  • Queen City Hoops Player Previews: Kemba Walker

    By Mathew Lewis on October 3, 2013
    Kemba Walker has a lot of improving to do. He’s not an effective three-point shooter. Defensively, we saw him struggle to compete with the League’s elite point guards. His passing abilities still leave plenty to be desired. But yet, he is already the Bobcats best player and really their only valuable asset moving forward (pending the development of MKG and […]
  • Season Report Card: Ben Gordon

    By Mathew Lewis on May 17, 2013
      PER PER Against (Net) Ben Gordon 12.74 17.54 (-4.8) Strengths: He can shoot. That’s about it. But that’s obviously still a valuable NBA skill, so a tip of the cap to The Scottish Terrier (my nickname for him for many years – you know he looks like one). Gordon led the team in 3P% at .387 (career .404), many […]
  • Season Report Card: Jeff Taylor

    By Mathew Lewis on May 10, 2013
        PER PER Against (Net) Jeff Taylor 10.33 17.23 (-6.9) Strengths: Taylor showed the ability to hit the NBA three at a decent clip (.344 on 154 attempts) and at times demonstrated the skills that at some point in the (hopefully near) future may enable him to be a plus perimeter defender in the League. He isn’t there yet […]

  • Anatomy of a good shot – the shot clock

    By Mathew Lewis on February 14, 2013
    During Sunday’s telecast of the Lakers/Heat game, Jeff Van Gundy made a statement that at first seemed simple and commonsensical, yet upon further thought was very interesting. He said, “Shooting percentage is as much a function of decision making as it is of technique.” As basketball fans, I think we intuitively understand what Van Gundy is pointing out. There are […]
  • Take two – Bobcats squander large lead vs. Lakers

    By Mathew Lewis on February 8, 2013
    Los Angeles Lakers 100 Final Recap | Box Score 93 Charlotte Bobcats Bismack Biyombo, PF 33 MIN | 4-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 10 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 8 PTS | +5 Not a bad job defensively on Dwight Howard, as the Bobcats allowed Biyombo to try his hand […]
  • Midway Point – 10 Observations

    By Mathew Lewis on January 24, 2013
    The Bobcats eclipsed the midway point of the season last night, losing to the Atlanta Hawks for the fourth occasion in as many contests. Through 42 games, the team stands at 10-32. Depending on your expectations, this season has been somewhat of a pleasant surprise, pretty much as expected, or a frustrating disappointment. Given their win total to date is not […]
