Mag NBA preview: Bobcats

IN 2012-13 the Bobcats allowed 111.5 points per 100 possessions, worst in the NBA. Their response? Sign Al Jefferson and draft Cody Zeller, both of whom are defensively challenged. Big Al is a statue on skates (0.865 points per play on pick-and-rolls), while Zell is no Zo. Jefferson and Kemba Walker could be a dynamic scoring duo, but good luck keeping pace with opposing offenses. Of course, being bad isn't all bad ahead of the 2014 draft.
