Charlotte Bobcats - Contender or Pretender for the 2008 playoffs? This is a new series of threads I've started, to help pass the time during this lowly offseason. It's also meant to give us all something else to do instead of talking about this betting scandal and things related to it (we all need a break from it). I'll hopefully get through every team, and post a new thread every couple of days. For each team, we'll discuss whether they're a contender or a pretender, BUT each team's contender/pretender status is whether or not they'll make one more step further than what they did last year. Today's team is the Charlotte Bobcats.
