11) If you could have one moment being part of the Bobcats organization, what would it be? Let me be GM it would be rumors and moves all off season . Expections and talk fill the seats. Thats where the organization has made many mistakes. They don't try to get the public talking. Even thair web page sucks and we find more news than the offical site does. [example] D Browns summer league stats. That could have been posted.

1 If you could live anywhere where would it be? This is nice hear close to the beach and the mountains, It don't get to hot or to cold. The green trees and land most people don't even notice. Carolina is a great place.
19) Name your favorite 3 Bobcats all time and explain the reason for one or more of them.
1st Felton Hes the toughest player we have. I love the way he sucks it up and plays through pain.
2nd Wallace Fearless leaves it all on the court. Win or lose he still leaves it all on the court.
3rd Diaw Great addition effortless talent, He has no idea how good he could really be. Im looking for Brown to bring some of that out this season.
20) Up to this date, what is one of your favorite Bobcats Planet memories? Some of the May threads. I loved the one we compared him to RERUN. To this day i still think they look alike.
21) Anything else you'd like to add? Thanks to all you guys for your support over the years . With the things you over look like my spelling and gramer. No other site would be understanding. This is the Bobcats number#1 site thanks to all you guys . And a special thanks to Ziggy for such a great creation.
Who would you like to nominate to be interviewed next? I would love to hear from ZIGGY. His insight should be special
And I've been mistakenly calling you Dave... I apologize Doug

Doug, (still call you dav on the regular boards though) glad you were the subject of the interview... well deserved. Since we hung out at the Pistons game together last year (the almost miracle comback), I've known how cool of a guy you are.
Have to look you up in your new seats next season.....even though we won't be neighbors anymore, glad you got the upgrade at no extra cost!
As always hope your health stays good enough, and if you need something, let me know!
Also, I agree, ziggy should be next!!!!
