View Full Version : I was thinking about our injuries today and wondered...

What would happen if on our first game against the Bucks, Okafor got injured for the year? Would the Bobcats just throw in the towel for the season or would we find a way to deal with it? And if we still wanted to attempt playoff contention, what changes would have to be made?

Well, if we lost a 3rd player to go with Adam and May, then we would be allowed to get a 16th player under Contract. That is the problem we have now. Anything we do will have to be via trade or by buying one of the existing Contracts out.

if okafor goes out for the year, we will battle for the #1 pick next year
I'd cry like a new born baby.
That's like saying what would happen if Kobe went out for the year. Let's think positive thoughts people.

I be upset about losing him but then Id be looking for a "BIG" big time.....

I think that if that happened, we'd play this lineup:
C: Davidson or Walter
Whatever the case, we'd be going small ball. We'd create mismatches and would be able to compete. Just not playoffs.

Without Emeka, we would be toast. I don't even want to think about that possibility.

It would be a long, long season. And we would be looking at a top 3 pick in the next draft. God, 81 more games without our big man? We would likely be looking at a 20-25 win season without Oak, not to mention no Morrison or May to help at all with scoring. Bad, bad, bad.

...which exposes the teams failure to find a big this summer...
I'd put Hollins at C and hope for the best. Trial by fire.

25 wins would be a raging success with the team minus Okafor - last year, when he or May were not on the court for the Bobcats were outscored by 6.5 points per 100 possessions. That's Boston and Memphis level (last year of course).
