Was the pre-lebron season really legitimate??

John Lucas Lambasts the former Cavs front office.

Sources now say that the Cavs tried to tank the 2002-2003 season to acquire lebron james in the draft.  Ex-Coach of the Cavs John Lucas claims that the reason the team did poorly was the front office, purposely tanking the team to lose so they could pickup lebron.  Unsurprisingly Gordon Gund has denied this saying that the team just didn't have chemistry and there is no guarentee of the #1 pick because of the lottery.  This is in fact why the lottery is in place, to stop teams from tanking.  It would interesting to get people's thoughts on this.  Is this a legitimate thing that happened?  Or did the team just want to get younger in a rebuilding year??  Did they force John lucas out because he wasn't tanking the team well enough, or did the team just have bad chemistry??  These are all unanswered questions.  I wonder what everyone's thoughts are.
