Well LeBron is pretty good..but Howard's blocks, rebounds, etc are just too much.

Lechump is not that great of a defender he just gets a bunch of hype because of his fast break blocks besides that he doesnt do much defensively

Yeah, I noticed that as well...I'm in the process of tweaking it now.

That was a rough draft..

He was the runner up last year. I don't see why it isn't possible.

A VERY distant runner up.

I see this team imploding

1) They downgraded from Emeka Okafor to Tyson Chandler to save money.

2) Boris Diaw is overweight and injured his ankle this summer. He's trying to rebound from that injury, but I can see him reaggravating that injury during the season and missing a ton of games.

3) Their best player, Gerald Wallace, isn't really all that great offensively, and gets hurt way too often.

4) Raja Bell is shooting under 20% from the field this preseason. The Bobcats are trying to dump him for just about anything at this point.

5) The Southeast Division has improved. Washington is back.


Watching the development of Augustin and Gerald Henderson should be interesting, but the Bobcats are going nowhere this season.

Fair enough. I was just interested in your reasoning. I have a hard time seeing that big of a plunge w/Larry Brown as the coach, personally. I was unimpressed by Henderson when they played the Lakers a couple of nights ago, but I do like Augustin. We'll see.

FWIW, it looks like Raja Bell's gonna miss about 4 months after tearing a ligament in his wrist.

Flip Murray will start at shooting guard then, or Larry Brown will go with the Augustin/Felton backcourt.

Either way, this team is the worst offensive team in the league and I think their defense won't be all that great either.

What are your thoughts on Portland this year?
