Are the Milwaukee Bucks on their way to tanking the rest of this NBA season? Some of their fans hope so.
On Interstate-43 in Milwaukee the people at Saveourbucks.com have purchased a billboard urging the team to essentially tank the rest of the season in order to get a high draft pick next year.
The draft will likely be one of the best in recent memory, with Duke’s Jabari Parker, Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins and Kentucky’s Julius Randle headlining the possible draftees.
There have been public cases in the past where team's fan bases have pleaded for their teams to tank a season, including the Indianapolis Colts in 2011 with their "Suck For Luck" campaign. The Colts eventually landed quarterback Andrew Luck from Stanford with the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
