Blogcat’s Take, 5/10: 6th Man of the Year

Last week I started with a seemingly simple question—who was our MVP?—and ended up coming up with an answer more convoluted than Mulholland Drive. This week won’t be any better, and in fact will probably be worse, but at least I know it going in: who’s the Bobcats’ 6th Man of the Year? First, I want to acknowledge how happy I am to even be in the mood to wonder about it...

Charlotte Bobcats: The final stretch begins

Credit: Joshuak8 As the saying goes, “A win is a win.” But as the Charlotte Bobcats head down the home stretch, these wins will be worth more and more. At this point the Bobcats should be in the clear to make the playoffs barring some miraculous run from the Knicks, which, since it’s the Knicks, isn’t very likely. Now it becomes an issue of seeding. If the playoffs began...

Fantasy Basketball 2014: The Neal Deal

Credit: Brock Williams-Smith/Getty Images Gary Neal For a guy with a reversible name, Gary Neal has nearly experienced it all in the last 12 months of his NBA life. After coming up big for the Spurs in the NBA Finals against the Heat last season, he wasn’t re-signed and instead was given a respectable $6.5m two-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. Everyone’s seen how bad the Bucks...

Gary Neal rescues the Charlotte Bobcats from a sloppy matinee

Brandon Knight’s summation of the fourth quarter was short and to the point: “Gary did his job,” Milwaukee Bucks point guard Knight said of his former teammate.

Neal went on to say he's "happy...

The Charlotte Bobcats chose not to play recently-acquired shooting guard Gary Neal Wednesday in a road game against the Washington Wizards, saying only this was “an internal team matter.” Neal, who arrived from Milwaukee along with point guard Luke Ridnour at the trade deadline, was coming off his best game as a Bobcat.

Blogcat’s Take, 2/22

Blogcat’s Take, 2/22 The Bobcats’ trade for Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal at the Thursday deadline was certainly not earth-shattering. Actually, it wasn’t even glass-shattering. In fact, if you had a Shattering Scale that ranged from porcelain china to Play-Doh, this one would rank a Nerf. But it might end up being a tiny bit [...]

Trade Recap: Bucks find way to move Gary Neal

The Bucks won their tenth game this week, and honestly, I thought that would be the high point. In a season that has featured not one win streak, but has rather been full of dreary defeat, I found it unlikely that we could compound such a dramatic victory with more positivity. Boy was I wrong. Gary Neal made a name for himself as he exploded for six three pointers and twenty-four...
