I’d imagine being a Milwaukee Bucks fan isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do. But currently riding the worst record in the NBA (5-20) and facing potential relocation rumors, an already tough task is becoming even more difficult – so difficult in fact that fans are urging the team to tank.

Yep – that’s right. Knowing their season is a lost cause, the good folks from SaveOurBucks.com decided to purchase a local billboard telling the team to tank – even though technically they won’t use that dirty word:

The folks at SaveOurBucks.com wouldn’t call it “tanking.” They’ve got a multi-part plan for the Bucks to return to competitiveness and stay in Milwaukee, and it involves front office moves and fan support. But the key is to eschew the Bucks’ usual strategy of band-aid acquisitions in favor of trading away veterans, letting young players get minutes, and lose their way into a top pick in next year’s stacked draft. So: tanking.

Small market teams that find success are often built due to finding a superstar in the draft. Add in the fact that we’re likely to see one of the more top heavy drafts we’ve seen in some time and there’s no better time than the present to stink if you’re an NBA team.
