Default Paul Silas Named Interim

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/201...s-interim.html

Kind of surprised the FO went outside of the bench for this one...seems like we're going to go 0-20 until the team gets Silas' system down. That being said, Silas was good with the Hornets.

Also noted: Bonnell posted a blog around 5pm saying Silas hadn't been contacted yet...90 minutes later, Silas was named coach. Bonnell-opposite curse strikes again!!!!

With such a "good " ending to last season, who would of thought our team would be un raveling right now . Good thing the season is young and theres still a little bit of time left to build. Hopefully Silas can do big things and get us to at least .500. Oh well, anybody going to the heat game the 3rd? I am takin out a lot of money to get up close to lbj and wade too

Bobcats Season Ticket Holder,
I wanted to make sure that as a Season Ticket Holder you were the first to know that Head Coach Larry Brown will be stepping down effective immediately. Coach Brown and I agreed that at this time a change was necessary.
I want to thank Larry for everything he has done for our team. He has played a key role in this organization's development, including coaching us to our first playoff appearance last season. I will always consider him part of the Bobcats family and Larry will continue to be a valuable advisor to me regarding the team.
I am sure you know that this was a very difficult decision. As I told you back in March, owning this team is my number one priority. I am focused on building a winning team that you can be proud of and I will continue to do whatever is necessary to make that happen. We will be making a coaching decision in the near future and I will communicate the details to you as soon as they are available.
Thank you for your continued support.

Michael Jordan

Must have been sent before they got the call back from Silas.

Seems as though the whole staff "chose to step down."

Ok, everyone got fired, "stepping down" is just LeBronning it so it doesn't seem to sting as bad. I thought we had some good assistants - Hanners, Capel, etc. So are we just going to go round up some retired people? Maybe Sam Vincent, Mike Brown, and Eddie Jordan would be available.

There are multiple reports (seen 2) that says Charles Oakley is going to join Silas' coaching staff.

Yeah Oakley is gonna be the head assistant. I'm sure Silas has a pretty good idea of how he'll round out the staff.

Hows the team look and feel compared to when Brown was running the show ??

Does it seem the players are more loose and playing free style ?

Think any trades might occur while Silas is at the Helm before the trade deadline ?? ?

Rick Bonnell made a great analogy when referring to the difference Silas has made.

He said, after trudging through a hot humid rainforest, up to your knees in quicksand and crap, and you come to a huge mountain, Larry Brown would want you to study it, try to find paths around it, while Silas would say, "this will be a fun hike!"

It's pretty accurate. He's got the pedal to the metal on offense and it's really helping out.

I heard Silas on WFNZ yesterday. He said we basically need to win 6 out of every 10 games left to make the playoffs. That's a big task especially considering our schedule the next few weeks.

Then why is Gerald Wallace on the trading block?

Prior to the season starting , I felt , the Bobcats would make the playoffs again.... I believe they will still make it ... but Indy and Milwaukee I question their directions.
