Bobcats start process of changing name to Hornets (CBSSports): Now it's time for a magic trick

Will Brinson of CBSSports.com reports that a Bobcats-to-Hornets name change has begun. Some time ago, after a particularly annoying conversation in the upper deck of the Cable Box with a couple of...

Mike Dunlap: To be pessimistic or optimistic?

Let's assume it's true that Mike Dunlap is every bit the Xes and Os expert and teacher that George Karl, Steve Lavin, and a bevy of high-level coaches say he is. The biggest question I have is that...

Rosterbation: Cubs make everybody available -- except...

The Shark? Yup. If Nightengale is right, then Samardzija is apparently the only guy not available. But this is what jumped out at me: "Shortstop Starlin Castro already is a star at 22 but can be obtained for two impact prospects." Don't the Giants have that? Does Belt still count? Belt and Gary Brown for Castro is a win for us, right?

The Good Point on Jeremy Accardo

+
When the Baltimore Orioles came calling with a minor league contract offer in December, Jeremy Accardo didn't have to think twice before accepting it. After all, he had already endured a rollercoaster of a tenure with the Toronto Blue Jays and was anxious for a fresh start. After starting the 2007 season with 21 consecutive scoreless innings, Accardo emerged as the Jays' closer, replacing Jason Frasor who was filling in for incumbent closer B.J. Ryan, who had been shut down due to injury. Accardo flourished in the role, notching 30 saves to go along with a 2.14 ERA in 64 games, and it seemed the Jays had a promising asset on their hands. Sadly, it all went downhill from there.

Bulls top Bobcats 106-94 -- Gerald Henderson shines off the bench

In a game somewhat atypical of both the Bobcats and Bulls, Chicago outgunned Charlotte en route to a 106-94 victory.

The Cats have beaten the Bulls twice this season, and in those games, four and five players each took at least ten shots, implying that offensive responsibility was spread fairly evenly.

Silver Screen and Roll: Train, meet ditch

In theory, there are ways this could've been more embarrassing. The Lakers could've lost this badly, say, in Cleveland instead of Charlotte. Kwame Brown could've celebrated the Bobcats' 20-point win by throwing a birthday cake in Luke Walton's grill. Or the Lakers could've all forgotten to wear shorts and been forced to stand at center court while the Bobcats' cheerleaders pointed and laughed. Barring these scenarios, though, tonight really could not have unfolded any more disastrously for the Lakers, who got their skulls caved in by Charlotte, 89 to 109. Just like that, we have a promising new candidate for Worst Loss of the Season.

The Bobcats still have the Lakers' number. Charlotte continued the most surprising run of dominance one team has over another by defeating Los Angeles 109-89 tonight.

A win against the Lakers would be fantastic, but in the end I'm much more interested about what the game might tell us about the Cats moving forward.

Peachtree Hoops: Initial reaction to Bobcats-Hawks game

Kudos to Paul Silas for doing something very few coaches do at the pro level---start different players other than the starters to begin the second half. Unless it's for injury, the book says start your starters again to begin the second half, but DJ Augustin was as ineffective in this game as Livingston was effective so Silas went with Shaun to start the second half. Bold and effective.

It could be true! But if it is true, and the referees do "profile" the players and take into account past transgressions... is that wrong?
