Default Has there ever been a less talented frontline?

The current Bobcats frontline is probably the most embarrasing I have ever seen watching NBA, there most skilled/best big imo is Josh McRoberts who for some reason only gets limited mins and other than BJ who can shoot fairly decent the others don't provide anything. They are undersized, can't D, can't score (BJ can a little) and there other skills are not worth talking about.

Bismack Biyombo: can't do anything on offense other than dunk and catching the ball is a problem, people says hes a decent defender but everytime I watch him he gets badly abused by anyone. There was some hype around him last year but to me he looks clueless and really should most likely be in the D-Leauge working on his game.

Jeff Adrien: way undersized, tries hard but not much else

BJ Mullens: Decent but probably would not start anywhere else but he can shoot it and probably has the most potential

Diop: could block shots before now is just there......I don't know why

Brendan Hayward: can D a bit his offense is pathetic.

Josh McRoberts: very decent skills/athlete but struggled in the NBA

There whole frontline combined averages 29points (12.5 of those are BJ's), The Bobcats seriously need to ethier draft a decent big or trade some of these scrubs away. They have nice pieces in Taylor, Henderson, Walker & MKG but there frontline players are nothing short of awful.

McBob is with the Bobcats? Probably from the best trade deadline ever.

Don't worry they just used their #2 overall pick to grab a defensive specialist. Brighter days are ahead.

I'm not going to give up on MKG. I still think he'll develop into a pretty good player. However, with the full aid of hindsight, they may be really kicking themselves in a few years knowing they could've drafted Drummond.

Worst rebounding team in league history (see my spreadsheet).

That rebounding probably had a lot to go with the fact Biedrins played in 33 games and non of there other bigs played more than 50 games that year.

I still take Biedrins, Anthony Randoplh, Tuiraf & Tolliver over the current Bobcats. But good find tho

The Bobcats roster is woeful. How many fu*king scrubs do they have? I dont understand how they have so many bad contracts, what the hell are they doing?

MKG was a horrible choice for them. They needed a decent big, or someone who can actually score some damn points. They've been an embarassment for years now, and should be kicked out of the league for being so shit.

Last season's Cavaliers are up there. Andy only played 25 games and besides him we had

Samardo Samuels, Ryan Hollins and Semih Erden.

at PF:
Luke Walton, Rookie Tristan Thompson, Old man Jamison and Luke Harangody.

Wow.

I remember Shaq being injured and the Lakers fielding a starting frontcourt of Samaki Walker and some guy whose last name was Samake. It was unspeakably awful.

Also, people forget that John Wall had to spend his rookie year with a frontcourt of Andray Blatche and Javale McGee. Both of them. On the same team. Starting. Yeah. That's a lot more talent than that Bobcats roster you list but....still.
