even if we did beat those dwellrs like Indiana and Wizards and Timberwolves.. we still would be in a tough position to lose the 8th spot if we had it..

we are "the first NBA team in 12 years to close the season on a four-game road trip".. he didnt jump all over Bob or anything.. he said he hated to say it.. but it truely is partly his fault.. he obviously didnt have any faith in the team and just said "ah whos cares, we will be knocked out of the playoff hunt long before that 4 game road trip.."

he obviously thought that those games IF they were in Charlotte, would be low sellers for tickets since we would be, in his mind, knocked out already.. but now, he will most definitely lose out on possibly hosting 2 NBA playoff games in his arena..

basically what im saying is, he gave us no shot to make the playoffs..

He hired Larry Brown. That put the Bobcats in this position in the first place. If the Bobcats miss out on the playoffs it wont be because their last 4 games were on the road. These next 4 could all be at home and if Detroit and Chi wins out it wouldnt've mattered.

I respect your opinion. IMO, Bob is the best pro sports owner in the Carolinas. He actually gives a damn what his fans say and reacts accordingly. He's smart enough to know you think he's horrible, so he hires Jordan and Brown and gets the hell out of the way and lets them take 100% of the credit. As an owner I also love the fact none of his boys has ever had problems with the law and always give back to their community.

^^^ You know what that makes sense...but everyone jumps on Jordans back about his attendance and I never had a problem until recently.

My Little Story: Well ALL OF A SUDDEN when we're in the hunt he can actually make some games when before he was nowhere...also

when he is there ESPN only wanted to show his pretty little mug...I mean they showed him getting excited more than they showed the ACTUAL BOBCATS!!! just frustrates me.

So your saying that an owner that built an arena, when nobody wanted him to, is better than Jerry Richardson, and Peter Karmanos? You say he listens to fans, yet he completely ignored them and built a big arena in the center of downtown Charlotte. He also stormed the Charlotte Observers office, and blamed the big buisness owners for not buying suites in the arena.

Saw an interview with Raja Bell on the news last night where he was taking some jabs at the situation/ownership. Said hopefully next year they may consider them good enough to have a possibility to make the playoffs. Also, said "they must be some good horses". It was actually pretty funny.

Nobody wanted him to build the arena? How did it get built then? Did he do it all by himself and lay down every brick? LOL. That arena has done more for downtown than BOA stadium has. Outside of Panthers football and the Meineke Car Care Bowl what HUGE events does Jerry Richardson bring to town? Bob Johnson is responsible for CIAA, ACC tourney, NCAA, and your favorite musical act coming to the Queen City. And I again I stress, he's an owner that demands his boys stay obedient to the law and not embarrass this city with scandals.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
