2009-10 Season Stats
The Bobcats apparently liked what they saw in Tyrus Thomas, enough to extend him. But all together now: Kwame Brown? At least he makes Erick Dampier expendable.
As expected, Bobcats passed on re-signing Raymond Felton, making DJ Augustin the guy at the point, but why didn't they just trade Felton at the deadline last season?
Bringing Eduardo Najera in and Thomas back will make a good defensive team even better. Until the Bobcats learn how to score in bunches, D will be their calling card.
Sherron Collins, a tough Chicago kid considered too small to be drafted, had a big camp and could press for time at point guard. Not sure if he can break into the starting lineup, but the opportunity is there.
After initially being open to taking the Philly job in order to be closer to family, Larry Brown decided to stay. It was the biggest upset of the off-season.
Without a first-round pick or money to spend on free agents, the summer was a rather bland one for the Bobcats. Well, at least until Kwame was reunited with Michael Jordan. Can you imagine if Jordan beats him one-on-one again in camp, 10 years later?
This team, after finally cracking the playoff ceiling, is still under construction. Losing Tyson Chandler was no big deal because he couldn't stay on the floor. The big hope is Thomas finally matures as a person and player and becomes worthy of being a high lottery pick, something Kwame never managed to do.
