NBA Draft 2014: Tanking, The Lotto, and a Small Market response to Free Agent "Super Teams"?

Is tanking dishonorable when one team can vacuum up three franchise players in free agency? - Doug Benc

I finally return to the Phil Naessens' Show (@FlashTennis31) and there is no more "robot voice". So that's a start for sure. I also had two segments, the first on the draft -- tanking, and I made a case against free agent super teams. Sometimes small market teams just NEED a star, even though the brightest ones seem to most always run away. In a way, a 'smart tank' is the only method of star acquisition for some franchises. I don't like tanking, but really, sometimes it is all a franchise has. It's sad. The second segment is a little bit on fantasy basketball. You can catch it all from his page here; I implore you to listen to all of it because there's more NBA talk in it from our SB nation sisters at The Dream Shake as well.

I'm not expert in fantasy bball, but next week you may hear from someone who is. And thank again to Phil for having me on, and to J.R. Wilco of the SB Nation Spurs blog Pounding The Rock. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have even BEEN on this show.
