I have loved this pick up from the beginning and I really hope we can find a spot for him on this team going forward.

Several weeks into the regular season the Bobcats brought Adrien back. He’s the least acclaimed and lowest-paid of four Charlotte power forwards. He’s also the starter, at least until the injured Byron Mullens gets back in shape following a month off with a sprained ankle.

Adrien beat out Tyrus Thomas and Hakim Warrick for minutes, despite those two costing the Bobcats a combined $12 million this season. Thomas and Warrick are more talented, but Adrien won over Dunlap by being more intense, consistent and rugged.

“Predictable, physical,” is how Dunlap describes Adrien, who played college ball at Connecticut. “He’ll get in a crowd and get a tough rebound. He gives you someone who will show up every day.”

I saw his name in the box score a while back when he had some good stats and didn't even

he is a full effort guy that is willing to do the dirty work. think a worse rebounding reggie evens. I like him and hope he has the opportunity to stay on for the league minimum as a 11/12th man.
