Found March 25, 2012 on BobcatsPlanet:
PLAYERS: Paul Silas
TEAMS: Charlotte Hornets
Some may consider this no big deal, but I think it is. The supposed head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats stepped aside Saturday night and let his son—who does happen to be one of his assistant coaches—and let him coach the team. Apparently it was not the first time he’s done this but the fifth. [...]

This will mark the fifth time he has coached the team this season. Twice he took over after his father was ejected, while he coached the team for games against the Nets on March 9 and Toronto on March 17. Paul...

Charlotte Bobcats' Dismal Season a Lesson in Pluses, Minuses of NBA Draft Lottery Format

Watching the Charlotte Bobcats play basketball brings to mind the shower scene in Bull Durham. What's their record? Seven and 39. How did they ever win seven?

Bobcats Angrily Deny Rumors of Losing 20 Games By 20 Points, Say It’s Only Been 15

After the Bobcats lost to Milwaukee on Saturday, Rick Bonnell wrote that it “was the 20th time in a 7-38 season the Bobcats have lost by 20 or more points.”  Well the joke’s on you, Rick: it’s only been 15 games.  How do you like them apples, sucker?  I actually went back and counted to [...]

Michael Jordan needs to be hands-off for Bobcats to succeed

No matter how you slice it, Michael Jordan is likely in anyone's top five players in NBA history. A six-time NBA champion (and six-time Finals MVP), five-time NBA MVP, 10 scoring titles, 9-time All defense first team, and a 14-time All-Star, Jordan was peerless in his playing career. Even his comeback with the Wizards from 2001-2003 produced in both the box office (home attendance...

Tank City? Charlotte Bobcats seek the number one pick

How many times have we seen this before: teams tanking the season in order to secure the number one pick in the draft? Unfortunately for the Charlotte Bobcats, securing the number one pick takes more than having the worst record in the league. Unlike the NFL which automatically rewards the worst team with the first pick in the draft, the NBA has a lottery system that decides where...
