Frank Hughes at SI.com says Gerald Wallace finally gets due recognition:
You could make the argument that there has not been an All-Star like Charlotte's Gerald Wallace in the last 20 years. And not because he is the first Bobcats player in franchise history to make the team.
Think about it: In the past two decades, how many players have created a balanced resume — one solid enough to garner an All-Star nod — out of scrappiness and hustle? By my count: zero.
Mark Travis at ButTheGameIsOn.com talks about how Stephen Jackson has helped the Bobcats win – Stephen Jackson has helped shape the Bobcats as a contender:
After struggling to fit in during his first few games, Jackson has come on in the past two months of play, scoring 22 points a game on 43% shooting with five boards and three assists a contest. Jackson is still susceptible to having off nights shooting the ball, but he has become a nice fit within the offense, getting to the basket to finish at the rim when his shot isn't falling.
