    • Prospect Profile – D.J. Augustin

      By Brett on June 12, 2008

      No outlandish haircuts or crazy dunks to start this one off. In fact, I will be brief, with just a couple of points I want to note before sending you off to follow links. 1. Augustin is short – He measured at 5'11.5″ at the pre-draft camp in Orlando,...

    • Help Wanted – Must Be Tall

      By Brett on June 9, 2008

      A by the numbers look at why the Bobcats need post helpWith the draft approaching like a glacier, slowly but surely advancing, I thought about the Bobcats' pressing needs: More quality depth in the post and a backup point guard (preferably one that does not have a fork sticking...

    • Prospect Profile – Russell Westbrook

      By Brett on June 7, 2008

      (Photo courtesy of Mr. Irrelevant) How's that for an introduction? Certainly better than being introduced like the opposition was to Westbrook in these next 2 videos: A different way of starting these posts, I know, but when you have a picture and highlight clips that good, you have to...

    • Draft Notes for 6/04/08

      By Brett on June 4, 2008

      Some odds and ends that I happened across today:First up, a couple of snippets from the chat on ESPN.com today with David Thorpe: Brett (charlotte, nc): Of the bigs possibly available at the 9th pick, Lopez, Love, Randolph, Arthur, who do you like best to pair with Okafor in...

    • Prospect Profile – Brook Lopez

      By Brett on June 3, 2008

      I swear it is coincidence that the day I decided to put together a profile of Brook Lopez, Chad Ford released the numbers from the pre-draft camp in Orlando. A couple of them work in Lopez's favor: His height, measured at 6-11.25 (barefoot) and 7-0.5 (shoes), and his wingspan,...

    • Prospect Profile – Kevin Love

      By Brett on June 1, 2008

      For the second entry in prospect profiles, we go to the other end of the spectrum from the previous entry on Anthony Randolph: Where Randolph is relatively unknown, having played for a weak LSU squad, Kevin Love was on tv more than American Idol this past year with his...

    • Prospect Profile – Anthony Randolph

      By Brett on May 31, 2008

      With the draft approaching, it is time to be considering who the Bobcats might/should take. Given that the team's glaring needs are for more big men and a backup (starting?) point guard, that is where I will focus these looks. Today, we start with Anthony Randolph:Randolph is a 6'-10(11/)”...

    • Ziller On Point/Combo Guards

      By Brett on May 27, 2008

      I know I have been slacking – but when all the Bobcats managed in the past month was to fire Sam Vincent, hire Larry Brown, and drop a spot in the draft from 8th to 9th – what was I supposed to write about? (If in doubt, re-read, but...

    • The Bobcats MVP of 2007-08

      By Brett on April 17, 2008

      When John Hollinger was breaking down the Mike Bibby trade for ESPN a couple of months ago, he made a remark that caught my eye: A basic rule of thumb is that every additional point of PER is worth one additional win over 2,000 minutes. While PER is not...

    • I am a link manager

      By Brett on April 15, 2008

      Yes, I remember that the last post I did was also “only” a links post – that is why I am going to be offering a bit more analysis of the provided links, so you can get your money's worth this time: Wages of Wins looks at the Cats...
