(rumors) Charlotte Bobcats - Clevland Cavs

Recommended Posts

The Bobcats brought in Dunlap to develop younger players, so why would they be concerned with a lot of rookies? Just because it's unconventional?

I'm going to be pissed if Washington ends up picking Barnes. Then I'm going to select Washington as one of the whose games I always get to see instead of the Bobcats.

Barnes is coming up on ESPN Draft Special if you are near a TV.

Answering questions from Skip Bayless, Chad Ford, and Stephen A. Smith.

Wait what?

How so?

Next year is a top 12 protected pick if we finish outside of the top 12. Chicago gets out 1st round pick.

Forgot about that

But at least we still have the chance to get a pick from Portland.

Barnes Interview

  • Barnes said he would enjoy staying home and playing for the Bobcats, also said he would like to play with Kyrie.
  • Stephen A asked if he would like to play for the "woeful" Bobcats, Barnes replied I would love to be the 2nd pick in the draft.
  • Said that he can create his own shot, and wants to play with an up-tempo team.
  • Asked if he was just a product of Roy William's system- he danced around the question saying that he scored 17 points per game, he can create his own shot just fine. (Skip doesn't seem to think he was a product of Roy William's System)
  • Also said he continuously works on his ball handling skills as basketball is his life.
  • Said his best asset is his 3 point shot and pull up jumper.
  • Said he was a huge Jordan fan to say the least.
  • Wanted to go up against the best during workouts, wanted to go against MKG (didn't get the chance to); however he did get to go up against Beal.
  • He's been working on putting the ball on the floor and his post game.
  • Said his motor is fine and doesn't understand the criticism for it.
  • Stephen A thinks Barnes can be a 17 to 20 points per game player and a two or three time NBA All Star but doesn't think he will be a superstar.
  • Skip Bayless thinks he will be a Luol Deng or Danny Green type of player.

Finally a good segment on ESPN.

Skip Bayless: Tyler Zeller

Zeller being the biggest bust? That's just dumb. He is what he is, no gamble at all. A 7fter who can run the court and has a good 13ft jumper.

That's all that free agency is this year, just second tier guys.

However, there are still some solid players out there like Carl Landry, Ryan Anderson, Nick Batum, Jeff Green, Michael Beasley, J.R. Smith, Courtney Lee, Nick Young, O.J. Mayo, Ramon Sessions, Nate Robinson, Aaron Brooks, Raymond Felton, and Lou Williams.

Then out of our league: Deron Williams, Eric Gordon, and Roy Hibbert

i would look to beasley, young, mayo and lou williams. they would be the 4 choices for me. but all will still look for too much money.

young wants 9mill got offered 7 by wizz and declined (why they traded him) but i think he can be a 20ppg scorer in this league

williams is also a guy i really like, can really score. but he is very comparable to kemba in abilities and i would like a backup PG that can pass and set others up better. hear he wants at least 7 mill and thats too much for my taste.

idk what it would take for mayo or beasley, but either would come in and give us a solid scoring threat. i wouldnt pay over 7 mill for either of them. But for around 7 i would be interested depending on what/who we draft.

i also like jamison, he wants to play here and would be a good fit. hope we do sign him.

I would not mind paying around 8-9 mil for Mayo. He's def a guy who could be huge for a team like us. He has tremendous talents and abilities. He was pretty much overshadowed by the few other stars they had there in Memphis.

Also he would fill a position for us. If we could attract a guy like Mayo to come play here for that amount and draft a T-rob with the addition of Ben Gordon, all of a sudden we starting to look pretty good for the future.

All I know is, if we trade with Cleveland we better be certain were going to get Barnes. I don't wanna be stuck with Robinson or MKG, and seeing that we just traded Corey, it's likely we'd end up with MKG. I'm not cool with that lol

    • you can if you are absolutely a stupid fuging retarded moron who can just remember the last 12 hours of whatever Fox News told you. His major problem was his support for the Iraq War, but I don't think that's whats got you whining about his kid.   Biden was a longtime member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. In 1997, he became the ranking minority member and chaired the committee in January 2001 and from June 2001 to 2003. When Democrats retook control of the Senate after the 2006 elections, Biden again assumed the top spot on the committee.[126] He was generally a liberal internationalist in foreign policy.[75][127] He collaborated effectively with important Republican senators such as Richard Lugar and Jesse Helms and sometimes went against elements of his own party.[126][127] Biden was also co-chairman of the NATO Observer Group in the Senate.[128] A partial list covering this time showed Biden meeting with 150 leaders from nearly 60 countries and international organizations.[129] He held frequent hearings as chairman of the committee, as well as many subcommittee hearings during the three times he chaired the Subcommittee on European Affairs.[75]   Biden gives an opening statement and takes questions at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Iraq, 2007 Biden voted against authorization for the Gulf War in 1991,[127] siding with 45 of the 55 Democratic senators; he said the U.S. was bearing almost all the burden in the anti-Iraq coalition.[130] Biden became interested in the Yugoslav Wars after hearing about Serbian abuses during the Croatian War of Independence in 1991.[75] Once the Bosnian War broke out, Biden was among the first to call for the "lift and strike" policy of lifting the arms embargo, training Bosnian Muslims and supporting them with NATO air strikes, and investigating war crimes.[75][126] The George H. W. Bush administration and Clinton administration were both reluctant to implement the policy, fearing Balkan entanglement.[75][127] In April 1993, Biden spent a week in the Balkans and held a tense three-hour meeting with Serbian leader Slobodan Milošević.[131] Biden related that he had told Milošević, "I think you're a damn war criminal and you should be tried as one."[131] Biden wrote an amendment in 1992 to compel the Bush administration to arm the Bosnians, but deferred in 1994 to a somewhat softer stance the Clinton administration preferred, before signing on the following year to a stronger measure sponsored by Bob Dole and Joe Lieberman.[131] The engagement led to a successful NATO peacekeeping effort.[75] Biden has called his role in affecting Balkans policy in the mid-1990s his "proudest moment in public life" related to foreign policy.[127] In 1998, Congressional Quarterly named Biden one of "Twelve Who Made a Difference" for playing a lead role in several foreign policy matters, including NATO enlargement and the successful passage of bills to streamline foreign affairs agencies and punish religious persecution overseas.[132] In 1999, during the Kosovo War, Biden supported the 1999 NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia,[75] and co-sponsored with John McCain the McCain-Biden Kosovo Resolution, which called on President Clinton to use all necessary force, including ground troops, to confront Milošević over Yugoslav actions in Kosovo.[127][133] In 2016, Biden paid a state visit to Serbia where he met with Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić and expressed his condolences for the civilian victims of the bombing campaign.[134] Biden was a strong supporter of the 2001 war in Afghanistan, saying, "Whatever it takes, we should do it."[135] As head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden said in 2002 that Saddam Hussein was a threat to national security and there was no option but to "eliminate" that threat.[136] In October 2002, he voted in favor of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq, approving the U.S. invasion of Iraq.[127] More significantly, as chair of the committee, he assembled a series of witnesses to testify in favor of the authorization. They gave testimony grossly misrepresenting the intent, history of and status of Saddam and his Sunni government, which was an openly avowed enemy of al-Qaida, and touting Iraq's fictional possession of weapons of mass destruction.[137]   Biden addressing the press after having a meeting with Prime Minister Ayad Allawi in Baghdad, Iraq in 2004 While he eventually became a critic of the war and viewed his vote and role as a "mistake", he did not push for U.S. withdrawal.[127][131] He supported the appropriations to pay for the occupation, but argued repeatedly that the war should be internationalized, that more soldiers were needed, and that the Bush administration should "level with the American people" about the cost and length of the conflict.[126][133] By late 2006, Biden's stance had shifted considerably, and he opposed the troop surge of 2007,[127][131] saying General David Petraeus was "dead, flat wrong" in believing the surge could work.[138] Biden instead advocated dividing Iraq into a loose federation of three ethnic states.[139] In November 2006, Biden and Leslie H. Gelb, President Emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, released a comprehensive strategy to end sectarian violence in Iraq.[140] Rather than continuing the present approach or withdrawing, the plan called for "a third way": federalizing Iraq and giving Kurds, Shiites, and Sunnis "breathing room" in their own regions.[9]:572–573 In September 2007, a non-binding resolution endorsing such a scheme passed the Senate,[140] but the idea was unfamiliar, had no political constituency, and failed to gain traction.[138] Iraq's political leadership denounced the resolution as de facto partitioning of the country, and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad issued a statement distancing itself from it.[140] In March 2004, Biden secured the brief release of Libyan democracy activist and political prisoner Fathi Eljahmi, after meeting with leader Muammar Gaddafi in Tripoli.[141][142] In May 2008, Biden sharply criticized President George W. Bush for his speech to Israel's Knesset, where he suggested some Democrats were acting the way some Western leaders did when they appeased Hitler in the run-up to World War II. Biden said, "This is bullshit. This is malarkey. This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset ... and make this kind of ridiculous statement ... Since when does this administration think that if you sit down, you have to eliminate the word 'no' from your vocabulary?" He later apologized for using the expletive.[143]
