Default Felton Confident about Playoff Chances.

From the Charlotte Observer:
CHAPEL HILL - Raymond Felton still says the Charlotte Bobcats are going to the playoffs.

He remains adamant they would have fulfilled a prediction he made and reached the playoffs last season -- if not for injuries to Emeka Okafor, Gerald Wallace and Sean May.

Felton, a second-year guard, predicted Tuesday the Bobcats will make the playoffs in 2006-07 if they stay healthy.

"It's playoffs. Definitely," Felton said during a news conference to promote the Bobcats' Oct. 17 exhibition with the Washington Wizards at North Carolina, where he played in college. "We have that type of talent. And I have that much confidence in my team."

In September 2005, while speaking to eighth-graders at Piedmont Middle School, Felton predicted the Bobcats would make the playoffs. They finished 26-56. Milwaukee (40-42) grabbed the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Injuries limited Okafor, the 2004-05 rookie of the year, to 26 games, leading scorer Wallace to 55 and May to 23 in an 82-game schedule.

Felton said Okafor is a great shot-blocker and rebounder who can score when Felton drives and delivers the ball in the post. Felton called Wallace "Mr. Everything" -- a gifted scorer, rebounder and defender.

Adam Morrison, chosen out of Gonzaga with the No. 3 pick in the draft, can shoot, drive and pass and possesses a tremendous competitive spirit, Felton said. With those pieces in place, Felton said, he is confident the Bobcats will make the playoffs.

"I think so," Felton said. "I know so."


He sounds pretty confident, let's hope he's right about his prediction.

The Bobcats have a lot of talented young players and if they mesh well together, with the given roster, they could be very good. However they record from last season speaks for itself. They'll have to improve a lot before playoffs are a possibility. And keep everyone healthy.

When you quote a source, as you often do, it is important to cite that souce--both from an ethical and legal standpoint.
