Screw It, Let's All Become Bobcats Fans

Kemba Walker can contribute immediately, Bismack Biyombo will be good eventually, and together, BISMACK AND KEMBA just made Bobcats fans excited about their team for the first time in... Forever, maybe? Probably forever. This is what happens when you hire a GM, Michael Jordan.

Kemba Walker may not turn into a superstar, but he's a solid piece to build on for the Bobcats. Likewise, Biyombo may never turn into a dominating force on the offensive end, but given time, he could turn into a pretty deadly weapon on the boards and on defense. Besides, this wasn't a draft with many superstars. What the Bobcats got instead were two solid role players, both of whom could turn into starters on a playoff team. It's a step in the right direction.

The Bobcats will lose again this year, and that's okay. Without Stephen Jackson, they'll probably lose a lot. That's even better. Ultimately, it'll give them a better chance at the lottery next year, when the draft will be loaded with superstars who went back to school in 2011.

In other words, the Bobcats just got the two best names in the draft (BIYOMBOOOOOO), two guys that everyone wants to root for, and two guys that could be perfect role players on a great team. KEMBA AND BISMACK. It's a good start. Then, when they get a superstar in next year's draft, the sky's the limit. (Like I said, we should all become Bobcats fans.)
