Bobcats' pick is actually 15th now, we're the worst team in the playoffs. The Detroit pick is ninth too.

ugh...only in the NBA can a team that has zero chance to win a series make the layoffs. So we win enough to make the playoffs but ruin our future chances in doing so. Only this franchise can figure out a way to lose 2 lottery picks in a loaded draft.

Guys, chill down. Before we know it, Detroit, Cleveland, and NYK will all be on top of us.

 

We'll hold three picks in the 1st round: no.8, Detroit, and Portland.

 

 

 

Prospects that I am considering with Charlotte's pick: Aaron Gordon, Noah Vonleh, and Zach LaVine.
Prospects that I am considering with Detroit's pick: James Young, Gary Harris, Tyler Ennis, and Glenn Robinson.
Prospects that I am considering with Portland's pick: Kyle Anderson, Semaj Christon, P.J. Hairston, Mitch McGary, and Isaiah Austin.

Right now Detroit and NY are 1/2 game out of 8th place with a game in hand. One of those teams will likely get the 8th playoff spot over Charlotte. 

 

 

The Bobcats have this upcoming stretch of games. 

 

@Denver, @LAL, @Phoenix, @GS, Vs. SA, Vs. Dallas, @Brooklyn, @ Detroit, Vs. Detroit.  Outside of Home Against Detroit and at LAL, all of those might just be losses.

We caught a bad break (well us in the tank crowd) @ Denver, no way we would have beat them if Lawson and Robinson had been healthy, if we make the playoffs then MJ should fire himself.

The race for 8 heats up!  Bobcats currently leading the way, but the Pistons have been coming on strong since firing their coach and the Cavs are joining the race after winning 4 straight (there has even been an Anthony Bennett signing).  And then theres the Knicks, the most talented and least understood
 
8    Charlotte    23-30
9    Detroit        22-30
10  New York   20-32
11  Cleveland   20-33

So, our pick goes to Chicago if we make the playoffs (top 12 protected) but we essentially keep it if we dont. Detroit keeps their pick if it is in the top 8 (Detroit has the 10th worst record now, so they would have to drop below the Knicks and Cavs to have a shot at keeping it).

Meanwhile, the Knicks have no incentive to tank as they do not own their 1st round pick (traded to the Nuggets in the Melo trade), and the Cavs seem intent on winning after trading for Deng.

I kind of want to hang on to the Portland pick, it could end up around 24th, you can find a good player there and develop them.

Imagine a world where we end up in the lottery with our pick and get Detroit's lottery pick...and both end up being in the top 3. I don't think I could take it.
