I follow ACC bball but I've never gotten into the NBA and I was thinking about catching some of the Hornets games this year.


Can any of y'all give a quick rundown of the team/roster/future of the franchise?

They are going to sign Kurt Rambis out of retirement.

Next year will be telling towards the future of the franchise.


Young unproven talented core group of players that we just complimented with a Veteran center (Al Jefferson) in free agency.


New coach & philosophy...


Not a bad time to start being a fan... tmost current fans have no idea how we will perform next season.

What the hell I like doing stuff like this:


PG - Kemba Walker: Potential star...no joke. His ball handling, defense, and driving ability make him a player to watch. Check his highlights out

      (Bench: Ramon Sessions - arguably the best non-starting PG in the NBA, Jannero Pargo)


SG - Gerald Henderson: Drafted in 2009, has made himself into a solid starter. Great defender, Above average on offense, good foul shooter.

      (Bench: Ben Gordon - huge 3 pt shooting threat if healthy and not being a dick)


SF - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: At only 20 years old, Kidd-Gilchrist may have the highest ceiling on the team. He gave the Bobcats the youngest player in the NBA for the 2nd year in a row when he started almost the whole season at 19. He's raw with crazy athleticism (dunks, blocks, steals, transition), a lot of potential but it may take a number of years.

     (Bench: Jeff Taylor - Average shooter, slasher, defender, good value 2nd round pick)


PF - Cody Zeller: Taken with the 4th pick in the draft. Known for running the floor well in transition, has a post game beyond his years, can step out to mid-range somewhat consistently, and is a hard worker. He's no star, but he will start here for a while if we keep him here.

     (Bench: Bismack Biyombo - from Congo at 21 years old/7'7" wing span shot blocker/raw athlete, Josh McRoberts- good passer/hard worker/can shoot from mid range, Anthony Toliver)


C - Big Al Jefferson: Bobcats key free agent aquisition. Top 10 C out of high school in '05. Arguably the best post player in the NBA today. Huge defensive liability but he claims to be working on it but an ELITE scorer and rebounder.

    (Bench: Brendan Haywood - vet C than can be good in limited time off the bench if healthy, DeSagana Diop)


This team is a lot of fun to watch at times. Lots of highlights and crazy fun plays. But they're also very young and frustrating. That's about the best way to put it without typing too much. BUT, what I will say is that this is a much better put together team than you'd think.
