  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Luke Ridnour

    By Brett on May 22, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Luke Ridnour 9.0 22.7 (-13.7) Strengths: Luke Ridnour joined the Bobcats as part of the mid-season trade with Milwaukee, which sent Jeff Adrien and Ramon Sessions out, and returned Luke and Gary Neal. The idea was to add some long-range shooting to the Bobcats, to help spread the court around Al Jefferson’s post ups and Kemba’s drives. […]
  • Charlotte Hornets join 2014 NBA Draft Lottery

    By Brett on May 20, 2014
    While Cleveland had just a 1.7% chance of winning the lottery, the Cavaliers have received the top pick in the draft for the second year in a row. Whoop de doo. What matters is that Cleveland was behind Detroit in the lottery standings, and their move up the board pushed Detroit down. The Cavaliers’ good fortune provides benefit to the […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Gerald Henderson

    By Brett on May 14, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Gerald Henderson 13.4 13.1 (+0.3) Strengths: After 5 seasons in the league, Gerald is who he is. A decent midrange shooter who plays solid defense on the ball, and can provide a spectacular highlight on either end of the court, using his length and leaping ability to soar for a dunk or block at the rim.

  • Bobcats and Basketball Links

    By Brett on March 30, 2014
    I came across a few links this past week that I wanted to make sure people were aware of. That suffices for an intro. Video discussion between Henry Abbott and David Thorpe about 3s – For reference, the Bobcats remain one of the worst in the league at defending the 3. Last season, Charlotte surrendered 38.8% shooting on threes, tying […]

  • Bobcats as escapism is failing

    By Brett on December 19, 2013
    Through the confluence of circumstance, the same week I finish reading a book about escaping – from war, poverty, societal constraints – I was also presented with data about the Bobcats’ influence on ticket prices, when arriving in cities as the visiting team. In The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, comic books represent a literal avenue of escape from […]

    By Brett on November 24, 2013
    First time trying something like this – a stream of consciousness post, where a thought has come to me and I try to follow it for a little while. I do not know how far it will go, or how often it may occur. Feedback or inspiration welcome. Thanks for humoring me. -Brett “I start with the platitude that one […]
