I just don't see how the Bobcats are competing for a title next year let alone making the playoffs. Lets see the playoff standings:
These teams will all likely have a playoff spot next year barring major injuries leaving one spot to compete for. So the question becomes is Charlotte better than Indiana, Milwaukee, Toronto, Philadelphia, Boston (the Knicks?). I say no to all but the questionable Knicks and maybe Boston. So thats a no-go as it stands for a Charlotte post-season in my mind.
