I laugh at anybody trusting what Bleacher Report says. That very well could be some twelve-year-old writing that. Do not, I repeat, do NOT believe things that are written on Bleacher Report. Its not any different than you or I writing a long post on here.
I don't see us moving that many pieces to bring in AL and TJ. We damn well better get more than AL and TJ for moving starters DIAW and TC plus a heavy minute backup and FORMER FIRST ROUNDER's IN AA and DJ.
To be fair, Diaw was outplayed by Thomas, Chandler wasn't that good last year and would be replaced by Jefferson, and a first round pick doesn't always equate to quality talent, especially when we're talking about the Bobcats. A heavy minutes and quality back-up at PG would be a must though, considering Ford's injury history.
Pardon my idiocy but i'm far more adept at knowing the Panthers than the Bobcats. I love the Bobcats but don't know the NBA as well as I used to. With that said:
Hey its not problem, all fans start somewhere and I'm glad that you're hopping on with the Bobcats! Now, let's get down to business....
1. PG, with Felton gone, or likely so, is DJ the man for the job as a starter or do we need to find another starting quality PG. I know we're limited on cap space.
Augustin hasn't proven that he can be anything other than a back-up in the NBA, so we need to acquire somebody else to run the point. With any luck we'll be able to trade Tyson Chandler and his expiring contract or Boris Diaw for a starting PG.
2. C, glad we locked up TT, but is he going to play the 5? Personally I'm a bug believer in a dominant post player, someone who can hold their own in the paint on both ends if the floor.
Nope, Thomas is a PF. I'm a big believer in having a dominant two-way post player too, but Thomas is an above-average rebounder and shot-blocker. If we can get a scoring center then we should be fine.
3. What other needs do we have?
Well, we've the 2, 3, and 4 pretty much locked up with Stephen Jackson, Gerald Wallace, and Tyrus Thomas and we've already discussed our need for another PG and a C. We need a good sixth man and another SG for the bench. Flip Murray has expressed the desire to return to Charlotte and Coach Brown really likes Larry Hughes. I'd guess one of those two guys fills the role of sixth man/back-up SG next year.
4. Outlook/Opinions on the upcoming season.
I think we're going to be a middle of the pack team this year. We're nowhere near as good as teams like Orlando, Chicago, or Miami, but with some hard work from the front office and the players I think we can be on par with teams like Atlanta and Milwaukee.
Thanks for the patience and info.
Anytime. If you've got more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
With all the different reports out there, it just seems to me that the LeBron camp is really good at misinformation and keeping all of us in the dark. He winds up in Miami, and Beasley gets to make his name as a Charlotte Bobcat.
Here's something for you Cowher supporters to think about: John Fox's winning percentage is greater than Bill Cowher's without Dick LeBeau. Cowher wasn't the driving force behind those Steeler teams, it was LeBeau and his defense.
I hope we sign him to an extension, because he really won't be hurting for a job for long if we let him go. Some team that needs rebuilding will hop on him as soon as the season is over and he'll build a quality team through the draft, just like he's done here.
Question: In NC, do you have to have a permit or anything to own a gun? Other than the permit to buy a gun? If I decided to buy a gun from a coworker, no paperwork in the transaction, would I have to be registered or the gun registered in NC?
You need a permit to buy a handgun from a dealer and maybe from your coworker, I'm not a sure about that. Any long gun you can buy when you want from whoever you want. No permit, and certainly no fugging registration required.
