Bobcats looking to turn the page on the past
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Bobcats have a new coach, a new color scheme and three new players.
Charlotte is ushering in what it hopes is a new era in Bobcats basketball.
Michael Jordan's Bobcats Friday introduced rookies Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out of Kentucky and Vanderbilt's Jeffery Taylor along with trade acquisition Ben Gordon. They hired Mike Dunlap as head coach a week ago and changed their uniform colors.
The Bobcats are coming off a 7-59 season, the worst winning percentage in NBA history.
Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says "It's a special time in our franchise" and "We're looking to the future, not what's in the past."
Says Kidd-Gilchrist, the No. 2 pick in the draft: "The past is the past here" and "I just want to win basketball games."
