Exactly. But some people wanna believe stats.
Stats don't lie but it is deceiving. It don't tells everything. Hendo is worth no more than 6 mil.

Stats may be similar, but Mayo played with talented players throughout his career. Hendo been on the bobcats. Anything, you could argue that Hendo should have had better numbers.

I'm not sure. The Jazz is still a pretty good team. They could end up being like a Portland team last season where most people thought was going to be a bad team and surprised some of how good they actually were.

They have a very good core: Trey, Hayward, Favors, and Kanter. I think we'll still have a hard time playing them. Favors is a very underrated PF playing behind Al and Paul. Kanter has showed some promising game last season. Remember his 22 boards vs. us?

They're bad but not Sixers bad.

I think about 10 teams are  playing just to lose for a top pick, I wouldn't be surprised now if the Cats make the playoffs with a terrible record.

I'm sure the Bobcats is one of those 10 teams playing to lose for a top pick. Cho ain't dumb.

I highly doubt we would have signed big Al

 

 

Having a new coach and Jefferson will probably win us 15+ more games from last season.

Even though Durant was in his 2nd season and Westbrook in his rookie year, lets remember that OKC only managed to win 23 games in the 08-09 season. That's with two of the best players in the NBA right now. What makes Charlotte fans so worried about us adding Al Jefferson? He's not going to come in and put us in the Playoffs.

Charlotte is still a young and inexperienced team. We'd be very lucky if we sneak in 30 wins. There are going to be more bad than good this upcoming season bc we're so young and haven't even learned how to win or put games away yet. If you're a Buzzcats fan, look forward to no less than a Top5 pick next season. We can talk about making the no8 seed in the East in 2014, but not now. That'd be wishful thinking.

We'd be lucky to win 5 more games with Al. We don't have enough talents on the team right now to even be a 30-35 wins team.

Mavs' post-Dwight interest in Bynum is legit. They ARE pursuing him. Yet it's been made clear they'll make detailed/careful evaluation first

Lots of teams seem to be tanking: Jazz, 76ers, Celtics, Magic (trying Oladipo at PG- wut), Kings (traded away Evans- got Vasquez, a decent player no doubt, in return), Bucks (seem content to let Ellis go, have yet to re-sign Brandon)

Yea, but if you compare their rosters to ours you wouldn't be able to tell the differences. We're no better than they are.
