Eye on Basketball Podcast: Charlotte Bobcats' offseason report
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the Charlotte Bobcats' offseason moves, what Cody Zeller could be, and their decision to pseudo-tank.
Matt Moore joins me today to talk about those Charlotte Bobcats, who are soon to be the Charlotte Hornets. I'd like them to be a hybrid called the Charlotte Hornetcats, but that's a debate for another time (seriously though, a cat with a stinger and wings!). How did their offseason go? Was signing Al Jefferson a good thing that the franchise needed to break out of their funk or did it ruin their chances at tanking and grabbing a big prospect in the next draft?
Speaking of draft prospects, what do we make of the Cody Zeller pick at 4 in the 2013 NBA Draft? Should the Bobcats have gone with Ben McLemore or Kentavious Caldwell-Pope or even C.J. McCollum to fill a perimeter need with a better player or was adding mobile depth inside the right move? What's the NBA comparison for Cody Zeller? What Byron Mullens was supposed to be? A hobbled Antono McDyess? Would you rather have Josh McRoberts?
We discuss all of that, plus a battle with a bee, child care, and the draft history of the Bobcats.
