With the 2012-13 season mercifully winding down, the Phoenix Suns have no other choice but to embrace tanking games for the remainder of the season.
The playoff picture was out of sight months ago for the Steve Nash-less Suns, and they now occupy the Western Conference basement at 23-54 (four games worse than any other Western Conference team).
As it stands, the Suns are the third-worst team in the entire NBA. They’re already in solid draft position even though the 2013 draft class is shaping up to be the weakest in 13 years.
The chances the Suns draft a franchise player this summer are slim to none. However, inching their way closer to better draft lottery odds is still the way to go from here on out.
So the question is, what five-man lineup gives the Suns the best chance to lose (or perhaps worst chance to win) moving forward? In other words, what is the 2012-13 Suns “All-Tank” team?
