For whatever reason, people seem to lack an understanding of what tanking is. This kind of makes sense, given how rarely the Los Angeles Lakers have put their fans through that experience, but one would hope that after four years of this stuff, they’d understand the concept a little better.
Just so we’re all clear, tanking is when teams play worse players with the intention to lose on purpose. By this definition, it’s literally impossible to imply the Lakers are tanking anytime D’Angelo Russell is on the court. Same goes for Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle, etc.
