Bobcats officially become worst team in NBA with loss in Washington

Charlotte Bobcats 75 Final
Recap | Box Score
92 Washington Wizards
Tyrus Thomas, PF 33 MIN | 5-9 FG | 3-4 FT | 9 REB | 1 AST | 13 PTS | -9Very impressive second half from Tyrus. He was active and full of energy all night, but half of that could be because he had green light the entire game due to injuries. Good effort here, would love to see more of same in near future.
Derrick Brown, F 29 MIN | 3-7 FG | 4-6 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 10 PTS | -15Attacked the rim aggressively in first half, but disappeared in the second.
Byron Mullens, C 18 MIN | 1-6 FG | 3-4 FT | 0 REB | 1 AST | 5 PTS | -15Tired of watching him. Will hopefully have some video analysis done by next week exemplifying why he shouldn’t see even close to starter minutes in this league. X-rays on hand were negative.
Matt Carroll, SG 35 MIN | 7-10 FG | 3-3 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 17 PTS | -17He rose from the dead tonight after starting the season 1-15 from the field, but the simple fact about Carroll is that he turns the basketball over and is a defensive liability.
Kemba Walker, PG 38 MIN | 4-19 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 4 AST | 8 PTS | -17I really hate that Kemba is being forced to learn and mature this way in the league. He’s not getting better by forcing fadeaway jumper after fadeaway jumper. A 6-foot rookie guard should never be forced to be the go-to guy for offense. It’s just unbelievable that an NBA roster can get this bad.
Boris Diaw, PF 21 MIN | 2-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 4 PTS | -12End of the season can’t come soon enough for more reasons than one- if you follow me.
Bismack Biyombo, C 24 MIN | 0-2 FG | 1-2 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 1 PTS | 0Forced everything on offensive end tonight, which was disappointing, but defensively he had the same ole’ impact.

Four Things We Saw

  1. The worst NBA team I’ve ever had to watch. I know this team is plagued with injuries, but even when players start getting healthy- will anyone even care to try at that point?
  2. The Bobcats allowed 60 points in the paint and were out-rebounded by 13 tonight. That’s a combination of zero effort, refusing to box out, and just flat out being a lot worse than your opponent.
  3. #1 overall pick odds seem to be all but cemented in the Bobcats favor. Rivers, Drummond, Sullinger? Let the discussion begin.
  4. Not sure how much longer Silas can or will want to endure this. It’s a rebuilding process and don’t believe he planned to be here for it all anyways. His time may be coming sooner than people think.

  • The strength of Silas has always been his ability to coach up young players. He has never been faced with coaching a team this full of young, inexperienced players before, and tack on some key injuries and this is just brutal to even try to watch. If Silas doesn’t want to keep coaching what’s left of this team I would understand, but I hope he sticks around so that he can continue to train these young players, they’ve got tremendous potential with a guy like him around. We’re the worst team in the NBA right now, but we could be the best sooner than anybody thinks if Paul Silas is given enough time with our young players to really bring out the best in them, something that he has proven over and over that he can do.

    I agree 100% with this recap (grades and all). Whoever does these write ups, keep up the good work! This is quickly becoming my favorite source for Bobcats analysis.

  • Jason Warren

    Rivers? Sullinger? Should get with your NBA draft stuff. Rivers wont even be a top 10 pick, and Sullinger will probably be around 5′ish. More along the lines , Drummond, and Davis,
