The Charlotte Bobcats, this name has disappeared in the NBA.
The current name is the Charlotte Hornets. It seems that the Charlotte people really have a soft spot for the Hornets. The last Hornets have moved to New Orleans, and then changed their name to the Pelicans.
These two teams have no relationship or origin.
The Bobcats are the latest team to be established in the NBA. When the Bobcats were established, the first problem the league had to solve was naturally how to gather players for the Bobcats to play.
In the end, the league gave a draft pick and a policy of selecting players from each team, in which the draft pick is the protection of the top three picks.
However, I was not lucky at the time, and only got the No. 4 pick. In the end, the Bobcats packaged and traded the No. 4 pick and the No. 33 pick in their hands to the Clippers, and won the second pick. Let’s look at the hot spots of that year
The No. 1 pick was actually not Howard. Howard was just a kid at the time. High school players entered the draft. At that time, people generally believed that Okafor was the biggest No. 1 favorite, but the Magic felt that Howard had more potential, which made the Bobcats
The team won Okafor, but according to the careers of the latter two, Howard is indeed stronger.
As for the second item, selecting players for each team, it is more interesting. In fact, it is to let the Bobcats get enough 15 players to play.
Each team has its own protection list. Otherwise, the Bobcats can really make up a super lineup like Kobe, Kidd, James, Duncan, and O’Neal. In the end, the Bobcats selected a bunch of players from each team.
But there are also some players that teams want to deal with, such as Gerald Wallace.
And Brezek, together with Okafor, indeed form a team that can still play, but other than these three players, they are basically the patron saints of drinking fountains. We are used to guarding drinking fountains. You let me
Playing on the field, I’m sorry I really can’t do it.
In the end, the Bobcats also had a record of 18 wins and 64 losses, ranking second to last in the league.
It is worth mentioning that the league also limits the salary space of the Bobcats, otherwise the Bobcats can open a super contract at will to steal players from the free market.
After Jordan took over the Bobcats, they changed their name to the Hornets. Although they have made some progress over the years, they are still tied to the word “big belly”.
Especially in the draft, the Bobcats played poorly with a good hand, and they couldn’t find a second player except Walker.
It seems that Jordan’s vision is really bad. On the other hand, the Thunder, after changing their name from the Supersonics to the Thunder, rose rapidly through the draft, and the players they selected even set an NBA record.
The Bobcats don’t have a big ball market, and the players who come here to play are either old-age players or stunned youths who admire Jordan. It seems that the Hornets still need to work harder to change.
