The BOBCATS are 7-48, lost 12 in a row and counting, Roster is the worst in the CAROLINAS including South Carolina, and the last time they won it was their OWNERS Birthday and isn't that a bunch of JORDAN Concord 11's. They are as we speak 4-22 in the Queen City....Charlotte, North Carolina, and 3-26 away from the Friendly Confines or what do you call HOME when HOME doesn't want you.....Can't wait to see the good teams come to our place?
To compound things MIKE gave the BULLS his 2012 1st round pick, it is PROTECTED, a few years ago for 4-Time LEADER in DNP's Tyrus THOMAS. Who some times and I mean rarely could look like Big Shot Robert HORRY and other times looks like a mix between Ohio State's Brad Sellers and then Memphis State's Keith Lee...which is not good.
Now Mike has Rich CHO, the former RIP City GM who was referred to Mike by the 1st Brand JORDAN President Larry Miller (who now is RIP City BLAZERS President), to run the BOBCATS as Mike and his best friend VP Rod Higgins will take the passenger seat and follow CHO's trusted mind...you hope.
With the BOBCATS with 2012 1st round pick and a few players they could build around like Gerald HENDERSON JR and Kemba WALKER the Future still looks bleak. JORDAN had the Basketball world in his mitts in the 2011 Draft and took Walker with the CONGO's PF Bismack BIYAMBO...and then there is Adam MORRISON of GONZAGA, Sean MAY of UNC, and UCONN's Emeka OKAFOR...need I say anymore.
There is a reason initial owner Robert Johnson, the BET Mogul, passed the franchise off to AIR JORDAN because he doesn't like to lose money and people that are successful on that level rarely do.
Back to the OKAFOR pick the Lottery Ball came up in ORLANDO's Favor and they took SUPERMAN of MOUSE Town at #1 and Emeka was #2 for the BOBCATS. The ONLY players that have panned out from that draft in 2004:
#1 Dwight HOWARD Magic
#2 Emeka OKAFOR Bobcats
#3 Ben GORDON Bulls
#4 Shaun LIVINGSTON Clippers
#5 Devin HARRIS Mavs
#7 Luol DENG Bulls
#9 Andre IGUODALA Sixers
#15 Al JEFFERSON Celtics
#17 Josh SMITH Hawks
#20 Jameer NELSON Magic
#24 Delonte WEST Celtics
#25 Tony ALLEN Celtics
#26 Kevin MARTIN Kings
#31 Anderson VAREJAO Cavs
#44 Trevor ARIZA Knicks
And just looking at that list you probably would have picked OKAFOR at #2 as well considering what was on the board.
Howard (SW Atlanta GA Christian HS), Shaun LIVINGSTON (Peoria CENTRAL Illinois HS), Al JEFFERSON (PRENTISS Mississippi HS), and Josh SMITH (OAK HILL Academy VA) all were drafted right out of High School and the only other in that Top 5 in that 2004 HS Class..HAWKS Marvin WILLIAMS (BREMERTON HS Washington) went to UNC and WON a National Championship in 2005 and was one and done.
Not blaming Mike but the BOBCATS have to make smarter moves and you CANNOT make a living in the NBA banking on Visiting Teams to help your gate. The BLUEDUDE trust me is equipped to help a Franchise get on the winning track....real talk.
Now do the BOBCATS get a new Trans and Engine Block from the BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK Auto Body Shop....no they didn't. I told Mike that it was not repairable and should either look into buying a new car or come get this one in my shop (BLOG) and have someone else fix it.
Note: Draft Order and Picks from NBA.com.....it's 100% BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK after that.....slow down BLUEDUDE..slow down. Click the Video and CHECK out the SONG...this must be before the BOBCATS had their new building.
