I want to be a 7 or 8 seed just to piss everybody here off
that and i'm fucking sick of being the butt of everybody in the entire nation's jokes
I never feel like a team should tank a season for the sake of anything. As a fan I want to see my team give 100% every time they step onto the court. Regardless of the teams situations. The Bobcats improved last year over the year before. They are continuing to improve the roster and I think they will improve this year over last. Because let's face it, can we really get any worse?
Some of you keep saying that MJ needs to go out and get a superstar player. Well we now have AJ. By name he might not be a superstar but by the numbers he's comparable to Dwight Howard, who IS a superstar.
I think we can be in the 30-35 win range this season. Possibly have the R.O.Y. on our roster and a few All-Stars (MKG, AJ and Zeller). As bad as this team has been in the past I really believe that we are finally moving in the right direction. I'm a glass half full kinda guy. And I'll remain that way.
For like the 15th thousand time.
It's not about losing on purpose. The Bobcats won 28 games the last two seasons combined... asking them to win 28 games in one season isn't asking them to tank. Its asking them to get a lot better. Thats not a loser mentality.
As far as Tupac's tired of being the butt of everyones jokes... what exactly does becoming a sacrificial playoff lamb do to alleviate that? Did it work last time?
It is short sighted, impatient and flat out stupid to spend the last few years being terrible, and then becoming mediocre the first time we can actually put ourselves in a position to be GREAT. You guys that want us in the playoffs are selling the team out for your own embarrassment. just because you're tired of getting laughed at cause you don't cheer for a winner, doesn't mean we should pass up a chance at greatness. Is the draft a guarantee? of course not. But I'd rather take the shot at greatness, than settle for some mediocre playoff sacrifice team. It's one more year, where we have absolutely NOTHING to lose by losing. If we get hosed out of the lottery or things go terribly wrong, then you can try for the playoffs in 2014 either way.
Into the crevasse!
