Silly Keetch, don't you know that since Felton is a "Tar Hole" that he is automatically entered into "suck list" that is irreversible and everlasting? Also, please refer to May being fat every time you mention that you don't like Raymond. It is a super-burn and no one will catch the drift of why you don't like those two players.Originally Posted by Keetch
In all seriousness, after these past 4 games I have to say I'm happy with our guys. I'd love to have Fabio back and playing him, but minus that I have to say that we've truly been blessed by getting rid of Jeff and Primoz!
Holy crap. I mean think of how big that is. They could possibly be the two worst players on any NBA roster, it was our roster, and now they are off it. Hallelujah.
TEAM BALL!Originally Posted by dav7z
I love it. The hits just keep on coming. I also agree with Tamb that the best part is that JRich only scored a handful, but the points still came from elsewhere! Now it's time to see if we can really continue this on the road.
Well, when Ryan "The Nut" Hollins slung a t shirt up to me at my 107 perch (you could tell be the maniacal smile on his face it was one of those 'Bet you don't think I can get it to you' things), I was first of all, thankful he didn't throw his arm out of socket, and secondly knew this was going to be a good night!
This game was definitely up there with the last Hawks game, and the Orlando comeback in January, but it was even more special considering what's taking place with the team: they are flippin' fun to watch. First quarter aside, it was a thing of beauty. Confidence is actually tangible out there!
Let me just say, our core is there and they are good!! We have a PG of the future and his name is Raymond; screw drafting a PG with our 1st rounder. If we could somehow land Kevin Love in the draft (assuming he comes out) watch out!! Matt Carroll is finally given the PT to show all doubters that the contract was slightly overpaid, but well worth it!! JD is top 5 rookie, experts be damned!
Best moment of quite a bunch of best moments: The last play of the 3rd quarter, where Matt comes off a Othella screen, JD finds him on the curl, and Matty buries the thing right down the middle!! Matt's pumping his fists and jumps into Othella's meathook arms. That was a great scene, and it's good to see old man Harrington playing hard and helping in his own way during this streak. What was even cooler was when I watched the postgame video on bobcats.com, Matt revealed that it was a set play, not from "coach" but between Othella, Matt and JD. Very cool story, and Othella has risen quite highly in my estimation as of late!! Yes, I said it. It's the world turned upside down, and I'm loving it!!!!!
I'm so hoping for the historical #5 tomorrow night, but 'til then, I'll bathe in the afterglow of this W.
Oh, and yes, the refs were phenomenally bad again, even up to the end when the called a "clear path" foul against JD when he was obviously just going for the ball against the Hawk. A foul? Maybe. But no way was it a clear path; the Hawk was not even past JD, and JD was not stopping the guy from getting a breakaway layup or dunk!! Also, the JD foul that Keetch was complaining about, and rightfully so, was not even conducted the correct way. A foul off the ball before it has been inbounded should result in one free throw and the ball out of bounds, unless I'm terribly mistaken, and I don't think I am because I've seen that call about 5 times this season in other games, so I'm guessing those 5 times were right, and this singular instance was another brainfart by the stellar crew "working" tonight
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
I just watched the postgame video. The best part was easily when Matt was quoting Othella telling him that he's gonna get the shot. Confidence from Othella is a sure sign that the others must be feeling it too. This also tells us that the Big OH is putting some effort into his screens. From the way Matt was talking, it seemed like Othella had a "Ain't nobody coming through me" attitude, which is both funny and great to hear about Oldfella. If he's gonna take that attitude towards everything, then he can be a help to this team for the rest of the season when used in small quantities.Originally Posted by TheBeagle
Team ball! Wohoo, no more lollygagging!
I think it's awesome that the Cats have won four in a row, thanks for the pep talk Tom Sorensen!
