Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Not your average Bobcats
Last year when the Charlotte Bobcats appeared on the schedule it was marked down pretty simply as a win. The Bobcats were not just bad, they were historically bad, comically bad and hopelessly bad. Whatever young players worth saving from that team, you worried had picked up too many bad habits from such a hapless season.
The Bobcats look different now. And it is not just the rebranding of the franchise that took place this offseason. The Charlotte Bobcats are, gasp, a good team.
The Bobcats are 5-4, a game over .500 and two wins away from tying last year's historically low mark. Charlotte did not win its fifth game last year until March 6 or game 36. The Bobcats are slightly ahead of schedule it would seem.
Ramon Sessions scored 23 points off the bench, making all 10 of his free throws. Kemba Walker has been superb in his sophomore year...
BEST OF MAXIM

“If Ramon Sessions continues to play as he has this first month he’ll end up the best free-agent signing in Bobcats history,” noted The Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell, clearly forgetting about Othella Harrington and Dontell Jefferson. Still, Sessions has been pretty good. His 3-pointer on Monday night to tie the game late against the Milwaukee [...]
The Charlotte Bobcats won just seven games in 2011-12, by far the worst team in the NBA. Just how bad? The second worst team in the league won 13 more games than Charlotte. The Bobcats were putting their hopes into the NBA Draft lottery, hoping to land star big man Anthony Davis.
He was going to instantly come in and change the franchise. Just one problem, the lottery ping pong balls...

Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyrus Thomas will miss approximately two months due to a torn left calf muscle. The team announced Monday that an MRI showed a second-degree calf strain and a torn plantaris muscle, a muscle that helps the calf flex the ankle. Thomas, hurt Saturday in the Bobcats' home loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, won't require surgery. Thomas was averaging...
Don’t look now, but your Charlotte Bobcats are 5-4. That’s right, they’re a game above .500, riding a crazy four-game winning streak, and have a date with the hapless 3-7 Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. Should they laugh in the face of the gods, they could enter Thanksgiving Day as a very, very thankful bunch. [...]
Ramon Sessions scored nine of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of free throws with 4.2 seconds left to seal the game, and the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Milwaukee Bucks 102-98 on Monday night.

Since opening 1-3, the Bobcats have lost just once, 94-87 to Memphis on Saturday when they...
Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder) put down a nasty fastbreak slam dunk over Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors). This just isn't fair really -- Curry is still a minor, right?
