On July 8, 2010, the entire basketball world was watching ESPN, where superstar free agent forward LeBron James was about to announce where he would spend the next chapter of his career. Instead of returning to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, James famously declared he would be taking his talents to South Beach, joining forces with guard Dwyane Wade and forward Chris Bosh in the hopes of bringing a title to the Miami Heat.

This left the team with an impressive 10-3 record, good for second in the conference, and with four regular season games left, the squad looks to finish strong and march deep into the postseason. However, the Judges cannot afford to lose too many more matches. The team has the necessary unity, talent and depth to thrive as the temperature drops for playoffs, but it will need to maintain its winning ways for the remainder of the regular season.

Farrell’s every move seemed to be under scrutiny, as his team with such high expectations continually underperformed. But it wasn’t always this way — John Farrell once was a symbol of hope.

Some view it as taboo, a despicable strategy that should not even be spoken of out loud, while others view it as the new “normal” in attempting to cobble together a championship roster. Tanking is the art of intentionally building a team of below-average, usually young, players in the hopes that a miserable season will land the team high draft picks in the next season’s amateur draft.
