I am very skeptical of tearing it up in the D-League, Bazz went down and did the same thing and he came back and has done nothing special.

yeah 40pt in a d league game is like 15 in an nba game

Parker will most definitely come out and is be surprised if both don't unless their stock falls. Not much more to prove if you're being projected 1-2.



Embiid is said to be seriously considering returning for one more year. Don't expect Parker to stay though and don't believe any more of the top 5-7 players will stay in school past Embiid.

if embiid stays and improves another year this kid could be like a tim duncan or shaq coming right in and tearing up the league

I think he's more of a Hakeem type player definitely not shaq.

If the Bobcats make the playoffs it doesn't matter what Stern does because they wouldn't be in the Lottery. The Piston's pick would revert back to them if it moves up past the 8th pick. 

 

I'd honestly be surprised if the Bobcats even have a pick in next years draft after the trade deadline..

Even with the team shopping both picks, Gordon and Sessions??? I'd be surprised if they don't make the playoffs if they make the moves that's being projected right now.

I hope not. What's the point. Max potential of team now is 7/8th seed. If we got lucky and got Parker then had a couple solid picks to go with him we could be top half of the East.

Team's only 5.5 games out of 3rd place.4.5 games out of 4th place. If they made the right moves I could see them getting a 5th or 6th seed.

Which begs the question, if they cant make a trade, do they go into tank mode?

I'm starting to think Parker is going to stay at Duke for awhile. I have been hearing that from some people close to the Duke program for months but its his decision not theirs. Anyway they feel pretty confident he will be staying.

 

 

I hope Charlotte can make the playoffs as a 6 seed so we can win a game or 2. it would be helpful for the community and we would still have a couple picks in the draft. Drafts are never a guarantee of gaining a superstar even though this draft looks promising.

I think getting a star who played at duke would be better for the community.
