Agree completly, he'll have the stats yes, but probably won't make the team unless we're winning. Voting is a popularist pursuit and most non Bobcat fans think we're terrible and everything about us is bad.
If we have a good season then the players deserving of praise will get plenty for 'carrying a bad team to victories'. However I worry with basically just Okafor (probably with minor injuries as normal) and Brezec in the way of bigs how we're going to get to that 8th seed that our talent level and work ethic is capable of due to chemistry.
We could see just one big and us going a bit like the Suns loaded with wings as we are, but it doesn't sound like they want to play small. A rouse perhaps? only time will tell.
Perhaps Okafor not getting his extension is prep for dropping a couple of contracts next offseason for another big guy just under the salery cap and then getting Okafor to sign the deal immediatly after. Not sure if that's possible but I think it is easier to trade / sign a FA then after that extend our own guy. Hate to be negative before the season starts as know the injuries at least aren't to our big stars but dare I say it already, who might we be able to pick up next offseason with potential space, lol the Bobcat mantra it seems
