Everything I read about their coach is impressive. Every interview he gives he comes off as a guy who will be influential to anyone. Could they be an underdog team this year?

Sample article about Dunlap:

http://blogs.charlotte.com/inside_th...-together.html

Quote:
Dunlap doesn’t just want players in the practice gym at Time Warner Cable Arena; he wants them there at the same time each day, interacting and driving each other. So Henderson and Williams flying to Vegas and working out with summer-league guys set an encouraging tone.

“We’re always ready, whether it’s at nine at night to give a guy a burn, or with our group in static hours,’’ Dunlap said of the coaches’ availability over the summer.

But Dunlap prefers a group setting “where they can go twos, threes or fours, running up-and-down.’’

The difference?

“One, camaraderie. Two, technique and improvement. Three, there’s a family atmosphere you want to create,’’ Dunlap said Wednesday. “It’s peer pressure, in a way, where, ‘Hey, this is the road we travel to be good.’ Confidence is always built on a base of ‘How many reps did I get in and how hard did I work?’ ’’
They also have nice building pieces in MKG and Biyombo. (I think Kemba is trash)

People are in for a shock when they watch the Bobcats next year. They are truly championship contenders with the addition of MKG, the development of Biyombo, and the excellent new coach who will bring a winning atmosphere to the 'Cats.
I have them slated as the second best team in the East next year behind the Heat.

MKG >>> Wade
Biyombo >>> Bosh
Dunlap >>> Spoelstra

Here's to hoping Tyrus Thomas can nuetralize LeBron.

I think they could easily surprise. Expectations are so low that winning 20 games will be a surprise. One hot streak, and they're there!

They could but a lot will have to happen like Biyombo getting it together and be consistent, Kemba playing at a high level on a consistent basis, MKG fitting in and contributing, veterans actually being worth something etc.

I know he isn't a significant piece, but how did the Bobcats end up with Ramon Sessions as a BACKUP PG. I really think Ramon would have made a great backup to Lin. Like Lin, Ramon can get to the line and he is even a better finisher. With Lin's durability questions, it would be nice to have another quality PG like Sessions in the stables.....

If Bobcats keeps getting lottery picks every year then they will bound to be good eventually.

Kemba is going to be their starting PG and he is the next coming of Jonny Flynn, so nope

No way! Kemba at least showed flashes of a NBA quality player. He can beat his opponents off the dribble and get to the rim, also averaged 15, 5 and 5 as a starter.

Bobcats will surprise us with yet another bad season.

Now if the Rockets make the playoffs and make the second round, that would be surprising.

They should be one of the top teams in defense with MKG and Jeff Taylor in the fold.
