Could it be that since Larry Brown has come to town that the Bobcats are the better pro team in town?

Which is easier to juggle. 5 balls or 45 balls?

For me I only like to juggle my two balls :smilielol5:

but seriously, there are many more diva personalities you have to deal with in the NBA and when you only have 5 guys on the court, it can be tougher to get the right personnel together to play effectively

I would rather manage 5 guys though. I have coached all big 3 sports and to me, hoops is much easier from a group perspective.

But in the same vein, one wrong move out of that 5 could destroy a whole team/season, there's a lot more margin for error with 45-53 guys.

That being said. No doubt the Bobcats have had the SUPERIOR front office the last two seasons, thanks to the handling of Pep and Jake's contract. Those moves/non-moves alone are all the proof one needs.

I have coached all 3 as well and would agree about basketball.

I do like that the Bobcats seem to be trying harder to get better. I can't get over the Panthers with their "we have 21 of 22 starters coming back" thing during last offseason and doing nothing in free agency.

What the Bobcats FO has done has been impressive no doubt about it, however... here are the 1st round picks our FO has grabbed in the last decade:

2002: Peppers

2003: Gross

2004: Gamble

2005: T. Davis

2006: DWill

2007: Beason

2008a: Stewart

2008b: Otah

Not to mention several later round picks that turned out being good players(Kalil, Sherod Martin, Barnidge, Charles Johnson) and got good players through trade such as Chris Harris for a 5th round pick, as well as Tank Tyler for a 5th round.

Panthers front office is getting a lot of undeserved hate when really they're responsible for making this team what it is today, a stacked team that has a legitimate shot at winning it all next year. While I admit it's been kind of a rough couple years, but that happens in sports. You can't expect to win it all every year. I love the way the Panthers are headed, and still have full confidence in the organization(this could all change if Fox makes Delhomme starter next year)

Give em a break. Try being a Rams, Lions, Bills, etc fan and THEN you can complain about a bad front office. Carolina has one of the better FO's.

I'm a huge fan of the Bobcats FO. The Panthers FO could learn a lot from them.

The Panthers FO is better when it comes to the draft, and the Bobcats FO is better with FA and trades.

Indeed! That's what I'm saying. Panthers are one of the best in the league at managing the draft.
