The Bobcats are not that bad

I thought we were in for a 30 Win season, I was wrong. I know it's still just preseason but it looks like we are X10 times better than last season talent wise. Everything seems to be clicking for the Cats right now. We are crushing teams WITHOUT Al Jefferson in the lineup. 

 

I know I could be wrong but everyone on this team looks like they have matured and made it to the next level.

It's only pre season so I wouldn't read too much into it, but we definitely do have the potential -- it's all about whether the young guys (Kemba, MKG, Biz, Hendo, Taylor) have made significant improvements and whether Zeller is the real deal or not. I am definitely excited to watch this team mature under Coach Clifford!

Not hard to see.  Bobcats fans are one of the worst bc we expect our teams to suck.  We expect that bc it usually happens.  I feel a lot different this year.  A lot of talent on this team.

It sucks to admit it, but while we all want improvement, I will speak for myself and say that improvement that equals post-season is great, while meaningless improvement that generates more wins but keeps them out of the playoffs is not that exciting.  With the NBA, that's no-man's land - you need to either be able to hit home runs early in the lottery, or generate excitement for potential free agents by making a run to the playoffs.

I don't think they're as bad as they've been, no.

 

But they're still a longggggg way from being good.

I see a winning range of 25-35.

We will do better than anything thinks, and while I know people will be mad about "trying" to get lucky in the lottery to get a potential all-star, I'll be happy with improvement.

What we're seeing is development of our core group of players.   The Bobcats have never really had that up until recently. It's always been a revolving door of players and coaches previously.   

 

The Cats are a tough team to prognosticate this year.  We might be a playoff team, we might not.  We don't have the best starting five in the league but they're talented and athletic, and we have amazing depth.  Seems like we finally have a coach we can trust.  I feel like we could be 7th in the east this year if a good scenario plays out.

well it could be our players are actually improving, and it could be because we have a good

coach for the first time in................for the first time.

The Cats have been playing defense.

Just remember a lot of Bobcat fans were saying these same exact things last season (talking about improved players, and especially improved coaching). Obviously I hope that we have improved to a 30 win team, but nothing more tbh. I know that people want to win right now, but this draft class is historically good, and if we can land a top 5-8 pick we'll be set up for the future (assuming our current core keeps improving). 27-30 wins, but extremely competitive in many games, only lacking a true superstar to bring us to the top 4 in the East would be not only my hope, but also my prediction on how this season will play out.
