Oh, I thought you fixed something in my post. Sorry. I am not trying to be the grammar police, but I have been messing up so much in my essays so I thought that I could reinforce good habits while writing anything else.
If Larry could handle AI he'll have no problem with SJax. I'm ecstatic. Any offensive shot in the arm I'll take right now. And of course LB and MJ are not through. Definitely another big trade will come down before the deadline.
Tonights game in Orlando is gonna be hard to watch. Do we start Flip at the 2?
Does everyone in here really think that this was a good trade for the Bobcats? It definitely makes them better, but realistically they are still clearly a lottery team only now they will win more games and get (another) ****ty pick in the low teens.
The trade also takes away all of the cap flexibility that Charlotte had been accumulating (especially evident in the Okefor for Chandler trade) for 2011 and possibly 2012. Now the Bobcats will not have enough money to get any sort legit free agent after next year like they were in position to do before the trade.
This is all without mentioning that S Jax is probably not happy to be on the Bobcats now, who are far from the contender that he was looking to join, and the Bobcat's offense is the slowest in the league, a far cry from the Warrior's fast break that Jackson thrived in last year. His stats will drop and I wouldn't be surprised if he threw a fit at some point and caused some trouble.
So, basically this trade locks the Bobcats into lottery mediocrity without sinking far enough to get a stud in the early lottery, takes away all of their cap flexibility, and gives them a shaky 2nd option who is probably really mad at where he is right now.
