Even though I have posted 3 of the last 4 posts, it doesn't mean I have to wait around. The offseason is an ugly time of year. Actually, it's the most beautiful time of year in the northern hemisphere but it's the time of year when NBA fans have the least to talk about (d'uh), which makes it socially and emotionally ugly. Now that all, or most, of the fun trades and signings have already happened we're left trying to talk ourselves into being MLB fans, or hardcore NFL fans. While I enjoy watching a few games, or highlights, here or there, I can't honestly say that I really care about A-Rod or Michael Vick. So, in memory of crapiness, I bring you....my "Least Favourite Team":
The CHARLOTTE BOBCATS.
Blue and orange...has anyone ever heard of the New York Knicks? Didn't they already claim those colours as their own like 700 years ago? Are there really not enough colors in the world to avoid using the exact same two colours as one of the most historic teams in the league?
So the Bobcats have only ever had two good players; both of whom could still be debatable as being any better than "good." Emeka Okafor won the Rookie of the Year in 2005. Have you seen him do anything since then? Gerald Wallace made the Eastern All-Star team in 2010. Is he fun to watch? Of course. Is he a good leader of an NBA team? I guess he got them to the playoffs. That says something...but then they got swept (I guess you could throw Stephen Jackson and Tyson Chandler into that conversation if you really wanted to). Since joining the league, the Bobcats record is .382. 2010 was their only season above .500.
And they drafted this guy.....
