“Riggin for Wiggins” is just one slogan the 2014 NBA Draft and its potential prospects have created for teams tanking in March and April. Bill Simmons may or may not have gotten carried away with them last night. Check it out:
I can’t say much, especially when I’ve always thought about tweeting “play like Shart for Smart”, so I saved it for my blog. Nice. That’ll boost my credibility.
But if we could go back in time, I’d also make slogans for teams that tried to stay good in the short term in exchange for a dent in the future. Here they are. Read if you dare:
Washington Wizards: So distraught without Gortat.
Charlotte Bobcats: Understand the rationale for Big Al.
New Orleans Pelicans: Turn away as we trade for Holiday.
Detroit Pistons: Happily writhe for Josh Smith.
Dallas Mavericks: Overzealous for Ellis.
If none of these worked for you, I apologize. Proceed to jump through the laptop and hit me with a frying pan.
