It's because we have a fatass called Diop coming off the books now, giving us more cap space.

Other than that, I think the analysis was spot on. That is why I am convinced that Cho has to have the keys to the car. If you want to hire Jackson as President, fine. Fire Whitfield, but let Cho run the show regardless even if Jackson is brought on board (which I am convinced is being considered). I agree with SAS when he says that Jordan has to get away from "his crew".
Kwame was the consensus No. 1, Morrison was Bernie's pick and DJ was Larry Brown's pick.
FWIW I've never had a problem with Jordon's drafting.

MJ deserves a measure of blame for those picks EXCEPT Morrison. MJ wasn't even a part of our organization until a couple weeks before that draft, long after scouting season, long after interviews and personal workouts. Theres no way he had much if any input on that selection. It drives me crazy when people say he drafted Morrison.
EDIT: Just remembered how furious I was for taking Jr. instead of Jrue Holiday but I'm finally starting to let it go now that we have Kemba.

probably because they only real bright spot is cap space....which doesnt mean much in the long run. the FO could easily mess up contracts so there is nothing really tangible besides kemba walkers play.
That $20 million in approximate cap space the Bobcats are trumpeting at every chance is also mostly theoretical. Charlotte has about $41 million committed to eight players next season. Henderson’s cap hold takes up another $7.7 million of that space, and the no. 2 pick would eat up another $4 million or so. Toss in charges for empty roster spots, and the Bobcats are looking at something like $8 million in actual cap space — at least before deciding on Henderson’s fate.
Apart from Millsap there is really nobody who I see fits the roster. The few that do are too expensive, old or have already committed elsewhere.
