People are speculating that he will be reunited with Larry Brown in Charlotte. That's not going to happen. Brown had his time with Iverson and he's not looking for a sequel.

Pretty scathing article on AI. If this is even close to being true I don't want to see AI in Charlotte at all.

What do Bobcats fans really feel that they're lacking? I haven't watched nearly enough 'Cats games to judge. Educate me, if you could have one need filled first and foremost, what would it be?

My vote would be to keep AI out of Charlotte.

At this point I really do not think we are lacking too much at all.....maybe a BIG that can have a bigger impact off the bench. Even without that, had this team been in place from the beginning of the season, we'd be well over .500 now.

It'd be nice to have more depth at the 2, which has become glaringly obvious with Raja's injury.

Sign Iverson for a couple years and draft the best player available with the draft pick. Im not too much into drafting a player in need when it comes to the draft ( I believe Portland traded down in the draft instead of drafting either Williams or Paul because they had Sebastian Telfair at the point, and drafted Martell Webster at 5 ).

I truly believe with a little seasoning from Ajinca who is still a year or two away with added depth with a draft pick while using our MLE on a solid acquisition we can win somewhere around 48 games next year.

I think 48 games is a bit of a hike. I'd be happy if we finish above .500 and make the playoffs. You must crawl before you walk.

We also have to consider other teams will improve in the off season with trades and draft picks (as well as players coming off injury; Arenas for example). Larry Brown's motivation next season will also be a huge factor. I hope we can keep our momentum going into next season... but the way we're playing lately (past 2 weeks) and missing the playoffs (due to a terribly difficult ending schedule) that disappointment might leak over into the beginning of next year. Hopefully not, but...

I think LB will be inspired by the stellar achievements of the Tarheels.

If not for Bob Johnsons Horse Jumper Classic or whatever its called being held at the arena Charlotte could very well have their last 4 games at home, but oh well. Fred Whitfield (sp?) needs to shape up the schedule next year, because this year was just sad comparing the home/away games from the start to the end of the season.
