Default Re: If The Bobcats had drafted Brooks Lopez

People would've said last year "If we'd drafted DJ we'd be solid at the point because Felts is chucking dead squirrels at the net."

People have said, "If we'd drafted Andrew Bynum..."
People have said, "If we'd drafted Rudy Gay..."
People have said, "If we'd drafted Brandon Roy..."


So we've made draft mistakes. There's no need to speculate about it. We need to support what we've got. Speculation is for draft night when we've got nothing else to talk about. I'm disappointed we don't have certain players as well, but I am excited about the group of guys we have.

Isn't there another trade/signing deadline coming up? I thought I read something about December 15th.

Oh yeah I am very excited about the team we have this year but still knowing we sturggle at times not having a true big man Lopez would had easliy fixed that problem for us and seeing dj struggle this year just got me thinking about it.

We could have drafted Shaun Livingston in 2004.
We could have drafted Martell Webster in 2005 (actual 6th pick).
We could have drafted Shelden Williams in 2006.
We could have drafted Acie Law in 2007.
We could have drafted Joe Alexander in 2009.


Guys you know what, just trade all the picks away for some veteran.
I thought that Jason Richardson trade was brillant, though it consumed pretty much the entire salary space.

Since top tier free agents don't consider Charlotte as their destination, screw them, we'll trade and front offices of other teams won't give them a ****. Have another trade like the Stephen Jackson one we'll fight all the way to NBA finals.

That would be interesting considering the Knicks are in town tonight. DJ could fly back with them.

Can't trade Murray until 25th.
He signed in September, after the normal free agency period, I think.

Pack Murray and & Acie Law + a 2nd round pick for Brandon Bass?

Well damn can't trade Law until 16 of January.
