This is the best case scenario for us- to be mediocre in a historically awful conference. We aren't going to get lucky and draft some superstar who turns us into a contender, and we aren't going to build a real winner through free agency. Accept what we are- a 1st round punching bag- and be content with it. Only a small handful of franchises can legitimately hope to win a title, and we will never be among that group.

If you think the only way to build a contender is through top draft picks you are horribly mistaken.

Look at the pacers. Roy Hibbert and Paul George are the two main pieces to the team currently in 1st place in the East. Roy Hibbert went 17th overall and George went 10th. Neither are superstars, but they are leading a championship contending team. How about George Hill? He was a 26th overall pick who they acquired through a trade. Lance Stephonson was a 2nd round pick.

How about the Spurs? Yes, Duncan was a 1st overall pick. However, Ginobili was a 2nd rounder, Parker went 28th overall, and Kawhi Leonard went 15th.

The thunder are the only team to build a team through top tier picks and they have yet to win a championship. Trust me, we are better off building a competitive team then just waiting around until we get lucky on the lottery and a superstar happens to be declaring for the draft that year.

With Al on board and others emerging, primarily Kemba, you'd have to think Charlotte is or will become a viable landing spot for some good FA talent.

I'd love to sign another piece in time to re-build the Hornets brand.

Charlotte at this point seems to be following the Memphis/Indiana model for building a championship contending team.

 

The OKC model just isn't that realistic. OKC was very fortunate in more ways than one.

Bump, it seems we are back to earth as a fanbase and opened our eyes to the consequences. The real question is can we get FA to Charlotte??!? Really hurts we didn't trade for Harden

The seasons not over, Washington still has to play Miami.

Indeed it is over my friend. Even if we somehow regain that spot, it will be vs the Bulls. *sigh*
