Cats Stats: 2013-14 Season Overview

Well, the season premiere of our favorite show, the comedy/horror series known as the Charlotte Bobcats, starts in Houston tonight.  And though the producers have barraged us with mindless zombies the past couple seasons (Gana Diop, Tyrus Thomas, Byron Mullens), I’ll actually be at the edge of my seat not knowing what to expect this [...]

Terrible Bobcats Business Decisions, Vol. I: The Tyrus Thomas Signing

I bought a used car just over a month ago and I’ve already sunk almost a thousand dollars’ worth of repairs in it. First the air conditioner stopped working and then the radiator started leaking. Now I’m distraught and terrified to admit the awful truth: my car might just be injury-prone. And so, with my [...]

2013 NBA Free Agency: 10 Cheap Options the Bobcats Should Consider

The Charlotte Bobcats have had a pretty good off-season. They drafted a potential franchise player in big man Cody Zeller, brought back versatile big man Josh McRoberts and signed paint-changer Al Jefferson.

Tyrus Thomas Now Exists in Fans’ Cubicle Calendars Only

According to Rick Bonnell, Tyrus Thomas didn’t even join the team on the latest West Coast road trip. I find this stunning, considering that coach Dunlap has shown he’ll still play guys who are willfully insubordinate (Ben Gordon) or who are willfully trying to eat their way onto a future season of The Biggest Loser [...]

Charlotte Bobcats Land Josh McRoberts, Makes Little Noise at NBA Trade Deadline

The Charlotte Bobcats have disappointed, yet again. Not only have they been abysmal for the majority of this 2012-13 NBA season, but they couldn’t even add some extra excitement during the NBA trade deadline this year. Tyrus Thomas is out of the rotation and is widely regarded to be on the outs with the franchise. [...]

Bobcats outplayed in lopsided loss to Bulls

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It wasn't hard to figure out Friday night why the Charlotte Bobcats have the worst record in the NBA. You didn't even have to look at the scoreboard, the one reading 105-75 in favor of the Chicago Bulls. Forget their league-worst 42 percent field-goal shooting, too. Forget that Charlotte likely didn't start a single player that would have started...

Can Tyrus Thomas Dunk?

Remember when Tyrus Thomas jumped over former Bulls and current Bobcats teammate Ben Gordon in the Slam Dunk Contest?  That was in 2007, almost six years ago to the day.  Tyrus was a 20-year-old rookie then, a slam-dunking pogo stick of a power forward who seemed to enjoy attempting to tear the rim down every time he got the chance. A lot can change in six years, especially in...

Warrick, What He Isn’t Good For: Closing Out Games

I should first say that I’m totally in favor of playing Hakim Warrick over Tyrus Thomas whenever it’s humanly possible, and probably also when it’s possible for cyborgs, androids, mutants, Vulcans, Terminators, Robocops, UniSols, replicants, and robots with human brains. Thomas has been an abject failure for the Bobcats, and Warrick is better than him [...]

Tyrus Thomas’ Wife Gets Stomped In Charlotte Bar Fight

Chris Paul and the L.A. Clippers celebrated a mediocre 100-94 win over the Bobcats with a late night party in downtown Charlotte. The party was thrown by Chris Paul and, get this, a member of the Pussycat Dolls. Since all NBA players are best friends, Tyrus Thomas and a few members of the Bobcats were in attendance for the festivities. Of course things got ugly. Of course wives were...

Click here to view the embedded video. A familiar face showed up on the Charlotte Bobcats’ practice court yesterday. Owner Michael Jordan stepped in for some one-on-one drills, likely in an effort to energize a team that has lost eight straight after starting the season 7-5 — a record that matched their win total all of last season. The 49-year-old Jordan spent time with team...
