We’re in December now, and as I flipped my 2012 Bobcats wall calendar to reveal Matt Carroll as this month’s pinup, I noticed a disturbing trend. The six featured players in this year’s calendar were Stephen Jackson, Carroll, Shaun Livingston, DJ Augustin, Gerald Henderson, and Tyrus Thomas. In other words: traded, traded, traded, traded, injured, [...]
We really need to get the conference room cleaned up...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Jason Richardson hit four clutch 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to help lift the Philadelphia 76ers to a 104-98 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night. Richardson's 3-pointer with 7:30 remaining gave the Sixers the lead for good at 86-83, then he drilled two more in the next three minutes as the Sixers pulled away and eventually led by as many as...
