the bold, unfortunate truth. talk about how great it was to be there all you want...nothing about this was good. this was an absolutely colossal failure. No draft picks, no cap space, no future.

Wow, that is a depressing article.
Well, since Kellydamus said we don't have a chance, I guess the Bobcats should not play at all next year.. Kelly's opinion is no more valid than the clown above me, because all it is an opinion.
haha i knew you'd be the first to drop a positive bomb on me.
I just dont see how you could be positive about it though, sorry. To me, if the Bobcats are gonna exist soley to "make" the playoffs and maybe scrub the feet of the elite teams in the NBA, then ill turn in my season tickets right now. If we arent gonna compete and make moves to win championships, whats the point?
We are early in our existence i know and understand that, and this is the first step. but dude, we didnt even look like we could be Harding High School out there, and with our cap limitations and 0 draft picks, i dont see how it can get better. and the article provides pretty damning evidence of my stance.
I hope against hope, that I am wrong and we win games. better luck next year i guess.
as always though... Go Bobcats.
Looking at Tyson's picture mid-article, it felt like I was looking into a mirror.
With no imminent improvement in sight, one must wonder how the following season will fare, cause the spirit has to be in the dumps right about now.
One thing I disagree with is that our chicks of the coop will be void of value come next season.
Mustachio...one of the hopes I have is we'll buy a pick...a few teams (the Hawks have already made it known) will sell their first-rounders so I'm hopeful we'll buy one...
Thing is...cap space, some dead-weight ("Doris" and Diop IMO) do not help...but I have to feel as competitive as MJ is we'll continue to get better...
We do have two "attractive" expiring contracts in TC and Nazzy...hopefully they will be used to bring back talent...I'll hold out some hope that we get better and don't slide back...

How much better, exactly? Winning a couple of first-round games and leaving the playoffs before may hits would equal stagnation... which is pretty much the gist of the article. Memphis was there ~04-06 and that pinch of success was followed by a couple of horrid seasons.
At the moment, there is no core to build upon, and, frankly, that is the biggest downer.
There shall be trades....many many trades! lol
