Come on back down Bobcats fans. We got some stuff to talk about.
Hello Bobcats fans. Before everyone blows last night’s loss completely out of proportion, I feel that I need to share a few things with everyone. This is done to keep everyone, including myself, calm. We have to be realistic about this team. They are better than last year. Make no mistake about it; we will have a better win percentage this year than we had last year. That is a given. The harsh reality is that we will most likely not be a playoff team. If we DID happen to make playoffs, our ground-up rebuild would quickly be derailed. You build through drafts, acquisition of young talent via trades, and free agent signings. A playoff appearance would erase a high draft pick for the year unless Cho can pull off some sort of trade to net us a high first round pick. Follow me on this journey through the very young history that is the 2012-2013. There’s a lot to be proud of, but everyone needs to keep some ...

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, Reggie Williams & Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats ran into comedian Carrot Top on Tuesday in Atlanta. Wonder if he had any jokes about last night’s game?
ATLANTA When Ben Gordon has a team on the ropes, he rarely pulls a fourth-quarter punch. On Wednesday night, the Hawks were just fortunate the bell rang before one of the NBAs streakiest scorers could deliver the knockout. Atlanta pulled out a 94-91 victory, but Gordon and his Charlotte Bobcats teammates sure went down swinging.
I just tried to be aggressive and force the issue...
“We kind of know that OKC is a test for us, we failed it miserably,” coach Dunlap said after the Bobcats were beaten by a number so huge that it needed to be written in scientific notation. He’s right about Charlotte failing miserably. This was their first test against a traditional powerhouse, and it went [...]
The good folks from Bleacher Report did some digging and found a similarity between the Bobcats depressing loss last night and a game that his airness played in 1990. The Bobcats finished their game against the Thunder with 69 points tonight on shooting 23-79. In 1990, their now-owner Jordan dropped 69 points on shooting 23-37. That is sad.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- Gerald Henderson chuckled when asked, but only because of the absurd reality of the question.
Yes, he said, before pausing for a second. Its like that. Its a different atmosphere. But theres no doubt we have some of that spirit.
The spirit Henderson acknowledged is one he knew all too well playing three seasons at Duke. But it isnt because of regular home experiences...
Perhaps I was hyping up this solid start to the season for the Bobcats a bit too much. Then again, maybe we can chalk Charlotte’s latest loss up to a poor shooting night and the fact that they were facing one of the top teams in the entire league. Or maybe we should take Monday [...]
Possibly the only bright spot of the night...
When you're hot, you're hot. When you're not, you're the Bobcats playing the NBA Finals runner-up Thunder. This was a nightmare of a game to watch. My oldest son said there was no point in watching and that the Bobcats were going to lose. I explained that in order to write a game recap, I had to watch. He suggested...
There are blowouts, and then there are routs. And then there are lambastes. And then there are trounces. And then there are clobberings. Also thrashings. Whichever one of those you find to be most devastating, that's what the Thunder did to the Bobcats last night. As you can see if the photo above, OKC led by 54 at one point in the third quarter. 54!
This game ended up at...
ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats each hit 12 3-point shots Wednesday, but a missed 3-point attempt decided the game. Byron Mullens' last-second shot hit the back iron, and the Hawks hung on for a 94-91 win. "That was a really tough win for us," Hawks coach Larry Drew said. "I thought they were getting after us more than we were getting after...

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Before the Charlotte Bobcats took the floor Monday, coach Mike Dunlap told his players to not listen to the outside noise. Even though the team had already matched its win total from the previous season, he didn't want the Bobcats to start believing the hype about how good they were. Dunlap's words turned out to be prophetic, as the Oklahoma City Thunder...
While the Charlotte Bobcats have shown significant improvement this season, there weren't many positives to take away from their last game.
Things aren't about to get much easier with another matchup against the surging Atlanta Hawks up next.
The Bobcats conclude a three-game trek looking to bounce back from their worst loss in franchise history Wednesday night against...
