Who should the Charlotte Bobcats hire next? Somebody who will command respect when he enters the locker room for the first time.
I like Golden State assistant Mike Malone. The Bobcats need to pursue their top choices the way a college coach pursues a top recruit. This one has to be permanent. The next great coach is out there, and he has NBA experience. Charlotte has to find him and commit to him and sell him on the job.
I wrote two days ago that the Carolina Panthers should use their top pick on West Virginia receiver Tavon Austin.There potentially could be a flurry of trades, and Austin could be gone when the Panthers select. I've thought about what I wrote. With other obvious needs, should the Panthers really invest the 14th pick on Austin. Yes.
XXXYou see Stephen Curry Tuesday night? He scored 30 points, had 13 assists and five steals. Golden State shot 64.6% from the field, hit 56% of its threes and crushed Denver in Denver 131-117. The Showtime Warriors did this without their all-star, David Lee. Great work. Man, are they fun to watch.
