Michael Beasley

If the Bobcats make the playoffs they have to give up a first round pick to Chicago, he's just not worth that pick. 

 

 

He's a headcase and doesn't have enough upside or impact for future seasons to make the gamble on him.

Beasley drastically improving our team and hurting our draft position next year means that we would win 5-10 more games purely because of Beasley alone. This is so wrong it is hilarious. If he could affect our season that much, every team in the NBA would be knocking down his door, even with the drug issues... but he can't, so they aren't.

We have already dramatically upgraded our team this offseason, anyone that thinks we are still in the bottom 5 of the league and going to end up with a blue chip lottery pick does not know anything about the players we acquired, nor the state of some of the other teams in the NBA. A few NBA teams are obviously tanking in an attempt to land Wiggins, Parker, or Randle... and I hate to break the news top you, but the Bobcats are not one of those teams. With Beasley or not, we will be on the cusp of the playoffs in the East and will be drafting outside of your delusions.

How many upgrades does this team need before people stop calling it a "bad" team?  I swear, if we signed Dwight Howard this year and traded for Josh Smith or someone our fans would be mad that we could win a few games and not get a high pick.  "This team is 7 or 8th seed at most, until we get Michael Jordan in his prime here." LOL.

 

I'm only against Beasley because he seems like a nutcase.

Basically if they end up outside of the top 10, then picking up Jefferson was the worst mistake this team has ever made. Point blank period and there isn't even a slight question about it. Having a chance at the possibility of what Randle, Parker or Wiggins can be is better then anything that Jefferson can provide unless he suddenly gets quicker on his feet and starts to play some serious defense.

It's not beyond possibility big Al improves his game defensively.  He's been the record saying the "black hole" nickname is something he's earned and that he wants to fix.  He's only had a couple coaches and they probably had him focus on offense.  Maybe a new coach (Ewing, etc) can make him less of a liability.

We will continue to call them a bad team until they show us they're not a bad team. Nobody expected the Lakers to be so shiitty last year, as an example.

I am not saying we will be drafting out of the top 10 for sure, but I do think with the roster changes and additions we have made that we will be drafting outside of the top 5 or 6 which is where the elite players every scout is drooling over will be selected: Wiggins, Randle, Parker, Exum, Smart
