Before, the Bobcats were simply treading water hoping not to drown—they were not good enough to make the playoffs or good enough to go high enough in the draft to get a franchise changing pick. Although many shunned the Cats and team owner Michael Jordan for purposely tanking the season in order to have a stronger chance to get the number one pick which unfortunately did not happen; however what he and his GM Rich Cho did was the right thing. The Bobcats were going nowhere and would have not gone any further than they had already gotten. Fan morale was already at an all time low thanks to the rather mediocre roster so Jordan made the wise decision to blow the whole thing up and allow Cho to go about his plan build the team through the draft. In effect by tanking the team the way they did, they in effect did a reset on the team cleaning the slate and decided to start over from square one.
