The Bobcats beat the Heat, moving them to 2-0 and 1st place in the SE division. We did a heck of a lot better at the free throw line.

Richardson, Felton, Wallace, and Okafor have been playing like beasts so far.

Wow, we got spanked tonight by the Suns without Amare....oh well I wasn't expecting 82 wins...maybe 70 but not 82.

I wouldn't say it was a horrible showing by Charlotte tonight but I would say they played rather poorly, especially Okafor. Emeka should have had the ball in his hands down low on nearly every other possession but they just couldn't get things going anywhere offensively. Okafor is really going to need to start showing himself of a little more worth offensively if he is expecting his contract extension to be any higher than it was prior to the seasons start. I wouldn't be surprised if the offer goes down if he continues to play this poorly on offense.

Yeah, I didn't watch the game, 0 points?! With Sean May out, he is the only reliable big man who can score. Won't win any games if he is hacking it up.

I really don't get these Bobcats, they play great the 1st 2 games, blown out the next 2.....then they have one of their best 4th Quarter ever.

The Bobcats are 4-3 after beating the Heatless for the 2nd time in 10 days.

I'm really enjoying talking with myself BTW.

Stopped the Sonics 2 game winning streak. J-Rich, Wallace, Felton, and Okafor each had strong games again.

For this team to have any realistic playoff hopes Emeka Okafor is going to have to be soooo much more consistent than he has been so far. I don't know if I could stress that enough. In my books, he's really only had one strong showing this year so far and that was against the Pacers. Granted he had a helluva game against them posting 25pts and 23rebs but in most of the other games Charlotte has played this season he has been non-existant on the offensive side of the ball. His production on defense is a bit down from last year as well. I hope for Okafor's sake and the Bobcats that the concerns will be dispelled as a readjusting to the rhythm of the game rather than something else (such as reality setting in that Okafor isn't built to dominate the pro level the way he did the collegiate).


Something startling: Okafor was 0 for 6 going SCORELESS against the Suns who were WITHOUT Amare Stoudemire.

A big man going scoreless against the Suns LACK of defense which was even missing it's best big man defender is of very notable concern.

Yeah you make some good points. Okafor had another disappointing game against the Heat last night, he is very up and down although he is still playing well this year, but I want to see more offense out of him.

Well we have lost 4 in a row with a Ray Allan last second 3 to win and a 20 point blow out by the damn Heat, aka Charlotte Bobcats Basketball that we all know and love.

Bobcats finished up the West road trip with a 1-4 record deciding to not show up in certain quarter's preferably the 2nd half ones.

Especially because I have them in the NBA GM Mock, SK21 has right now. If we are either 8/9/10 I think the Bobcats take Kevin Love but if the 1 out of 10 chance we get a top 3 pick we will take Beasley or Lopez

Nope. He is our best player and the Bobcats want him. Well see if they try to make a run at a big time player in Free Agency.

Hey guys. Im a Bobcat fan. We need to sign Emeka Okafor needs to be signed back if we want to have any chance at competing next year. The direction of the team could have gone through the roof if we would have gotten one of the top picks. Michael Beasley makes us a playoff team.
