Sad part is that I don't think MJ is purposely tanking anything. He is just that inept at evaluating talent, making trades, adn drafting. Guy how no clue how to run an organization.
it won't get better any time soon.
Unfortunately, you might be right... his track record of assembling teams certainly isn't good.
It scares me to think that Bobcats really thought they had a competitive talent level going into this season... I know they were saying that publicly, because that's what they're going to say, but I mean did they really believe that???
I prefer to think they were purposely tanking the season for a lottery pick based on all the talk about how they believe the only way they will ever get a superstar player in Charlotte is to draft one. I understand the theory, but unfortunately the NBA draft is the biggest crap shoot of all time... you have a much better chance of drafting a complete bust with a lottery pick then you do drafting the next Kevin Durant.
I actually talked myself into the idea at one point that MJ would get CP3 here (with a little help from the league) and that could possibly attract a guy like Dwight Howard.
So I guess we'll all just have to sit around with our fingers crossed and hope the Bobcats get lucky enough to draft a one-in-a-generation talent that can lead them to the promised land.
