Make no mistake, the Bobcats are not going to be good, they are lottery bound, but this past summer went out and paid big money for Al Jefferson to make themselves better. This years Bobcats (soon to be Hornets) are better than a year ago by a long shot.
Most thought Charlotte would be in the Wiggins chase as well.
The reason they are not all in on that plan is owner Michael Jordan doesnt believe in tanking for picks, he told the Associated Press.
I dont know if some teams have thought of that. Thats not something that we would do. I dont believe in that.
He then laughed heartily and said, If that was my intention I never would have paid (free agent) Al Jefferson $13 million a year.
