A New Era For The Bobcats? Can It Happen Tonight?

I apologize to you guys because I know this is not the right forum for this. I really just wanted to ask you guys a couple of serious questions involving the Bobcats. I'm a huge NBA fan and I know that the Bobcats don't get any love in the NBA by fans or anything else much like the Carolina Panthers before Cam. To be honest I'm a Lakers fan and I been one my whole life but over the past couple of years I developed some love for the Bobcats and they are now my second favorite team. Are you guys hoping the Bobcats get the #1 overall pick tonight to land Anthony Davis? Do you guys think Anthony Davis can be the Cam Newton for the Bobcats?

I hope we do get the #1 pick. And I hope Davis can be our "Cam" and make our city and fanbase "progress" even further.

Keep believing in and supporting our Bobcats

Davis would be huge for this franchise, I really hope we land the number one pick just so Barnes isn't even an option.

Even if they land Davis the issue will be how do you keep him after his rookie deal. Otherwise you become the Cleveland Cavaliers who landed James and lost him the minute he could bolt to a big market team. The problem with the Bobcats is similar to many small market teams in the NBA. They can't compete with the big market teams for the most part. That is different than the NFL where revenue sharing and hard caps have created more parity across the league.

So no the Bobcats no matter who they get won't have the long term success that Newton will have with the Panthers. For the next few years? Perhaps.....

The Bobcats would be ecstatic to be a good team even if just for a few years.

Lebron could have left sooner than he did. He stayed in Cleveland from 2003 to 2010.

You just have to win 4 NBA championships to keep them around forever.

Like Anthony Davis, Tim Duncan is a once in a lifetime player.

Sad news bobcats fan, but with the fourth pick in the 2012 NBA draft the Charlotte bobcats select.........
