Bobcats trail by 48-65 early in the 3rd quarter.

The Bobcats seem to be headed on their way to 3-5. Bobcats' defense doesn't seem as good as it was last year, opposing players get wide open jump shots all game long. Another problem is the team gets an incredible amount of stupid fouls including loose ball fouls, illegal picks.

Bobcats look awful, imo. The offseason signings and trades messed up the team. Stevie Graham and Flip Murray weren't needed, all they do is take away from Augustin and Radmonovic's PT and both players seemed to do well in their roles with the team. Also with Augustin, Radmonovic, Graham and Murray, two promising rookies basically won't get any PT at all in Brown and Henderson.

It's still early on, maybe the team can come together and become a team that can compete for a playoff spot.

make that 48-74

people can say larry brown is a good coach, and he certaintly has the credentials, but seeing flip murray and raymond felton play one on one whenever they feel like it suggests otherwise. Also what is with Gerald Wallace dribbling the ball up court when he can't dribble? What is with Tyson Chandler not knowing how to set a pick?

This team is a mess for any fan of good basketball. If this is playing the right way, I'd take playing the wrong way at this point.

Bobcats got smashed tonight in Detroit 75-98. Ouch! 3-5 aint gonna cut it boys if we wanna be a playoff team. Somehow we gotta stop the bleeding and get back to picking up W's. Plenty of time left to get it done. The season is still very young.

losing to the pistons (a team that likely will fight for a 6-8 spot like us) in a blowout when their best two players aren't playing is not a good sign

i agree the season is young but if the team continues to disappoint i fear the team will make another self destructive personnel move and get rid of Gerald Henderson or Gerald Wallace (who probably has really high trade value atm considering his age, team first attitude doesn't need shots, fast break player, rebounding machine, etc.) by All Star break.

I had high hopes coming into this season, but those have quickly been dashed. Thus far, this team looks to be the worst Bobcats team I've watched.

There's gonna be a lot of trades coming up. Think we'll be saying goodbye to at least Bell, and hopefully not Crash.

Was flipping between this and the Hurricanes romp last night. Great time to be a pro sports fan in Carolina.

I thought the Bobcats looked pretty decent in their wins. Not amazing, but alright. But seriously, I know it's the Magic, and I know it's the Pistons, and I know its the...

But c'mon we gotta play better than that. I know we don't have that great scorer, but we've got to get set up on the offensive side better. The looks that we get are absolutely terrible a lot of the time.

yeah, we've played 8 games and we've been down 20 in i think 4 of them at some point. we're not keeping games close at all and a lot of that is not getting good shots for extended periods of time on offense.

at this point i'd take Allen Iverson and all his problems just to have a guy who can score 20 night in and night out.

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
