2012-2013 NBA Division Preview: Southeast Division

Charlotte Bobcats (2012 record: 7-59)

Coming off the worst season in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats are poised to move things in the right direction. Despite not getting the number one overall pick in Anthony Davis, they settled for another Kentucky standout, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The 6’7”, 232-pound beast is a great finisher at the rim and should add a little attitude to a team who is desperate for points.

There were no big splashes in free agency this off-season for the Bobcats, but they did find a point guard in former Laker Ramon Sessions after letting go of D.J. Augustin. Sessions has said he couldn’t handle the pressure of being the Lakers’ point guard so Charlotte should be a much more comfortable fit for him.

With this team already hitting rock bottom last season, the only direction to go in Charlotte is up. Mike Dunlap is getting his first shot as an NBA coach and a bunch of new faces fill up the roster. Really, starting anew is the best thing this franchise can do.

Key Players: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Ben Gordon, Ramon Sessions
Key Additions: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Ramon Sessions, Ben Gordon, Brendan Haywood
Key Departures: Corey Maggette, D.J. Augustin
