Tyrus questionable for Rockets

Charlotte Bobcats power forward Tyrus Thomas woke up in Houston this morning with a sore knee and missed shootaround. Whether he plays tonight will be a game-time decision, according to the team.

Thomas missed six weeks while recovering from knee surgery to repair torn cartilage. He's been back two games -- both victories -- helping to break a season-long six-game losing streak.

and in other news...since the current roster is now loaded with a bunch of no-name players resulting from the Wallace trade, the bobcats will continue their southward slide to the lower regions of the Eastern Conference standings.

Bonnell, will we be seeing a blog tomorrow on how well Diaw played if he in fact does tonight? Doubt it. He's reached Augustin status in your book of judgment!

Tyrus's problems seem far from over. He is essential if this team has any chance of playing extra games.

Tyrus definitely has more problems than Liv and Liv has outlasted his knee problems. I think he is doing a great job with his knee this year and boy he is only getting better. I think we can pull this game out without Tyrus, but it will be very difficult.

We knew when we got Tyrus he was going to be a health/injury risk.

Well, the good news is is that Scola and Terrance Williams are out for them tonight too.

Some of you guys are immature and lack some knowledge in the game of basketball. Rick Bonnell has more BB knowledg in his pinky finger than any of you fans, and MJ will prove to be a great owner as we gain more experience as a franchise. I look forward to our growth. I just wish we could change our nickname to the Carolina Cougars. I love Charlotte, but I think we could take a lesson from the Panther's playbook, and include all the fans from both Carolinas in our name. The Bobcat name is too remindful of our previous owner. If however the NBA contracts, as it should, (Sacramento, New Orleans, Toronto, and Utah), and we could get the Hornet name back, then I say revert back to the Charlotte Hornet name. South Carolina loves that name as much as North Carolina does.

shut up! deal with things as they are not as you want them to be.

Will name changed make this team better or more fans? Okay! Possible name could be The Carolina Flyers or The Carolina Wings. This will commemorate the invention of the first aerial vehicle by The Rights Brothers from North Carolinas.

On December 17, 1903, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the Wright Flyer became the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve controlled, sustained flight with a pilot aboard.

December 2003 will mark the 100th Anniversary of this historic and groundbreaking achievement. Learn how two small town businessmen invented a technology that would define the 20th century

First off the 100th anniversary is almost 8 years ago at this point...so yeah let's celebrate that by renaming our team. Also I'd love to know who these Rights Brothers are and what they did for the North Carolinas, because I can't reference that name anywhere on the vastness of the internet.

Maybe the Utah Jazz will give up there name and the Hornets can pick it up. Then we can pick up the Hornets name again. Actually, I don't care if we are the "Queens" (after Queen City) as long as we win ball games. Right now, I'm a lot more interested in additional scoring and rebounding and any money spent should go in that direction since that would increase wins a lot more than a name chance.

Major Smart....Utah contract???? Why on earth would the NBA contract Utah? They sell out every game and have been a model franchise for 25+ years.

Posted by: steve | Mar 17, 2011 10:58:01 AM

Why would anyone respond to Major Smart when his opening sentence is

"Some of you guys are immature and lack some knowledge in the game of basketball. Rick Bonnell has more BB knowledg in his pinky finger than any of you fans, and MJ will prove to be a great owner as we gain more experience as a franchise."

That should tell you he is clueless right there.
