So the end is neigh,
After last nights loss to the Hornets the Jazz seem one step closer to missing the playoffs for a second straight year, and it might not be a bad thing with the Warriors tanking harder than a boozed up Charlie Sheen.
I have little doubt that Kevin O’Connor sits in his plush leather office chair shaking his head as he glance the box scores last night, New Jersey decided to show up against Philly, the Jazz lost another head scratching game and look lottery bound, the Golden State lost yet again.
I know that teams tanking in professional sports is nothing new, I’m a lions fan, I think they have perfected the art since the departure of Bobby Layne. Recent events with the Golden State Warriors interim general managers stated desire to retain their pick as well as the teams almost simultaneous tail spin does raise some ire, I’m sure that is shared by more than just me.
I keep asking myself is there something more that can be done to deter teams from trying to lose or at least appearing to? Then this thought occurred to me.
Personally I’m for a system not unlike the English Premiership currently uses in which the bottom two teams are relegated each year to a lower league while the two top teams in that lower league would be simultaneously promoted.
Granted the idea of the Charlotte Bobcats playing again the Idaho Stampede in the D-League seems rather fitting and hilarious, it would never work for a host of issues, but its a nice thought.
