Bobcats select Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with 2nd pick

Surprise, surprise. The word in the past few weeks is that the Bobcats have had Thomas Robinson on the top of their draft board. Well, that must have not been so. Charlotte selected Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the 2nd pick after trade talks with Cleveland and Houston failed.

The initial reaction with the pick was [...]

Watch closely: Counting down final hours until Draft

Plenty of teams have called the Bobcats about the 2nd pick. It’s nice to be able to sit back and field call-after-call, but the problem seems to be that Cho and the front office is asking too much for the pick. That likely means we want anyone who wants 2nd pick to take [...]

TrueHoop Network Mock Draft: Bobcats select Thomas Robinson at #2

With the second pick in the 2012 TrueHoop Network Mock Draft the Charlotte Bobcats select….Thomas Robinson.

This pick was not a fun one to make for a few different reasons. For starters, I think Bradley Beal is the second best talent in the draft, and secondly, I’m still in recovery mode from missing out [...]

Cavs calling about #2?; Bobcats workout Robinson and Drummond

Sam Amick of SI.com reported earlier today that many league sources he had heard from believed that Cleveland is going to call Charlotte in an attempt to move up to the #2 overall pick. The Cavs are being linked with wanting Bradley Beal at all cost and since it’s very likely he’ll go to [...]

NBA Draft Combine: Was anything revealed?

The 2012 NBA Draft combine in Chicago last week displayed many players that the Bobcats may not have on their radar for the #2 pick, but that may change if the team is able to move down in the draft by moving the #2 selection. Also, Charlotte has the 31st overall selection to prepare [...]

What to do with number two?

As everyone now knows, the Bobcats have the number two overall selection for the June 30th NBA draft and nobody knows who they will take with that selection, or if they’ll even take a player at number two. The possibility that the team could trade the pick is still very alive depending on what [...]

NBA Draft Lottery- 8:00 PM ET Wednesday on ESPN.

The highly anticipated NBA draft lottery is now just two days away for the Bobcats organization and it’s fans. It seems that the chatter has been about the coveted number one overall pick for months now, almost as if it’s already in our possession. That, though unfortunate, is far from the truth and history [...]

If tanking fails to bring number one pick, Charlotte will need a plan B…C…& D

Kentucky’s Anthony Davis may be the most sure thing in the NBA draft since Lebron James and the Charlotte Bobcats have at least guaranteed themselves the best odds to land him through the NBA draft lottery.

Having a 25% chance to get the number one overall pick is great and all after this disastrous [...]
