Poll: Who Would Win Kentucky Wildcats Versus Charlotte Bobcats?

+

This morning on one of our threads, this question was posed. It was more rhetorical than anything. Basically, could your last year's team beat the worst NBA team, Charlotte Bobcats?

POLL: Who Would Win? Kentucky Wildcats versus Charlotte Bobcats

The question was posed by: That last Kentucky team probably could have beat last years Bobcats they really were that bad, and Kentucky really was that good by HeuristicLineup on Jul 7, 2012 9:47...

As previously reported, it'll be a two-year deal. The total package will be worth $10 million... Roy, 27 and a three-time All-Star, sat out all of last year because of bad knees. He was a free agent because Portland used its amnesty clause on him. The source said the Wolves were satisfied with everything Roy verbalized to them about his health. He underwent a version of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, which is helping him to resume playing. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is one of a handful of athletes who have undergone a comparable procedure in Germany to help prolong their careers.

Brandon Roy Going to Minnesota Timberwolves Not Kings news, but I thought this was interesting with all the news on free agency.

Be afraid; be very afraid. Two big men brought together by the hands of fate; two big men whose futures may be linked by time and circumstance. Two big men who pair together to form a formidable frontcourt.

The Consensus Mock Draft is a compilation of the best mock drafts around the web. We bring them together to come up with a good estimate of how the draft could play out. Most Common Picks: 1. NOH Davis (12) 2. CHA Robinson (10) 3. WAS Beal (10) 4. CLE Barnes (7) 5. SAC Kidd-Gilchrist (7) 6. POR Lillard (8) 7. GSW Drummond (5) 8. TOR Waiters (5) 9. DET Henson (5) 11. POR Zeller (6) 10. NOH Rivers (4) 12. HOU Zeller (4) 13. PHX Ross (4) 14. HOU Leonard (4) Most common: Pick at which the player is most commonly projected, with number of mock drafts in parentheses. For example, Anthony Davis is projected to go first in 12 of the mock drafts listed below. Top 14: To calculate the consensus, we awarded 14 points for the first overall pick, 13 to the second, continuing to 1 for the final lottery pick. The player with the highest point total represents the top overall selection. Consensus Mock Draft By Drew Packham, NBA.com Last Updated Jun 27 2012 10:09PM

In a game of cat and mouse, NBA general managers salivate to outmaneuver each other come draft day. Yet, unless there is a trade for a pick, there is only so much wiggle room in which to work, as each team’s pick is already determined. Their strategy: maximize their chances of landing the player they want, while minimizing any action which could reduce their chances.

Not so fast, though. It could get a little bit dicey with Bradley Beal and Harrison Barnes shaping up to be the fourth pick to Cleveland. According to Sam Amick, it is unclear who they would chose between these two guys. Now remember, the Sacramento Kings are in need of an NBA-ready SF. If Barnes falls to the 5 the team will most likely select him. If he doesn’t fall to the 5 and Beal does, then the picture gets a bit murky. There is still time between now and then. People have been known to change their minds at the last minute.

...the biggest difference between the Sacramento Kings to the NBA Eastern and Western Champions is the absence of any player in the top ten. Each of those two teams has two. Other than that, all other things being equal, the Sacramento Kings players match up well to these two teams.

Petrie simply can't have another offseason like last year's: signing overweight Chuck Hayes and ineffective Travis Outlaw, reacquiring John Salmons (a duplication of Tyreke Evans), and bypassing in the draft a much-needed small forward – Kawhi Leonard could have been here – for the smaller Jimmer Fredette.

The Maloof family does not want to be in Sacramento. Think about anything you have ever wanted like a relationship or even a job. If you want nothing else than to get hired or fall in love, you don’t give up. You take risks and you figure out a way to make your dreams happen. The owners of the Sacramento Kings have shown none of that here.

Head Shot RageThe New York Times NBA Blog By LYNN ZINSER Considering the Artest-era history, the league could have justified something much longer and, as Bill Plaschke writes in The Los Angeles Times, the Lakers are very lucky to escape World Peace’s latest lapse with only seven games. They are far luckier than poor Harden, whose future remains clouded by his concussion. Chris Mannix of SI.com joins the chorus usually heard with N.H.L. suspensions and decries the N.B.A.’s unwillingness to send a harsher message. But Ken Berger of CBSSports.com lauds the league for not overreacting, although it is hard to argue that a league can take head injuries too seriously.

1. Hollywood Griffin: The main storyline in this game is pretty easy. All eyes will be focused on Blake Griffin and DeMarcus Cousins after the two shoved each other, and nearly came to blows in the Clippers' 93-85 win over the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night. After the game, when Griffin refused to discuss the incident, Cousins said, “Of course that's what Blake is going to say because he's in L.A., where actors belong. He's an actor, so of course he would say that." When Cousins was asked about his fifth foul on Griffin with more than a minute left in the game, he said, “I guess the wind from my hand hit him in the eye and I guess he got fouled by the wind. I'm not sure.” Needless to say there may be some unfinished business between the two 48 hours later. What to watch Clippers-Kings by Arash Markazi, ESPNLosAngeles.com
