Bobcats have now won 4 of their last 5 games since the trade and have been in pretty much every game with a chance to win. Our 2 bigs Diaw & Okafor combined for 37 points, 17 rebounds, and 8 assists last night against the struggling Nets. Lets bust their ass once again on back to back nights in front of our home crowd. I'll be at the game with Princess Taharqa cheering loud & proud and would encourage anyone in the area to come out as well (although this one will be televised). GO BOBCATS!!!

Been impressed with this team since the trade. We're looking a lot better.

I still wish we could find a way to unload Sean May for somebody who might contribute.

Bell injured, Wallace goes off and we still lose, and the officiating was insanely horrible

Just got back from the game tonight. Yes the officiating was bad, but our PG play tonight was so shitty. I know they're using Ray as a 2 guard at times, but he takes way too many shots and his basketball IQ is so low for a 4th year player. G Force single handedly brought us back into the game in the 4th, yet his teammates didnt look for him in the final minute of regulation when he had a chance to win the game. Devin Harris went at Ray & DJ whenever they guarded him and he had no problems getting into the lane at all. After tonights game I think we need an upgrade at PG because on most nights the 2 PG lineup isnt gonna work.

I was at the game too and yes the refs fuging jobbed us. Couldn't believe the final foul on Wallace, then they T'd him up. But I agree on our point play. Felton and DJ had no answer to stop Devon Harris (and Carter).

Tonight was classic 5 on 8 basketball and the Bobs came out on the short end of it. I can't help but think that if MJ was sitting courtside, the officials wouldn't have given every close call to the Nets.

Only a complete idiot or Chapel Hill homer could think that Felton has what it takes to play PG in this league. He jacks up 17 shots, makes only 5, has only 2 assists, and 4 TOs. That is completely unacceptable for a PG. He is a complete fuging moron and his 4th quarter play and end of quarter/half play show the basketball IQ of a 5 year old.

The Bobs can complain about officiating if they want. They got screwed by the stripes. They can complain about lucky bounces of the ball. NJ had more than their share of lucky bounces. At the end of the game, they took the ball out of their most effective player's hands (Wallace) and put it into their least effective player's hands (Felton). That is why they lost.

This team seriously lacks a closer. We have nobody on the team that we can trust with the ball in the dying seconds of the game to take and make a big shot. G-Force is as close as we have and he's a slasher by trade. Jason Richardson was supposed to answer that bell for us and he didn't do it. He never even wanted to leave Golden State.

I hope that Augustin develops into that player for this team.... but we need to surround him with some talent too.

I have gotten tired of going into closely contested ball games and knowing that we're going to lose because the other team has a star player that will take it to the next level.

I wouldn't mind trading Felton and seeing if we can slip May in there too as some sort of lame package deal to get anybody we can.

We do need a closer. I agree.
