CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats gave up on guard Shannon Brown when they traded him in 2009, and Wednesday night they paid dearly for it. Brown exploded for six 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, including two that served as daggers in the final 3:09, as the Phoenix Suns squandered a 15-point second-half lead but regrouped down the stretch to beat the Bobcats 117-110. The 6-4 Brown, traded by Charlotte to the Lakers in 2008 in a multi-player deal that included Adam Morrison, finished with a team-high 24 points. That’s 13 more than his average coming into the game. “He’s very capable of doing that,” Phoenix Coach Alvin Gentry said. “He gets on a roll and watch out. He’s had some games like that for us last year – maybe not six threes in a quarter, but he’s had some big shots for us when it counted most. He’s a very confident player and when he gets on a roll, he’s one of those guys the rim looks really big. Obviously, all those shots were big for us.” Brown claimed no...
BEST OF MAXIM
PERFECT FROM DOWNTOWN
Shannon Brown’s name doesn’t ring bells like it did when he was running next to Kobe Bryant, back when his breakaway dunks made him something of a national sensation, at least until he left his faction sorely disappointed with an uninspired performance in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest. His recognition has never really recovered from the letdown, but that isn’t to say Shannon...

Tweet When the Charlotte Bobcats selected Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out of Kentucky with the second overall pick in this year’s NBA draft there were more than a few who questioned how much he could add on offense to a team in need of scorers. An area that wasn’t in doubt was his ability to [...]
The only one who could play any defense on Shannon Brown on Wednesday night was Charlotte Observer beat reporter Rick Bonnell. Bonnell limited the Suns’ Brown to just 4 3-pointers in his write-up of the Bobcats’ loss to Phoenix. The only problem is that in reality, Brown actually scored six 3-pointers, all of them [...]
In Phoenix, everything has changed. Well, not the terrain. Its still always hot there, and they still grow cactuses.
As for the basketball team, man, what a fresh start.
The Suns now play an everyday style, methodically working the ball for the best open shot. They defend and scrap and possess very little pizzazz.
Not that the Steve Nash teams were a bunch of running...

Welcome back, fantasy basketball owners. It’s been too long and I couldn’t be happier that the NBA is back.
The gift and curse of fantasy basketball is that not nearly as many people play it as baseball and football. This is great for my twitter timeline since I don’t have to scroll through thousands of waiver wire articles and people incessantly tweeting about their line up...
It's been awhile since we've done a Charlotte Bobcats-related post but this defensive effort against the Phoenix Suns is note worthy.Watch as Tyrus Thomas and Bismack Biyombo combine to block a couple of shots from Suns forward Markieff Morris:
Struggles are all but guaranteed for the Charlotte Bobcats and Phoenix Suns as each squad battles through a rebuilding phase.
An injury to Gerald Henderson will almost certainly add to the Bobcats' anticipated hardships.
