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.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
