Do we have something to be excited about?

I know the Bobcats aren't making the playoffs or coming close realistically, but I think they are going to be much improved. Coach Dunlap seems like a hard nose guy, according to Rick Bonnell there have been practices recently of more than three hours, I believe one was four hours. This fits in with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who had a breakfast club put into place for guys who showed up early to weight sessions in the morning. That guy seems to have one of the best work ethics in the league and I feel like they are moving in the right direction. Also with the much improved shooting they have added in Ben Gordon, who is a knock down shooter, and also the young guy Jeff Taylor was a pretty good shooter in college. I really think Gilchrist is here to change the way people look at the Bobcats and going to change the way they look at themselves. With another year under his belt Kemba could really flourish in this new up tempo style that Dunlap claims he is going to run. This is the best way to win, in college football people run the spread because they are less talented and it makes defenses put odd formations and personnel on the field. I feel like that is how this new style is going to play out for the team this year. It also helps a lot that their division is pretty poor minus Miami. Playing against teams like Orlando and Washington four times should help increase win total. I think they can get to 25 this year, still probably bottom 5 in the league but it is immense progress over last year. Anybody else getting excited?
