Why are people calling it a season after last night? We didn't lose any ground. Sure, we had everything right in front of us last night and we couldn't capitalize, but there's still a month left, a lot can happen.

Who's writing us off already? Discouraged after last night's game definitely. But you're right there's still about a dozen games left.

We'll win the first game and lose by 40 on the second.

I went last night, and I did see a lot of Hispanics there...so it must have worked somewhat?

I know we laid a massive egg, and I sat there and listened to the crowd give a big rousing "boo" to the team in the 3rd quarter. Thing is, I had GREAT seats...5 rows behind the bench...and I saw the fatigue and pain in their faces. They knew what this game meant and I'm sure they wanted it worse than we did. This is what happens however when you play the starters so many minutes over such a long stretch like we've done; they just didn't have it to give.

They've given a valiant effort and they still might possibly get into the playoffs. Fans do need to realize that regardless of whether they get in or not this 2nd half of the season was a MAJOR overachievement as they have not had a good enough bench to rest the starters enough to finish it out.

After a 2 1/2 hour ride alone to dwell on it I still have a lot of pride in what these guys have done and accomplished. If we come up short then so be it...next year will be even better.

The Pacers were playing the 2nd of 2 back to back games on the road and they didn't phone this one in. These guys are well paid professionals. It's inexcusable.

Since March 13th that was their 4th game...it was our 6th. The average minutes of our starters in the first five games (in 8 nights):

Crash - 41.2 minutes (42 vs. Toronto)
Felton - 35.4 minutes (42 vs. Toronto)
Raja - 37.2 minutes (40 vs. Toronto)
Boris - 34.8 minutes (38 vs. Toronto)

In that stretch Crash almost tore his knee off, Felton had back spasms and Raja couldn't lift his arm over his head. Mek also had flu like symptoms on Friday.

Jack was also playing wayyyy above his head because of his argument with TJ the night before (he got sent to the lockerroom).

Sure they're professionals...but they're also human.

Ah ok...I'm not in the Charlotte area (obviously). I could have sworn I read somewhere that the local radio station they used was going Hispanic.

http://radiotime.com/station/s_21491/La_Raza_1061.aspx

That's the group that was out front on Saturday.

They are also listed under "Charlotte Bobcats' Radio Stations".

I rarely listen to the station. I thought I heard at one point too that they were switching. If that's the case I think the Bobcats would need to look into having a new flagship station.....mainly because the hispanic market is not their primary demographic.
