Don't give you hopes up just yet Bobcats fans.

Yep, that's right Charlotte might have a shot at Davidson guard Stephen Curry.

Stephen Curry was back in his hometown of Charlotte June 4th taking shots in the practice gym, with his father courtside.

The practice gym is only a few miles away from where he grew up and about 30 minutes from where he was a college star at Davidson.

The Davidson guard netted an amazing 414 three-point shots in three seasons with the Davidson Wildcats.

Also, Brown and other coach's dismissed the regards of him being too scrawny to play a 82 game schedule in the NBA.

Coach Brown was also impressed with how quickly Davidson guard Stephen Curry picked up concepts on offense and defense that he introduced during workouts.

Curry said this after the workout, “I have a great IQ for the game. The terminology, picking up things and the footwork, things like that, I can pick it up pretty easily. That’s going to make me a better player down the road.” 

These are the signs of a very confident player.

He thinks wherever he may go he can make a positive impact in his first season.

After his workout with the Bobcats he also said, “If I could be picky, yeah, it would be nice to have that kind of setting: Madison Square Garden.

I wouldn’t mind being home here in Charlotte or anywhere else. New York would be fun with the legacy up there, trying to turn that team around.” 

He also made it clear to everyone that playing for New York Knicks and coach Mike D’Antoni’s fast-paced offense is his top choice.

Many people also doubt that he will be around for the No. 12 overall pick which the Bobcats have, with his performance in the combine and his great perimeter shot.

So if the Bobcats don't acquire Stephen Curry then who will they draft?

Well, the Bobcats have shown interest in Pittsburgh's big man Dejaun Blair.

He would be a great compliment to Boris Diaw and the other post players of the Charlotte Bobcats. Who ever Coach Brown and the Bobcats decide on I think that they can come in an immediately make a impact on this franchise.

I would like to hear all your regards to how you feel about Stephen Curry coming to the Bobcats as well as Dejaun Blair. 

Do you think either one would be a good fit for this team?
