While I'm thinking of it, everyone should give Al some credit on his defense tonight. For someone so criticized for defense, he has done a damn good job.

Dagger by Beverly. I guess I should be happy I care about these games, but it sucks to watch our team fall apart down the stretch consistently. Hopefully we can add a scorer somehow, we need one bad.

Now would be a good time to start a 4 game winning streak.

I was at the game tonight.

-the refs sucked

- it's a miracle this team is near .500. They stand around on offense and burn the shot clock hoping to get bailed out by Al or Kemba. Everyone else is a useless filler.

-Luke Ridinour is the worst on ball defender in the league.

-the entire game felt like the bobcats were a step or two behind. They tried hard but it wasn't translating into made shots. Again, see number two above.

-there's a reason mcroberts rode the bench at his other nba stops. Teams leave him wide open and he still can't make shit.

McBob- 35 minutes, 11 pts (10 shots), 3 reb

Zeller- 14 minutes, 10 pts (5 shots), 4 reb

Biyombo- 6 minutes, 5 reb




This is mind numbing. McBob must give some incredible head is all I can say. I hope Clifford enjoys pulling his hair while he polishes his knob because there is no other reason for him to touch the court. Zeller is a rookie & 10x better. All they're doing is hindering the development of the best draft pick the team has ever made. Zeller is very good.

Biyombo doesn't score, but he can block shots & rebound just as good, if not better, than anyone in the NBA.

Zeller & Biyombo should be getting all of the 4 minutes, as well as the 5 minutes when Al is out. Unless one of Biz, Cody, or Al are out there is no reason for that shitty ass McBob to touch the court.

I'm just throwing this out there just cause BP mentioned Melo, but Big Al was recently quoted as saying that his goal is to get big-time free agents to Charlotte.

Now I'm not saying we're going to get Melo but with around 20 million dollars to play with and the only obvious need being a back-up point guard... MJ and Big Al might be able to entice Melo to sign with Charlotte (remember Melo is an MJ guy).

Think about something like this...

PG: Kemba Walker, Shabazz Napier (2nd round pick), Jannero Pargo (re-sign)
SG: Gerald Henderson, Jeff Taylor, Gary Neal
SF: Carmelo Anthony (sign), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Chris Douglas-Roberts (re-sign)
PF: Cody Zeller, Josh McRoberts, Adrian Payne (1st round pick)
C: Al Jefferson, Bismack Biyombo, Brendan Haywood

Just my opinion but that's a top 5 team in the NBA.

That might be the worst defensive starting lineup in the NBA in a loooong time. You'd almost have to start mkg at the two(pray he gets a shot in the off season) and dump hendo on any team dumb enough to take him.

Also I don't see melo coming here unless we do something ridiculous like win a playoff series or two and even then it would probably have to be a sign and trade. Something like hendo Detroit's pick and Portland's pick because melo isn't likely to give up max money if its available which the Knicks will offer.

The Cats can offer just as much money if not more than the Knicks. The Cats will have around $20 million in cap space and are around $25 million under the luxury tax.

You're overvaluing the defensive aspect of the game. MKG averages the least amount of minutes from all the starters yet we still have a top give defense. Big Al has proven he can play defense, Henderson is a solid defender; Melo isn't great at defense but he makes up for it with his offense. Cody Zeller will also be a really, really good defender once he gets a little more muscle. He's made more great defensive plays than anyone on the roster. Kemba is really the only defensive liability on the court.

Also a sign and trade doesn't make sense when we can give him a max contract.

The Cats currently have 44 mil wrapped up in the following players...

PG: Walker
SG: Henderson, Taylor, Neal
SF: MKG
PF: McRoberts, Zeller
C: Jefferson, Biyombo, Haywood

- Pargo and CDR can each be signed for the min ($1 mil each)

- Our first and second round picks will make a combined $1.5 mil. That wouldn't be too bad if you could Napier and Payne for $1.5 mil.

That puts the Cats at $47 mil... The luxury tax is at $72 million. The Bobcats could offer Melo $25 mil before going into the luxury tax and getting fined. Melo currently makes $23 million.
