I will report back. I'm going down with other season ticket holders and included in the deal is a Q & A with Fred Whitfield. What should I ask him?

As of now I believe our head coach is testing his bench and figuring out who to cut after the preseason. And also to make DJ adjust to a starter. With Livingston and Kwame gonna miss the most of preseason I guarantee DJ and Diop will take those playing time.

LB is squeezing juice out of his bench right now, and his bench is quite anhydrous @.@.

Yeah. It was a fun trip. The team bussed us down to Columbia and gave us free food and booze in the Frank McGuire club. The Q & A with Whitfield and Huggins was friendly but didn't really reveal anything. Both just toed the company line that they'll "do what it takes to improve the team" and "any player can be traded."

The game was fun and got me excited for the season. My observations:

1. Gana Diop has dropped a bunch of weight and actually looks agile. He had 6 blocks.
2. Boris Diaw had a dunk in the 1st quarter and played a solid game. Tyrus Thomas spelled him seemlessly and made some spectacular slashes to the basket.
3. DJ looked fairly comfortable running plays with the starters and had a good game. I like what I saw of Collins but you can tell there's gonna be a learning curve with him.
4. Jack and Crash just kind of went through the motions and didn't play a whole lot, which is what you would expect in a preseason game.
5. Gerald Henderson was terrible. He checked in mid-way in the 1st and went 0-3 with 3 fouls in about 2 minutes. Larry sat him back on the bench and then walked over and had a heated discussion with him face-to-face. I think if anyone is on the trading block it's him.
6. Kwame Brown was in street clothes and looked like he could barely walk. On the plus side, our other Brown, Derrick, looked great and had 2 monster dunks.

Overall it was a fun and exciting preseason match.

We beat the Heat in Miami. Granted they were without D-Wade but we were without Gerald Wallace.

Derrick Brown.

I'm no longer worried about the new season. I saw confidence and purpose on the floor as well as good ball movement and some sweet passing. Granted the turnover problem reared its head and we aren't as good with offensive rebounding as we should be but I was so jazzed to see how DJ and Nazr played. And Gana's forcefulness and TT and of course Derrick Brown.
Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And it's SO nice to see MC back!

Yeah I have to echo OWL's comments, esp. after last night. It seems the team is coming together, and guys we all thought were worthless (Gana) are looking like they'll be able to contribute.

UPS (Brown) is making an impact every second he's on the floor. He's going to be huge for us on the 2nd unit.

Can't wait for the games that count to get started.

And we win again. Solid play from Jack and Tyrus. I was at the game for the 1st half. 14,000 middle shcoolers sure can get loud.

Hawks @ Cats going on now. Here's a link to the box scores:
http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/boxscore...d=201 0102230

End of 1st quarter: Cats 26 and Hawks 24
We gave away a big lead. :

Derrick Brown: 5 points in one minute of play.
Diop is doing well. 8 minutes of play and he has 1 TO, 1 PF and 1 Point.

Now things are getting exciting. This will be a great season for us. The Hawks, on the other hand--they ought to forget about the season.

Halftime: Cats 57 and Hawks 34
End of 3rd Q: Cats 87 Hawks 49

Final score: Cats 99 and Hawks 66. We finish the pre-season at .500. Could have been much worse.

Radio Avery signing off.
