As we enter the first round of the NBA Playoffs, you have to acknowledge the success of the Philadelphia 76ers. A team that three or four years ago was one of the worst teams in the league.
As the Sixers continue to progress, many NBA teams may now consider to “tank” their seasons to see if they can repeat what the Sixers have done. If that is an option, how will this effect the NBA.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver recognizes the issue and has been working on trying to resolve the issue. At one point in time, he even sent out a memo in regards to the issue to all 30 NBA teams.
No one knows when, or how the issue will be resolved, but let’s hope the integrity of the game stays intact.
