Charlotte Bobcats Season Preview History
Charlotte Bobcats 2012 NBA Season Preview:
Michael Jordan’s not on the court, but as GM he has created a Bobcats team in his image: tough and gritty, but with a whole lotta finesse. The team is led by a tough veteran in guard Stephen Jackson, but their future is in point guard DJ Augistin and power forward Tyrus Thompson. Together they field a team that’s capable of scoring on any part of the court at any time, making them one of the more exciting teams in the NBA to watch.
2010-2011 Charlotte Bobcats NBA Preview:
Although they the Charlotte Bobcats made an early exit from the playoffs last season after getting swept by the Orlando Magic in the first round, the year had to be considered a success for Charlotte by Bobcats fans. The young team made its first playoff appearance in franchise history, and found a talented core of players that may be able to lead them back to the postseason this year in a highly competitive Eastern Conference.
Stephen Jackson provided a spark in the offense last season, and that should not change much. The 10-year veteran averaged 20.6 points per game a season ago, and dished out a respectable 3.7 assists per game. Jackson will be joined by Gerald Wallace, who has highlight reel ability and brought down 10 rebounds a game last season.
While Jackson and Wallace provide coach Larry Brown with veteran leadership, the team has a collection of young talent as well. Power forward Tyrus Thomas is a presence on defense, and rookie guard Sharron Sherron Collins should be able to replicate his success at Kansas. Forward Boris Diaw should be a factor as well, as he led the team with four assists a game.
2009-2010 Charlotte Bobcats NBA Preview:
The 2009-2010 season will be the Charlotte Bobcats' sixth year as an NBA franchise, and its second season under Head Coach Larry Brown. Brown and Bobcats fans are hoping the club gels this year to make a run at the Eastern Conference playoffs. Ten additional wins should get Charlotte a postseason berth and Brown's job is to get that done.
