Countdown to the Hornets!

Kind of Sentimental for me that tonight is probably the last bobcats game.   Not going to be devastated and excited to pull for the Charlotte Hornets next season! But still kind of sentimental at the same time.

Go HORNETS!!!!

Let's hope we find a way to get Detroit's pick. That would help heal a lot of pain.

I might be one of the few, but I don't want Detroit's pick this year.

The best player you're probably going to get a number 8 is Gary Harris, and I don't see that much more of a difference between Harris who could go 8th and Hairston who good go 28th.

I'd rather wait one more year and hope they are in the top five in 2015 so we can grab my man Kelly Oubre.

I still need to get by the team store and get me a Hornets Tshirt.

I bought a hat back when they released but gave it to my little cousin shortly after.

No sharing this time.

Is it top 5 protected in 2015? That would be nice.

I wouldn't mind Harris or Young tho. Two guys who can really shoot the ball.

I think it's a high chance that we do land that pick: no9 or no10. At least one team outside the top 8 will probably win a top 3 pick.

It's only first overall protected next year.

A Gary Harris would really help this team. I would love to grab him and hairston(no way he makes it past 20 tho). Detroit is a team that could improve drastically as they under achieved this past year with more talent than we have currently on our roster. Wouldnt be surprised if the pick we get from them is at the back end of the lottery if we have to wait another year for it. Either way we can improve this team that is not far off from being very competitive in the playoffs. I love the experience guys like kemba and mkg are getting with this taste of the NBA post season. This series will be a blessing in disguise. This young guys will be very hungry, and they are learning now what it takes to play championship level ball. Go Cats! Go Hornets!

- A team with Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings will never be successful.

- Hairston could easily fall to the end of the first due to character concerns.

Exactly.

I think Detroit will be better next season. If we get that pick this year, it will be the #9th or 10th pick. It probably won't be that good in 2015.

Detroit Pick: Gary Harris / James Young / Nick Stauskas

Portland Pick: Cleanthony Early / PJ Hairston / Zach Lavine / KJ McDaniels / Clint Capela

Dont think Hairston will fall that late. His stock is rising quickly everywhere I look at.

I bought a Bobcats hat today to pay homage.

 

Either way I hope we win.  But a new beginning is exactly what this franchise needs.

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
