The Bobcats lost to the Jazz last night 110 – 102, This however was no fault of Gerald Wallace who busted his ass on the court to the tune of 30 points, 13 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals. Unfortunately not everyone has been in the same level of effort as Crash *cough* BORIS DIAW *cough*… excuse me, must be my hayfever acting up again. Crash decided to make his thoughts public and for this we applaud him.

“You look between our 4-man and our 5-man, we got eight rebounds,” Wallace said. “I don’t think we’re taking pride in our defensive assignments, personally. We’re not coming out and taking pride in helping our teammates.”
Wallace, who has 16 double-doubles, was asked how to fix Charlotte’s problems.
“You tell me. Can you fix somebody’s heart? Can you fix somebody’s effort?” Wallace said. “That’s a personal thing. That’s something that person has to deal with mentally: Whether he wants it or not, or whether he’s up to the task to come out and competing with us every night.”
Stephen Jackson who has been doing his part also chimed in with the following:
“You’ve got to look in the mirror,” Jackson said. “We’re all blessed to have this job. We’re all blessed to be able to take care of our families. I think we owe it to our teammates and yourself to go out there and play with more respect for the game.”
After hearing those comments from their teammates, let’s hope that Boris Diaw, and yes you too Tyson Chandler show some heart and begin to play with the effort that the rest of their team is every single night
