How can you say they are better? You're talking about a team that in one year has dealt with more contract situations then the Bobcats have dealt with in their entire existence. There are so many great draft picks and great free agents the panthers have brought in. Yes there are some bad decisions but you're dealing with a hell of a lot more people.
-2 1st round draft picks for Sean Gilbert
-"trading" Bill Polian to Indy for 3rd round compensation (Jim Irsay says this is the foundation to Indy's success the past 10 years)
-"extending" Jake Delhomme.
The Bobcats have never made such HORRIBLE decisions EVER. All 3 of those are major reasons why the Panthers have never had sustained success. The Bobcats have never gone the equivalent of 1-15 either.
Bobcats have made the worst draft selections i have ever seen. They have a owner who you constantly praise that is trying to get the hell out of here as fast as he can. There is nothing that makes the bobcats front office better. What cause they are finally in the playoff hunt for the first time? I love the Bobcats but right now they are not run better. They are definitely on the up but no where near the Panthers yet. And if your wonderful owner dumps the team to Postolos there is no telling where this team will stand next year.
The team will stand in Charlotte like it has the past 6 years. Things are on the up and up. As far as I know, Jack, Gerald, and the rest of the gang want to be here and re-signing our studs hasnt been a problem. As far as I know Michael, Larry, & Bob ARE gonna spend money EVERY year and do whats best for the Bobcats, not whats best for the NBA brand
. They are obligated to their fans, and not Bob's owner buddies. As far as I know, the Bobcats have their logo on their home court, and not the NBA's because our owner feels he owes the other owners for life for letting him in the "club".
