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.
So uh, I'm not even really sure what to think about this. Apparently we were going to resign Collins, and arranged two flights for him to fly from his home back to Charlotte, but he missed them both.
So now instead we've signed Garrett Temple to a 10-Day contract.
In a chat on espn.com, ESPN NBA columnist Chris Sheridan was asked who can win the East. He said he was down on the Celtics and Cavs recently and said that he can see the Cats snaking (sneaking?) up on the frontrunners. Then he said this feeling may pass and he like Orlando best right now. I mean, I love the Bobcats as much as the next guy, but #1 in the East? I don't know about that...
