Dear Mr. BJ Mullens,

First thing you need to do once this season is over, is resign with the Bobcats (the team that gave you a chance to shine) for a decent price. Then, spend the entire summer with Hakeem Olajuwon, working on your post game and defensive approach.

If you do that, you can be unstoppable. You are already a better defensive and rebounder than guys such as: Lamarcus Aldrige and Dirk Nowitzki. We all know you can score, but you need to work on your offensive balance to increase your options and play like a true 7-footer.

At age 23, you still have plenty of time to be one of the best big men in the NBA as soon as the next two season.

Also, please change the picture of you that appears in the NBA roster.

Sincerely,

A true Bobcats Fan and STH.

kemba needs to go with him to go see olajuwon and spend his summer throwing entry passes. biyombo should go too.

Mullens needs to work on post position more than anything. Could be more strength related, but he would be unstoppable if he could find a way to do this.

Typed all this and then some yesterday and don't know what happened. Anyway I have been very discouraged not posted comments just nothing to much to say positive. However Great win against Boston, mainly Garnett(Punk)celebrating too early and calling our guys names while he is doing it. Then Mullens trying to tell Garnett good game F!!! That!
Something I saw with Biz was very encouraging that I have not seen before maybe you guys have recently and I watch every game, but not seen it before. Outside of Biyombo's foul shooting which is a 110% better, I saw Biyombo on 2 of those running hooks "break his wrist"/flick his wrist letting the ball roll up to his fingertips and both hooks even the miss looked good. Usually its like he throws it at the rim. I had been discouraged with him, but that changes alot if he can start making that shot consistently. Also that short jumper looked good. We'll see, I am newly encouraged!

I am a cats fan but this really frustrating. First I have to say cho is the most overrated gm on the nba. He tried to take credit for okc but look at his draft history here. Bismack and kid gilchrist are his pick. Not impressed at all. You also have Higgins who god knows what he is doing. They seem to be in desperation mode about to do something stupid to try to cover up their incompetence Mj has too much pride to leave ownership as this big of a failure but he has to bring in better people to run his team. How much longer is he going to let these clowns run this team into the ground?

You're judging cho based on a 19 and 20 year old. You should wait until they are 24 and 25 to grade him on those picks.

I was slow to buy in on his methods and decision making both in signings and drafting, but i'm starting to think he's legit. He's no presti, morey, or buford YET......but he's also no kahn or higgins.

I mean he's got his fingerprint on 6 of our 7 "keepers" 26 and under. Plus we're adding another top 5 pick and maybe an additional 1st as well this june. There's a ton of promise to what cho is building. It's going to be good at worst, but has the potential to be great.

Mj even hiring cho and letting him rebuild shows improvement on his end.

Wow Charlottean, you actually made sense in that last post about Cho. Now all you have to do is realize that Henderson is bench material at best.

haha henderson's as solid as his dad was. his dad won.....3 championships?

he's a solid dependable scorer/defender. he's not elite. but he's solid. and he fits into everything that we're doing here. he's an ideal 3rd or 4th scoring option and that's all we need him to be. just hope they can keep him for a good price. he's right around 15th statistically for shooting guards in the nba and he's 25. what's not to like?

plus he makes posters on the regular.

Thank you Ben for calling Dunlap out.He does need to " Humble himself " ;every problem is the players fault not the terrible coaching job he has been doing. And for saying the team is improving is a joke.He stans the entire game like an overseer in the cotton fields to make himself look important.He is the worse coach in the NBA coaching a bad team. He must go , he has lost this team.
