We need to see more of this guy on the floor. With playing time comes experience and education.

It must be that time of the year. If you’re a Bobcats fan, you know what time I’m talking about. It seems like every season, from Mid-November through January, the Bobcats turn into this team that no one wants to watch. They stop playing defense, ball movement gets sloppy, and overall, they just begin to burn their fans’ patience out. This is MY perspective of the team and the fans right now. I have my own thought as to why this happens (at least this season), so you'll have to keep reading.
We’re almost exactly halfway through the season, and we are 15 – 23. For the pathetically weak NBA Eastern conference, that’s still good enough for the #8 seed in the NBA playoffs (we did beat Brooklyn, so we’d be in there). How crazy is that? Are you wondering about the Western Conference? Their #8 seed would currently have a record of 21-16 (Dallas Mavericks). There are only 5 teams in the Western Conference that have a sub .500 win record. In the East…there are 4 teams with .500 or BETTER. Seems like a problem there, but I will digress. We’re here to talk Bobcats Basketball, so take the jump to see how tonight’s loss went down.
