Who said anything about the Hornets? (other than Michael Jordan) This is a thread created by a so called Bobcats fan who mentions that it would be great to see a team other than the Bobcats in the NBA finals. I just think that is weird.


As a fan of the NBA, I think it would be great to see a Heat vs. Clippers Final. Many others agree.

Your not a bigger Bobcats fan than me, if you were you wouldn't comment about how cool it would be to see a team in the Bobcats division in the finals.


Arent you the guy who said...

KT- the reason that no one clowns you about the Bobcats is nobody gives a fug about them. The Bobcats go unnoticed in their own city. Charlotte is indifferent about the Bobcats.


http://www.carolinah...nd/page__st__30

Now you're the biggest Bobcat fan in the world and wrote the Bobcats fan etiquette handbook. Just as I predicted months ago, you Hornets nostalgists are flip floppers and arent loyal to anything. Soon as the Bobs start winning you cling to their success and claim Bobcats, then when they lose, you're a Hornets fan and Anthony Davis is "your man". FOH, we're hip to your act and disloyalty Jgib.

You could create a thread saying how cool it would be to see our 2 rookies shut down the best player in the world on our way to the finals.


What is stopping you from making that thread? I haven't seen you in any Bobcats gameday posts this year over in that forum.

LeBron James being the most popular basketball player in the world and NBA champion doesn't bother me, he seems like a good dude and has never gotten in one ounce of trouble despite being in the limelight since he was 12 or 13. Kudos to him.


Then you should understand why he's a lot of people's favorite player, including mine. And why he's one of the most successful athletes in the world.

The fact remains that I don't think it would be cool to see him in the finals, it would be "cool" to see MKG in the finals.


It would be cool, but until the Bobcats become legit title contenders its unlikely. It'd be cool to see the Panthers in the Super Bowl, but me pointing out San Fran vs. NE would be a good game doesnt make me any less of a fan. What is more likely is the second the Bobcats go on a 6 game skid you will come in here talking about Charlotte Hornets merchandise sales, why the city doesnt care about the Bobcats, and why changing our name and erasing everything is for the best at this point.

Unfortunately, the Bobcats do go largely unnoticed in Charlotte, Charlotte is indifferent about them. Do you dispute that? If so, on what basis?

That doesn't mean that I don't care about them, I have never flipped flopped on them as they have been my favorite team since the beginning. I was in uptown the day the name, colors, and logo were unveiled. I don't like the name but, I love the team. I grew up a huge Michael Jordan fan and nothing would make me happier than him getting a 7th ring.

I have never pulled for Anthony Davis to score a single point in the NBA, I pulled for the Bobcats to win the lottery so they could draft him( as did everyone else who pulls for the Bobcats) The front of his jersey doesn't say Charlotte so he is nothing more than any other player on an opposing team.


I don't need a 6 game skid to talk about the Bobcats merchandise sales. The Bobcats had one of the ugliest color combinations, nicknames and logos in the NBA and I thought they were disgusting. They ranked dead last in the NBA for a reason. Michael Jordan must have agreed with me because he changed nearly everything about them. The new jerseys look soooo much better but, I still don't see anyone in Charlotte wearing anything Bobcats related. I was in both Southpark and Northlake Malls over the Thanksgiving holiday and didn't see 1 person with any Bobcats gear on ( old or new). I will be interested in seeing if the new merchandise, winning record and future all star MKG will result in an increase in Merchandise sales. Go to a Sports Authority or Dicks Sporting Goods and tell me how much Bobcats stuff you see.. You won't need more than a few fingers to count. The Sports Authority I visited had zero Bobcats items and the Dicks had a pullover and the draft hat. 2 stores, 2 items. I would be willing to bet that the Bobcats finish no higher than 27th in merchandise sales this season.

LeBron youngest to 20,000 career points

LeBron James was the youngest player in NBA history to win rookie of the year, to record a triple-double, to score 1,000 points, to score 10,000 points, to win MVP honors at an All-Star Game ...

You get the idea.

His latest youngest-to-do-it milestone could come as early as Wednesday. He needs 18 points to become the 38th NBA player to score 20,000 in his career. If it happens Wednesday when the Miami Heat visit the Golden State Warriors, James will be more than a year younger than anyone else to reach the mark.

"You look at how many players have come through this league, the history of the game," James said. "That 20K mark is very limited. How many guys have done that? It's very, very limited.

"It'll be big-time. I'm not going to shy away from that. I'm not a big stats guy as far as individual, but that'll be pretty cool."

James' teammates say he could have reached 20,000 even faster.

"If LeBron was a different kind of player, he'd have a lot more points by now," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. "He's so unselfish. We give him the ball enough to score more. He just won't do it. We've had the discussion. We've sat down at dinner and we both said, `Sometimes, I wish I had it in me.' We talk about it, we joke about it, but when the game comes he's unselfish."

Considering James has scored at least 18 points in 74 of his last 75 games, including playoffs, the milestone would seem likely to be met against the Warriors. It's the next-to-last game of a struggle-filled road swing for the Heat. Miami is 1-3 so far on the trip, yet still remain a half-game ahead of the New York Knicks for first place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Maybe a little celebrating is exactly what the Heat need right now.

If James scores the historic 20,000th point on Wednesday, he will have done so at the age of 28 years, 17 days. According to STATS LLC, the youngest to date to score 20,000 points was Kobe Bryant, who got there when he was 29 years, 122 days old.

And only Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain (29 years, 134 days) and Michael Jordan (29 years, 326 days) reached the milestone before turning 30.

"LeBron can think about shooting, then he'll see one of his teammates are open, and then he makes the right play and gets the ball to them," Wade said.

From the time he started playing basketball, it's been driven into James' head that there's far more to the game than scoring.

Imagine if that wasn't the case.

It's a topic that some of his Heat teammates have debated more than once in recent weeks. The hypothetical scenario: What would happen if a plan was concocted to get James 35 shots in a game, or 40, or even more? How many points could he score? James has taken more than 25 shots in a game only once so far this season. Entering Tuesday's play, there's been 61 other instances of an NBA player shooting that many.

"LeBron taking 40 shots? Forget it," Heat guard James Jones said. "It's never happening."

He's probably right.

Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and James Harden are the top four scorers in the league this season, shooting a combined 48 percent. James is fifth entering Tuesday's play, shooting a career-best of nearly 55 percent.

"If you talk to all the basketball `people,' I'm not much of a scorer," James said. "When the conversation comes up with the best scorers in the game today, I'm never mentioned. Ever. It's Kobe, it's KD, it's Melo, it was D-Wade, but they don't talk about us anymore. When you talk about scorers, I never get mentioned."

In terms of games played, James could be the seventh-fastest in NBA history to join the 20,000 club.

Wednesday will be his 726th regular-season game. Chamberlain needed only 499 games to score 20,000, followed by Jordan (620), Oscar Robertson (671), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (684), Elgin Baylor (711) and Allen Iverson (713). If James gets it done on Wednesday, he'll reach the 20,000 mark one game faster than Shaquille O'Neal did.

"It shows, first of all, that I've been healthy," James said. "It shows that I've been fortunate enough to be on the floor and I've been able to work on my game. I've been able to work on my game and everything that I've worked on, I've been able to transfer that to a game situation. And I've had some teammates as well that have taken a little pressure off me, or I've been able to take pressure off them, by using my talents to the best of my ability."

Abdul-Jabbar owns the NBA record with 38,387 points. James is already just past halfway to that total.

And by his own measure, James' career is probably somewhere around the midway point.

It's not a completely farfetched notion that James could leave the game as its all-time points leader, especially since he has said in recent years that his goal is to be considered the game's greatest player when he retires.

"That many points is not what it's about for me," James said. "If I happen to get there, it'll be cool. I don't think I will. I don't know -- 38,000 is crazy. If I concentrated on just scoring, then I could make a push at it."

Wade is certain that if James wanted that record, he could make a run at it.

"Obviously, no one's done it yet," Wade said. "But if he stays healthy, he's the one who could challenge it."

(Pre)Congrats to LeBron. He's an amazing player and the best all around player that I've personally watched play live. Kobe is my favorite player and I'd still take a prime Kobe over LeBron, and I'm not saying this to bring LeBron down and prop Kobe up... It leads me to my next point... LeBron is probably the best all around player ever. I'm a huge fan of his game. He's always super efficient, makes the right play, has an extremely high basketball IQ, and does everything very well. I hope that he continues his success.

LeBron sure did make Staples quiet last night. Did you guys see him lock Kobe down the last 4 minutes of the game? Kobe couldnt buy a bucket last night. 39 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block. LeBron is still the MVP. 12-6 all time vs. Kobe.

LeBron James bear-hugs a fan that hit a half-court shot worth $75,000


Away from the cameras, NBA players hit half court shots all the time. They try them in practice, sometimes on a coach’s dare to try and end practice with a miraculous 47-footer, and they’re often successful. In public, though? With 20,000-strong watching and other stakes on the line? The shots don’t fall too often. Especially when you shoot them hook-style, instead of the typical two-handed approach.

The Miami Heat were already up by an 84-68 score entering the fourth quarter, when one fan tried the rolling hook approach to nailing a half-court shot. The prize for sinking it was $75,000. What Michael Drysch didn’t know, should he stick the 47-footer, was that he’d get something more memorable than cash if his bomb went in:

Fantastic.

Drysch will get his $75,000, but he’ll also happily be forever known as the dude that LeBron James bear-hugged in the middle of an NBA game. LBJ doesn’t typically bear-hug Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and especially not Chris Andersen. Michael Drysch, however, got the treatment. And deservedly so. Nice touch, sir.

that Drysch is a 50-year old computer technician from McHenry, Illinois; a small town near the Illinois and Wisconsin border. Ira Winderman, reporting for the Sun-Sentinel, also passed along a few quotes from the clutch and clutching pair of half-court huggers:


"Ecstatic. Euphoric. Wonderful," Drysch said. "I put some spin on it.
''Nice way to meet somebody. I can't believe it.''
A good night made even better.
"That," James said, "was awesome."
[…]
"That was awesome, man," James said. "I was excited for him. When he wound up like that, I was like, 'Oh no, there's no way.' And then when I saw it in the air, I was like, 'Oh, that's got a chance.' I was happy to be a part of that."
And, as Wade pointed out, it was with no practice, no warmup.
"You kind of get jealous," he said. "The place erupted. It was like when we won the Finals."
Asked what James said amid their embrace, Drysch said, "He just said, 'It was a great shot.' Maybe I'll be an assistant coach/mascot."
As for his earnings, he said it would go to paying bills and getting his car fixed.

Also, on top of the $75,000 Drysch earned, Carmex (a lip balm company that is badly needed on the Illinois/Wisconsin border; perhaps not so much in South Beach) matched Drysch’s winnings with a $75,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America – a foundation near and dear to LeBron James’ heart.

Game in hand, hero in building, the Heat went on to outscore the Detroit Pistons by a 26-20 count in the fourth quarter to build towards a 110-88 win. James finished with 23 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in only 33 minutes, but he missed his only three-point attempt of the contest.

Perhaps Michael Drysch can lend some guidance or tips to LeBron. He only charges $75,000 per session.

King T- I disagree with you on almost everything you post... But, LeBrons reaction was awesome. That was pure joy and happiness, it wasn't anything that a PR guy told him to do, it was honest, heart felt reaction and it was my favorite LeBron highlight I've ever seen.

It would be great to have him in a Charlotte Hornets jersey when his contract expires.

King at the White House


Out of uniform and looking dapper, Miami Heat players were honored Monday at the White House by President Barack Obama, a basketball fan who gushed over the play of team stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

In the packed East Room of the White House just before 2 p.m., Obama recapped the team’s road to victory in last year’s NBA championship, as 25 players, Coach Erik Spoelstra and team owner Micky Arison stood behind him.

He singled out James’ performance during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, describing it “as one of the best in basketball history.”

He also kidded Wade about his outfit, a gray suit worn with stylish-sneakers. At one point, James asked the president if he could say a few words.

“Hey, it’s your world, man,” the president answered.

James praised his team and expressed excitement at being at the White House.
“Mama, I made it!” he said.

MIAMI (AP)—LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to score 30 points and shoot at least 60 percent in six straight games, and the Miami Heat held off the Portland Trail Blazers 117-104 on Tuesday night.

“I’m at a loss for words,” James said in a televised postgame interview. “Like I say over and over, I know the history of the game. I know how many unbelievable players who came through the ranks, who paved the way for me and my teammates. And for me to be in the record books by myself with such a stat—any stat—it’s big-time.”

James has made 70 of his past 96 shots, over the past six-plus games. According to the Heat, only Adrian Dantley and Moses Malone had done the 30-point, 60-percent streak in five straight outings before James joined the club.

Now he stands alone.


Heat have won all 6 games during this streak. LeBron has scored at least 20 points in all 49 of his games this year except 1, a January 10th loss to the Blazers. He had 15 that night. 28 years old and already a first ballot HOFer, how many athletes can say that? Looks like King is well on his way to his 4th MVP award in 5 years.

I agree that LeBron is amazing and easily a 1st ballot HOF'er at 28 years old, but I'm not sure that he is "well on his way to his 4th MVP award in 5 years". He has a lot of competition this season.

He's now shooting 56% this season and scoring 27 ppg, as well as averaging 8.1 rpg and 6.9 apg. Just wow.
