We know from hearing the hot takes of basketball minds and writers all across this country ’tis of thee that the Sixers are a disgrace for tanking but Phil Jackson’s Knicks are not because it is “a superior tank to the Sixers’ intentional tank.” But what does Jackson himself think of his Knicks? This Knick’s season is “like nothing I’ve seen before,” the superior-tanking genius said. “So far, my experiment has fallen flat on its face.”

But maybe he’s being too hard on himself. Is it really worse to try to win and totally fail than to start from scratch and evaluate your growing talent to build a solid base for the future? One of those plans is “superior,” but it’s not Jackson’s.

    It’s already happening! The improvement is there for those watching games (or part of it there if you’re reading this site or filthy.com) and showing some patience as a fan.

    This team is not even close to scratching the surface yet, and the future is bright, but you have to be a self thinker and capable of thinking things through – two skills not known to be prevalent in Philly fans, or the national media.

    Let whoever say whatever, just enjoy this team growing up in front of you and ignore the idiots.

    Go 6’ers

    Ohio State Sg/pg D’Angelo Russell is the 2nd coming of Golden State pg Stephen Curry,and hopefully he’ll be drafted by the Sixers.
