Yes, nothing will make them feel dumb quite like Zeller's inevitable 8-6-1 line. That'll show 'em!
It just plain doesn't matter. If they continue to suck on the court, nobody will care, no matter whether they're called Bobcats, Flight, Hornets, or the Tune Squad.
Yeah, his 13 wins between '01 and '04 clearly prove he couldn't drive anymore after his father's death. The only problem with Jr. was the decline of DEI once Teresa had to take over.
ss, you're a joke. Bickerstaff had the team on a consistent track of improvement despite the NBA's mandated salary limits on the team, which were lower than any other team's. And that coach that players didn't respect? It's funny, but he's been coaching in the NBA each season since Bickerstaff was dumped by Jordan and his cronies, never on the same staff as his father again. And how could you POSSIBLY complain about J.B. Bickerstaff when Cory Higgins--one of the most worthless players in Bobcat history--only has a job because his godfather owns the team.
Ha...Sean May didn't have problems with injuries. He had problems with eating. It's not anybody's fault but his that his joints couldn't sustain his body weight.

QCK: We do owe Chicago a first-rounder, but it is top-14 protected this coming year, top-12 in '013, top-10 in '014, and top-8 in '015 before finally being unprotected in 2016.
Toggle Commented Nov 27, 2011 on 5 pressing issues for the Bobcats at Inside the NBA
Instead of whining about the NFL Network, why don't you just go out to watch it like the rest of the world? Great GB-DET analysis. I've got similar thoughts on tomorrow's NY-NO game: If New York can come out and stay smooth on offense and score more points than New Orleans does, they'll definitely win the game. BP, you're an idiot. Moore had two perennial Pro Bowlers on his team in Gross and Kalil. He simply can't handle the pressure of playing games that matter (which his in Miami absolutely don't.)

I'm not sure what point you're making. The whole point of the Bryant story is that he DIDN'T ignore Brown, and Brown still failed, mostly because of his own lack of his ability in his talent. Sandy, Morrison never got a chance after his injury. He was one of the top ten rookies his first season, and could easily have stuck in the league, even if only as a deep bench shooter a la Korver or Kapono.

Tom Sorensen, just another member of the Charlotte media more interested in having "excitement" than wins.
It's not Pugh's fault. It's Rivera's, for not even TRYING to find a starting-caliber corner to augment Gamble. Munnerlyn is a nickel, and Stanford, Butler, and Thomas are dimes at best. When you have to bring in a SAFETY for your nickel package, that's a PROBLEM. Then again, perhaps Pugh wants to follow Godfrey's track record of allowing TDs and blowing coverages all the way to the bank. And IWI: They won't get rid of Davis. He's part of the "core!" That's why they blew nine million on him before he even played a single snap this year.
Yeah, William, you're RIGHT! We should be PROUD of our team's 0-2 start. At this rate, they're on pace to lose 16 really close games! It's so EXCITING!
1999, when we were second in the league? Where were you, Tom?

OK, so delusional was obviously among the things Richardson was looking for in hiring a coach. Check. Explains why the first eight interviews landed him not so much as a sniff.
Awful. There is NOTHING about Texas that says they should be a part of the ATLANTIC Coast Conference. The conference has been nothing but watered down since the last expansion. Why continue down that foolish road?

Well let's see, Tom. Did Baylor and that girl have a contractual business relationship? Did that girl choose to break off that deal to the detriment of not only Baylor, but their whole family (Big 12) and neighborhood (Texas?)

PD, you're absolutely right. This team will be lucky to match last year's two wins.

Aren't pro wide receivers SUPPOSED to make difficult catches? Well, with Newton's horrid accuracy, I suppose we'll get the chance to find out.
Newton barely completed 40% of his passes! He can't do anything but chuck up a deep jump ball and cross his fingers.
A punt returner? THAT'S what we gave up the #33 pick in the draft for?

Yes, Richardson looks GREAT for punting an entire season on the fans' dime. Now we can re-sign the core of a 2-14 team! How could that not work out?
Pitiful, pitiful move by the owners, and this move has Jerry Richardson's grubby fingers all over it. The smug look on his face at the ratification announcement was enough to tell the story. After most of the progress in negotiations being made after Richardson was kicked out of the room, now he tries to pull a fast one in the 11th hour. Sad.
Yeah, VA, NOBODY has an urban ballpark...except Durham, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Indianapolis, Memphis, Norfolk, Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Louisville, Chattanooga, Jacksonville, Toledo, AND Montgomery. It'll never work.
How many congressmen do you know that have lied under oath, Doc? Just checking. steve, he's not being tried for using steroids. It was a violation of the rules and a stupid choice, but the problem here is that he lied about it under oath.
Only two of the last nine QBs drafted #1 have even managed to put up a win-loss record of over .500. Glad we're not trying to buck the trend or anything.
