Season Tip-Off, Bobcats Notes

The NBA season tips off tonight, with TNT airing a double-header of Portland/San Antonio and L.A. Lakers/Houston.

The Bobcats' season doesn't begin until Friday, of course, when the Bobcats play the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA this season. Hopefully the game will allow the Bobcats to start the season with a W and gain some confidence in the process.

Rick Bonnell is reporting that Othella Harrington has been medically cleared to practice. There's no clear timetable for his return to the Bobcats lineup, but this is an encouraging step. Although Othella was a sub-par player last season, his injured knee could have been a contributing factor. Hopefully his off-season surgery will propel him to unchartered levels of productivity.

I demand that the Bobcats re-sign Emeka Okafor before the November 1 deadline. Emeka is a franchise player, one of the elite big men in the NBA. He is the future of the Bobcats, and he must be locked down immediately. Emeka deserves to receive quite the "treat" on Halloween.

Something I'll be checking in the box scores tomorrow: how did the Jason Richardson-less Golden State Warriors fare? Also, with the Warriors apparently opting not to re-sign Andris Biedrins, I am officially ready to start pounding the "sign Biedrins" drums. We need a center, and he's a young prototype. The Bobcats' management should have their scouts focusing on Biedrins all season long.

"The Bucks are going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA this season."

I strongly disagree with you on this one. And if you really know basketball you would know that the Bucks were bad last year because they lost so many people to injury including all 5 starters being out for an extended period of time.

The Bucks are going to contend for a playoff spot with players like Michael Redd, Desmond Mason, Mo Williams, Charlie Villanueva, Andrew Bogut, Bobby Simmons, Charlie Bell, and Yi Jianlian (if he can contribute right away).

Thanks for your comment, though I'm not sure "if you really knew basketball" was a productive addition to it. For the record, Michael Redd, Ruben Patterson, Mo Williams, Charlie Bell, and Andrew Bogut all played 2,000 minutes last season.

I'm happy to take a "wait and see" approach on this one, but I'd be worried if I was relying heavily on Desmond Mason.

I'll keep an eye on the Bucks and provide a mid-season update.

Today is the deadline to give Okafor his extension. I can't believe we haven't gotten it done yet. Both he and management have talked pretty confidently about getting it done...I'm a little worried we're not willing to give him the money he wants and that's why it's being held up.

If we screw this up and don't give him an extension we could lose him after the season and we can't afford to let that happen!

Ok, maybe my words were a little too harsh, but to say that they are going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA seems extreme too.

Yea they had players with 2,000 mintues, but the # of games is what really matters.

Michael Redd played only 53, Villanueva 39, Bogut 66, Simmons 75, Williams 68. This team has a lot of talent (esp. adding Mason & Yi) and if they stay healthy they will make noise.

Good defense by the Charlotte Bobcats drama boys, if only we could patch up the difference, this will be a Charlotte good season. They are running, switching in defense, rebounding see those efforts. We don't have yet the Bobcats team down.

I which I could see some Bobcats games live. I was looking for tickets all the good seats on ticketmaster were taken I had to check broker. And man you don’t want to do that especially for the Charlotte Bobcats. Thanks god there sites like Ticketwood which work as comparators here is the site
