The notion that a group of players would purposely tank and lose at the professional level is crazy. Why would guys who livelihood depends on stats and playing well purposely play bad?

I once saw Mike Golic answer this very question, and to sum it up, he would of punched the owner/coach/GM in the face if he was asked to play worse, professionals just don't do that.

The entire team tanking is something created by fans to explain the fact that players had reached the point where they didn't give a crap anymore and were just showing up for the pay check. It has nothing to do with the team itself.
