In nice shape actually for a young team. Kemba and MKG are keepers. If we can land a top 3 pick in both of the next 2 drafts then were golden. This year maybe add a Zeller, JMM, or Noel then follow that up with Wiggins, Parker, or Randle......:)

tbh, I really have enjoyed watching the hustle that this team brings but two things kill it for me:

Henderson's 18foot jumper to nowhere routine.
Mullens Brick-it-from-Deep routine.

Taking contested long 2s with plenty of time on the shot clock or Mullens just taking 3s in general really grind my gears. There are at least 5 plays a game where I want to throw something through my TV to hit Byron in the head....he's just not a very smart basketball player...but he has greatly improved his hustle on the boards....which has paid big dividends in our two wins up to this point. My frustration with the 3s is really because we are so much weaker down low and we have a 7 footer who wants to be reggie miller...lol

IMO, Hendo is an unnecessary cog to this team and doesn't add much if Taylor can step up and hit some timely 3s as he seems more than capable of playing as good or better D at this point.

Again, just my opinion, but I like overall where they are headed, even though it is an inevitable top 5 pick again this year...

I think with a solid draft next year we could potentially sneak into the playoffs.

I don't have high hopes for this year, but I do like what I see from Kemba and MKG.

Biyombo was a waste of a pick.

I have been tough on Hendo but he has improved. Still I believe he's a better fit for a team like the Lakers coming off the bench. Hendo is not going to be the face of this Franchise. Maybe we could trade him?

I don't follow basketball as much as I used to, but I do watch the games that air. My uninformed opinion is this:

1. Love the youth and energy
2. Solid core to build around
3. Still think the front office is a problem
4. Hope to se them evolve into a contender, I just don't trust the staff to get it done
5. Glad the effort and style is far more watchable
6. I still miss Gerald Wallace

The front office is probably the best it has been in team history. Cho is a great GM and MJ has turned all personnel decisions over to him. The only problem I see is Rod Higgens. He has done an alright job but if it wasn't for him we wouldn't be stuck with Cory Higgens. That guy should not be in the NBA. I know every team has crappy players at the end of the bench but as long as Rod is here there is no way the Bobcats will trade or release Cory. Should never let front office guys put their kids on the team. Needs to be a policy. Unless the kid is a superstar

I guess I'm cautiously optimistic, but still a little skeptical until I see the team make some actual progress.

Im worried that we may win to much, to soon, thus lowering our draft position.

Exactly, Higgins is the only problem in the FO. Gah I can't stand knowing Cory is on the team and the reason why. This isn't high school anymore where the coaches' son always secure a spot on the team.
