And now at the request of my friend and "Boss" Jake Cook, another "Special Comment" about why the Charlotte Bobcats didn't get the number 1 pick and settling for the 4th pick and why are we not getting any love in the lottery over the last couple of seasons. Last week we once again entered the dreaded NBA Draft Lottery hoping that we would get the #1 pick on the same night that Michael Jordan announced that he was changing the team's name to the Charlotte Hornets in the 2014-15 campaign. We were keeping our fingers crossed hoping that we would get the top pick overall, but we settled for a disappointing 4th as the Cleveland Cavaliers locked up the top spot and continuing our so-called curse of not getting the top pick. I WAS SO MAD, I WAS ABOUT TO FLIP OVER MY CHAIR AND CURSE THE YOU-KNOW-WHAT OUT OF THIS OUTRAGE THAT TOOK PLACE ON TUESDAY NIGHT ONCE THE DRAFT LOTTERY ENDED! IT WAS DISAPPOINTING, HURTFUL AND MORE IMPORTANTLY UPSETTING THAT THIS TEAM, THE CHARLOTTE BOBCATS DID NOT GET THE COVETED TOP PICK IN THE NBA DRAFT! THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE AREN'T GETTING ANY LOVE WHEN WE ENTER THE NBA DRAFT LOTTERY AFTER ONE DISAPPOINTING SEASON TOO MANY, LIKE THIS SEASON WHEN WE FINISHED A DISMAL 21-61 THUS ENDING THE FAILED EXPERIMENT OF MIKE DUNLAP!
THE DRAFT LOTTERY HAS NOT TREATED US WELL OVER THESE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, AND I AM SO SICK OF NOT SEEING US AT THE NUMBER ONE SPOT IN THIS MESS KNOWN AS THE NBA DRAFT LOTTERY AND AS A FAN, I AM STILL DISAPPOINTED IN NOT GETTING THE NUMBER ONE OVERALL PICK. HECK, IF WE DID HAD THAT PICK, WE WOULD BE SITTING ON TOP OF THE BASKETBALL UNIVERSE, BUT NO! WE ARE STILL A BUNCH OF "CELLAR-DWELLERS"! CELLAR-DWELLERS, YOU UNDERSTAND! WE ARE ALWAYS NEAR THE BOTTOM OR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LEAGUE WHENEVER WE HAVE A LOSING SEASON, THAT'S A CASE THAT WE'VE BEEN SEEING HERE IN CHARLOTTE OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, AND AS A FAN OF THIS TEAM SINCE THE BEGINNING, WE HAVE NEVER GOTTEN THAT CHANCE!
I am still not sold on us getting that 4th pick in the NBA Draft, and as a fan, it makes no sense that this draft lottery that took place on Tuesday was absolutely rigged so the Cleveland Cavaliers can steal that spot and put another dent in our misery when we enter the NBA Draft Lottery because of those ping-pong balls that tell us if our team will improve or fail in the next season, and once the verdict came down for us, it was going to be another long failing season. IN MY WORLD, IT WAS COMPLETELY A DISGRACEFUL DISAPPOINTING DRAFT LOTTERY BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL LOOKING AT US AS THE LAUGHINGSTOCK OF THE NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION, A TITLE WE'VE BEEN HAVING SINCE 2004, AND HECK, THE LOTTERY WAS RIGGED LAST YEAR AND IT WAS AGAIN LAST WEEK! LOOK AT THE 2012 DRAFT LOTTERY, WE HOPED TO GET THE NUMBER ONE PICK, BUT NOOO! IT WAS TOM BENSON, WHO TOOK OVER THE NOW NEW ORLEANS PELICANS THAT WANTED TO GET THAT PICK AND RUB IT IN OUR FACE! THIS YEAR, IT WAS "LITTLE NICKY" GILBERT, SON OF DAN GILBERT THAT WANTED TO CONTINUE THE BOBCATS MISERY OF NOT BEING ABLE TO GET THAT TOP SPOT IN THE NBA DRAFT LOTTERY!
The drama that took place on Tuesday was a disaster for us, but let's hope we can put that 4th pick in the NBA Draft to good use. Good Night, and Good Luck.
