I'd rather give up Jackson than Wallace any day. But I doubt they'll want that, but who knows.

I think Okafor will be fine on this team and while not a true center, I think the combo of him and Tyrus would be pretty nasty and would give teams a fit with their shotblocking. If you have Okafor-TT-Wallace, that would be a pretty great front court on defense and decent on offense.

Also, Okafor has missed like ONE game the last 3 years, so he's pretty healthy and only like 27 years old.

We could have had that front court if we had not traded Okafor away for Chandler in the first place.

Chris Paul on the Bobcats minus Gerald Wallace = the Bobcats will SUCK, period.

What do you think Chris Paul is, a miracle worker?

Stephen Jackson STILL has an unreliable shot, but then you have no one to get the hustle points and rebounds that you need, and NO, Tyrus Thomas is not Gerald Wallace.

The objective is to BUILD a team, not destroy one.

Gerald Wallace is the FULCRUM, he's the pivot. A point guard is not that person, an All-Star glue guy SMALL FORWARD is the guy that balances out the line up, with the guards on one side of him and the inside guys on the other.

If you're going to get rid of anyone, it should be Stephen Jackson. You can more easily replace what he does, and you can replace what he does with Chris Paul who can provide the scoring at one of the guard positions, even if the Shooting Guard is not as good as Jackson.


I agree with you for once EC123, the Bobcats can not give up Gerald Wallace, Tyrus Thomas, or Stephen Jackson to make this trade possible if they want a real chance. We need to build a starting five before we build a bench, so if it takes the whole damn bench to get CP3 and Oak Tree then I am all for it.

But we aint giving up the FORCE

If they wouldn't take Jackson instead of Wallace, then the front office would be a fool if they did it.

The team would BE NO BETTER with Paul and no Wallace, then it would be with no Paul and Wallace.

That's how big of a deal that gapping hole at SF would make.

Take Ginobli off the Spurs and tell me how many Championships they have in the Tony Parker era.

Stephen Jackson is a LAZY PLAYER, unless the ball is in his hands. Wallace = more possessions (rebounds) and better defense.

If you can't get rid of Jackson instead of Wallace, then there should be no deal.

This is not to say I'm saying either has to GO, but if one did, that's what i think about it.

Once again Jackson, Wallace, and Thomas are untouchables!!!

Bleacher Report is a blog site and can have posts by anyone. Just because a Blog Site says the Bobcats "MAY" have to give up Wallace does not mean they "ARE"!!!

It doesn't have to "go", but if he gives up Wallace instead of Jackson, then he's making a mistake.

I did that on purpose. I am done arguing with you, you are entitled to you own opinion and that time I agreed with it. It was a good statement. The Bobcats simply cannot give up Wallace and still be successful.

you're saying the 'Cats would suck with CP3 and no Gerald? Really? Since when did Gerald start putting up Kobe or LeBron numbers?

And im not knocking on Gerald, I love the guy to death, my favorite player, but really, I'd take a franchise PG over Wallace any day. Paul makes EVERYONE on the floor better.

But like 8789 said, we don't HAVE to get rid of Force to get CP3. A Diaw, Dampier and Augustine trade with a first rounder would be hard to pass up for NOLA in my opinion..

NOLA also has Collison, who proved last year that he's more than capable of being a starting PG. They can clear so much cap room by taking Dampier/Diaw and giving up CP3 and Emeka.

Why would NOLA want to keep to starters at PG when they're in such financial problems? Im telling you, the stars are aligning for Charlotte!

They actually have TWO starting PG's, the difference is one of them is like 13 million a year cheaper.
