Blogcat's Take: 2016 Draft

Jun 25 2016 12:52 PM | Blogcat in NBA Draft

I’ll say this for Rich Cho: the Hornets GM doesn’t just zig when everyone thinks he’s going to zag, he turbo-zigs. He hyper-zigs. He zigs 88 mph in a DeLorean. My gut reaction to the decision to trade the 22nd overall pick in the draft for Marco Beline...

Apr 08 2016 03:00 AM | buckets in NBA Draft

A recent thread was devoted to Winslow vs Frank vs Booker and I finally took a proper look at picks #9, #10, and #13. Personally, I think all 3 teams 14 lottery teams did well for themselves. Every 2015 lottery selection has played 1200+ minutes except...

Blogcat's Take, 6/27 - The Post-Draft Edition

Jun 27 2015 10:48 AM | Blogcat in NBA Draft

Man, after the last 48 hours, my head is spinning right round—like a record, baby, right round. Trades! Draft picks! Sleeved Jerseys! During the draft I was so wired and discombobulated that I was basically reduced to trolling Rick Bonnell on Twitter (...

Jun 26 2015 04:36 AM | Chef in NBA Draft

I am too disappointed to think about him starting or not. Still just shaking my head. in defense of not taking winslow: winslow is an undersized sf or a non-shooting, weak handled sg whichever way you prefer to look at it. i keep seeing 6'6", he meas...

Jun 28 2014 02:09 PM | Blogcat in NBA Draft

My lord, find me a happier set of weeks in Bobcats/Hornets history since...ever? I guess with the franchise’s recent agreement with the NBA you’re technically allowed to reach back to the original Charlotte Hornets, but those don’t count because I wasn...

People were already wondering if he could stay healthy with the super sketchy back injuries. Now he also has an injured foot, likely a fractured foot. If it is the serious type of fractured foot (like Brook Lopez) that requires a player to miss aroun...
