Should the Boston Celtics Still be Tanking?

New, comments

It's been the consensus that the Celtics should be tanking since the KG and Pierce trade in June. After beating a good Western Conference team on national television, it begs the question, should this team still be tanking?

While the idea of not contending for a franchise cornerstone at the top of the upcoming NBA draft seems insane, so is the idea of not pushing this young and enticing Celtics team to its limits. Jimmy Toscano and Jared Weiss debate the merits of both approaches.
