Everyone knows the Charlotte Bobcats haven’t been the most offensively gifted NBA team during their brief history. In fact, even when Gerald Wallace, Boris Diaw and Raymond Felton were around, this was a defensive-minded team that rarely lit it up on the offensive end.
However, if Charlotte plays their cards right and uses the right people, that could slowly change.
They already made a strong effort to get better on that end of the court. They brought in Ramon Sessions to rotate with Kemba Walker. Both guys can shoot and score the ball, and if Walker can’t distribute, we know Sessions can.
The future could also be bright with big man Byron Mullens, who has a nice jumper and mid-range game. Even star rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has some nice potential on the offensive end – although we may have to wait a while to see it really pay off.
But in the here and now, a good amount of the team’s offense is likely to come from the shooting guard position. Gerald Henderson was the starter last year and made a leap in his progression as a player. With a full off-season to further develop, there’s a decent chance he has a better all-around game, as well as a more reliable outside shot.
Bobcats like that word chance. That, or they cringe at the sound of it.
How about a guarantee?
