Guys a joke. I hope he somehow accidentally chokes on his championship ring.


The guy sat out games in the Finals, faking injury. Hes a god damn joke.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

Shannon Brown hit every damned thing he threw up in the second half. We actually look like a team though. We have played quite well at home so far. So far there is a lot of energy and hustle in this team, even if the talent is not nearly where it needs to be. Could not really speak to the Dallas game, since it was on during a somewhat more impactful college football game.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

Yea, Charlotte easily could have won that game had Brown not turned into Reggie Miller for twenty minutes. If Henderson was out there they likely win, at least they play hard and get after teams on defense. As far as Haywood goes, the team needs him simply due to a lack of options: the alternative is Diop playing rotation minutes. This team needs a high-quality big man in the worst way.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

If they aren't going to pay Henderson (and I'm not sure that doing so would be a smart idea) they should be looking to flip him to a team that needs a swingman for a younger player or a first-round pick. The trade I love is some version of Henderson for Derrick Williams, but Enes Kanter or Derrick Favors would be fantastic as well. Just don't think it's a great idea to give Henderson Aaron Afflalo money when you're this early in a rebuild.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

So, there's been a serious amount of luck resulting in an incredibly soft schedule, but the Cats are 4-3 to start the season, even after losing Henderson early. They're at least playing hard every night and are a relatively athletic team that's active on defense. Sessions has been way better for them than I expected, and Tyrus has at least not been as bad as I originally thought. They're still going to have a very low overall win total, but all may not be lost.

In other news, Charlotte swapped Matt Carroll for Hakim Warrick. Given that Warrick's salary this year is only a bit more than Carroll's, and his salary next year isn't guaranteed, I like the move. If nothing else, he's another deep bench big that pushes Tyrus for minutes and keeps him focused, and also acts as insurance in case Thomas turns back into a crazy person.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

Derrick Williams is a bum and worse yet he's a bum on the contract of the Number 2 Overall pick. Henderson can play. He's a very good two-way player. We're not trading him for a bum.

Strange to say it, but the Bobcats seem to have put a very nice little product on the floor so far this season. They are a fun team to watch, they get up on people and they attack the paint. Hard to say where it leads though. Right now we lack the talent to do more than be a team that plays hards and gets scrappy wins against teams on the bottom of the barrel. We need to get a lot more talent and it's hard to see how we do that without getting top picks in the draft.

I assume this is in response to the Tyreke Evans thread. Henderson's a nice enough player if you're just asking him to be a role-playing starter, but he doesn't have the upside to be a major piece when building a team and he's due for a new contract. If he'll settle for $5-5.5 a year he'd be worth keeping around, but I suspect he's going to be looking for Afflalo-type money. If you're not in love with Derrick Williams, fine, but with Henderson and Mullens both up for extensions this summer, Charlotte may be best served putting out feelers on the trade market for one or both. Locking up role players to long term deals before you have your core players in place rarely works out.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

So the Cats have taken advantage of a soft schedule to open the season 5-4(without Henderson), with a winnable game against Toronto coming up......Tyrus Thomas is out two to three months with a torn muscle in his calf, making the Hakim Warrick trade a real bench-saver......Kemba and Sessions seem to work well as a tiny backcourt, even though it sometimes looks like they're playing pickup ball out there......Mullens has been both a very pleasant surprise and horribly aggravating, as he's rebounding well(9 a game) but shooting 5 threes a game at a very low clip....

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

Up 18 and lost in overtime. We scored something like 5 points in the last 4 minutes. Just can't get past this win total from last year

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

Couldn't keep Portland off the offensive glass. If Charlotte had limited the second-chance opportunities the Blazers never would have even seen overtime. Bad loss, can't give away what would have otherwise been a solid outing like that.

Re: Bobcats Game Discussion for November

I guess we had a huge lead in that game last night. I wasn't feeling great and I slept through most of it, but I woke up in time to see the end. We had like four chances to win it at the end. Looked like Biyombo still plays well against Howard. It would be great if he could perform against the rest of the league the way he does against the Big Headcase.
