Charlotte Bobcats Team Info
The Bobcats originated when the city of Charlotte started lobbying to get a new franchise in their city to wash away the bad taste in their mouths left by the Charlotte hornets with George Shinn and Ray Wooldridge. The NBA awarded the city a franchise and the owner was Robert Johnson who is the founder of Black Entertainment Television and the first minority owner in the league. Johnson also brought rapper Nelly in as one of his many minority owners of the Bobcats franchise. The team named Bernie Bickerstaff as the General Manager and Head Coach.
The team is looking like they have the base to be a good team in the coming years. They used the second pick in the draft to pick center and all around Good Samaritan Emeka Okafor. Okafor finished his degree in three years and could've left for the draft a year before, but elected to stay to finish out his degree. He also led his team to a national championship due, largely in part, to his dominating play in the middle.
The Bobcats projected starting lineup won't be too scary to opposing teams due to the fact that they are players that all the other teams didn't want, but they do have a great deal of athletic ability and will be a force to be reckoned with in a year or two. At point guard the team will have Jason Hart, at shooting guard will be Gerald Wallace, at small forward will be Jason Kapono, at power forward will be Emeka Okafor and at center will be seasoned veteran Jahidi White.
The Bobcats' bench looks mighty thin at almost every position. They should have Predrag Drobjnak spelling their big men along with Marvin Ely and for their guards Eddie House, Tamar Slay and Omar Cook should give their starters a breather when they need it.
