Brett Blizzard on training camp roster?
 
Does anyone know the status of Brett Blizzard? I saw that Kevin Garbagerlson got signed again, wow how pathetic is that. The guy does nothing all last year, comes into summer camp and makes boneheaded plays every game, and gets resigned. Unbelievable. And for those who don't know, Burleson is a old college buddy of young bickerstaff, which is how he got invited to play for the bobcats in the first place. We need a guy like Dell Curry to come in for the Bobcats to spark us and get us scoring, or help us knock down a 3 when we need one. Unlike Curry was for the Hornets, Blizzard can also play solid D and can handle the basketball. He'd be a great pickup. Thoughts?

Blizzard is a great guy. He lead UNC Wilmington to the NCAA tourney a couple of years. I hope he gets signed.

To clarify, by young Bickerstaff I mean John-Blair, Bernie's son, who happened to be in the news this week for getting a DWI. This whole Bobcats network is about buddies giving other buddies jobs, even if there is someone better qualified. Kevin Burleson is absolute garbage, and if he wasn't college pals with Bick Jr. he wouldn't be on the team, period. For that matter, I'm sure our GM can find some better assistant coaches than John-Blair Bickerstaff.

Blizzard gets slighted
 
It has come to my knowledge that the Bobcats will not sign Brett, and he is going back to Italy or Spain. I am not sure what the heck they are looking for, but he outperformed the guard they resigned. Just like everything else in the world "politics" plays a role in decisions being made. Hopefully he got some exposure, and someone else will give him a chance. I am almost as upset about the Bobcats resigning Kevin Garbagerlson as I am them not signing Blizzard. The guy had all year to prove anything, ANYTHING, and showed zero signs of promise all last year. Then he comes into summer camp and goes 2-of-10 from 3-point range, fouls jumpshooters from three point range, and gets outplayed in every dimension by Brett Blizzard. Yet they still sign him..... I hope MJ cleans house after this season.
