View Full Version : Any Excitement for Bobcat's Future?

Smack Biyombo has been playing well as the most raw rookie in the league and it's almost certain most of the vets with big salaries will be gone. the cats will land either anthony davis or andre drummond in the draft and have a great future pg in kemba walker. I think with a vet small forward the team could look pretty competitive.

With that said, Paul Silas is not the guy to coach a competitive club. He does good with getting guys to show their potential, with the exception of Tyrus Thomas and Diaw, but he isn't the guy to get the cat's in the playoffs. If we can add some shooters at 2 and 3 and a PF that can stretch the floor then I think we'd be a formidable team for (get ready for it) Mike D'Antoni to come in and coach.

We have to trade Augustin. The fact that he hasn't been traded when it's obvious we drafted Kemba to be the PG is astounding. We can get value for him still and I think it will help put the pieces together for a decent team over the next 5-6 years.

Anyone else think the Bobcat's will be on the rise after the season?

I hope so. I really want Davis in the draft. Him and Biyombo in the front court is a good start, and i like Hendo as our starting 2 going forward. As for D'Antoni, I want to stay as far away from him as possible.

D'Antoni sucks. He's the last coach I want touching this team. Silas is a way better option. ****, I would almost rather have Sam Vincent than Mike D'Antoni. Especially if we're going to have Biyombo and Drummond/Davis as our bigs.

Mack and Henderson are swaggy, I was never high on Kemba in the first place (I do think he can be a valuable sixth man at his peak), and the only bad contracts are Bad Porns(who let the Cats get rid of SJax so its already a win) and TT(who could be amnestied) if they get Davis they will have a shot blocking PF-C god force.

I'd be all for D'Antoni coming, the guy can coach. He's just had two dead end jobs and when the turd Melo came back ruined everything with the Knicks not Coach D'Antoni. The fast pace with our young guns would be fun to watch every night at least. Not to mention that he would have Kemba putting up Jeremy Lin type #'s like he put up before Melo came back.

I don't want D'Antoni for the reasons previously explained. I'm more than content with Stephen Silas taking over after this year. And speaking of which, I vehemently disagree that Paul Silas is not the guy capable of coaching competing clubs. I don't think anyone could do much with our roster to be honest, and to his credit he's done a great job developing young players like DJ, Hendo, Kembo, and Bismack. To be honest, developing is his primary job at this point. He knows that we don't need to be competing this year because we are rebuilding. So it's unfair, in my opinion, to say Paul is incapable of coaching this team. As for the future, Stephen would be high on my list to succeed Paul.

Anyway, we're on the rise for sure. We have to get worse to get better. It sucks, but that's the only way that we'll have long lasting success.

i all up to cho i think he knows what hes doing...
we might trade dj since we have kemba it all up to him now.
1st round pick is heading davis or drummond would be a good front court with bismack (hope we have 1 or 2nd pick).

if we can aquire another picks for this year draft i rather go with barnes or mkg, going to be a nice wing with hendo...

in coaching ,if we have right pieces and the team still suck, everyone knows it what will happen next to paul silas...
we might try a new young coach as what okc did do.

i still really disagree on paul silas being the coach of a competitive team. he can groom the hell out of young players like when the cavs got him to groom lebron. but no competitive team in their right mind would hire him. He can get a lot out of younger players, but he definitely isn't the guy to coach a competitive team. In his 11 years as a head coach he has a .470 winning percentage (and its getting worse) and the 4 times he's had a team in the playoffs that team lost in the within the first two rounds.

However.... if the bobcats draft anthony davis and can get a more younger and offensive SF than Maggette in the off season then i'd be fine with paul silas. it would be way better than the 00-01 team he coached with baron davis, eddie jones, mashburn, anthony mason, and elden campbell.

His winning percentage sucks because he has coached crappy teams. Basketball is a different breed than other sports, just because you win as a coach doesn't mean you're good. I mean, Mike Brown kind of sucks, but when you get to coach the Cavaliers (with LeBron) and the Lakers, your winning percentage is going to look good.

I agree, he was out of coaching for 6 or 7 years for a reason, he sux! We were out of our mind for bringing him in and now the old coot is just hanging on to try and get his son the job!

I disagree 100%. Hiring Paul Silas was a gift from God. Imagine where this team would be if Larry Brown was still coaching us. I bet we would have traded every single young player who did meet his absurd standards, and we would be floating in mediocrity with vets with horrible contracts.

It's hard to make **** shine in the NBA. If you have young, inexperienced players then it's going to be a rough road. We're rebuilding so the biggest thing is developing players, which as we have established is what Silas is good at. (Look at LeBron first, now Hendo, DJ, etc.)

Agree, he needs to be as far away from the NBA as humanly possible.

Oh, now. Coach Brown was great for this team when we hired him. He's the major reason we made the playoffs a few years ago. He just isn't meant to be coaching a team that needs to rebuild.
