The Charlotte Bobcats are churning. Like, if you’ve ever made a salad all in one bowl, starting with the dressing, churning it up from the bottom, that’s the kind of turning over the Bobcats are currently engaged in. It makes me, as a fan entrenched in my own obsessions and what I think the team should look like, almost nostalgic for the past.
D.J. Augustin and his weirdo “inside source” are now gone, from the team and from our message boards. Corey Maggette, the latest line in a long line of middling “stars,” gone in favor of a much younger Ben Gordon and a draft pick. Paul Silas, not retained, a new coach that no one had heard of is now the much ballyhooed head coach that every fan hopes will turn things around.
