As of tonight with Washington beating Minnesota, we're back again to where we ended last season; worst record in the league. A record of 10-32 (.238), is there anything to hope for toward the future? I guess at least the Draft Lottery/Draft will be fun.

I promise you, the plan was to finish this season bad all along. They could have put together a better team but they didn't. Once we shed some bad contracts and add some good free agents and high draft picks we will be okay. Cho knows what he is doing. Just relax.

I agree with you. Im not mad that we're losing. I was going into the season knowing we're not going to win a lot of games and I was really hoping to land a high draft pick again (Im a bad fan). I just dont have that feeling of knowing that we can do more than just build through the draft.

Prospects that comes out today are not like a few years back anymore. You dont have that Lebron, Carmelo, CP3 that comes out and give you your Franchise player to build a competitive team with.

Kemba, MKG, and these 2013 players are very good players, but not that Franchise player you're looking for. After the 2013 Draft, we'll have the pieces to build around a Franchise player. But then, we're missing that "FRANCHISE PLAYER" that we're building the team around. I just hope that we can shed some money and go after a STAR.

OKC were very very lucky that when they were drafting high, they landed KG, Westbrook and Harden. We're not even close to there yet. We dont even have a player of that caliber on this team yet. Kemba? Im not sure.

I think it's been the plan all along to keep sucking until the 2014 draft. Get your superstar in Wiggins/Parker, build around one of them, with Kemba, MKG, etc.

If Wiggins can be Charlotte's Durant type draft pick, they could even package Kemba or MKG with picks/players to trade for a star to compliment Wiggins and Kemba/MKG. Either way, I don't think the 2013 draft will give the Bobcats anything to really build around Get a guy like Noel or Len and suck it up again next year to land the big prize.

I'm not taking contracts into effect here either, or Portland's 1st rounder in 2013, but just for shits and gigs...

Kemba, Wiggins, MKG, and Noel would give one hell of a young nucleus to build around. That group could lure in some FA, or at least Charlotte would have decent trade chips to bring in a star player.

That will be awesome to build a team of Kemba, MKG, 2013(Noel, Len, Zeller, Shabazz, or McLemore), and Wiggins or Parker.

That 2014 Draft is going to be the best draft In a long while if the prospects comes out like everyone assume.

Thing is, how long can we keep sucking? I don't think it'll be a great idea tanking another season in 2014, which we should do for a player of Wiggins caliber. It's the right move but for the fans, it's not. If MJ can suffer a 2014 season
of having no fans in the arena, I'm fine. I just don't think he can.

The only thing we have to worry about is The Angel of Stern rigging the lottery so we don't get the player that we want. We all know if the Kings are sold this year that they will get the 1st pick in the 2013 draft. Gotta create some buzz for the new team in Seattle.

Stern would do well to rig the #1 pick for the Charlotte Hornets.
