The Bobcats are 7-57 overall, and have lost 21 in a row (hello '88 O's).

1 DJ Augustin, Kemba Walker
2 Gerald Henderson, Matt Carroll
3 Derrick Brown, Reggie Williams, Corey Maggette
4 DJ White, Tyrus Thomas
5 Bismack Biyombo, DeSagana Diop

Let's say they get Anthony Davis. How many games would you expect them to improve by in '12-'13?

I think they'll need to add some talent via free agency to become decent.

I also doubt Davis will be a superstar next year.

Didn't catch name, but a Bobcats beat guy was interviewed by Colin Cowherd today. The beat guy said as pathetic as they are 'they can't shoot, defend, pass, or rebound,' that he thought they could be around .500 with Davis.

This is the worst NBA team I've ever seen. No way Anthony Davis adds 15 wins on his own in his rookie year. He ain't a miracle worker.

I hope the Bobcats don't win the draft lottery.

Yeah, if Davis is a 25-13-4 guy in his rookie year.

Wonder what this guy thought Wall could bring the Wizards too before he got drafted here.

They had a terrific piece on Michael Jordan as Bobcats owner on Jeremy Schaap's show recently, in which they looked at how such a good player (the player who led his team to the best ever regular season record) could be such an awful owner (the owner of the team with the worst ever regular season record).

Basically, those who believe in him maintain that Jordan has always succeeded because he failed beforehand. Whether it was going from failing to make varsity in high school to getting a scholarship to UNC or failing to get past the Celtics and then Pistons in the playoffs to winning 6 championships, he learns from his failures and capitalizes on the lessons.

Those people believe that he's used his Kwame Brown failure, his Larry Brown failure, and his 2012 Bobcats failure to now build from the ground up and create a winner.

On the other side, there were those who said that he's too involved, too confident in his own judgments, and he'll never be a winner as an owner. The supporters countered by saying he's already learned not to be as confident in his own evaluations and judgments, and he'll benefit from that.

I still think that even with Davis they are the worst team in the league, but then maybe that gets them Shabazz Muhammad the following year.
