I wasn't miserable while watching the Bobcats play last year. I was miserable when they didn't play (during the lockout). When they did play I tried not to focus that much on the results, but instead on the progression the players made during the season. Especially our front court: Byron Mullens, Bismack Biyombo, Derrick Brown and even D.J. White became twice the players they were before (it didn't made them that much better though).
The only negative thing (besides the normal stuff: lack of talent, lack of winning etc.) was Kemba Walker. After seeing him winning it all that spring I had great expectations which he couldn't live up to. I viewed him as the next Tony Parker, but I forgot it takes time to develop. Luckily this season Kemba seems to have forgotten that himself.
