That's the 3rd time in the past 3 months I've heard the rumor that MJ will suit up for a game or two for the Cats this season. Maybe Stern (and the owners) will waive the rule and allow it.

I hate these guys more than anybody else on espn. Not bc of this. But bc they are just stupid. Jalen rose is a terrible analyst and knows next to nothing about teams unless they are the heat or another championship team. And bill is just outright stupid. Who's a boston homer.

Is rather listen to Charles Barkley.... Atleast he's funny.

Bill Simmons is and has been one of the best things for sports media...who cares he is a homer for his hometown team..

Grantland, 30 for 30, his podcast and his Page 2 column back in the day was essential reading/listening.

I just feel sorry you cant appreciate nice things...just kidding.

I love Bill/Jalen and agreed with most of what they said.

 

It seemed to me they didn't say too many negative things about the players, just hit on the running jokes about the Bobcats being terrible in general. And MJ being terrible. 

 

They didn't mind the Al signing, Bill liked the Zeller pick/Jalen thinks he's going to win ROY, said Kemba could be the 3rd guard/guy on a title team one day, and MKG has potential, just can't shoot. All fair analysis IMO.

 

 

As for MJ suiting up for a game...Jalen does know some things, so it shouldn't be completely dismissed. ESPN the Mag's article on Jordan last year was heavy on MJ wanting to get back to his playing weight, potentially to get back out there. 1 game, the jersey sales, the shoe sales, the publicity, the ticket prices...yeah, Jordan could line his pockets from that. I just hope they release a Hornets edition jersey as well as the Cats version.

That vid was enjoyable.  They should do multiple series for different teams-leagues.  

 

They're goofy, know what they're talking about and mix it with casual conversation really well.

It was basically 11 mins of trolling, as were the previous 4. If you're into it, good. If you want real analysis, don't waste your time.

They do one for every team. Trolling? Ok

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
