Wallace could miss current trip

Based on coach Larry Brown's pregame comments, he doesn't anticipate forward Gerald Wallace rejoining the Bobcats in time to play any of this three-game road trip to Miami, New Orleans and Dallas.

A death in the family sent Wallace home to Alabama on Sunday. Brown said he anticipates Wallace being back to work Friday, when the Bobcats will practice in preparation for Saturday's home game against the Detroit Pistons.

Probably won't matter anyway, we might have a chance against Miami but the other two were L's to begin with.

This team = choke artists, I'm too disgusted to even type my full thoughts, but...

Biggest BS call of the year on Dudley, that ref needs to be fined, suspended, or forced to write an apology to the team. Changed the dynamic of the entire game down the stretch.

Tough pill to swallow, but that's the kind of call that superstar players get, and that's basically the difference between Miami and Charlotte. Bobcats will continue to be a 2nd tier NBA team until they get a true genuine all-star. Richardson and Wallace will not cut it. Like it or not, that's the way NBA games are officiated.

Free throws kill, they make all the difference both driving the lane and causing fouls as well as hitting them. Seems like a game changer Charlotte can't figure out yet..

I know many of us want the Bobcats to perform like other big teams; Lakers, Celtics, Spurs, Mavericks, Cleveland, etc. I want you to look at the histories of these teams. The struggle their own diffuclties before emerging to being vibrant teams. If the Bobcats is to be a team to contend with other teams, it requires good recruiting, coaching and management of the team. Previously, the team has struggle with all of these; now there is a good coach who produce results. However, the Front Office need to contemplate better on how they recruit players. Like it or not, the Bobcats has good players impersons of Richardson, Wallace, Augustin, Felton & Okafor (inconsistent), but the rest of the players need to be sent to a development team. I am particularly suprised this season with the performance of Matt Carroll. If you watch the game between the Bucks and Bobcats, you'll noticed that when he replaced Richardson at the dying minutes of the game, his performance was even burdensome then help. Evaluate this guy and find out if he's ready to play. People are looking for jobs and if he has one and is not performing, let him out.

Thank you "aaronsiafa" for that realization for Bonnell, he was the one that lobbied so hard for Matt...

Get him to a better situation for him and this team. And get someone else in that spot!!!
