Do draftees tank on purpose

Do draftees tank on purpose

Postby L8KERS4LIFE on Mon May 15, 2006 12:59 pm

Do you think it has ever happened: Where a draftee wanted to go to a certain team and tanked some workouts so he could fall to that team.
Example: Good players go to the bad teams if he falls a little he could play for a better team usually after the 15th pick the teams are better.
Just wondering!

I know that Gerald Green didnt want to go to Toronto so he avoided their workouts and even claimed he wouldnt show up. Stupid move considering it hit his stock hard.

I think Lamar refused working out with the #1 team in the year he was drafted.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

BEST VIDEO EVER ... AND AND THE SECOND BEST.

I think they could reword the sentence about the Lakers to Phil Jackson like him, but the Lakers just don't have the pieces to move up. This is definitely a type player who Phil would be wanting the Lakers to draft, if they could. He'd be very good in the triangle. He's a left handed Deron Williams.[/quote]
