Playoff Pressure Getting to the Bobcats

Were you expecting anything different?: “For the first time collectively, the Charlotte Bobcats are playing for actual stakes – the last spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Half of the eight-man rotation hasn’t done this before. They’re not managing it well, as losses to Minnesota, Indiana and Washington demonstrate. And time is running out with 11 games left in the season. ‘There’s definitely something to that,’ shooting guard Raja Bell said at practice Thursday. ‘A playoff race is a different animal. Basically we’re in playoffs right now (as far as the importance of each game) and that’s a different level of pressure. I’ve been pressing, not playing as well as I normally do, and I’m sure that’s in part’ about the stakes.”

    thanks to Bob Johnson and his secret beastality relations with horses, we have a road trip! This will be hard, but it could be harder (THATS WHAT SHE SAID!!)

    plus Raymond Felton had back spasms, Raja Bell has a hurt arm, Gerald Wallace is a walking injury, Emeka went to Oz singing ‘if i only had a dunk on somebody’ only to be told by the wizard himself that he is a pu$$y and can only dunk on scrubs and Chris Bosh, DJ needs more playtime and Larry Brown is starting to show his true colors, Boris Diaw is good really really good, and DESEGNA DIOP AIR BALLS FREE THROWS AND LAYUPS, which is amazing.

    btw Raja hurt his arm in a undertimend way, but it most likely was from strangling Kobe or beating his meat

    Put Juwan Howard on the floor, where his intangibles, wisdom, and savvy will….likely lose them another game.
    JUST SIGN OAKLEY to kick some ass!! That dude’s like tiger balm; he works on everything.

    Yeah we’d really appreciate if you guys made it into the 8th seed. Maybe we can see what it feels like to be on the right side of a sweep this time.

    BET neglected to mention Diaw. But he showed up last night and worked ‘em after Pimp G Wallace was carrying them through several games in a row, even after an injury scare, while Felton did his disapearo act. And yeah what the heck happened to Diop. He used to be dope. Or at least doper than Dampier who is Dopey of the 7 dwarves, so it wasn’t a fair comparison to the rest of the league, just better by association to his casting shadow team Starter. Nazr Mohammed was also blowing up statlines when it was all said and done-with still more games to be played last year but that couldn’t carry over into this season for what reason, coach Brown? Speaking of him, he probably has vacation plans booked so he’s using his skills to lose games at the exact time he’s able to.
