Well another season has come and gone, this one was full of high's and low's but when push came to shove, the Bobcats truly did fight in every game they played (a lot of the time they were just outmatched).

The team finished on a three game winning streak and in doing so they avoided the NBA cellar as the "worst team in the NBA name" now belongs to the Orlando Magic.

Now to the offseason, I want to see each of your ideal offseason's and once we have all the submissions, I will post a poll and we can vote on the best one.

Let's see them.

Oh and Go Cats... erm I mean Hornets!!! :cool:

First thing first, rebrand back to the Charlotte Hornets!

Next, win that no.1 pick in the lottery this year. Take Ben McLemore, one who I truly think can become an All Star player in the future and a tremendous player to pair with Kemba and MKG. I also believe McLemore is a better SG than Beal and Waiters of last year draft.

I'm not sure how big we're going to make a splash into Free Agency, and I wouldnt really care. I want to suffer one more year for a better draft class in 2014. I hope we land Portland's pick next year too.

My Ideal Off-season:

Resign/Walk

- resign Josh McRoberts
- resign Jannero Pargo
- walk Gerald Henderson (only resign if he takes 5.5 mil or less)
- walk Byron Mullens
-walk Reggie Williams
- Amnesty Tyrus Thomas
- walk Ben Gordon
- walk Gana Diop

Draft: ( we are only getting 1 pick)

Ben McLemore- Great shooter who can pass and rebound. Fits Very well with Kemba and MKG

FA:

sign- Paul Millsap
sign- Nikola Pekovic
sign- Anthony Morrow
sign- Brandon Rush

Line-up

PG- Kemba, Sessions, Pargo
SG- McLemore, Morrow, Brandon Rush
SF- MKG, Taylor
PF- Millsap, Biz, Jeff Adrian
C- Pekovic, McRoberts, Haywood

Trade Gordon for someone else's bad contract and a future 1st rounder.

Get better and continue to develop talent through next season, then finally hit the lottery in 2014 with 3-4 picks in the first round.


Playoff's for at least 10 years from that draft and 3-4 picks in the top 15.

Yeah McRoberts over Mullens for sure. I like Hendo and if he'll take something fair, keep him. We need bigs, bad. At least sign one that can come in so we don't get manhandled down there.

Don't do anything to be competitive next year. Sucks for fans to see another year of terrible basketball, but it needs to be done.

very interesting. I'd also like to see us do whatever we can to hurt Portland by signing
their good players, blocking any progress we can, so that we get their pick next year, and
hopefully make it a lottery pick.

That right there is a playoff team IMHO...a 6,7,8 seed though.

KMan is the only one that has given an offseason scenario and it's a damn good one at that, anyone else?

We have to suck for at least one more year. Still no "superstar" on the team. Kemba and MKG (and Biz for that matter) are VERY interesting pieces to the puzzle, but we don't have that one guy yet that we need. Gotta hold off from the treadmill-type signing (Jefferson, Millsap, Pekovic, etc) until we get the guy that's gonna carry this team.

Yeah what kman said would be a good off season...and as also said, the Bobcats would be looking at a 6,7,8 seed, no lottery pick, and a ceiling of where they were during the Gerald Wallace years. It's the NBA...gotta find a Superstar, if not 2. Having Kemba, MKG, and a couple of decent but overpriced FA signings will do nothing but set the franchise back or turn them into the Atlanta Hawks. No thanks.

Thanks guys, I believe that would create a solid core of players and we would still have 3 picks in 2014 to maneuver with or get 3 more solid players to add to that core.

Which would be the worst possible thing for us to do IMO. Having 5-6 good guys, you're the Pacers. You're not winning a title. Even with 3 potential picks next year, if they're all out of say the Top 5, we more than likely still don't land a superstar. Nobody is trading down with Wiggins/Parker sitting there.
