Oh, I am capable of seeing the big picture as everyone else but you is. David Lee put up 20 points and 12 rebounds against the Magic so he is capable of playing against Howard. The Knicks like the Timberwolves have no perimeter threat, all of their game comes from the Center and Forward position. As far as Lee not being able to bang well that statement is ludicrous because Lee averaged 2.4 rebounds more than Jefferson. The sad part about that is Jefferson has an 1 inch and 15 lbs. on Lee. Also the Magic is one of the teams the Bobcats play so we're not going after a player for the main reason of stopping another. With Lee being supported by "S-Jax", "The Force", and "TNT" the Bobcats would capture on their lack of size for quickness, toughness, and pure athleticism. David Lee is far more athletic than Jefferson. He is quicker and reacts faster, if I wanted a player like A.J. I would have called Fat Albert.

Quit arguing with me, your points are null in void, starting with your statement that David Lee a 2009/2010 NBA All-Star sucks.

You are a crazy, psychotic, dumb @ss that does not comprehend the slightest concept of basketball.


As soon as I saw you mention "20 AND 12", I stopped reading your post, because you still don't get it.

Numbers never tell the entire story, MORON.

I bet you believe those **NUMBERS** mean that Lee is a better player than Jefferson who averaged 17 and 9, don't you?

I bet you believe those **NUMBERS** mean that Lee would be a better fit for the Bobcats, don't you?

After all, 20 and 12 is statistically greater than 17 and 9.

By that logic, Kobe Bryant can't be the best player in the league unless he leads the league in scoring.

By your logic, the NBA Champion will always be the team that finishes the season with the best record.

NOTHINGGGGGGGGGGG else could have determined those records. Nothing that might be more important during the Playoffs, right? Best record must mean best team, right?

Better stats must mean better option, right?

WRONG, fool. You must be a caveman with that simpleminded view of reality.

Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard both only averaged 18 points, and 11 and 13 rebounds, respectively, this season. Is David Lee better than both of them, just because he might not have had as much help on his team as they did?

Did Lee's 20 and 12 produce better outcomes than Howard's 18 and 13? Likewise, do you believe Jefferson's 17 and 9 is the reason the Timberwolves were terrible?

LEARN CONTEXT, OKAY?!?

Give it up dude. Your SHORTSIGHTED fixation on numbers, and your inability to understand what creates a "BEST FIT" for a player on a team, i.e., the Bobcats makes you a terrible strategist.

A "BANGER" inside is a better fit for the Bobcats than a "SLASHING", clean up guy like David Lee. David Lee plays just like Bird Man, but most smart organizations would prefer to start a banger like Nene instead.

No different here. For the Bobcats: Jefferson > Lee.

End of discussion. Call me crazy. What I'm saying is still true. Your numbers are lying to you.

What is your problem @SS HAT!!! Lee can bang that is why he averaged 11.7 rebounds per game. Get that through your thick head and quit butt f*cking A.J. B*tch.

david lee is not a slasher. he relies on positioning and fundamentals. The bird man is an athletic energy guy, lee uses his basketball iq for good anticipation and instincts. quit comparing david lee to these crazy athletic guys. lee is like a taller version of d-blair down in san antonio. or should i say, d-blair is a shorter version of david lee.

I am about to DESTROY EC123's argument and break his heart with a simple fact about Al Jefferson. Big AL is actually better suited to play the 4. Al Jefferson despite EC's belief that he is the SAVIOR of the horribly coached and put together team that we love is NOT a "Banger.' He is a undersized center who get's abused by the larger more physical players. Al's knees are an issue like many big men in the game and his long term contract that escalates each year is a BIG reason why the T-Wolves are attempting to move him. The fact that NUMBERS and FACTS do not support your opinion does not negate the validity. But please continue to post your asinine musings in your trademark style.

AL JEFFERSON is the only player that could possibly help the poorly constructed and stupid Bobcats.

Anyone that disagrees with me is a MORON.

I am superior because i have a fully formed opinion that Centers are more important than any other position.

Such and such player that is a rare superstar every other team would want is comparable to AL JEFFERSON. (He is NOT)

READ A BOOK.

Al Jefferson > Chuck Norris

End of discussion i am a hard headed jackass.

My biggest issue with Jefferson is whether he is the 2008-2009 23 and 11 guy or the 2009-2010 17 and 9 guy with a bum knee.

He probably isn't an LB type of player, but LB gets the most out of his guys so I am not too worried about that.

BAD, BAD, NEWS!!!

Restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas is on New Jersey’s radar as a fallback plan and could get a frontloaded offer sheet that would end his brief tenure with the Charlotte Bobcats, league sources said.

Thomas has expressed a desire to keep playing for Bobcats coach Larry Brown, but it seems like owner Michael Jordan and GM Rod Higgins are willing to let Thomas get an offer sheet before making a decision on paying him. The Bobcats would have seven days to match after Thomas signs an offer sheet.

I'm told by someone with ties to the Nets that outgoing GM Rod Thorn (who's still in charge of spending their free-agent money) would have genuine interest in Tyrus Thomas if other options fall through. The Nets have misgivings about Derrick Favors' ability to start quickly at power forward.

The Bobcats and the agents for restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas continue talks that both sides describe as "cordial," but don't look for a quick agreement on a long-term deal. Agent Brian Elfus never anticipated that they'd have a deal in place when the NBA announces next season's salary-cap figure Thursday.

To hell with the luxury tax for right now, our #1 priority ought to be signing Thomas to a long-term deal.

Sources say that the Nets are strongly considering making an offer to either Tyrus Thomas or Luis Scola to fill their hole at power forward. Both Thomas and Scola are restricted free agents, which means that the Bobcats and Rockets can match any offer. ESPN.com
