Charlotte Bobcats Franchise, were they robbed of Anthony Davis

Personally don't put much stock in the first overall pick being the best guy out there. If you look at the stats the second or third guy picked has a better career usually! I want to hear what you think.

Adios Amgos! Cats win

The Bobcats won the 35th game of the season and then a surprise announcement was made by David Stern.

David Stern
As NBA commissioner I regret to inform you that the NBA is ceasing operations until further notice due to the combination of Federal and State taxes being so high that not one team can afford to pay their taxes and their players. Rather than going into a lockout over players' wages not being paid, the NBA owners have voted 29-1 to disband the National Basketball association. There are several teams that might try to form a league of their own, but at this time that will be doubtful. You should know that the only team that did not vote for disbandment was Michael Jordan.

I wish everyone the best and hope you can find other employment.


After that crazy news Michael Jordan came out with this announcement.


Jordan
While I am sorry to see the end of the NBA I must say that I also have news that makes me glad for a possible fresh start.
Many of have wondered what happened to this organization for there to be the need of such a great cleaning. Here is what happened.

Manfred Nissley was organizing the files in the file room one night and ran across a piece of paper that seemed out of place. He discovered that this piece of paper was an e-mail that had been printed out. He read this e-mail to see where it should be classified. Here is what he reported to me at 3 am that very morning.

"Dear Justin Timber O'Fritzlaker
I am pleased to report that the entire team is on board with your suggestion. All contracted players and I accept your special terms for the team to throw a certain number of games in order to ensure the Bobcats lose the said amount of games for the season.
Rich Cho"


We decided to not fire Paul Silas at that time due to financial troubles but we fired everyone else and traded all of the players who had decided to throw games. Thus the craziness of Manfred Nissley


*************************

Hey guys, it is I, Manfred Nissley, your friendly undertaker

You could say this my way of laying to rest something that I have greatly enjoyed. Time restraints and lack of outside activity on the page have created an impossibility of me continuing. If there had been even 10 comments at this point, I might have tried to make it work.

Be good folks! Be sure you are right with Jesus!

******************************************************************* ******************************************************************
The Bobcats went into Indiana and the Pacers walked all over them!

1st quarter
The Bobcats opened the game on a 9-3 run in the first 5:26 of the game. The Pacers then turned the tables and took a 14-11 into the second quarter after Chandler picked up his second foul.

2nd quarter
The Pacers continued their run into the second quarter going up 26-16 3:54 to go in the quarter. Neither team could make a serious run from the rest of the quarter. The Bobcats did cut the lead to 28-35 going into the 3rd.

3rd quarter
The Cats cut the lead to 31-35 40 seconds into the quarter before the Pacers went on an 11-0 run to jump out to a 46-31 lead with 4:06 left in the quarter. With one minute to go the Cats were down by 20! The Cats cut that lead to a 44-60 going into the fourth.

4th quarter
The Bobcats tried to make a comeback by double teaming the Pacers in the fourth quarter. This worked somewhat as the Cats cut the lead to 61-70 with 2 minutes left. The surge was all for naught as the Pacers held off the Cats 75-64. The Cats did foul down the stretch and still could not make a serious run despite Diaw missing 3 free throws.

Odd stat: Former Pacer center Roy Hibbert did not make his presence known in this game. The coach is livid with him and might bench him next game.

Two new guys help Cats defeat Hawks!

<--------------------------------------------------See previous posts

******************************************************************* ******************************************************************
The Bobcats win a close game and the new guy gets the player of the game honors.

1st quarter
The Bobcats went on a 7-0 lead part way through the quarter to take a 13-6 lead with 2:26 left. The Hawks then went on an 11-2 run to take a 17-15 lead despite Josh Smith picking up his 2nd foul with a minute to go in the quarter.

2nd quarter
The Hawks opened up the quarter by taking a four point lead. The Cats roared back to tie the game and eventually led the game 29-27 with 2:49 left in the quarter. The Cats held a 34-31 lead at the end of the quarter.

3rd quarter
Neither team could make a significant run in the quarter. Josh Smith picked up his forth foul and despite this the Hawks took a 44-43 lead with 1:15 left in the quarter. The Bobcats finished the quarter on a 6-2 run to take a 49-46 lead into the fourth quarter.

4th quarter
The Bobcats opened the fourth quarter with a 4-0 run to take a 53-46 lead with 6 minutes left. The Cats held a 59-52 lead with 2:41 after which the Hawks went on a 6-0 run to get within 1 point at 59-58. With 28 seconds left the Bobcats led 61-60 and the Hawks turned to fouling the Bobcats. The Cat player hit both free throws and gave the Cats a 63-60 lead with 24.7 seconds left. The Cats were able to keep the Hawks from scoring on their trip down the floor. The Bobcats pushed ball up the floor and the Hawks tried to foul the Cats on the floor. A certain Bobcat, Kemba Walker, was smart because just as the Hawk was about to wrap his talons around the Cat, the Cat hoisted up a three. He missed the shot but got three free throws! With 1.9 seconds left the Hawks were down 60-66 and they called timeout. On the inbounds pass a certain Hawk, Joe Johnson, was left wide open and he nailed the only Hawk three! Thankfully it did not matter much as the Cats escaped the clutches of the Hawks and won 66-63.

Odd Stat: Jamario Moon scored 6 points in only 4 minutes!

Slumping Cats lose to Celtics and then make a big trade.

<--------------------------------------------------See previous posts
                  See how to become a draftee for the 2013 draft, rosters, player cards, stats, trades, etc------------------>

******************************************************************* ******************************************************************

The Bobcats went into Boston and despite making a good game of it still lost.

1st quarter
The Celtics raced out to a 11-2 lead with 2:30 left in the first quarter. The Bobcats then went on a 11-6 run to close the gap to 13-17 heading into the second quarter.

2nd quarter
The Bobcats continued their run and after going on a 11-4 run to start the second quarter the Bobcats held a 24-21 lead with 4:06 lead. The Celtics then went on a 10-2 run to take a 31-26 lead with 1:49 left in the quarter. The Bobcats finished the quarter on a 6-0 run to take a 32-31 lead going into halftime after drawing a second charging foul on Paul Pierce (his third in the first half).

3rd quarter
The Bobcats held a 38-37 lead with 4:10 left in the third after Pierce picked up his fourth foul! The Celtics got a little ticked off at the refs and took it out on the bobcats by going on a 9-3 run to take a 46-41 lead with 50 seconds left in the quarter. The Cats cut that lead to 46-48 by the end of the third quarter.

4th quarter
The Celtics held a 51-46 lead when Pierce picked up his fifth foul with 4:55 left in the game! Unfortunately the Cats were not able to take advantage of his absence. The Celtics were able to take a 56-48 lead with 4:13 left. The Bobcats made a run and cut the lead to 55-56 with 2:42 left. With 43 seconds left the Celtics held a 62-47 lead. The Bobcats tried to hoist up a three that missed, thankfully one of the bobcats was able to put in driving layup with 10 seconds left. It didn't matter as the Bobcats could not force a turnover and lost 66-62.

Odd Stat:  Eric Gordon continued his horrible shooting, as a result he got traded!

1AM 1/6/2012 ESPN-TV SportsCenter Announcer 1 - Jack
Hi guys, it's me again

SportsCenter Announcer 2: And it is I, Allen Iverson. What have you got for us Jack?

Jack
Manfred Nissley is at it again!

AI
What did he do this time?

Jack
He landed Monte Ellis!

AI
What did the Warriors get?

Jack
The received Eric Gordon, Dahntay Jones, and the Bobcats first round pick in 2013.

AI
Interesting trade. Jones is old and the 2013 Cats pick could go either way depending on how the Cats do next year and they might even get a steal in the draft! Furthermore they get Gordon. Gordon could become really good, but at this point the scouts say he has limited upside. From the Bobcats perspective they did not need that draft pick and it was chump change for them.

Jack
Thank you for the excellent analysis! I do have another question. What do you think of the Bobcats signing Jamario Moon?

AI
That is an interesting signing. With Jones leaving the Cats needed a decent veteran and they got that with Moon. He still has some hops which will make him a favorite with the home crowd. There are rumors that he wasn't allowed to show his hops with his former teams and that Bobcats are telling him to jump for the moon.

Jack
Thank you Allen! You provide so much more than either of my other co-hosts!

Slumping 22-8 Cats lose to 9-18 Cavs

The Bobcats went to Cleveland and got destroyed by the upstart Cavs and the young phenom Kyrie Irving.

1st quarter
The Cats opened the quarter on a 4-0 run. The Cats came back and with 4:28 left in the quarter led 8-6. The Cavs then went on an 11-3 run to take a 17-11 lead with 32.4 seconds left in the quarter. The Cats closed within two with 6 seconds left, but the Cavs extended their lead to 21-17, 2 seconds later.

2nd quarter
12 seconds into the second quarter Chandler picked up his third foul and was held out the rest of the quarter and the Cavs extended their lead to 22-17. The Cats cut the lead to 2 at 27-25 with 3:58 left in the quarter. The Cavs then went on a 7-1 run to take a 34-26 lead with 2:23 left in the quarter. The Cats then made a 7-0 run to cut the lead to 34-33. Neither team could create a run for the rest of the quarter and the Cavs held a 37-36 lead going into halftime.

3rd quarter
The Cats opened up the 3rd quarter by taking a 38-37 lead. The Cavs retaliated by taking a 44-38 lead while causing Chandler to pick up his fourth foul. The Cats cut that lead to 44-42 before the Cavs went on a 5-0 run before the Cats went on a 6-2 run to cut the lead to a 51-48 with 1:41 left in the quarter. Unfortunately Kemba picked up his fourth foul and stymied the Cats comeback. The Cavs extended their lead to 54-50 heading into the fourth.

4th quarter
The Cavs extended their lead to 59-52 before the Cats made a serious run to tie the game at 61 with 3:24 left in the game. But that was the best the Cats could do as Kevin Love picked up his 5th foul. This allowed the Cavs to go on a 12-3 run to take a 73-64 lead from which the Cavs could not recover! The Cas did cut the lead to 73-69. Unfortunately the final nails in the coffin included Kemba and Chandler picking up their 5th fouls.

Odd Stat: Eric Gordon has gone ice cold after going 0-6 from the three point line and is now on the trading block. What I am considering is trading him for another starting big man that can run the floor, (ie Joakim Noah) and moving Love to the SF position and Chandler to the SG position.

Hey! An Update! Heat survive in Charlotte

 <--------------------------------------------------See previous posts
                  See how to become a draftee for the 2013 draft, rosters, player cards, stats, trades, etc------------------>

******************************************************************* ******************************************************************

The 16-11 Heat came to Charlotte and took on the 21-7 Cats. The Cats made a game of it this time and did not allow the Heat to get out to a huge lead.

1st quarter
The Heat opened the game on a 6-0 run before the Cats went on a 15-5 run to take a 15-11 lead after Wade picked up his second foul with 1:54 left in the quarter. The Heat came right back and tied the game with 50 seconds left at 15. The Cats finished the quarter up 19-18.

2nd quarter
The Heat opened up the second quarter on a 10-3 to take a 28-22 lead. The Bobcats cut the lead to 28-26 with 1:31 left in the quarter after Lebron and Wade picked up their third fouls. The quarter ended with the Heat leading 32-30.

3rd quarter
The Cats tied the game at 40 with 2:54 left and then the Heat went on a 7-0 run to take a 47-40 lead. The cats then went on an 11-2 run of their own to take a 51-49 into the fourth. During that run the Lebron and Wade picked up their 4th fouls!

4th quarter
The Heat opened the fourth quarter on a 12-4 run to take a 61-55 lead. The Cats cut that lead to 63-62 with 2:36 left. The Heat then went on a 7-0 run to take a 70-62 lead with 44 seconds left. Suddenly the Cats found their range from outside. The Cats started to enact their "lets foul, they might miss, and then shoot a three." This plan worked and the Cats hit 4 straight threes after the Heat hit their free throws. Wit 1.3 seconds left the cats were down by 2 points with the Heat on the free-throw line. Amazingly the Heat player missed the second free-throw! The Cats got the rebound and called timeout. With less than a second left the Cats were trying to inbound the ball to a three point shooter. Due to the HEat defense this did not happen. The Cats inbounded the ball to guy that was too close to the basket. He threw up a shot while trying to get fouled at the same time. It was to no avail. The Hat won 77-74.

Odd stat: The Cats missed 42% of their free throws. Just three makes would have changed the game completely!

Hornets swarm into Charlotte. Those stingers hurt!

<--------------------------------------------------See previous posts
                  See how to become a draftee for the 2013 draft, rosters, player cards, stats, trades, etc----------------------------------->


The 7-17 Hornets swarmed into Charlotte looking to improve their hive's record against enemies. They finally beat their eighth foe.


1st quarter
The Hornets opened the game on a 4-0 run before the Cats tied the game at 5 with 5:24 left while on a run that would give them a 10-5 lead with 4:30 left. The Hornets retook the lead at 11-10 with 3:29 left. The Cats never led for the rest of the game. The rest of the quarter was back and forth as the Cats tied the game several times but the Hornets held an 18-16 lead going into the 2nd quarter.


2nd quarter
The Hornets opened the 2nd quarter on an 11-3 run to take a 29-19 lead with 4 minutes to go. It looked like the Bobcats had received enough punishment but they decided to make a game of it again. The Cats went on a 14-5 to cut the lead to within 1 point with 53 seconds left in the quarter. The Hornets extended their lead back to 5 before the end of the quarter.


3rd quarter

The Cats cut the lead to 1 with 6:09 left in the quarter but that was the last time the Cats were that close. The Cats had cut the lead to 46-43 with 4:31 left, however, the Hornets went on a 10-0 run to finish the quarter and headed into the fourth with a 13 point lead.


4th quarter
The Cats cut the lead to 48-56 with 5:53 left in the quarter and the home crowd thought the Cats were going to come back, but it was not to be. Neither team could make a strong run until the final minute when the Hornets extended their lead from 13 to 17 and gave the Cats one of their worse losses of the season.



Odd stat: Ariza did not have that great of line but he was quite the pest on defense and most of his points were scored on fast-breaks.

My fix- try it without the ccc.exe set to high.

UPDATE
I I played a seven minute quarter game with both NBA2k.exe  and the CCC set to high and it crashed. I played without the CCC set to high and it did not crash. Bears more testing.

------------------------------------------------------

Here is what I did.
Start the game.
Once you hit the main menu hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE to bring up Task Manager.
Click the button to show all processes. (YOU MUST BE THE ADMINISTRATOR!)
Right click on NBA2K.exe
Hover over Set Priority
In the box that pops up select Realtime or High. I will go into further detail later.
-Optional: Do the same thing to you graphics card.

After I did all of the above except for the graphics card when I played 3 quarters of 5 games of Bobcats VS Hornets with 1 minute quarters, 4 of which were in my Bobcats dyansty. That particular game had crashed on me twice today. All 5 of the those games went awesomely well, save for one thing. The audio sounded like it was from a record from the 50s.
I then went and changed the Priority Level to High and played 3 quarters of 1 game with 1 minute quarters with the Bobcats vs. Hornets. That went very well! And the audio was great!
I then set the minutes to 5 per quarter and kept the priority level to High and played 3 quarters of Bobcats vs. Hornets. Success again!

Before I go further I need to give you my settings and PC info.
PC info
4GB Ram, Intel p7350 @ 2.00ghz Core 2Duo. ATI Radeon HD 3650 512RAM

Game Settings
Resolution: 1920/1080
Window Mode: On
V-Sync: Off
AA: Off
Arena - High
Player - High
Crowd - Medium
Sideline Characters: On
Texture Quality: High
Depth of Field: On
Floor Reflections: On

With those settings I get about 25 fps. Yeah, I know. Really bad graphics card.

I did a performance benchmark with the following settings and the results follow
NBA2k.exe = Normal priority, CCC.exe (graphics card) = normal priority. Result 25/medium
NBA2k.exe = High Priority, CCC.exe =normal. Result 25/medium
NBA2k.exe = Realtime, CCC.exe = normal. Result 28/medium, sound choppy
NBA2k.exe = Realtime, CCC.exe to High. Result 28/medium, sound choppy
NBA2k.exe = Realtime, CCC.exe to Realtime. Result 30/medium, sound choppy
NBA2k.exe = High, CCC.exe to Realtime. Result 27/medium, SOUND PERFECT!
NBA2k.exe = high, CCC.exe = high. Result 29/medium, Sound Perfect

Not once did the game crash using the NBA2k.exe method. I did not have the time try adding the CCC.exe method to it as well yet. For me the best combination is the NBA2K.exe set to high and the CCC.exe set to High.

Bobcats get 3rd degree sunburn in Miami. Check out the crazy Lebron card!

The Bobcats went into Miami for one of their first big tests in a while. They knew winning would not be easy. Somehow they ended up with 3rd degree sunburns even though they did not hit the beach!

1st Quarter
The Heat took the first lead and the Cats then tied the game at 2 only 15 seconds into the game. That was the closest the Cats were to get in the game. The Heat finished the quarter on a 7-16 run and Kemba picked up his second foul with 2:14 left in the quarter.

2nd Quarter
The Bobcats struck first in the 2nd quarter and cut the lead to 18-12. Neither team could make a good run during the quarter. The Heat did go up 38-26 with 47 seconds left after Kemba was charged with his third foul. With no time left, Wilson Chandler hit a long three to cut the lead to 9 at 38-29.

3rd Quarter
The Heat opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run in the first 2:37 that set the tone for the second half. The Heat continued to plaster the Bobcats and with 1:24 Love picked up his fourth foul and the Heat led 59-38 after the free throws. The quarter finished with the Cats on a 5-2 run cutting the lead to 61-43.

4th quarter
The Cats cut the lead to 65-47 with 5:26 left. The Heat went on a 6-0 run to extend their lead to 71-47 with 4:07 left. The Cats went on a 5-0 run to cut the lead to 52-71 with 3:36 left in the game. With 1 second left the Bobcats were down 77-55 when Chandler did it again when he hit a buzzer beating 3 pointer!

Odd Stat: Wilson Chandler missed 19 of his 25 shots.
