  • Projecting 2012-13 for the Bobcats

    By Brett on October 3, 2012
    Good news – the 2012-13 season will be better for the Bobcats. It almost has to be. The Bobcats added talent (Ramon Sessions, Ben Gordon, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist) and one of their centerpieces is a year older (Bismack Biyombo). How much better? Well, don’t budget for playoff tickets. But they won’t threaten their record for worst winning percentage. Strengths: The Bobcats […]
  • Bobcats unveil advertising campaign for 12-13

    By Brett on September 26, 2012
    For the upcoming season, the Bobcats are going with the advertising slogan: “TougherFasterStronger” However, it appears that they may have been a bit hasty in posting to twitter: Cats PR might not want to be so fast based on this tweet “@bobcats: …Bobcats Media Day! #ToucherFasterStronger” #TougherFasterStronger — Alan Henrikson (@AlanHenrikson) September 24, 2012 #Toucher RT @bobcats: One more week […]
  • BOOM: So unlike Mike

    By Brett on September 13, 2012
    Michael Jordan, whose claim to ownership stems almost solely from his inability to admit defeat as a player, has, if only by his actions, admitted defeat as president. The dinosaur is making himself extinct. THIS IS NOT how Jordan envisioned life as an NBA owner when he bought the 6-year-old Bobcats from cable-TV magnate Bob Johnson in 2010. The six- […]
  • Improving the site

    By Brett on September 3, 2012
    It’s not a giant leap forward, but if you look at the header bar on the site now, you’ll see a new link available:  Roster.  From there, you can either select a player from a dropdown list of all players, or go to the Roster page itself, where you’ll be presented with a depth chart of current Bobcats.  The player […]
  • Bobcats working out ex-Wake Forest baller Josh Howard

    By Spencer on August 30, 2012
    Rod Higgins, president of basketball operations for the Bobcats, confirmed today that Josh Howard will be doing some workouts with the team this week. Josh Howard’s career has been nothing short of controversial as he’s admitted to smoking marajuana in the off-season and also stated that it shouldn’t be a secret that many NBA players do. That may be very […]

  • Eduardo Najera to retire; will become head coach in D-League

    By Spencer on August 21, 2012
    Eduardo Najera has decided to step down from playing basketball and venture into the coaching aspect of the game, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. At the age of 36 and coming off a gruesome head injury (skull fracture) last season, the time is now right for Najera to move on in the basketball world. Najera spent two seasons in Charlotte […]
  • Scoop Jardine will get invite to Bobcats training camp

    By Spencer on July 31, 2012
    Scoop Jardine. The name that I utilize as leverage to get back at a disgruntled Syracuse fan for years. Syracuse, an NCAA juggernaut most seasons, hasn’t found a way to reach the summit of the mountain since Carmelo Anthony left and their fans reflect that frustration. My buddy in college would always ridicule me for being such a diehard Charlotte […]
  • 2012-2013 Schedule Released

    By Spencer on July 27, 2012
    So the Bobcats schedule for next season came out. Anyone super excited? Meh, me either. To point out some of the headliners, though, I’ll run through it anyways. Charlotte will play their opening night game at home against Indiana and also play 8 of their first 12 games of the season at home. The defending champion Miami Heat will visit […]
