My "release his ass" comment was just a rant. I don't know the cap ramifications. I don't know what it accomplishes. I just hate him for being fat and lazy and wasting potential. I have never liked his attitude, he's happy to be in his super cool faded jeans and untucked button up with his sportscoat, at the end of the bench, being the best cheerleader he can be. Eating Bojangles and Krispie Kream because lets face it, that stuff is good. I eat it, I'm fat, out of shape, couldn't run the court 4 straight times let alone jump and try for a rebound, but damn I'm not a pro-basketball player.
There is no trade to be made. Unless it involves Raymond, which I don't think Larry is ready to give up on him, he's in a contract year, no team wants that. The NBA has gotten so funny about transactions and things that make sense don't seem to work out, especially for the Bobcats.
So we have basically 4 guys that are untouchable in the trade market: Okafor, J-Rich, Carroll and Nazr. Those guys have "bad" contracts. I don't think bad for the Bobcats but sort of untradeable. Agreed? We have a handful of unknowns/guys no one really would want to trade for: Hollins, Davidson, Ajinca, Shannon Brown, May and Morrison. May and Morrison are big time injury/mental case question marks. Hollins, Davidson and Brown are athletic talents (loosely phrased) that seem destined for D-League. Ajinca, young, thin, French, done nothing so far. Larry seems to be the only person other than his mom who really likes this kid. Can we agree on these? Dudley, I love, I think he's getting some burn but it'd be a special situation for him to fit in a trade. DJ, Felton, I really don't think anyone on the team wants to get rid of either one without knowing who is better and as stated Felton is in a funny situation. Anyone who would really want him could just wait and offer him more than they think the bobcats would want to pay him in the off season. That leaves Gerald, who I think is awesome, best player on the team. I would have to get Boozer or someone better back for Wallace. It just won't happen for us. There is no one out there to fill our big giant hole, made wider by an ever widening Sean May.
