Kemba Walker and Dwayne Wade aren’t the first offensive options you associate with the Bobcats and Heat these days, not with Al Jefferson and LeBron James handling the majority of the duties for the Bobcats and Heat. Still, both showed off some righteous crossovers in Game 1 on Sunday. So which one was better? Read More »

The Bobcats have valiantly attempted to stay with the Heat in Game 1 this afternoon, but the tweaked plantar fascia of Al Jefferson has limited his mobility, and the Heat have a double-digit lead in the fourth. None of that changes the unexpected Josh McRoberts jam he threw down on Chris Andersen. Read More »

The NBA postseason is upon us and it should be a great one. The Western Conference has three can’t-miss first-round series, while the elite teams in the East look to get by some of the new faces in the playoffs.

For teams like San Antonio, Miami, Oklahoma City and Brooklyn, the most important key to the first round is to stay healthy. San Antonio and Brooklyn have veteran rosters and will need the extra rest to stay healthy throughout the playoffs. Read More »

Michael Jordan Finally Has Something To Cheer About In Charlotte

Michael Jordan

Only two years ago, the Charlotte Bobcats finished with the worst regular season winning percentage in NBA history. But now, after the acquisition of Al Jefferson over the summer (totally underrated at the time) and another year to gel and mature for Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson, the Bobcats are the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference. On Wednesday night, even Michael Jordan started clapping as they took the lead in OT over the playoff-bound Bulls. Read More »

In a game between the last two teams to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, it came down to a final shot and the final half second. Sweet Lou Williams tied the back-and-forth battle, 93-all, with two seconds remaining in regulation and many in Atlanta prepared for OT.

Instead, it was\ Chris Douglas-Roberts, who got the ball when the ball was passed in. Read More »

Before Shabazz Napier, there was Kemba Walker. Walker came into the league with a lot of hype and not a lot of opportunity to grow and learn from his mistakes. Playing for Charlotte meant most fans were only going to associate him with the team’s W/L record and for that, the UConn product was a perennial loser. Read More »
