I am writting this post today as a call to a the first dayers and true Bobcats everywhere...Unite! A plan to tank the season can not stand. I would not care if MJ himself was the consenses upcoming number one pick. The Bobcats have never tanked a season. Though bad decision after bad decision they have always fought and fought hard. Two owners, four head coaches, and three general managers they never tanked a season until now. Hardly any regional, local or national coverage to speak of yet they never tank a season. Now enters MJ the riverboat gambler who can't swim. He decides that all of the proud Bobcat tradition means nothing he needs a star to win. Afterall, Bob Johnson a man with infinitely more resources probably sold the team because he couldn't get a pick higher than two and a guaranteed star.
My question is what is a bonafied star. Monte Ellis was drafted in the second round and Jeremy Lin wasn't drafted at all. Greg Oden went number one as did Michael Olowokandi and Kwame Brown for that matter. How dare he ask the fans who have supported this team through thick and thin to just be patient and give up on winning basketball for a moment much less an entire season. All the while, he has a General Manager with a son on the team and a head coach with a son on the staff. Just support us with your time and hard earned dollars while we play out the string, it's only 66 games anyway(not a full season). Who cares, after we maybe secure that lotto franchise saving basketball messiah, you'll forget about the day the Bobcats became the worst sports franchise in history. Well I will not, winners never ever give-in and I am a winner. What are you MJ?
Lakers: Pau Gasol to Minnesota.
Sign backup pg Allen Iverson.
7 million drop in salaries this year, Maggette 10 million off the books, you get something for DJ, and a PR boom among the players for getting A.I. back in the league.
