What If Bad Things Gonna Happen?

Life is never easy and you can say the same about a grueling NBA season. When every team has its 82 games in April, there are some playoff-happy winners and, also, gone-fishing losers. As every radical environmentalist does, let me project only catastrophies for each NBA team in the upcoming 07-08 season. Yes, someone has to be the winner, but to write the worst scenarios for every franchise is always funny (not so funny if it's connected with your beloved team). Mmm, what if bad things gonna happen? Charlotte Bobcats know what I'm talkin'...
