Chris Forsberg is the latest to weigh in on the "tank vs. win" discussion. Here's a brief blurb on his take, but take some time to read the rest at the link.
So our advice to Celtics fans is simple: Embrace winning. Isn't it better to establish a winning culture and identify the known building blocks for the team's future rather than roll the dice for a mere chance at the unknown? Remember that the Celtics have enough draft picks -- nine first-rounders over the next five years -- and young assets that if they desire to trade their way up the draft board in the future, they might even be able to do it. They've got tradable assets and trade exceptions that will let them infuse talent into their core.
I still feel like we'll wind up in the lottery this year but I'm also still all about giving full effort and trying to develop that winning culture. I guess that makes me a bit of a fence straddler on this subject but oh well.
Please forgive the utter lack of creativity on this post. I just have topic fatigue. I need a new angle.
