    • Early Trade Results

      By Brett on January 2, 2008

      The Bobcats have now had Nazr Mohammed's services for 9 games – and they have only 3 wins to show for it. So, bad trade, right? Maybe not, actually. Nazr has not really been to blame for the recent results – he has been outperforming Emeka since he came...

    • A Different Take on an MVP

      By Brett on December 21, 2007

      What is an MVP? Tough question to answer (though I should be able to pass along a link in the next few days that takes a shot at answering it). My thought – Wins is a good place to start. How about a “Wins +/-”? But not the actual...

    • Big Trade (Literally) in Charlotte

      By Brett on December 14, 2007

      Watching the NBA pre-game show on ESPN and it was just announced that the Bobcats have traded Primoz Brezec and Walter Herrmann to Detroit for Nazr Mohammed. And I am thrilled…mostly. A little sad to be losing Walter, it was fun to watch him play at the end of...

    • Ask (or comment) and Answer

      By Brett on December 13, 2007

      People actually talk about one of my posts and how do I respond? By taking a several day hiatus – not sure that was a good move. Perhaps indicative of some kind of antisocial behavior or extreme introvertedness (is that even a word)? No, just tired – work and...

    • Welcome Back, Ryan Hollins

      By Brett on December 8, 2007

      With the Bobcats in the midst of a seven game losing streak, the point has been driven home about the importance of depth: If you don't have it, you're not going to be very good. You may be thinking, come on, Ryan Hollins cannot be that important. He is,...

    • I am a Link Manager

      By Brett on December 4, 2007

      A couple of links:-Early Season MVP and ROY ranking – Brought to you by BrewHoop (and lots of bloggers). Yes, I participated and no I do not feel bad for this incredibly early look at after-season awards.-Bobcats sign Anderson Varejao. In a related note, Danny Ferry and LeBron James...

    • What's Wrong With Crash?

      By Brett on December 1, 2007

      Well, not much, I guess…but enough that it is worth looking at. Mainly, Gerald Wallace is being less Crash-like this season. He is shooting the ball more, making fewer, turning the ball over more, and rebounding less. Put it all together, and it is not a good mix. First...

    • The Big 3 of the Charlotte Bobcats

      By Brett on November 29, 2007

      Henry at TrueHoop had a post up today about the magic number 3. The focus was on the logic behind the way the Spurs handle their personnel: Keep their main 3 guys, Duncan, Manu, and Tony Parker, and surround them with complementary players who will not cost too much....

    • Bobcats versus Celtics Recap – 11/24/2007

      By Brett on November 25, 2007

      The Bobcats won the game…up to the last second…when they made one of the worst plays I can recall. Inbounding the ball with 4 seconds left, up by 2…and they turn it over…within shooting range. A quick pass over to Ray Allen – ballgame. It is all over but...

    • Bobcats lose to Magic…and Stephen A. Smith – 11/23/2007

      By Brett on November 24, 2007

      Quick hitter recap today, as I am tired and the game was…not good.-Dwight Howard is a monster. He finished the game with nearly as many dunks as points (not possible, I know, but it seemed like it). He makes Emeka look small and no one else on the team...
