The Charlotte Bobcats are a team constructed right now to possibly play better in the near future since two of their big rebuilding pieces at this time appear to be rookie point guard Kemba Walker and big man Bismack Biyombo.
The Charlotte Bobcats currently possess the worst record in the NBA (3-20) and after losing by a record 44 points last night on the road vs. the Portland TrailBlazers, things are not looking so bright this season.
In a shortened season, the young Bobcats are out of sync, and head coach Paul Silas is trying to have them play hard, but all of the losing has to be taking a mental toll on the team.
With their performance so far this season, the Bobcats cannot continue playing through with their current roster in hopes of Walker and Biyombo gaining experience, since there is almost no chance of the team being in multiple “game-winning” situations.
President Rod Higgins and general manager Rich Cho have some nice pieces on the roster like D.J. Augustin, Gerald Henderson, maybe even Byron Mullens but the remainder of the roster is most likely expendable and should be used to bring in better players.
The Bobcats should look to improve their team so they can be competitive and help their rookies learn the NBA way of doing things in a more productive manner.
The bottom line is that the Bobcats should be in a position where they can compete in games for the most part, and those will be the best learning experiences for both Walker and Biyombo. Otherwise, things will continue to go downhill and it still remains unknown whether things will change for the better in the future.
The Bobcats need to look to bring in a better mix of veteran players (even if it is only temporary) that would allow rookie Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo along with the remaining younger players to make the most out of the remainder of this season.
The Bobcats cannot afford to suffer continuous blowouts and learn something positive from them.
