#2313274 8th best offseason in the league per David Aldridge

Posted by bLACKpANTHER on 06 August 2013 - 01:49 PM

No. 8 -- CHARLOTTE BOBCATS

RECORD: 21-61, fourth place, Southeast Division; did not make playoffs

 

ADDED: Coach Steve Clifford; F/C Al Jefferson (three years, $40.5 million); F/C Cody Zeller (first-round pick, 4th overall)

 

LOST: C Byron Mullens (signed with Clippers); F Tyrus Thomas (waived via amnesty provision); G Reggie Williams (signed with Houston)

 

RETAINED: G Ben Gordon (picked up player option); G Gerald Henderson (three years, $16 million); F Josh McRoberts (picked up player option)

 

THE KEY MAN: Swingman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The Bobcats insisted trade rumors involving their rising second-year forward were bogus, but even so, MKG must develop some kind of consistent offense. Mark Price, new to Charlotte's bench as an assistant and de facto shooting coach, said that Kidd-Gilchrist's form was so off last season that he would take baseline jumpers with his feet pointing out of bounds. Charlotte signed Jefferson to give MKG more room to drive, the thing he does quite well offensively. But he'll have to fix the jumper to have any chance to be anything more than a situational player.

 

THE SKINNY: Charlotte had to show some level of seriousness in improving the roster, so it gave Jefferson a boatload of cash, and gambled that Zeller's all-around game will translate to the pros. For what it's worth, Zeller looked terrific in the Las Vegas Summer League. There is still a long, long way to go to get the locals excited about the on-court product, but the team should at least be representative on offense running things through Jefferson. And the Bobcats, in their last season with that nickname before they become the Hornets again, have more than $20 million in tradeable contracts to move for more pieces (the expiring deals of Ben Gordon and Ramon Sessions, plus the very reasonable $2 million of backup center Brendan Haywood, whose minutes will certainly trickle to drips with Jefferson in town).

 

 

pretty much sums it up well..

He asked someone to create so he can fill us in on everything. He broke his back and needs our thoughts and prayers. He's going under the knife soon.

FOX - makes me think of the wide angle spanning the field before our games..

 

NBC - this one always gets me hype..

 

CBS - makes me think of JB and the pregame show

 

ESPN - MNF - classic that just oozes football

#2303374 Down the stretch...

Posted by bLACKpANTHER on 29 July 2013 - 11:34 AM

everyone keeps talking about how we finished strong "down the stretch" last season..

considering who we played, we better have won most of those games against the opponents we played:

 

DEN - smoked us.. one of only 2 games that we lost by more than 6pts (MNF vs NYG)

TB - lost in overtime in ridiculous fashion

PHI - beat a pitiful team with a ton of injuries- only won by 8pts BTW

KC - lost to the worst team in the league

ATL - a quality win in the books - check

SD - a Jeckle and Hyde team- very similar to us last year.. you can call this a quality win if you want

OAK - another team reeling at that point in the year

NO - a shoot out of a game that we eventually won.. i guess you can say a quality win too

 

so at the end of the day- our Awesome "down the stretch" run consisted of 2.5 Quality wins and a loss to the worst team in the league..




#2303217 Our passing down D-Line

Posted by bLACKpANTHER on 29 July 2013 - 09:06 AM

Yes very dynamic and on paper even better than 2003 Panthers' D line. The main sub back then for passing downs was just to bring in Al Wallace, right?

 

I was going to agree with you but then i watched this..

 

our current roster might be good on paper, but until they put it the results- they are just another good D-line

we haven't even seen our 2 rookie DTs play yet and we a crowning them better than 2003 D-line???

 

we go to the NFCCG and beyond- then we can have a discussion about them being better..
