Yes, James Johnson 7-of-11 shots on his way to 15 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks. A magnificent line (albeit with two turnovers and four fouls). He also threw down the sick dunk above. But this type of line from Johnson is far too rare. There are too many 0-fors or 1-fors and foul plagued nights to get excited.
There's no questioning Johnson's athleticism, just like Tyrus Thomas. So much ability and untapped potential. But how many years have fantasy players been saying this about Thomas? Thomas is a tease. We saw it on January 25 when the injury-prone Bobcat blocked nine -- nine! -- shots to go along with 13 points, nine rebounds and four steals. But Thomas quickly reverted to his inconsistent self, likely leading to you benching him. You'll likely never have him in your lineup at the right time to get the rewards.
Same with Johnson. Coming into Wednesday night, he'd scored in double figures in only six games. Johnson gets into foul trouble, taking him out of games. He played 30 minutes Wednesday, something he hadn't done since January 25. If you need steals and blocks, I don't blame you for sitting on him. But don't expect consistency.

The Bobcats continued their rather lengthy road trip as they have been out since 1/31. Things are different for the Celtics, who started off the season rough and sluggish. They currently ride a 4 game winning streak and have all of their players healthy. It's a different story for the Cats as they are still without Corey Maggette, DJ Augustin, and Gerald Henderson; who are...
In the video above, WEEI speaks with Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas, who won two NBA championships with the Celtics in the 1970s.

Hello Bobcats fans. Shortly after the loss to the Boston Celtics last night, I got to thinking. We have had some bad seasons in our short history, but this one is pretty bad. Our first season (2004-05) ended with an 18-64 record. This year, we’re on pace for 9.84 wins. That’s right folks, we’re on [...]
As I suffered through the Bobcats’ ill-fated invasion of the crumbling Boston Celtics empire on Wednesday, I was reminded of why I love the Showtime drama Dexter so much. Dexter’s plot had an extremely shaky starting point (a story about an affable serial killer named Dexter) that has only grown increasingly ridiculous with each new [...]
