Default Fact or Fiction

Ok you've seen this on SportsCenter, I'll ask a series of questions, you say whether it's fact (true) or fiction (false).

1. The Bobcats will win 40+ games this year.

2. The Bobcats will grab the 8 seed this year.

3. Adam Morrison will win ROY.

4. Emeka Okafor will make the All-Star team.

5. At the end of the year, Bickerstaff will step down as GM and be replaced by MJ.

We'll know after the fact (so-to-speak), won't we??!! I think it's likely that all will be fact with the exception of a dicey (depends upon injuries) #1 (40-games). I think the Cats will win somewhere around 35 games but not as high as 40.

1. false. they didn't get that much better, get real. They are weak down low compared to everyone.
2. false. they need more veterans and you get those by signing FA not drafting, get it bobcats? sign people!
3. Probably. If Morrison plays enough D to stay and the court and doesn't cry every night he has a really good chance.
4. No! Emeka has down nothing at all to suggest he is even all star caliber. You guys would be lucky if he plays the entire season.
5. Maybe

Ok, I'll put in my answers here. Also, anyone feel free to add your own.

1. I say fiction on this only because I highly doubt the team will stay healthy this year. If Wallace and Okafor stayed healthy throughout the entire year playing 70 games, then yes, this is a 40+ win team. But they wont stay healthy.

2. I say fiction to this as well. Why? Because of injuries. If Wallace and Okafor stay healthy all year then they very well could make the 8 seed. But it would have to be a perfect year. I see the 8 seed going to someone like the Celtics, Pacers or Bucks.

3. I will say fact on this. Morrison was drafted by a team that needed a superstar caliber player with a passion for the game. A lot of people make fun of him because he cried, but that's the kind of passion and leadership the Bobcats have needed. He will be a big key to any success the team has this year.

4. I'll say fact on this as well. I can see Okafor starting out strong this season, but he probably will slow down a lot as the season progresses. I would love to see this guy make the team and this is his year to do it.

5. This was just a question for fun. A lot of people already mistake MJ for being the GM already. I'll say fiction on this. I don't see it happening at the end of this year, but it's likely that MJ will become the GM of the Bobcats in the future.
