Teej...I tell you what did it for me (and I've accepted the fact it had to been done) was reading all day...waiting for it...but going to the Blazers board and having them talk about Crash...calling him Crash...bunch of of a** holes...they don't know Crash...and they'll never appreciate him the way we did...makes me ill...
I needed to get that off my chest...wish I felt better...

FILIPINO BOBCATS FAN. FROM A BASKETBALL CRAZY NATION.
Ok so i have been out for the day, just read the last 20 pages of this board. I am now going to put every feeling i have about this trade down for the record, the pros, and the cons.
Talent we have recieved in both the GW and Nazr trade is poor. However apart from Pryzybilla all the talent is young and has some amount of potential.
Gerald Wallace said the other day after the Raptors game that his ankle was still hurting. It is obvious that he has sprained it so many times that it takes longer to recover every time. This isnt even taking into acount of his concussions and collapsed lungs.
Pryzbilla will contribute for now, if he decideds to play. We have gone from weak, to patheticaly scrawny weak at the centre position.
Dante Cunningham is not a bad young piece, he is not going to blow anyone away bu he has showed signs of improvement. Just before the all star break he had a career night 18 points 13 rebounds, that is promising. He can also do a bit of time at the 5 if needed.
For now this deal makes us alot worse, However i am looking forward to what Hendo can do with starters minutes and i think Jack will play better at the 3 like he did earlier in the season. Remember aswell Tyrus is back in 2 weeks or so.
The Two draft picks are what this deal relies on, if we do something with these picks either with trades or the actually draft, that is what this deal will be judged on. So we will have to wait and see.
The Mohammed trade has given us an equal-ish expiring, while giving us another young forward in DJ White, i think he has less potential that cunningham, however can still contribute. Even though this deal may not help right now, in the future it could be good.
The overall answer is YES MJ has basically said he doesnt mind not making the play offs this year, but he wants to contend, no just for a play off spot but for a championship and i think it was obvious to you and me that this team wasnt going to do it. So he has gambled, stay a team that battles for 7-8th seed and gets beat in the 1st or 2nd round. Or try to rebuild into a contender. Either way, we are going to have to WAIT to see if this trade was good or bad for this team
PS: Im going to mis you G G G G GERALD WALLLLLLLLLACCCCCCEEEEE the last original bobcat will be missed by all!!!
The difference between Jimmer and Adam Morrsion is that Adam Morrison is a weak minded little girl. Jimmer has Adam Morrison type talent and he can handle the emotional pressures and the daily grind of the NBA. That said, I doubt the Bobcats take a chance at what many will perceive as another Adam Morrison. I will predict that whoever get the "next white guy" college phenom known as Jimmer will experience way better results than what our Bobcats got with Adam Morrison.
I miss Gerald......a few days and i'm really really missing him. I hope he does come back someday in the future.
