Video: Bobcats fall to Warriors at home
Kemba Walker scored 24 points and dished out six assists, but it wasn't enough in the Charlotte Bobcats' 104-96 loss to the Golden State Warriors. Charlotte has lost eight of its last nine games.

dear charlotte sports fans. please stop booing a group of rookies and 2nd year players over things like shot clock violations. they will figure that ish out. if you let them.
because booing helps them do better and everything. you boo opponents. you boo when your gm hires his undeserving son. (you cheer when he gets cut) you boo when a ref makes a bad call. you boo when ben gordon makes 4 turnovers in a row in a close game in the 4th quarter because he's a veteran and should know better.
you don't boo when your 2nd year pg dribbles the air out of the ball and your 2 rookies and 2 other 2nd year players can't get open during the 24 seconds. they already know they effed up. boo diop everytime he gets on the floor. he's earned it.
booing the young guys is just brutal and it's part of why talented guys don't want to play here. the fans here are horrible.

I'll go one step farther. Fans should never boo ANY of our own players (one exception: you boo them if they show a lack of effort).
Diop is a really good guy who always does as much as he can. It's not his fault that he was given such a big contract, or that the Bobcats took it over.
This reminds me of Kwame Brown, when he played in Washington and was booed by some of the team's fans. His answer was: "It's not my fault they used their first pick overall om me!".
