  • Moving On

    By James on September 23, 2010
    There's no easy way to say it but this is my last official entry on Queen City Hoops as I've accepted a position with the Bobcats Radio Network as a Halftime and Post-game host. I appreciate Brett giving me the opportunity to fill up a few pages with my musings on this team and the NBA no matter how elementary […]
  • Why it makes sense for Larry Brown to make up his mind, like now

    By James on June 11, 2010
    It’s been over a month since the Bobcats last game and about the same amount of time since Larry Brown has spoken to the media and said “I don’t want this to drag on” since then Philadelphia, New Orleans and likely now Chicago and New Jersey have hired head coaches meanwhile Brown’s future with Charlotte seems uncertain. To his credit […]

  • Charlotte Bobcats and Orlando Magic: I say…

    By James on April 16, 2010
    This is quite a mountain that the Charlotte Bobcats have to climb here. Orlando is probably the second worst matchup for them behind Boston and it's easy to see why, the Magic do just about everything that Charlotte does equally or better. I won't steal the thunder from our breakdown by the numbers but Orlando is Charlotte's true equal on […]

  • How can the Bobcats get better?

    By James on April 8, 2010
    Henry Abbot of ESPN's Truhoop just posted one of the most interesting and thought-provoking pieces on basketball that I've read this season: Young NBA players need minutes. It's a long read but well worth it and as a matter of fact just stop reading now and click the link and come back here later. Finished, good. The thing that jumps […]
