Now we have a very solid grouping at TE, at least on paper.

Who are the most important current Panthers players?

I'm talking about the 10 guys you think are the most integral to our core, and who need to be kept at all cost. So that means you don't really have to include the Kraken, since unfortunately he's probably about to call Oakland home, but you can anyway if you so desire.

Rivera wins PFWA Coach of the Year award

16 January 2014 - 01:18 PM

Per Twitter. Given to Pro Football Writers of America's pick for top coach.


Cheers, Ron. Well-deserved award.


NOTE: This is not the "official" NFL Coach of the Year award. That is given by the Associated Press at NFL Honors. Still, this is pretty badass.

Charlotte Hornets' colors will be teal & purple, it's official

Very happy to see this! Hornets' colors will be teal and purple, with black, light grey and light blue as accents.

I was at the game last night. Here are my thoughts

First of all, I've been to at least one Bobcats game every season they've played except '06, '07, '08 and '11. I've always seen them win the first game I attend every year but never win again after that. Examples: Saw them come back from 17 down to beat the Thunder on St. Patrick's Day 2010, but they lost in the home playoff game vs. Orlando when I was there.




Kemba looked pretty good. He still looked for his shot a bit more than I'd say is ideal, even though he's my favorite player by far. But he's improved his court vision and is becoming a solid distributor. He only had 5 assists, but what was very encouraging was his ability to facilitate successful possessions even if they didn't end with him scoring or getting the dime.


Zeller got off to a hot start. Then, I said "I like his game," and he fell off for two quarters before looking good again. He's got the ability to be a successful scorer in this league. He needs to get bigger and he needs to make free throws (so do all his teammates), but the potential is there.


I am not a fan of Biyombo, but he made some nice plays and got a couple clutch rebounds.


Henderson had his best game of the preseason. Hit a big three late in the 4th. 


Sessions hates to pass the basketball. He can get to the line, though.


Jeff Taylor was the best player on the court for much of the game, and that includes when Kemba and Kyrie were on the floor. He's a pure shooter, but he's also a really good playmaker. Right now he's better than MKG, who looked fine before tweaking his hamstring.


There were not a lot of fans there. But those who were, seemed to have a good time. The best one was the dude in a Larry Johnson Hornets t-shirt near me in section 114 who, as Sessions was shooting a free throw, said "Remember to have fun! Let's see those smiles! And WIN!"


And, they did. Feels good. Panthers are 4-3 in NFL regular season and Bobcats are 4-3 in NBA preseason.
