To those who are saying we have lost out on the #1 pick.....just relax. #1, 2 and 3 are all still very much in play for us. This team is going to be better, and will look like a true basketball team this year. However, look at all the games we lost by nearly 20 points last season. We will improve enough to lose those games by 8-10 points, but not enough to win them. 1 player is not going to win 15-20 games for us. Just not going to happen.
We are still following the plan, and nothing has changed. This was a good move and has not jeopordized our place in the draft. Not to mention, I like the way both Portland and Detroit are looking right now, and I am feeling like we will get all of our picks this season. We could always package 2 later 1st round picks for another one inside the lottery. We still have a lot of options and I can't wait for draft night 2014! That will be the day this team takes a HUGE step forward, and the Hornets will start over in Charlotte in a big way. Don't give up on it now. Here's to Wiggins or Jabari and Marcus Smart!
