This Is Why The Charlotte Bobcats Will Forever Be Terrible

WE’RE #2! WE’RE #2! WE’RE #2!

Look, Bobcats, I get it: you want something to be excited over. But this kind of hyperbolic joy after losing something? Not a good look.


And the video they have on the site makes it even more awkward. When you go to, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist vitals are displayed right below “#2 PICK,” giving the impression that the Bobcats have already settled on the Kentucky forward. While they very well might take MK-G, there are a number of other players also under consideration — as you discover when you click the video, which is a highlight reel of Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson, Brad Beal, Andre Drummond, Harrison Barnes, Perry Jones, and, hilariously, Anthony Davis. That’s wishful thinking!

BTW: Don’t miss our CRAZY GREAT season ticket deal! Please buy our season tickets! Please!

Let’s compare the Bobcats’ site with some other other teams that took top five picks.

The Hornets get their shine on, as they should: they actually got the #1 pick.


The Wizards announced their 3rd pick in a far more understated way than the Bobcats did — and without any awkward talk of the players they were considering.


The Cavs act like they’ve been here before, which is appropriate, since they had the top selection just last year.


Sacramento: “For the second time in three years, the Kings have secured the fifth choice in the NBA Draft.” #humblebrag? Or just kind of sad?
