    • Bobcats versus Dallas Recap – 3/12/08

      By Brett on March 15, 2008

      I just wanted to do a real quick recap of this game, even though it is a few days late. Why? Because of some tremendous quotes – not from players or anything, but my wife. She only watches games because I do – she likes sports, but not enough...

    • You Make Me Break Out…Again

      By Brett on March 14, 2008

      No Foo Fighters this time…instead a link to a web version of the classic “BreakOut” game (called javanoid): Go break some bricks. Then come back and read this…or just read this – if you are only going to do one, stay here. Please. Back to the task at hand:...

    • You Make Me Break Out

      By Brett on March 12, 2008

      Ok – so I was going to embed the video to “Breakout” by the Foo Fighters…but they apparently do not want me to do that – “Embedding disabled by request” is displayed on the official video page of youtube. So, here is the link – click on it to...

    • Better Box Scores

      By Brett on March 11, 2008

      Since I spent last night waxing eloguent (or what passes for it from me) about Kobe Bryant, it made me feel motivated to do something useful. Which I did this evening. Inspired by a short lived idea from kenpom.com, I have made a page that creates HD box scores...

    • The Black Mamba and The Basketball Jesus

      By Brett on March 11, 2008

      (This is a post written as part of Kobe Bryant Day – organized by Hardwood Paroxysm) Frequency in the “I'm Keith Hernandez” Zone: Bird owns this category … in fact, he probably had more Hernandez moments than any athlete in any team sport (peaking with some of his shot...

    • Speed It Up

      By Brett on March 8, 2008

      I was watching the San Antonio/Denver game last night on ESPN (the program guide told me Fox Sports South had the Bobcats game – it was a liar), and they showed a graphic about pace for various teams. Since it was a matchup of one of the leagues faster...

    • With or Without

      By Brett on February 24, 2008

      With Gerald out for a couple of weeks, it made me curious – How does the team play without him…and then really without him. What I mean is, is there an appreciable difference in the numbers between time he spends on the bench in his jersey and when is...

    • I am a link manager

      By Brett on February 18, 2008

      Well, All-Star Weekend did not involve a Bobcat (again) – but it prominently featured a near Bobcat: Superman, bithday cake, and more – The Dunk contest is back, thanks to Dwight Howard. And, yes, I still imagine how things would played out if Orlando took Emeka instead. Even if...

    • Lakers vs. Bobcats Recap 02/11/2008

      By Brett on February 12, 2008

      Not much to say…there was a brief period of hope in the 4th quarter, but the Lakers controlled this game from the beginning. I fully expected to see a dominant offensive display when I went to see the Lakers play the Cats…I just did not expect it from Pau...

    • Nets vs. Bobcats Preview 02/08/2008

      By Brett on February 8, 2008

      Bad news/good news to start, with the bad first: The Bobcats are 18-31 on the season…which is the same record they had last season after 49 games. Another troubling note: This year, the average margin of defeat is 4.7, up 1 from last year, when the team finished the...
