There have been quite a few players through Charlotte over the past 7 seasons. 71 to be exact. Well, that is, 71 to have taken the court during regular season play. There are only 6 that have been in Charlotte for more than 3 seasons. There has to be at least one or two that you wish hadn’t gotten away.
Perhaps, you would just hope that a guy who didn’t work out would have had some staying power. There have been a fair share of draft picks that didn’t pan out, some of them high, some of them low, but that had promise. Some guys you just think of as a personal favorite that your friends don’t really understand your being a fan of, but they’re somebody you had high hopes for.
I think we should finally take on a list here at RobertoGato.com. How about “The Top 10 Players Who Got Away.”
Submit your ideas either via Twitter, @therobertogato, on the site’s Facebook wall, or as a comment below: We’ll get going with this later on this week. Don’t make me come up with the list myself, I will put Linton Johnson at #1, believe me, I’ll do it.
