Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

I almost never make playful sporting bets with my friends anymore because I never win. It seems Michael Kidd-Gilchrist might suffer from the same affliction. He watched last night’s championship game with former UConn stud and current Charlotte teammate Kemba Walker and when it was all over, his point guard made MKG rock a UConn t-shirt. Cold-blooded.

Meyers Leonard, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

The Bobcats worked a nice little inside-outside game with Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker and totally destroyed the Blazers Friday night.

There’s a clear difference in a team that’s attempting to tank and a team that is flat out bad. There are teams that are constructed to be bad. Take the Philadelphia 76ers for example.

In basketball, one thing is guaranteed: someone will win and someone will lose. This season, it appears the entire Eastern Conference (save Indiana and Miami) are playing Twisted Metal and driving tanks, trying to see which team can blow up the quickest.
