Default team needs

The Cats still have a slight chance of making the playoffs but its highly doubtful that they will. Its still kind of early to talk about the draft but how many 1st round picks the Cats have and what do you think the Cats should use the pick (or) picks?

The 2 main spots the Cats should focus is the SG spot and the C spot.

If Charlotte makes the playoffs they dont have a first rounder.

I think our starting 5 is solid, so at this point you draft the best talent available when its your turn.

Any way we could convince MJ to have no part in the draft whatsoever?

We need a version of Gerald Wallace without the concussions and collapsed lungs.

I think a big defensive 2 guard or a true big would help. I think the Cats should jump on the Josh Howard trade for Felton now.

Default Re: team needs

Basically every position is upgradable...


Felton's likely gone so a veteran PG's necessary.
Raja Bell's aging so we need a young combo guard
GW's injured pretty much every season so we'll definitely need a solid bench SF with quick feet.
A rebounder PF is needed to back up Diaw and that guy's probably not May.
A really tall scoring big men to help out Okafor cus Oka's undersized and have trouble grabbing rebounds against 7ft. big men. Diop won't help in scoring.

I think the Cats are pretty solid right now. You guys basically have good players at all 5 positions and it's just a matter of winning games now

How about Diop and Nazr for Kaman... Maybe throw in Ammo and May.
(IMO Kaman's a beast).

Illegal Trade: Diop + Nazr = $11.5 million ( what a waste of money)
Kaman = $ 9.5 million Therefore, % difference is about ~20%

We have too many subpar big men who can't do shxt. One can do nothing and the other can't score much.

Nobody on earth will want to take Morrison and/or May. They prove how Charlotte FO screwed Bob Johnson's hope. MJ better buy all the shares from Johnson at twice the market price to make up what disaster he and pervious FO workers have created...

I think May's more hopeful than Morrison, at least May has proven to be effective in the past while Morrison has never been a consistent player.

Damn...anyone who play 2K9 will know how slow Morrison is and his inability to finish at the rim.

Anyway, does anyone know why MJ and co. drafted Morrison?

I think that we drafted him because at Gonzaga he shot the lights out and won titles. I know that some of our other posters here will know exactly what I mean and post it here. And his first NBA season I remember being very excited about him. He could shoot at will. Except that Ammo was so self-conscious that it was like a cloak over his game so we got flashes of brilliance that have faded horribly over recent seasons. For sure no one is more disappointed in him than he is.

I guess that "flashes of brilliance" could describe May, too, and LB seems to be willing to allow May to recapture that but where's May on that? Is May on board? Don't know. May doesn't seem to have too much life in him.

That's actually kind of the idea that I got when I read an article on the ISH main page pertaining to the Bobcats roster. I mean, everyone was saying that JJ Red would never pan out to be a good NBA player and then they go out and draft a player who is even more unathletic 3rd overall? Even Tyrus Thomas has shown himself to be of more use than Morrison. The article stated that Morrison was a bust but I really cannot think of what people were expecting out of him. At best, he's a differant flavoured Jason Kapono. A role player. You don't draft role players with the 3rd overall pick.

It would be very, very easy to see what folks were expecting from him if you all would only familiarize yourselves with what he did in college. You would then be able to answer your own question rather than going around and around about a very simple issue. He was a phenom in college but one who hasn't been able to make the transition from college phenom to the NBA.

yeah, OWL is totally correct here. in college, ammo had an excellent shot and he was really, really strong. he was always a very aggressive player, and being aggressive and strong are two very favorable traits for the NBA. he never was very fast, but he never needed to be. it's unfortunate that he's been so bad in the NBA.
