1. What significant moves were made during the offseason?

...But enough Sam-Bashing, the next key addition that was made was the hiring of Larry Brown. He is exactly the type of coach this team needs. He may be a little nutty, he may like to wear bibbed overalls, but any coach with 1000+ wins and a championship at the NCAA and NBA level is fine by me. His resume demands respect from the players and as plus, at his age he is unlikely to bolt for greener pastures. This in all likelihood is his last coaching gig.

2. What are the team's biggest strengths?

Relative to last season: Having an actual backup point guard. Having (fingers crossed) an actual power forward (please stay healthy Sean). Having a real coach. Almost having a semblance of depth, with viable backups at 4 of the 5 positions (the 4 excluded).

But relative to the rest of the league: That gets a little trickier. So, how about this? If Gerald Wallace bounces back to playing a more well rounded game with Larry Brown in town, the Bobcats will boast 3 players who are borderline All-Stars with Jason Richardson, Gerald, and Emeka Okafor (someone besides Dwight Howard has to be a center in the East). I guess those 3 players are each individually strengths of the team, in that they are the 3 best players. How great a strength...well, note the border-line part.
