I like it I'd even bump us ahead of the Bucks, Hornets and Ra$hard Lewi$'s Orlando Magic.
http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/powerr...n=2008&week=-1 - The Bobcats at 18, one spot above the Lakers. I like it.
2 slots up from when we ended the season last year...definitely not bad, but I still think the Bucks/Magic are being overrated...and the Knicks are probably underrated in this instance as well as the Heat. I think they'll be worse, but 20th?18 (20) Bobcats 33-49 Sam Vincent might be facing an unusual amount of pressure for a rookie coach if the guy who hired him (Michael Something or Other) shares the growing belief that the Bobs, in Year 4, should make a real playoff push.
Thankfully Stein didn't do this else I'd imagine we'd be like 28th.

18 is pretty good to be honest with you.
for a team that has yet to have a season over the .500 mark.... and made some moves that some think may or may not help... ill take 18th all day! to start the season at least.

I think the Magic are definitely being overrated. Them at 13 might just be the worst ranking on that board along with Dallas being #6
According to that article its saying we will be no better than last season. Thats bunk, I think we will end up like 12,13,or 14 on that chart if injuries dont prohibit us from doing so....
......Go Bobcats!!!!! (Hornets) ..
Wow! the Blazers and Sonics are really overrated.
The Blazers have some nice pieces, but I don't see them finishing much more than second to last. The Sonics will be right there with them.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I wasn't expecting us to be that high, but it's nice to see it.
nice nice nice. hopefully we'd be higher when the season starts.
I'm okay with ours, but give me a break with the Celtics! Please people, when your only inside presence is a 7 footer who likes to take jumpers and a point guard who couldn't lead a team to a local Wal-Mart, I don't think there's ever been a more overrated team than the Celts in a long time.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
