The Charlotte Bobcats aren't a very good team. I'm one of the biggest Bobcats fans you'll probably every hear of, and even I can't look at this team with optimism to inspire the masses.
But they definitely got better this offseason.
They added some very important pieces through various means this offseason, addressing some of their most glaring holes...of which they have many.
The biggest addition was Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who the Cats selected second overall in the draft.
He has to prove his worth before I completely buy into all of the hype, but all signs point to a very hardworking, athletic, high-energy and coachable player who is capable of being a star.
Considered a consolation prize as the Bobcats lost out on Anthony Davis, there is a chance that he could become a better player than Anthony Davis.
This was one of the deepest drafts in the history of the NBA, with the grand prize being Davis. But there are some who believe the runners-up in the draft lottery were the real winners.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has the tools and the attitude to win the Rookie of the Year award. He has an immeasurable ceiling that no one can predict, his attitude is everything you look for in a player and he is going to bring Charlotte out of the basement.
Rookie of the Year wouldn't be a bad way to start out a career. MKG can definitely pull it off.
Here are a few reasons why.
