Found November 28, 2012 on Fox Sports Carolinas:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- Gerald Henderson chuckled when asked, but only because of the absurd reality of the question. Yes, he said, before pausing for a second. Its like that. Its a different atmosphere. But theres no doubt we have some of that spirit. The spirit Henderson acknowledged is one he knew all too well playing three seasons at Duke. But it isnt because of regular home experiences in front of Dukes Cameron Crazies, the schools fabled student section known for their passion, theatrics and noise level. It has more to do with how coach Mike Krzyzewski has his team play on the court. Watching Duke or an average ACC game differs significantly in the eyes of most fans from the NBA game. That is why fans of one version often dont spill over onto the other. Along Tobacco Road where college basketball is essentially a religion, the Charlotte Bobcats took a risk in hiring a coach whose career had mostly been as a college assistant until taking over a team last spring that had just...

Charlotte Bobcats Trade Rumors: Who Could Be on the Trade Block?

The Charlotte Bobcats have surprised everyone with a solid start to the 2012-13 NBA season, sitting at 7-7 and for the moment holding the eight and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Whether or not that spot holds 68 games from now is anyone’s guess, but trade talk is going to swing around eventually. [...]

Is this all legit or are the Charlotte Bobcats good?

I don’t know.  I’ll be the first to tell you, I don’t know.  Whether the Bobcats are good, bad, lucky, suckering teams, winning close ones early in the year only to lose them later, a fluke or on to something real and sustainable.  I don’t know.  All those adjectives or suspicions have definite truths to [...]

Charlotte Bobcats Meet Up With Carrot Top

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, Reggie Williams & Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats ran into comedian Carrot Top on Tuesday in Atlanta.  Wonder if he had any jokes about last night’s game? via @GHJr09

Bobcats Buried Up to Their Necks in Sand, Beaten to Death with Shovel

“We kind of know that OKC is a test for us, we failed it miserably,” coach Dunlap said after the Bobcats were beaten by a number so huge that it needed to be written in scientific notation.  He’s right about Charlotte failing miserably.  This was their first test against a traditional powerhouse, and it went [...]

Hawks edge Gordon, Bobcats for sixth straight

ATLANTA When Ben Gordon has a team on the ropes, he rarely pulls a fourth-quarter punch. On Wednesday night, the Hawks were just fortunate the bell rang before one of the NBAs streakiest scorers could deliver the knockout. Atlanta pulled out a 94-91 victory, but Gordon and his Charlotte Bobcats teammates sure went down swinging. I just tried to be aggressive and force the issue...

Charlotte Bobcats vs. OKC Thunder Review: What We Learned

Perhaps I was hyping up this solid start to the season for the Bobcats a bit too much. Then again, maybe we can chalk Charlotte’s latest loss up to a poor shooting night and the fact that they were facing one of the top teams in the entire league. Or maybe we should take Monday [...]

Back to Earth

Come on back down Bobcats fans.  We got some stuff to talk about. Hello Bobcats fans.  Before everyone blows last night’s loss completely out of proportion, I feel that I need to share a few things with everyone.  This is done to keep everyone, including myself, calm.  We have to be realistic about this team.  They are better than last year.  Make no mistake about it...

Authors of the TSP Table – A Back to Earth Discussion

We really need to get the conference room cleaned up... You know, here at Trade Street Post, we strive to give you every game recap, any interview we can score, and any news nugget that we can find about our beloved Charlotte Bobcats.  Other times we do not share emails that we all have back and forth among one another, when we decide to start discussing articles.  We typically...

Hawks Barely Win Against Bobcats

So, how does a team come back from a 45-point beat down earlier in the week?  Let me remind, again, that the team dishing out that beat down was an NBA Finals team.  Unlike last season’s Bobcats, they come back to lose by only 3 points in the Hawks house.  The final score was 94-91.  It was a great game to see, even though I was stuck on the phone for most of the second half...

Reminder: NASCAR Guys Aren’t Athletes

Here’s NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski “hooping it up” during halftime at a Charlotte Bobcats game, and I’d make more jokes about how he’s terrible, but he’s not much worse than the Charlotte Bobcats.

Hawks survive 3-point barrage from Bobcats' Gordon

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats each hit 12 3-point shots Wednesday, but a missed 3-point attempt decided the game. Byron Mullens' last-second shot hit the back iron, and the Hawks hung on for a 94-91 win. "That was a really tough win for us," Hawks coach Larry Drew said. "I thought they were getting after us more than we were getting after...

Hawks 94, Bobcats 91

Al Horford scored 17 points and hit two clinching free throws to help the Atlanta Hawks win their sixth straight game with a 94-91 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. Josh Smith and Lou Williams also had 17 points apiece for the Hawks. Ben Gordon finished with 26 points and Ramon Sessions had 18 to lead Charlotte, which has lost two straight and three of four...

Bobcats-Hawks Preview

While the Charlotte Bobcats have shown significant improvement this season, there weren't many positives to take away from their last game. Things aren't about to get much easier with another matchup against the surging Atlanta Hawks up next. The Bobcats conclude a three-game trek looking to bounce back from their worst loss in franchise history Wednesday night against...
