Sorry Bro: Sports Through Houser:
As you can see in Desagana Diop's free throw last night, anything outside of a foot has a rare chance of going in. At least the technique is there, unlike Chuck Hayes and Joakim Noah. Do big men still have to make 10 free throws in a row before they leave practice? [Follow me @TravisHouser]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
We won’t say DeSagana Diop is the worst player in NBA history, but the dude is totally a waste of space.
The Cleveland Cavaliers made him the eighth overall selection in the 2001 NBA draft. He somehow stuck around with them for four years and he’s now wasting space for the Charlotte Bobcats, where he brings his gaudy career averages of 2.0 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
Is this dude f'in serious? He didn't even come close to hitting the net! Wow!
Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson will sit out Saturday night against the Washington Wizards after re-aggravating his back in Friday night's loss to Philadelphia.
Henderson missed Wednesday night's game against the Wizards, but returned to play against the 76ers.

Wow! What a week for the Charlotte Bobcats. Those of you that have read my rambling in the past know that I prefer not to go off on tirades on the current and very dire straits of the franchise. With that in mind, the above words are about the only thing I can really say. [...]
Former Cleveland Cavaliers lottery selection DeSagana Diop airballed a free throw last night. It was fairly epic.
The best part may be that his second attempt went glass.
Over 10 NBA seasons after being selected eighth overall in 2001, Diop has averaged 2.0 points per contest. The 7-footer is making $6.5 million this year.

Like a recurring nightmare, the Bobcats and Wizards played again on Saturday night. My first impression was astonishment at what a large, lively crowd was on hand in Charlotte. Who were all of these self-flagellators, and is there a Guinness Book of World Records category for “Most Masochists in a Single Room”? At least they [...]

I missed this dunk from Saturday’s game. It is awesome.

Let me start by saying that I had to whip this up real quick. I’ve got a long car ride coming up tomorrow and I have to sleep at least a few hours so I’m around to author this blog come Sunday morning. I’m also in a pretty lousy mood, apparently. I didn’t even realize the extent of it until I re-read this sh!t. It’s bursting at the seams with negativity. ...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson will sit out Saturday night against the Washington Wizards after re-aggravating his back in Friday night's loss to Philadelphia.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — With 4.6 seconds left in the game Saturday night, JaVale McGee stood at the free-throw line, with the Wizards up by three points over the Charlotte Bobcats. McGee missed them both. With the clock winding down, Bobcats guard Matt Carroll had a good look at a 3-pointer ...
