CarolinaPanthers8789

Charlotte Shopping Ben Gordon, Trying To Win Now (Other News)

Recommended Posts

Well, like I said, what other options are there for what we have to offer.  Smith is a huge upgrade in talent, even if he is an idiot.

Before this shoelace crap, over the summer when he was brought up, it was almost unanimous that everyone here wanted him, and we apparently did show interest but he re-signed with the Knicks.

 

I think the crap he's doing now is on purpose so he can force his way out of New York without asking for it.

 

He could give us the scoring we need to possibly push us up into a 4th seed if all plays out well.  I mean, they've basically come out and said they're playing for a playoff spot.  He's on a short-term deal, he can score, we're not gonna get much better, and he'd help us RIGHT NOW.

 

Not true. If I'm correct, only CP8789 wanted Smith in town.

 

Hendo has been playing well. Theres no need to be desperate for Smith.

I'm absolutely sure there were more "yeas" than "nays" on Smith, Chuck. 

It's not being desperate.  Like I said, I don't see how we could get a more talented player than Smith unless we threw in a bunch of other things that most people here would be unhappy about.  Maybe Afflalo?  But, he's not a natural scorer.  He's like what everyone hopes Hendo would be.

 

But, I just don't see doing much better than Smith for what we need.  IMO, I appreciate what Hendo has done, but he's part of the problem here.

Nope. Im pretty sure there were more nays than yays.

 

If MJ/Cho decides to go after Smith, this would proves just how dumb who's controlling this team.

None. Just go with who we already have.

They've said with this BG rumor and all the other moves that they're committed to winning and getting in the playoffs this season.

 

If this team makes it, we are getting swept as an 8th seed.

A move has to be made.

also, went back and found the second or third JR Smith thread from the offseason after it actually was reported that we were pursuing him...  through the first page, there was only about one reply that leaned towards not getting him.  Most all of them questioned what we would be like defensively, but stated that we would be great offensively...  Almost all favorable and affirmative responses to getting him, and among them was this reply:

 


At 10 mil, I easily take JR over Hendo. Only Bobcats fans would think that Hendo is worth that money. I just don't know what direction this team is leaning toward with the possible signing of Big Al and now courting JR. You can't tell me that with those two additions we're not going to be a Playoffs team this upcoming season. From thinking that we could have "3" 1st rounders next year to potentially having "none" (Chicago, Top10 protected: TNT).

not at 10 mil tho.

 

and I might've said some things I really didnt mean.

And, to end this discussion, just quit it already. NO to J.R.

The only J.R. I want in Charlotte is already in Charlotte: Jerry Richardson!

With or without JR, we'd still get swept as 7th or 8th seed.

We'll have to agree to disagree then chuck.

 

I think most people just don't want to fully invest in the idea of purposely trying to win this year.

I am still on that boat. 

 

This is the last year I wanted to tank. 

 

I felt like this draft was apart of the plan all along.  

 

Seemes like we lost our patience.

To be clear, which boat?  The "let's win this year," or "I don't want to win yet, let's still tank"?

The boat that wants to tank.  I guess then technically it would be a "tanker"

It's not all about free agency... it's about cap relief. A lot of people aren't aware of this but this is the first year that the Bobcats have gone into the luxury tax... Most small market teams don't like spending money which is why a small market team could easily decide to trade a bad contract or a couple of bad contracts to get some cap relief.

Gordon's contract could also be super helpful to a team that is trying to tank (L.A. Lakers, Chicago, Toronto).

Gordon's contract might be able to pry Boozer from Chicago.

We're above the cap but about $10 mil UNDER the tax line.

And no cancers please, we don't need Smith. Stay the course, hopefully we keep our pick and get Detroit's too (currently 9th).

With the repeater tax looming, teams should be more willing to take on expirings like Gordon. If not, oh well, between he and Sessions that's $18 mil + in space for FA.
