MMPG: Team of the Weak

Charlotte Bobcats

The Charlotte Bobcats had a relatively promising start to the season, but after winning seven of their first 18 games, they have lost six in a row and appear headed for another woeful season in the Queen City. The Bobcats are undergoing another incarnation after trading leading scorer Jason Richardson to the Phoenix for Raja Bell and Boris Diaw. The deal looks like a steal for Phoenix, with Bell's declining production and Diaw's consistent regression since he was the league's most improved player in 2006.

Larry Brown isn't in the Hall of Fame by fluke, but he has a serious challenge turning around the situation in Charlotte -- even with the impressive start to rookie D.J. Augustine's career. With the exception a 16-point loss in New Orleans the day it made the Richardson trade, the Bobcats have been competitive in their losses during this difficult stretch. The defense may improve with Bell and Diaw, but with Richardson gone, Charlotte will have a hard time putting points on the board. Signing Juwan Howard won't help much, either.

The Bobcats need someone in charge of the team who actually has a clue what they're doing. Jordan clearly hasn't learned anything about running a team since he was run out of DC.
