As we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014, it is tradition to begin to think about our goals and aspirations for the New Year. We often formulate a list of resolutions, a plan of attack, for the upcoming year. I decided to team up with my good friend and fellow NBA addict Nolan Block to find what each NBA team’s top New Year’s resolution will be. In Part 1, we will look at the Eastern Conference from the bottom of the standings to the top.
Milwaukee Bucks- Lose at All Costs
Kevin– Despite widespread disdain for this approach, tanking is the best way to turn around a franchise’s fortunes. Milwaukee currently holds the worst record in the league at 6-23. They are statistically the worst offensive team in the league, scoring 95.8 points per 100 possessions, per NBA.com. What’s more, they are flat out painful to watch. Unlike a lot of other teams in the “tank zone,” Milwaukee looks like they are trying, they just don’t have the pieces to get wins. Wouldn’t their best bet be to tank and hopefully land a franchise changing player in the upcoming draft? How much more interesting would the Bucks be if they could pair Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins with the Greek Freak?
