Picking 22nd puts us at around the 8th best team in the entire league. Teams that successful, and their fans, do not hope to tank "to hopefully become good one day"...... they are already good.

I was addressing the idea that we "squeak into 8th place" and get kicked out fast. That puts you drafting 15th or so. Drafting 15th is a far, far cry from 33rd.
