BEST OF MAXIM
Charlotte Bobcats forward Corey Maggette was forced to leave Monday's game against the New Orleans because of back spasms.
Maggette played just 10 minutes, scoring four points on 1 of 4 shooting before exiting. He did not return.
Maggette, a starter, came into the game averaging a team-high 16.2 points in his first season with the Bobcats.
Well, it was a good run for Corey Maggette while it lasted but the inevitable happened last night. Here’s what I said last week about our buddy Corey: Corey Maggette – 25/7/1 on 6-12 FG and 13-14 FT. Here´s what I said back on February 14: Corey Maggette – Posted 22/2/0 with 3 steals in 32 minutes. I had him as an Add on Friday and hope you grabbed him. He’s going to be...
I may never forgive Corey Maggette for being just good enough that when he plays 10 minutes and leaves the game with back spasms, that I have to mention it. He knows how much I hate mentioning Bobcats! So here it is. Feast you’re eyes on the good news if you’re a Reggie Williams owner (or about seven clicks away from being one! Go! Go!) and bad news if you’re a Maggette owner...
The Nets and Bobcats have had trade talks on a deal that would send the expiring contract of Boris Diaw to New Jersey for several players and a first round pick.
I often wonder, if Coach Brown were still in Charlotte, would he have played this 19-year-old, or would he be rotting away on the bench, playing Yahtzee with Hendo and Augustin...I'm just so glad I'll never have to know.So, would having the name “Hornets” net us more wins or support? Personally I don’t believe so, but if something happens down the road, we’ll cheer...

In a whipsaw three-day period, the Bobcats got a taste of arguably the NBA’s best and worst teams. The results were predictable: against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bobcats had fewer answers than a Sarah Palin interview and were blown out in a disaster that left fans drooling and cross-eyed. Then against the Hornets on [...]
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Congo rookie Bismack Biyombo blocked Trevor Ariza's last-seconds dunk attempt to allow the Charlotte Bobcats to celebrate a 73-71 victory over the New Orleans Hornets in the NBA late Monday.
When Ariza faked a pass and bolted past Gerald Henderson in the final seconds, Henderson suspected Ariza's lane to the hoop for a potential game-tying score wasn...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Gerald Henderson scored 15 points, rookie Bismack Biyombo blocked Trevor Ariza's driving dunk attempt in the final seconds, and the Charlotte Bobcats held on for only their sixth victory this season, 73-71 over the New Orleans Hornets on Monday night.

Jamal Crawford is on the trade block and a source says he could be dealt to the Bobcats for D.J. Augustin.
Bismack Biyombo didn’t feel like playin’ overtime. That was just one of his 4 blocks in this game, and one of 31 shots he’s rejected over his past nine games. Maybe equally as impressive are the three double-digit scoring games he’s had over the same stretch. If you’ve ever watched the guy play it’s pretty damn clear that he’s going to be (actually, he already...
