NBA teams tanking or rebuilding?

"Tanking" has been a buzzword this season in the NBA, what with a talented 2014 draft class coming and teams such as the Philadelphia 76ers placing little emphasis on winning now. But new commissioner Adam Silver refuses to use the word, instead calling the process of trading veterans for picks, young players and cap room "rebuilding." No matter the term, it certainly is a polarizing subject. It's no fun to watch your team lose, but it's also hard to deny the success of some recent rebuild/tank jobs, not to mention the fact that certain moribund teams (Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks) actually tried to make the playoffs. What say you?
