  1. Bobcats lose 23rd straight, fall to Knicks to set record for futility

    Apr 26, 2012, 11:43 PM EDT

    Knicks Bobcats Basketball

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst team in NBA history. Charlotte fell to the Knicks by 20 points, 104-84, on a night when the Knicks basically gave their best players a night off. On a night the Bobcats should have played with desperation, they were passive and just missed good looks. It was their 23rd…

  2. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…

  3. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  4. Brook Lopez rolls ankle, leaves arena on crutches

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:10 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Landry Fields

    Brook Lopez has been back just five games after foot surgery — and his impact on the Nets has been clear. The Nets are 3-2 in those games including wins over New York and Dallas, with Lopez averaging 19.2 points per game. But now the Nets may be without him again for a stretch. Lopez…

  5. Video: DeSagana Diop makes everyone who watches this video worse at free throws

    Jan 30, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    DeSagana Diop

    I’d say this is the worst free throw attempt you’ll see today. but it’s maybe the worst one you’ll ever see. Ladies and gentlemen, DeSagana Diop.

    Steve Kerr

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Steve Kerr absolutely rips Dan Gilbert. And he’s right. Andre Iguodala is impressing at Sixers camp. Shawn Kemp award contestant: DeSagana Diop said that he is 25 lbs overweight. The Lakers and Knicks lead…

  7. New movie “Elevate” shows hope hoops provides in Africa

    Dikembe Mutombo Africa

    There have been eight players out of Senegal that have made it to the NBA, the most notable of which is Bobcats center DeSagana Diop. But the path out of there is hard — they learn the game on a dirt court at the SEEDS academy. If they catch a coach’s eye and can get…

  8. DeSagana Diop’s burdensome contract gets a bit heavier

    Jan 7, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeSagana Diop

    DeSagana Diop is over two years removed from being a productive NBA player, and based on Diop’s recovery timeline for his recent surgery on his Achilles’ tendon, it could be some time before Diop even has a shot at NBA relevance again. According to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, Diop’s surgery could put him…

    Jan 3, 2011, 4:41 PM EDT

    Diop

    Charlotte center DeSagana Diop is out for the rest of the season after an MRI confirmed he ruptured his Achilles tendon Friday night against the Warriors. Diop and Kwame Brown have been the primary backups for Nazr Mohammed. While the loss of Diop the player hurts the Bobcats some, the bigger blow could be on…

    Wednesday night, DeSagana Diop’s elbow accidentally caught Anderson Varejao’s face during the Bobcats win over Cleveland. After the game Varejao’s face swelled and doctors have determined the shot broke Varejao’s cheekbone. The Brazilian will be out at least Saturday’s Cavaliers game against the Bulls, reports Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal (via twitter). Varejao’s…

  11. Game of the Night: For one night at least, the Bobcats were fun

    Dec 28, 2010, 3:34 AM EDT

    Shaun Livingston, DeSagana Diop, Derrick Brown, Paul Silas

    There may be no coach harder on point guards than Larry Brown. Monday night D.J. Augustin was freed from that yoke — Brown was out and Paul Silas was in. It seemed to make Augustin a new player — one who attacked, drained jumpers, scored 27 points and had no turnovers. Augustin was having fun,…

    Right now Baron Davis is seen in Los Angeles as the anchor on the Clippers rebuilding plans, as such they have been looking for someone to take his contract off their hands. That could be the recently shaken up Bobcats — who should be trying to rebuild themselves — according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.…

  13. Kwame Brown’s season could begin tonight

    Nov 15, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    You know times are tough when Kwame Brown’s return from injury qualifies as some kind of great hope. The Bobcats have started the season 3-7. Their defense, which was tops in the league last season, has fallen to 14th, while their offense remains as miserable as ever. The season is young, but it’s hard to…

  14. Tyson Chandler to see a man about a foot

    Feb 26, 2010, 12:41 AM EDT

    By the end of the 2008 playoffs, Tyson Chandler had firmly cemented himself as a sidekick to Chris Paul and one of the premier defensive centers in the league. He was young, athletic, an established part of a growing core on a hot young team, and making a boat load of money. Then everything collapsed.…

  15. Mark Cuban doesn't think Josh Howard was hungover, and he would know

    Feb 22, 2010, 11:28 PM EDT

    Josh Howard was pretty unhappy when rumors of him being hungover for a game he was supposed to have missed with a stomach illness came out. He flat out denied it and tonight, his former owner backed him up, in his own entertaining way. The Dallas Morning News transcribed an interview Cuban did with the…
