I found the problem with our team...

 

It's our f*cking bench... we can be in the game but then Clifford goes to the bench and switches all five starters out for bench players and our bench is so bad that we can't compete...

 

We need a better bench... hopefully our late draft picks can help us out.

Since the Heat and Nets are playing tonight with nicknames on the back of jerseys, I thought it'd be interesting to suggest nicknames for the Bobcats players for such a game.

 

Kemba Walker = Kemba ba (I call him that after the EPL player named Demba Ba)

 

Gerald Henderson = The Victim ("Gerald is the real victim here" - Coach K)

 

Bismack Biyombo = Kunta Kinteh (Credit QCB from wfnz for that one)

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist = Hyphen 

 

Ramon Sessions = Sesh

 

Al Jefferson = Prez or Big Al

 

Ben Gordon = BenGo

 

Josh McRoberts = Mac

Not in this game, Kemba, CDR, Jefferson, McBob and Henderson are -17 or worse in +/- in this game.  It's actually just as much fault of the starters then the bench. Neither are very good and while the starters might be able to score a few points, Jefferson is horrible in defense, same with McBob. Kemba and CDR are bleh defensively and Henderson is good most of the time. 

 

 

Otherwise it's horrible, easily a bottom 5 starting lineup in the NBA. Possibly the worst bench in the NBA as well. 

 

Hence why a bad season and those three draft picks were so important, this team is more then a player away from being decent in most seasons. 

 

 

Just for example, the Wolves aren't very good and I'd take Love over anyone on the Bobcats, Pekovic over Jefferson, Martin over Henderson and Rubio and Kemba are a wash. They just are good a different things, but not all around good players yet. The only ehh player that starts for them is Brewer.

I watched the game unfold right before my eyes, I don't you need to tell me what the box score says when I have watched the entire game.

 

We were down 28-29 at the end of one and them Clifford started the second quarter with all subs except CDR and Minnesota got out to a quick 15 point lead. 

 

Once they got up 15, the game was over.

I'm watching Kemba came back in when the team was down 8 at 30-38. Down 11 when Jefferson and McRoberts entered back in the game. Henderson entered the game at down 13 at 47-34. Most of that scoring and non ability to score was with most of the starting lineup in the game. In the last 5 minutes of the first half against the Bobcat starters the Wolves scored 21 points. It would've been worse had Tolliver not been in the game for offense in place of CDR. 

 

21 points in 5 minutes..... <scored against the Starters, before the starters came back minus Henderson it was just an 11 point game. The game ended shortly there after when the starters didn't score a single point for over 3 minutes.  Needless to say Kemba and CDR were in for most of the lopsided scoring.
