Its beyond optimism for me at this point...

I hope we don't do anything in free agency. Anything major anyways. I just want to keep the tea we have and really develop the guys we currently have. We will have to get a top 5 pick next year. That class should be loaded with talent too.

Another blind optimism thread. You guys are going to be sorely disappointed. Worst team in NBA history last year and have so far only added Ben Gordon and two rookies.

Shouldn't we be skeptical? Let's wait until they show us something on the basketball court

Kemba, Bismack, and Mullens will be a year older and more experienced. Ben Gordon is something we didnt have last season(great shooter). MKG and Taylor are rookies but will contribute. Free agency has just started.

I can easily see why people are so optimistic. It has nothing to do with them thinking we are going to win a lot of games. Has everything to do with this team is going in the right direction.

In the past the team made medicocre moves to remain..average. This included trades for Jason Richardson, Diaw/Bell, and Stephen Jackson. The 'Cats also drafted DJ Aug over Brooke Lopez and refused to play younger draftees. These moves showed the lack of consistency in the front office plan and the coach.

At least now the 'Cats have drafted to a plan for two years consecutively, made and not made moves in free agency synonymous with rebuildling, and hired a coach centered around developing thier young talent.

The 'Cats are making the right moves for the first time in franchise history and people are taking notice and are pumped!

While im estatic about the young guys we're bringin in, I wouldnt say this is the first time we've made the right moves. We've fielded better teams than what we have now and made the playoffs. We're basically starting from scratch to get back to that playoff level. It is good we're sticking to the plan and not taking on bad contracts.

While I am optimistic about the future, this team as it stands now could very well be right back in the same spot next year. I just want to see a team with a youthful energy and spirit that actually competes night in and night out, much like the 23-59 Sonics team. If they do that this year, regardless of record, I'll be happy.

In this league, all it takes is one star on your team and you have a chance. Might not win a title but it could draw others to your team. With MKG, Biyombo, and Kemba, you have 3 guys who hate losing, but they all have potential to be really good in this league. When we had Gerald Wallace, our mistake was we went after the likes of Diaw and Stephen Jackson, instead of being smart and drafting and developing better.

I look at what the Nets are doing and I think its very smart. Deron/Gerald/Howard would be a heck of a trio. Ive always said about the NBA - you can find scorers anywhere, but its rare to find stars that want to be good defensively. Wallace was that.

Biyombo and MKG will be that.

Really? There's no guarantee that any of those three will be there next season. But, being in Brooklyn, they can afford to take gambles like that. If the Bobcats did that, the results would be catastrophic for the franchise.
