i agree with KT on jordans attitude. I have always heard the guy is a world class a-hole.


He definitely is.

However, his brother Larry was a really nice guy. I played pick-up ball with him for years at UNCC and did not even know he was MJ's brother.

i just don't want the hornets name and colors back. i care about as much for the hornets brand as i do the bobcats, but at least the bobcats don't have feminine colors

His other brother James was a world class a-hole, too. But he retired from the Army as a Command Sergeant Major, so I guess it came with the job.

I didn't .....and still don't....like the Kemba and Bismack picks.

Kemba is an undersized guard who is not a great shooter. I think he is going to struggle to get his points.

Bismack has so little offensive ability right now. He is a major project.

I still look back at the Augustine pick as the defining moment of this franchise....the reason they are still struggling.

He is a solid guard, but we desparately needed a big man....and Lopes was sitting there. Now he is a 20+ point and 12+ rebound guy. And, we still have no inside game.

We have drafted the same player three times. Felton....Augustine...Walker. We are the Detroit Lions (when they sucked) of the NBA.

Whoa there! I agree that Lopez was the obvious pick (and it was obvious to everyone even at that time), but he sure as hell doesnt average 12 boards a game. Thats been one of the biggest problems with his game the last couple of seasons- he doesnt rebound well and he plays soft sometimes. Would have been a great addition here though.

While I agree that Walker is too similar to play effectively next to DJ, I thought he was the best player left on the board so I dont mind it.

To move a little back on topic, I think it's interesting that, in this entire thread, I don't think one person admitted they actually like the Bobcats name, color scheme, or anything else. It's a pathetic brand, and no one takes it seriously. So we can sit around and wait on Jordan to draft a superstar/nucleus of a successful team, that's fine. But in the meantime we can re-fuel the fire in the fan base at least so that more people are excited about supporting these young guys as they mature. And the Bobjohnsoncats brand just isn't going to cut it.

LOL@"refuel the fire in the fanbase". Go back to charlotteobserver.com with this man. Fire up another petition to MJ. Nobody cares about this anymore. Seriously. Its a lost cause. The Bobcats and the fans who support them are getting along just fine with the team identity. If you cant identify, go root for another team like the sorry ass NO Hornets.

Also, whether or not you think Jordan is an asshole, this SI article from a few weeks ago will make you think a little bit.

http://sportsillustr...93740/index.htm

It's about Pop Herring, Jordan's coach in high school who's most famous for "cutting" Michael from his high school team, which isn't entirely true, apparently.
