    Default Bobcats Wednesday

    Was just watching NBA Gameday this morning and Ramon Sessions commented how the "Raptors are coming in Wednesday" and it is a game they "should get". Can someone please find a way to get this onto the Raptors chalk board before the game. Have we fallen so low that teams like the Bobcats look at the Raptors as a winnable game?

    Charlotte thinks Toronto is winnable. Toronto thinks Charlotte is winnable. Washington thinks both Charlotte and Toronto are winnable.

    Its been this way for years now.

    Toronto fell this low 4 or 5 years ago. This isn't a recent change.

    Mike Dunlap has affected a change in culture in Charlotte. Whether it holds up or not is another story.

    They've been losing for a long time!

    beware the Bobcats!

    They are playing much better this year. MKG does a little of everything pretty well. Sessions is balling and living at the line. Kemba is doing his thing, Haywood has shored up their front line reasonably well as has BBs development and that idiot Tyrus Thomas is out (good thing?). They are missing GHen and Ben Gordon so wing scoring may be harder to come by. They are one game over .500 and are 4-0 in close games.

    Raps need to bring it. These Cats aren't last years sad sack of a team.

    Why wouldn't Charlotte feel that way?

    They beat Toronto 2 of 3 times last year.

    They are playing decent ball this year and are a game over .500 with wins over IND, DAL, WSH, MIN, and MIL.

    They're 5-4 and currently the 6th best team in the East. Why wouldn't they think they're better than us? We're playing them on the second night of a back-to-back too.

    Plus they have Kemba Walker.

    Jose probably will have such a hard time defending Kemba, dude's ultra quick, likes penetrating and as we know Jose isn't the fastest guy in the league and had problems against this type of guys. Plus andrea has to show some life on O because if Bismack is patroling th paint with his shotblocking, it will be a lot more difficult to score

    I think we gonna win this one. Derozan will score 20+ points, same with Bargnani. Demar sucks when playing against superstars (like Pierce, Durant) trying to force his shots, but he looks more confident with teams with no superstar wing players like Orlando, Utah or Dallas.

    i dunno, i think they'll use MKG to slow him down. the team's only really gone as far as demar took them and when he gets taken out the game the team bloooooows.

    A) As a professional basketball player, you should be thinking every game is gettable.

    B) even if you dont think that, not hinting as much to the media, is social suicide.

    +1. You wont hear any player saying that a game against Miami or OKC is a "lay down and die" type game.

    But i think the Raps have a good chance to beat them.

    Ramon Sessions is in for a big surprise. I hope Kyle Lowry comes back so we can show them how good we really are.

    Haha I hope so. I have to admit, whenever the Raptors play there is a little part of me that is hoping Kyle Lowry miraculously suits up and dominates

    I always thought Tuesdays were for Tag Teams.
