Grading the efforts of talented players on a struggling, rebuilding Charlotte Bobcats team isn't easy.
There are a number of factors to contribute, but determining whether a guy's numbers are inflated or deflated due to the lack of talent surrounding him can be difficult.
There is also the fact that the players must be graded relative to their own talents. In other words, did the player show strides in his individual game? Did he improve despite residing on a Charlotte Bobcats team that won just 21 games?
The Bobcats were horrible again, on both ends of the court. The team ranked 28th in offensive efficiency and dead last (30th) in defensive efficiency.
There were few positives to be drawn from a season which was only better than the last because it would be difficult to be any worse.
'Cats fans are taking solace in the fact that the team avoided having the league's worst record once again.
Charlotte will have a high lottery pick since they have the second-best odds at the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft. But right now, let's give attention to how their current guys performed in an attempt to gain perspective on where Michael Jordan should go with this rebuilding effort.
