For a franchise that won a mere seven games last season en route to the worst season in NBA history, winning a couple of games here and there may seem like a breath of fresh air. In that case, the Charlotte Bobcats 7-10 start through the team’s first seventeen games may be the biggest surprise of the early NBA season. But, as with most cases there are always detractions that come with success. And in the Charlotte Bobcats’ case you have to wonder if they winning too many games too fast. The more victories the Bobcats steal this season, the lower the chances of Charlotte landing another top five pick to add another crucial young piece to their budding core. It may be early, but it wouldn’t hurt if Charlotte came back to earth for the remainder of the season.
Let’s be honest here, the Bobcats are not making a shocking playoff appearance this season, you know it, I know it, and general manager Rich Cho certainly knows it. They may be capable of challenging playoff-level teams like the...

Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft, returned in the third quarter of Saturday night's game against San Antonio after leaving earlier with an back injury.
Kidd-Gilchrist appeared to tweak something in his lower back while battling for a rebound under the basket in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room.
He fell straight...
The Charlotte Bobcats invited legendary boxing ring announcer Michael Buffer to make his trademark introduction before Wednesday night's game at the Time Warner Cable Arena against the New York Knicks.
Buffer tailored his intro to "the millions watching across the Carolinas" as he proudly announced "Let's get ready to rumble!"

In their continuing quest to seek out new ways to lose in the most agonizing manner possible, the Bobcats discovered two gems this week. On Monday they went from hitting the Ben Gordon Lottery to flat broke in 5 minutes. On Wednesday they figured, “Why bother trying to defeat the Knicks ourselves when J.R. Smith [...]
I would have a joke for this post but since I don't have my prop trunk...I feel that I would be doing a disservice to a Carrot Top-related post.Last week, Mr. Top met Michael Kidd-Gilcrist, Byron Mullens, Reggie Williams and Gerald Henderson at a hotel in Oklahoma City: (Courtesy of USA Today)
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist blocks Gary Neal`s shot and finds Jeff Taylor for the emphatic dunk. Visit http://www.nba.com/video for more highlights.
OMG, they weren't kidding...Boris smells horrible!
Another night, another loss. It's really hard as a Bobcats fan to run a blog site as professional as possible and to not get carried away by fast starts and solid wins. In the same breath, however, it's hard to not drift back into the mentality that I had last season. That mentality was one where I didn't see...
As is often the case with NBA scheduling, mercy is in short supply. The guys have been dealing with some especially hard knocks of late. Perhaps, the scheduling gods thought, the time is ripe for an away/home back-to-back. Starting things off is a trip up to Milwaukee for a game against the streaking Bucks. Luckily for the Bobcats, the “Deer” have been streaking in the same direction...
So far I’m 1-0 for the month of December. I’m pretty sure you are too, in regards to predicting the December record for the Charlotte Bobcats, but still. Undefeated is undefeated. The good news is, I didn’t really give Charlotte much of a chance in last night’s game with the formidable New York Knicks. Instead [...]
The matchup of the night for the second game of a back-to-back in Charlotte will be between point guards Tony Parker and Kemba Walker.
Parker is having a great season so far averaging 18.3ppg with 7.3apg while Walker is averaging 17.1ppg and 6.2apg.
With both guards using their speed to their advantage, it will be interesting to see how Walker defends on the perimeter and...
Since the Charlotte Bobcats matched their win total from last season's record-setting debacle, they've slipped right back into their losing habits.
Facing a surging San Antonio Spurs team likely won't cure their woes.
Charlotte looks to avoid a seventh consecutive loss Saturday night against San Antonio, which begins a four-game road trip.
The Bobcats finished the...
The San Antonio Spurs (16-4) are back on the road as they face the Charlotte Bobcats (7-11) tonight in Charlotte.
The Spurs are coming off a 114-92 win at home versus the Rockets where six Spurs players scored in double-digits.
"Great start to a back-to-back. Good win for us,” said Tim Duncan (12 points, 12 rebounds) after the game, “we focused early."
