The NBA Passionista:
It was late in the fourth quarter Wednesday night during the Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons game, that rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist posterizes Greg Monroe. Lucky for the Pistons, and Monroe’s dignity, they pulled out the win over Charlotte; 105-99. The post Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s Dunk on Greg Monroe (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
BEST OF MAXIM
At 22-34, this season hasn’t been kind to the Pistons. But when you travel to Charlotte, you expect things to look fine and dandy as the Bobcats are a horrific 13-41. And while the Pistons came away with a 105-99 win, it didn’t come easy – especially for Pistons big man Greg Monroe. Monroe took some punishment from Bobcats’ rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
When you are a 6-11 NBA center, the last thing you want happening to you is having a someone dunk on you and putting you on a poster. Unfortunately for Pistons' Greg Monroe, it happened to him last night courtesy of Bobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
In the fourth quarter, Kidd-Gilchrist went in the paint with one dribble, took his allowed two steps, went straight for the...

I first scouted Michael Kidd-Gilchrist back in 2008 when he was just a slender sophomore at St. Patrick’s High School. Playing alongside the likes of Kyrie Irving and Dexter Strickland, it was MKG who was the chief product of the hoops hype machine — the next big thing. He had all the physical gifts in the world and...
I’m so excited about the Bobcats trading Hakim Warrick to the Magic for Josh McRoberts! Not because I think the trade will matter much—seriously, Weird Al Yankovic albums have more significance than this deal—but because it frees me up from having to think about last night’s loss to the Pistons. Against Detroit, the Bobcats sandwiched [...]
Tweet When the Charlotte Bobcats selected Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the second-overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, they knew they were getting a kid with a ton of athleticism and energy. He put his athletic ability on display on Wednesday night against the Pistons with this dunk: Greg Monroe probably had to call somebody and [...]
The Bobcats are looking for a first round pick for Gerald Henderson.
Michael Jordan just turned 50 and you would have had to have been in a coma to have missed that fact with all the celebration going on.
Much of the debate the past week has been about what Jordan would do to LeBron James or any other player in the prime of Jordan’s career.
The question now though is what would MJ do today, right now if he was the starting shooting guard for the...
The remainder of Brandon Knight’s 2013 season appeared to be in jeopardy for a brief moment on Wednesday night. While chasing a loose ball in the Detroit Pistons’ 105-99 win over the Charlotte Bobcats, Knight had his right knee rolled up on by a diving Kemba Walker.
Knight’s knee hyperextended and he dropped to the ground, clutching that knee in pain.
Nasty looking injury...
Terrence Williams spent 3 years in the NBA with 3 different teams and struggled to stay out of trouble. After being cut by the Detroit Pistons during training camp, the once sought after Louisville forward had to go to China to play basketball. Williams averaged 17.9 PPG in China and rekindled his career to the point where the Boston Celtics decided to give him a chance, signing...
Detroit Pistons' second-year guard Brandon Knight has been listed as day-to-day after hyperextending his knee against the Bobcats as well as twisting his ankle. Knight injured his right knee after Kemba Walker fell on it during the third quarter, which was later diagnosed as a hyperextension. Knight later tried to return to the game but promptly twisted his ankle forcing him...
The Nets are not interested in acquiring Ben Gordon.
The Pistons already made a major move in January.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The last time the Charlotte Bobcats were in Orlando, an injury forced Byron Mullens to watch as his teammates scrapped their way to a narrow win.
This time, he made sure his presence was felt.
Mullens had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson scored 24 points apiece, and the Bobcats survived a second-half comeback to hold off the Orlando...
