    • 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...

      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...

    • The Impact of Earl Boykins

      By Brett on February 1, 2008

      Well, this should certainly take care of one of the Bobcat's biggest problems: Rebounding. Ok – not really. It should help get McInnis off the court some though, which will be a welcome change. And the drop-off in rebounding will be less than you might expect: For their careers,...

      By Brett on January 29, 2008

      Some more links for you to peruse (I had a part in both): MVP and Rookie rankings again – I voted LeBron number one – and now KG is trying to get votes by missing games so everyone realizes how important he is to the Celtics. Well played, sir...

    • 76ers versus Bobcats – 01/26/08

      By Brett on January 27, 2008

      Too bad the NBA does not use elementary school basketball rules (specifically, 24 minutes in a game), because the Bobcats would have one more victory. Unfortunately for them, there was a second half to play…and the tired Sixers were a lot better than the tired Bobcats. In particular, Gerald...
