Portland Trail Blazers vs. Charlotte Hornets Preview

In what may become known as the tankiest game of all time, the Portland Trail Blazers slink into Charlotte to face the Hornets in a game neither team wants to win.

I take that back: the PLAYERS want to win, but neither franchise does. These teams have combined for fewer wins than the Houston Rockets have by themselves, and oh brothers and sisters, they are STOKED about it... the organizations, not the players. Which is what’s weird about tanking: NBA players are so competitive (save for the Jontay Porter’s of the world) that you literally have to make them sit out with fake injuries before they’d be willing to lose on purpose.
