Default We are about to make NBA history

Worst team ever in the history of the game.


I'll be at the game Thurs. to witness it. It's also going to be televised nationally on TNT, a decision i know the network is regretting right now.

Anyway I'm trying to be philosophical about the whole mess. I went to every home Panthers game in 2000 and we lost every single one of them. 3 years later we were in the Superbowl. Turnarounds do happen.

Panthers turnaround went something like this: Gutter to Playoffs.
Bobcats turnaround went something like this: Playoffs to Gutter.
The Cats have had some terrific players over the years. How could we be where we're at now? Is there really any sense to be made out of it?

Bad contracts. We've shed some of them, will shed more after this season and even more after next season (except for TT). That's the only explanation for this debacle imo.

I can think of one more reason. There is obviously something inherent in the team/mgmt/ownership that saps the morale and motivation from our best players. They start off like gang-busters, slowly lose their will to play/win, get traded to other teams and then take off like gangbusters again. Whatever it is that saps the will of the players is some kind of intangible that I can't' grasp nor describe.

Well if you want to be accurate, we went to the NFC championship game in 1996, then steadily went down until bottoming out at 1-15 in 2000. We came back, won in 2003 and 2009 and then went 2-14 in 2010. Such is life in professional sports. Your fortunes can change at the drop of a hat.

So is there hope for our Cats? I never want to give up on them.

gerald hendersin has shown promise but i thought he would take control of the team this year but he hasn't. he's doing well but i think he is honestly like more of a role player. ths makes me sad

dj augusdtyin trade him. kemba walker is going to better than him and he shoes a lot of promise. he's the pg of the future, he can be like 18 points 8 assists easy if he gets the playing time. the future belongs to him

i dunno man everyone sux. reggie williams who is he?? why did he start?? he sux why is he playing

bidmack biyombo is a good one. he will beome a good defender but he has no post game. its ok he just needs to dunk and be athletic. he will be a good defender for years to come

we need to win the draft anthony davis unibrow boy is ours. if we get him he will be reallyyyy good for a long time him and bismack biyombo will be great together.

this team will winn the championsjip next year BOOK IT!!

Quiz....wow. That was epic.

I've been pretty good. About to graduate next week, and then I start grad school 2 weeks after that. So still busy, but still alive.

If this post is representative of how you're handling your life right now then I'm deeply disappointed in you.

I'm very proud of you. Three questions: what is your undergrad major/Where are you going to grad school/what course of study are you pursuing? Is it still Journalism?

Inquiring minds want to know. And besides, doesn't it just seem like yesterday that you graduated high school and were starting at ECU?

Congratulations!

Haha it sure does. I actually switched from journalism to English. I know that seems to disappoint people but I felt like I was being taught how to write with a spin and exaggerate certain things...which I HATE. So I moved to English because I could write what I wanted.

So I'm going to grad school to continue with English, concentrating on Technical and Professional Communication...which is fancy talk for, "If I can't get a job as a teacher, I can fall back on editing."
