[B]Charlotte Starting Lineup

Gibson is returning tonight, but I don't think he'll be a factor. At times, we've defended LeBron really well. If we can do it again tonight, we're definitely close to the victory. Go Bobcats..

If you happen to go to the game tonight, don't forget to get a "Vincent Sucks" chant going.
Edit: Go Bobcats!

Anybody else not seeing this on news14??? It's listed everywhere as being on news14, but all they're showing is the news (of course)...

Anyone watching the game?
Went man all the 1st I think and built a 9 pt lead. We go zone in the 2nd and they close...Felton comes in and for 2 plays we play man and we stop them...go back to zone and they reduce the lead again.
I need to email the Bobcats and tell them my german shepherd is available to coach...he'd do much better.
04-02-2008, 09:11 PM
Why waste your German Shephard's time? I'm sure you've got a year old box of fish sticks in the freezer that could also coach better.
Can of spam?
Old tennis ball (with or without dog spit)?

Up til now tho the offense has run pretty good. Lot's of movement, driving, finding the open man. Swish has made a couple of sick passes, one behind the back to Crash for the dunk. Mek's having a so-so night, hit one good 10 ftr and a couple of dunks. Blocked a couple times. Felts didn't really look for his shot...took one 18 ftr, blocked on a drive and a half court chunker.
Duds is once again looking like a vet out there instead of an oft played rookie.
Can someone please remind me of a time in which the Charlotte Bobcats played solid D? For a long stretch?
We actually shoot a good % tonight and totally negate it by playing no D at all. We watch them drive to the rack, don't even put our hands up, and hope and pray that the uncontested shot doesn't go in.
At least LeBron has 3 fouls.
How many thousands of times in Emeka's professional career has he mishandle drop passes to him in the post? If he cut those in half he'd be a freaking monster.
At least he's playing well tonight minus the 3 or 4 complete flubs.
Talking to yourself in threads is fun. . .
For those that didn't watch it . . . Z and Varajeo looked like 2 Tim Duncans tonight, Emeka dropped lots of passes that would've tied it up and Raymond complete screwed us by turning the ball over when we had the chance to win it.
JRich almost won the game by himself.

Great games from J-Rich, Crash and Okafor. Ray, you were OK, but you blew it at the end. When james fouled out, we were within one score. You made 3 very ill advised drives and stunk it up. Why not look for J-Rich or Crash? They would have been better options. You dont have to do it on your own.
04-02-2008, 11:29 PM
Ive said it time in and time out, Ray is much better, and looking pretty good, but he trys to do way too much.
He claims he wants to be the leader, and I think by forcing that he is forcing himself to do more then his abilities and hurts the team in crunch-time.
Jrich needs the ball every possession under 2 minutes... he is our go to guy, I cannot figure out why it took us this long to figure it out and why we dont use him before there are only 30 seconds left.

With a coach thease guys would have looked damn good tonight.
Should have been a Charlotte win THANKS BISCUIT##############

you have to remember, Cleveland doesnt have a coach either. I thought it was hilarious that Lebron when he got his 3,4,5 fouls he'd either just charge to the bench and take a seat or go stand in front of whoever he wanted to replace him. Sam is just terrible. he is no better than a fan. We might as well bring in Whoopi Goldberg out of the top of the old arena.
His comments postgame were the best part of it:
"So Sam what was the difference tonight, you know other than 4 points"
"Well, ugh, we both shot 50% from the field. Got a good night out of Jason, Gerald and a great night out of Emeka. They just got more 2nd chance points. They got so many offensive rebounds. It seemed like Big-Z was always tipping one in, he has such long arms."
Stan Smith on the radio broadcast cuts in after Sam is done babbling and says, "Actually, the Bobcats finished with one more second half point than the Cavs."
I know I can sit there and watch a game and go, oh well, they are killing us on the boards, or they are getting 3's to our 2's or whatever. To get stuff like that wrong as an NBA head coach....not so good.

I watched the last 4 minutes of the first half and the last 9 of the 4th qtr, and besides some stupid matchups I saw (Mek on Wally Szcerbiak, then Nazr on Wally), I can't whine about "coach" too much. That said, I only watched 13 minutes of game action, so you guys that watched its entirety can comment better than I on this.
I was just thoroughly disappointed with the lack of D all the way around. I saw JRich block that was nice, but other than that, it was the Cavs unforced errors and missed open shots and missed FTs that made it as close as it was. I'm sure that tuning out "coach" had something to do with the defensive lethargy I saw, but the guys just looked like they wanted to try to outscore them, instead of trying to stop them from scoring.
Yeah, Raymond effed-up at the end with the missed FT to convert the would-be 3pt play, and then running into traffic to force the jump ball which was lost. All the way around, aside from JRich for us, and Ilgauskus for them, it was some pretty uninspired ball, and suddenly we're back on another losing streak. Eh...at least my Astros came back and scored 4 in the 9th to get their first win of the year (and scored 9 runs to boot after scoring only 1 run in the first two games combined), so it was not a wasted night at all!!!

Just playing it out right now. Next year...new coaching staff, new system; a couple new rookies....Ammo and May.
The reason why Felts needed to play PG all year instead of just at the end was to strive to work through these tendencies to be greedy and to adapt to an NBA team. Nobody ever said he'd get there for sure; but many of us figured he was good enough and smart enough that with experience and coaching he'd work out fine.
So what we're seeing now are growing pains we should have been working out in November and December. Unfortunately Ray was mostly playing SG then; which most of us knew he wasn't very good at. Fortunately after "just" a few months (through the heart of the season); management realized it too. Not sure Sam gets it yet though.

how i wished that we could've won that game. *sighs*
