is the 15th pick in the lotto?

 

no.

 

But why would you even want to be a no8 seed and get swept 4 straight games by Miami or Indiana and expect to be happy with the no15th pick that will belong to Chicago?

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

Yea buddy.

 

I want the damn team to win. But win when it's worth winning. Not when teams are giving you the damn worthless wins.

 

I work and earn things. I dont take anything for free.

 

 

You really think that we can be a playoffs team next season with the same roster? Yea, thats what I thought.

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

So, what you're saying is you know exactly that this team is bad. That we will go in as the 8th seed and get sweep 4 straight games by Miami or Indiana?

 

then turn and give that pick to Chicago?

 

Let's everyone drink and be happy about it.

Right. Who exactly in FA are you referring to?

 

Teams just find gems late in the draft all the time too right?

 

You're obviously not a car salesman. Im not biting it.

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.

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.

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.
