OK, so this isn't going to be a full fledged article, but I just wanna say, "How about them Bobcats!" The team was down by 19 to a streaking OKC team and potential league MVP candidate, Kevin Durant, and they came back to win by eight tonight going away.
This team is for real, this team has heart and they play hard. They are a team that I'm proud to be a fan of and if they continue playing this way.
I would not be surprised to see them not only make the playoffs for the first time, but to advance. The only question is whether they can win on the road.
The Bobcats are great at home and improving away from Time Warner Cable Arena, but their overall win/loss record is much much better in Charlotte than when they play out of town.
This team has done as much as or more than any other team to improve through fortuitous trades throughout the season and they are peaking at the right time.
They've also been playing particularly well since Michael Jordan announced his intended purchase of the team (approved and ratified today) and it seems his presence on the bench, alongside players who grew up watching and idolizing the best to ever play the game, has helped the team's performance.
This is a defensive minded team, this is a gritty team and this is a very very athletic team.
The Charlotte Bobcats have finally arrived on the NBA scene and, hopefully, they are here to stay.
