do we try to win all and hope for a good trade near the deadline that will hopefully propel us into the playoffs? Or, do we jump on the tank (...bandwagon)? I really do not want to be stuck in NBA purgatory for the next decade. I personally would like the Warriors to tank it all the now, because I know this team cannot make the playoffs with the current roster. And even if the playoffs are a reality, would a clean sweep by Durant and the Thunder be worth passing on a potential franchise player in the draft? Not to me. I'd rather draft a player like Harrison Barnes or Jeremy Lamb and build for the future rather than give it all and hope for at best an 8th seed in a loaded Western Conference.
What do you guys think?
