Key stretch upcoming for Bobcats

7 posts in this topic

The Bobcat's playoff hopes rest on the Bobcats preforming well during an upcoming stretch of games. Where the Bobcats will most definitely have to win a good portion of these games to stay in contention with a surging Pistons team.

 

 

 

Highlights of this key stretch will be seven games against teams with a record above .500 including Dallas tonight, Memphis twice, Miami, Indiana, San Antonio, and the Thunder. Along with two back to back games against the Pistons who are currently tied with Charlotte for the 8th and final spot in the Eastern Conference. The remaining games are against New Orleans, Brooklyn, and Cleveland. 

 

 

 

Meanwhile Detroit has a stretch of games that Include six games against teams with a record below .500 including Cleveland, Charlotte twice, NY, Boston and Minnesota. The other six games for Detroit are against Atlanta,  Dallas, Golden State, Houston, San Antonio, and Chicago. 

 

 

I would think the Bobcats to stay ahead of Detroit would have to win at least once against Detroit and then go .500 the rest of the stretch. Anything less then that would probably lead to Detroit passing the Bobcats and taking over sole possession of the final playoff spot. 

 

 

I would also expect any trades to take place at the start of this stretch at least before the two Piston games.

Then a four game series against the Pacers and then we can turn our attention to how we're going to improve the team with just the #28 pick.

Right now the Detroit pick belongs to Charlotte, it's currently projected to be in the 10-14 range. If the Bobcats don't make any moves, I suspect they lose the majority of these games and fall into the Lottery themselves. Bobcats go 3-9 and the Pistons go 6-6 and the Playoff spot belongs to the Piston's and Charlotte has three picks in the draft. Their own pick around the 9th spot, the Pistons pick around the 15th spot and the Trailblazers pick in the mid to late 20's.

I was just being an a-hole.  I'm excited that they're potentially going to make some moves.  If they don't, I can't say that I'll be excited for them to try for the 8th spot.  That's not an original thought though.

If for whatever reason the scenarios work out where we end up getting 3 first round picks I dont see Charlotte holding on to all of them and playing three rookies next year the way Clifford has shyed away from playing the young guys this year. 

 

If we end up having all three I bet we make moves on or near the draft to get rid of two of the picks.

Getting rid of two first round picks, I expect a Howard, James level player in return. That's what the going rate is for a superstar level player 2-3 first round picks.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
