I understand that many of us have a strong feeling that we are purposely thanking for that other prize. Not a championship but the no #1 draft pick. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for it to get Anthony Davis and continue what Rich Cho has started. But I still can't honestly believe that the players would be involved in playing half- heartedly so they can get help next year. You mean they don't have confidence in themselves. But do we suspect the coaches are not trying to coach each game to the best of his abilities. Maybe, if Paul has time to give his son the reigns and allow him to get experience even if he become head coach here or elsewhere. If this is the case, I know the players have to suspect this and are the ok with this. This would explain, Boris Diaw lack of motivation, why would he to stay here if 1. he is not in the future plans of this team and 2. playing to lose every night has to play on your psyche. I can understand the FO being in on this with MJ going in the closet and screaming with every lost and trying to keep his composure. Let discuss and keep it civil.
