You know guys that I can be rather pessimistic but I found hope in both our losses to the Magic. We came out flat and did not play up to our game plan yet when our guys settled down and played within themselves they showed they were not as bad as the early routes they were looking at.
I think these games would be competitive if our guys just settled down and played a complete game. I know our Bobcats are a seventh seed but they are a much better match up to Orlando than what we have witnessed. When we talk about our Bobcats lack of talent to the Magic I think we sell them short and that is just not right. We have seen the best of our Bobcats and they do have talent. Maybe not statistical talent but we have smart guys who are not slouches.
We have all seen the best of our Cats and when they do show up and focus they can compete with any team. Remember that some of the players we have came late in the season and that there is still a bit of feeling one another out. Not making excuses but telling it like it is.
When our Bobcats come home they will be ready to perform for the home crowd. They will feel more comfortable and the butterflies will be much less. Our Bobcats have one of the best home records in the NBA and one of the worst road records. Why should that not hold true to form? Our guys have shown to be class acts and in no way are they going down without a fight. The heart of the Bobcats can not be denied. They showed that by getting pummeled by Orlando and yet having the resolve to fight back. I expect being at home is just the tonic our Bobcats need.
Can I say without a doubt that our Bobcats won't get swept? No, and none of us can. That said I will go out on a limb and say that they will not go down without making it interesting. Expect our guys to be much more competitive because I will.
We know the kind of guys we have on our Bobcats and all of them have been solid human beings and a team we all can be proud of. No matter what happens, I am glad to be a Bobcats fan. Our guys gave us a great year and no Troll is going to come on our board and ruin our good karma.
To our Bobcats should they come to our forum.
Thanks guys for all you have done and for all the great entertainment you brought us. Thanks for our first playoff birth.
To all on BCP thanks for sharing with me this great ride. The season is not over but thanks are in order none the less.
To the Trolls. You can not harsh our mellow. We are proud of our guys and make no apologies for believing they could win. It is called being a fan.
