Dave Berri makes the case that the Bobcats are likely to improve up to a level of solid mediocrity next season, and it doesn't even involve any wildly unorthodox statistical claims. Have I mentioned how demoralizing the Wizards' lack of offseason moves has been? I can easily imagine not making the playoffs now. I'm not sure there were any brilliant moves left on the table, but the team could have used something.
