Nah, I think Cam is closer to LeBron than Howard. Dwight, while an impressive specimen, is limited.

Interesting both Cam and Dwight Howard both have a lot in common.

 

Both are viewed as immature by the media.

Both have the nickname superman.

Both are viewed as team cancers by the media.

 

 

Hopefully Cam/Dwight prove the doubters wrong this year.

 

I have never heard of Cam being called a "team cancer". Can you give some examples?

You know the Cam sitting on the bench by himself with a towel on his head.

His after game press conferences.

Immature doing the Superman chest rip while losing the game.

 

They don't actually call him a team cancer, but they throw this stuff out as being a team cancer.

That's examples the media uses as being immature, but not a "cancer".

Doesn't being immature play a part in being a team cancer?

 

TO was considered a team cancer why? His attitude/immaturity.

 

It's not like TO was a bad guy off the field.

 

 

Personally I don't think Cam is a team cancer, he just hates losing and doesn't know how to deal with it with the media. I know he will only get better and he has learned from his mistakes last year.

It doesn't matter what gif you decide to use, you're wrong.

Dwight is an athletic center but he's still just a center. There's a reason why Howard is not a forward -- his offensive prowess is abysmal from anywhere that's not under the rim. Sorry, but horrible comparison. Great shot blocker and rebounder, but limited.

LeBron is the much stronger comparison.

I was watching a replay of the Alabama Auburn game during Cam's Junior year. Alabama was up like 24-0 or something....yep you guessed it. Shots of Cam with a towel on his head. I guess he was being immature when he lead his team back to victory that day. Those scowls and outbursts of frustration clearly cost them that game...

Hey man I'm all for it. I love Cam but he was a little immature coming into the league.....like most if not all of us are/were at his same age. You can see him maturing and growing as a leader this summer and if Jerry West's (alleged) involvement helps in any way then bravo. Either way Cam has seemed to grow and that bodes well for us Panther fans.

I just want to see our team as a whole come together this year and get us back into the playoffs.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
