Where are we?

it's fun to be on a 2 game win streak, but we need a top 3 pick this year to secure the other big piece of the puzzle.

Drafting out of the top 10 could mean we continue to build toward mediocrity, which is why Jordan blew up the team

in the first place.

We need some luck in the lottery....and we dang sure deserve it.

Exactly. Winning is fun but really it shouldn't be this year for our own good for the future.

We need to add another major young talented player in the draft next year. We need a Top4 pick.

Bulls get our pick if we don't finish bottom 12 this year - and it wouldn't shock me right now if we didn't. Looks like we won't get the Pistons' pick until 2014 or 2015. Blazers' pick won't be for a while.

Bobcats 3-3 .500

Lakers 3-5 .375

:)

Bobcats look good so far this year. I like the way we're playing. I'm not sure we're a playoff team yet, I think we need another guy. But Kidd-Gilchrist along with Kemba are nice young players to build around.

I didn't realize that.. could be trouble. Did we hire too good of a coach??? lol

I will admit that I was not sold on the MKG pick. I thought his limited offense was too much of a liability to take him. He still has a long way to go on his shot.....but damn that kid has a non-stop motor and hustles to no end. His energy and passion for the game is contagious.

There is just a different vibe on this team. They still need a couple of pieces, but they are playing their asses off.

As of right now, statistically speaking, we are ranked 28th in avg. points against and 10th in avg. points for (ahead of Boston and LA, mind you). That's against some pretty good defenses as well. We're firing on offense. We tighten down on defense and we're looking at finishing the season at above .500 (assuming the offense at least stays where it is). We're also 8th in rebounds.

Honestly, if we can pull it off, it's hard to not want to make the playoffs if our defense can get more middle ground rather than bad (and really, if it wasn't for two really bad games on defense where we gave up like, 126 and 118, in back-to-back games, we would be higher).

Im not worried about getting a top 3-4 pick. Honestly I dont know if the franchise could take another gutpunch like last year. I think we already have our guy in MKG and if kemba could just get consistent we will be good at guard. Im still holding out for biz, i really like the guy and his work ethic.....maybe at least he could be a solid rotaional guy for us if things dont work out. Hendo is who he is imo....a good SG.

Regardless I feel good because cho has made good moves since he has been here. We are also about to have alot of cap room coming up that he can play with.

I think winning is the best thing for this team. Getting a top 5 pick is great, but this team needs Ws. Just get thant stink of last year off.

I don't understand wanting to lose for the benefit of the draft. To me, that's the ultimate pussy play, a true loser mentality.

Because the draft is basically the only way for a small market team to compete (hell, even some larger markets). And a top 3 pick is much much much more valuable than a pick in the 10-20 range.

The NBA is a star driven league and almost all the big stars go at the top of the draft. It is what it is

No star free agents will come here. Knowing that, your left to either draft or develop a star. If your not in the top 1-3 picks in the lottery then finding a franchise player is tough. Choe knows what hes doing so thats a huge plus. Winning the lottery this year or better next season would turn this team into a contender like the Thunder.
