Sunscast Episode #9: The Case For And Against Tanking For Picks

In this week's episode of the Sunscast podcast we talk about the changes to the Phoenix Suns starting lineup with Markieff Morris asking to go back to the bench and Josh Childress being allowed to showcase his skills and play to his strengths as a slasher and creator. We also discuss the revised expectations for the Suns season.

Mostly though, in this episode hosts Seth Pollack and Bryan Gibberman argue fiercely for and against the idea that the Suns should tank so they can rebuild through the draft.

Gibberman argues that the only way to eventually compete for an NBA title is to spend years being bad enough to get top draft picks. Pollack argues that losing is losing and you can't gear your entire strategy around losing the most possible games.
