    Aug 5, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Quincy Pondexter

    Gerald Henderson was giving the Bobcats a quality 15.5 points a game last season (second best on the team), but he knows next season the looks are going to be different for him and point guard Kemba Walker. Because Al Jefferson is there. Jefferson can score on the block and that should open up things…

  3. Sprained ankle to keep Taj Gibson out of Team USA mini-camp

    Jul 19, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    Chicago’s Taj Gibson’s blend of size and athleticism makes him an interesting fit for what Team USA likes to do — press on defense, create turnovers then get out and run. Play to your strengths, and with the USA that is the level and depth of athleticism. But a sprained ankle is going to keep…

  4. Kawhi Leonard to skip USA Basketball mini-camp; George Hill, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added to the roster

    Jul 16, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

  5. Report: Kemba Walker pitched Bobcats on, recruited Al Jefferson

    Jul 13, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    In 2011-12, the Bobcats could have won 12 more games – in a 66-game schedule, no less – without sacrificing any lottery positioning. The Magic out-tanked Charlotte last season, but both those teams were so far below the rest of the NBA, the Bobcats still could have won a couple more games without relinquishing any…

  6. Bobcats’ Mark Price working on Kidd-Gilchrist’s shot, Walker’s pick-and-roll

    Jul 12, 2013, 1:21 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Mark Price is one of those NBA players where the generation coming into the league now says, “What? Coach played 12 years in the league? Get out of here!” But Price did play a dozen years mostly because he was smart using the pick-and-roll, and because he had a sweet shooting stroke — a career…

  8. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  9. Report: Al Jefferson agrees to three-year deal with Bobcats

    Jul 4, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    Al Jefferson was reportedly looking for a four-year deal worth in the neighborhood of $15 million per season in free agency. He also was said to be interested in waiting for the Dwight Howard domino to fall before choosing his destination, in case a contender became interested in retaining his services. As it turned out,…

  10. Trey Burke ready to compete with new teammate point guards right now

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    NEW YORK – When Trey Burke committed to Michigan, the Wolverines still had Darius Morris. Though Morris’ NBA success as a Lakers second-round pick has been moderate at best, he was a star at Michigan. Morris left early for the NBA before Burke arrived in Ann Arbor, but Burke’s preparation for playing with Morris could…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: Give me your Point Guards

    Apr 16, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    I’m a sucker for point guards. The guys who can balance scoring and dishing; who can control the game’s flow like they do the ball in their hands. Tonight there were several worthy performances of making out list, including fantastic nights from Kevin Durant, Luis Scola, Gerald Henderson, and Greg Monroe. But, tonight, I’m going…

    Gerald Henderson, in his fourth year, is having his best season, and it’s good timing. This summer, he’ll be a free agent, likely a restricted one. Coming off his rookie-scale deal, Henderson has his first chance to secure a big medium contract. But he hinted he’s not thinking about only money. Henderson, via Rick Bonnell…

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The team with the best record in the NBA was taking on the team with the worst record in the NBA, how did you think this was going to end? Even with Dwyane Wade out resting a sore knee, the Heat stuck to their script — fell behind by double digits early (19-8), cranked up…

    Jan 26, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Henderson_Gerald

    This was a pretty insane sequence, and an appropriate one to result in the Bobcats snapping their 16-game home losing streak, which was just two shy of the NBA record held by the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks. The Bobcats almost turned it over on this series more than once, but ultimately Kemba Walker chased down the…
