It was a troubling season for the Charlotte Bobcats, the wavering team from New Orleans finished last on the table. They've been plagued by poor form since their inception in 2004, the Michael Jordan Owned franchise seems to take one step forward two steps back. This is their last year as the Bobcats, as they reinstate the name Hornets. Could this be the year they turn it around?
With no notable departures but the acquisition of a new draft pick and a free agent perhaps the stability with help to strengthen the Charlotte Bobcats finals hopes. The free agent acquisitions are #25 Al Jefferson forward-center and #40 Cody Zeller center(drafted fourth in 2013).
25 year old shooting guard Gerald Henderson has been convinced to stay for three years to the tune of $18 million, hopefully retaining this key forward will be well worth the investment. Rising star Kemba Walker (#15 point guard) is staying on and should continue to improve his game. The baby of the Charlotte Bobcat team Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (aged just 19 years) will be keeping his #14 jersey on for another season and the towering small forward is tipped to make some serious waves this season.
Despite some extreme negativity from members of the sports press the Charlotte Bobcats could yet surprise us with some incredible form. All the ingredients of a successful championship team are there, will this be the year they step up and show the rest of the National Basketball Association what they are made of?
Coach Steve Clifford is the latest in a long line of Coaches to pass through the Charlotte Bobcats ranks. He has a strong history as an assistant coach going back as far as 2001 with the New York Knicks. Both he and the players seem quite confident in the placement. Hopefully it is a good match and serves them well in the upcoming season.
