Using Relegation To Prevent NBA Tanking
Posted by David Zaring

A little off topic, but now that the local basketball team has used its third top pick in a row to take a center, it looks like another season of tanking is in order in Philadelphia.  As someone has said of the Sixers management team, they're profoundly dedicated to the proposition of winning an NBA championship, no earlier than 2025.

How can we do something about this?  Relegating the three worst teams in the NBA to the D-league would make every game count for every team.  And I think I'd rather see the Albany Patriots or whoever being plucky than whatever weird formation art project will be worked out next year in the Wells Fargo Center.
