I just want a win. Winning is what matters to me.

 

 

 

When your at the bottom, the only way is up. Dont take two steps forward and 3 steps back.

Until 5 minutes ago we held a playoff spot. We are 4 wins from owning the 4th seed.

Get real dude. Do we suck? Yeah. Could we still get a 4-5 seed? Easily.

 

We are also only 2 games back from having the third worst record in the East. With Cleveland hitting their stride and Rondo returning to Boston in their next game we are pretty much toast.

Chuck, you don't understand where I'm coming from. I respect your views. Let's just hope Hornets have a bright future.

Yes, we have the cap to sign a star and we will have two draft picks to pick up talent.

 

Stars are not exactly lined up and knocking on Time Warner Cable Arena's door. Teams in small markets have to rebuild through the draft.

I understand your views. You dont understand mine.

 

I get that you want to win. It'd help going into the Hornets era coming off a Playoffs berth. But, you are clearly investing your future (2-3 years) by making the Playoffs this year. The talents to be a contender is not on the team right now. I dont see this team being a playoffs team next year with the same group of core guys.

 

I rather make the playoffs in the Hornets era than not making it. Think about it. 

 

The chance to build your team next season with three 1st rounders (1 high lottery) in this upcoming draft will be a bigger "win" than winning 30 some games and get sweep by the Heat or Pacers.

is the 15th pick in the lotto?

No, but the pick would belong to Chicago since it's not in the top ten.

We go out West at the end of the month, I can see the wheels really falling off then but I do hope we beat the Lakers.

Our squad has potential, but zero consistency offensively. No rhythm. Players are so streaky it's hard to watch

No seriously, I understand your point of view. I just can't physically want the Bobcats to lose when we could be a playoff team. I feel sick when I think this team won't have one win in the playoffs in a decade. 

 

Considering the team just lost to Phili tanking is starting to become the best idea.

Playoff's in the NBA are really nothing, especially in the East. 

 

If you are not in the top 4 seeds, your essentially meaningless.  

 

In the NFL it is definitely a tournament, but in the NBA, its mostly chalk.

If the pick did not go to Chicago outside the top 10, then this wouldn't be as dire of a situation for the Cats.

 

I think we all know with this roster, if we do make the playoffs with a 7 or 8 seed, we are getting destroyed and we lose out on the pick.

 

I started the season thinking playoffs, but after watching the inconsistency on this team I feel like we need to load up on talent and it's possibly the worst year to not have a top 10 pick.  If we make the playoffs, and Detroit ends up in the top 8 and keep their pick, then we will get a mid-20's pick from Portland and that's it.

 

As far as FA, I don't know who will be available.

 

As a season ticket holder, I can't actively pull for the team to lose, however, if they fight the good fight and lose I'm not upset at the end of games.  After a half season to evaluate, I really feel like getting picks in this draft is in the best interest of this team in the long haul.  Everyone in the East will get better, we need to as well.

 

I think there is a great core here but they need another piece or two.  It's a very Bobcats thing to do when you are rebuilding and then decide to rush the job and compete in the worst year in 10 years to do so.

Its hard for a knuckle head to consider others opinion.

Yea, we just loss to the Sixers. Whom their best player is really their rookie. And you really expect this team to be playoffs material? Im done with this convo.
