I’m so excited about the Bobcats trading Hakim Warrick to the Magic for Josh McRoberts! Not because I think the trade will matter much—seriously, Weird Al Yankovic albums have more significance than this deal—but because it frees me up from having to think about last night’s loss to the Pistons. Against Detroit, the Bobcats sandwiched [...]

The Charlotte Bobcats have disappointed, yet again. Not only have they been abysmal for the majority of this 2012-13 NBA season, but they couldn’t even add some extra excitement during the NBA trade deadline this year. Tyrus Thomas is out of the rotation and is widely regarded to be on the outs with the franchise. [...]
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist plays for the Bobcats, meaning he has to do something amazingly good or amazingly bad to get people’s attention.
Last week, he did something amazingly bad when his 19-year-old body couldn’t take down just-about-50-year-old Michael Jordan. But this week, the rookie has redeemed himself somewhat with a stellar dunk.

February has been an interesting month for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. A few weeks back, Bobcats fans watched in horror as the promising rookie lay crumpled on the floor, out cold after an unfortunate knee to the head from teammate Jeff Taylor. Gilchrist showed no signs of movement from the moment he hit the floor, and was eventually carried out on a stretcher. In addition to the scary...

ESPN’s Marc Stein reported Thursday that the Celtics were interested in signing former Bobcat forward, D.J. White, to a 10-day contract. Doc Rivers confirmed that the Celtics are indeed brining in White prior to Boston’s game in Phoenix Friday night.
In his fifth year out of Indiana, the power forward averaged 21.6 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game with the Shanghai...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It wasn't hard to figure out Friday night why the Charlotte Bobcats have the worst record in the NBA.
You didn't even have to look at the scoreboard, the one reading 105-75 in favor of the Chicago Bulls.
Forget their league-worst 42 percent field-goal shooting, too. Forget that Charlotte likely didn't start a single player that would have started...
It was late in the fourth quarter Wednesday night during the Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons game, that rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist posterizes Greg Monroe. Lucky for the Pistons, and Monroe’s dignity, they pulled out the win over Charlotte; 105-99. The post Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s Dunk on Greg Monroe (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.

I first scouted Michael Kidd-Gilchrist back in 2008 when he was just a slender sophomore at St. Patrick’s High School. Playing alongside the likes of Kyrie Irving and Dexter Strickland, it was MKG who was the chief product of the hoops hype machine — the next big thing. He had all the physical gifts in the world and...
Breaking news: The Celtics are shockingly looking for big men to fill the two roster spots they have! (Yes, I'm having fun with those who thought the Celtics made a mistake by not trading for a big yesterday as if the league abounds with them.)
Steve Bulpett has reported a shortlist of five names:
From today's Herald, big man names C's have discussed: Jerome Jordan...
The Nets are not interested in acquiring Ben Gordon.
There haven't been much for Charlotte Bobcats fans to cheer about this season but last night, rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist decided to bring the fans to their feet with this epic poster dunk.Watch as Michael rises up against Detroit Pistons center Greg Monroe and throws it down rather emphatically:
Tweet When the Charlotte Bobcats selected Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the second-overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, they knew they were getting a kid with a ton of athleticism and energy. He put his athletic ability on display on Wednesday night against the Pistons with this dunk: Greg Monroe probably had to call somebody and [...]
At 22-34, this season hasn’t been kind to the Pistons. But when you travel to Charlotte, you expect things to look fine and dandy as the Bobcats are a horrific 13-41. And while the Pistons came away with a 105-99 win, it didn’t come easy – especially for Pistons big man Greg Monroe. Monroe took some punishment from Bobcats’ rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
