Most of you should know that Richardson's gone to Phoenix, as well as Dudley. Boris Diaw and Raja Bell are coming as part of the deal.
Now Larry Brown is making the Cats pure defenders, as you can see Bell and Diaw are more renowned about their defensive ability.
But do you believe that Brown is capable of what he has been doing? of what he is famous of?
His tenure in New York was notorious, but I personally don't blame him. The Knicks HAD bad team chemistry (e.g. Marbury was ordered not to get close to his team)
With J-Rich's departure, Charlotte has lost its best offensive weapon, something Carroll, Morrison, and Bell can't replace.
Hence, the hope of this team lies on its defence, and it lacks another quality big man, (by big I mean as big as Ilgauskas or Kaman, Yao's an outlier)
Overall, if Charlotte can acquire a good center and put Okafor back to his natural position, PF, you can count on this team due to its defensive strength.
P.S. I hate to see Charlotte spending so much money on bench players; for instance, Carroll and Mohammed, who add up to over $10 million for the next three years.
