This will be a game where Bobcats fans look longingly at Gerald Wallace and reminisce about what things were like in the past... In a purely heterosexual way of course.
Tonight we get the shit kicked out of us (again) by 20+ points.
Anyone beg to differ?
A franchise record loss of 44 points tonight. I did not expect that kind of beatdown. Holy Toledo, we stink!
Yeah watching Crash and Felton made the current Bobcats roster feel like a bunch of imposters.
And my God they were awful.
I long for the day that Diaw is either gone or deep down the bench. He is the image of massive losing to me. The Tank.
For Blazers forward Gerald Wallace, dealt by the Bobcats at last year's trade deadline to Portland, there was no mercy, no compassion.
"I wanted to keep going," Wallace said, when asked if he felt bad for Charlotte, who fell behind by as many as 48 points. "I didn't even want to come out of the game."
Wallace finished with 23 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, three steals and one block, by far his best game against his former team. The Blazers split the two revenge match-ups with the Bobcats last season, and Wallace shot just 1-for-7 in Portland's March 3 win. Wallace came off the bench in both games.
Wednesday's thumping, he said, provided satisfaction that those games did not.
"Like I said last year, I felt like I was betrayed, I felt like I was stabbed in the back. It was my first opportunity to really play against them. You get that out of the way and you move forward... You put your past away and move forward... I'm over it now... Closure. Done. Over."
