Well, they are very athletic and with a healthy Chandler they'll be tough.

Discuss.

NO, They have a chance just like every other team but its slim..

Skip is a Lebron hater. its possible, but not likely.

There is another thread for the who has a chance to upset the Cavs topic.

Larry Brown teams are tough. Lary Brown coached the Pistons when they upset the Lakers. The Bobcats may not have the depth to beat the Cavs.

LOL. Yes, the bobcats could win a game or two, but they have NO chance of beating the Cavs unless bron gets injured.

It is possible. Bobcats are a very good team, underrated IMO.

The Bobcats are one of those wild card teams that could give any top seed a run for their money.

They play that pesky Larry Brown D that frustrates so many teams. Their only issue is putting up the points and this year, they've been doing a pretty good job about that.

I heard that this morning and was about to dismiss it since he's such a bonafied LBJ hater but then I thought about the trouble Charlotte has given them. If you look at it they actually match up pretty good against them and in the playoffs thats all that matters......

Bayless is pretty weird, I don't even think he's a LBJ hater, i think he just does his antics to oppose everyone else and get attention (which is what he's suppose to do to get ratings). The Bobcats have a chance, but its slim. I like the matchup of Jackson and Wallace vs LBJ, both seem able to guard him, and they'll get help with Chandler back there. Anything can happen, if they did play I wouldn't be surprised if the pushed the Cavs to 6.

Not likely but it's possible. The Bobcats are a solid team.

The top teams in the East probably don't want to see the Bobcats in the playoffs, just as the top teams in the West probably don't want to see the Thunder in the playoffs.

Okay so its possible for the Bobcats who have never been to the playoffs in their history to beat the Cavs.. but I get drilled for saying the Grizzlies and Thunder could beat the Lakers? Ha.

You said they will and were willing to bet people. Theres a difference between will and could.

As none one in the world can guard lebron.. the opposit still happens..

if lebron is guarding wallace.. no can really check stephen jackson

they have Chandler, Diop, Nazr Mohamed to foul shaq and cover Big Z

for Mo williams there is felton

for boobie gibson there is Dj

for delonte there is graham


i think they can win 2 games..

kobe is spoon fed with elite talent..

lebron is surrounded by mediocrity every year :facepalm:

I could definitely see this happening. The bobcats play tough defense and have Gerald Wallace to play physical and challenge lebron. Stephen Jackson has been on fire for the bobcats. The bobcats have young talent and a coach who is a genius at knowing what to do and make use out of the talent on a team. Remember that unstoppable Lakers team with payton, malone, kobe, and shaq? They got upset by a Larry Brown led team that didnt have a superstar.

And also remember, the cavs were looking unstoppable last year too when the Magic beat them.

So you're saying that Kobe belonging to a superior organization is what makes Lebron better? :speechless:

I mean I'm not saying one is better than the other, but at this point Kobe is the king of the league until dethrowned. Even LBJ refers to Kobe as the best in the league.

He is.

yes kobe is better than lebron...

despite:

-having a much lower PER
-a much lower ts%
-being a worse rebounder
-having a worse a/to ratio, being a guard
-having a worse offensive rating and defensive rating
-shooting worse from the 3pt line
-having a much lower win shares
-avg'ing less points in the 4th quarter

so far this year, kobe has not been better at one thing on the court...not one..

and yet you still have the audacity to say kobe is better than lebron...

this is homerism at its worst...:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::f acepalm:

yea because rings don't matter:facepalm:, u lebron fans kill me when u say rings don't matter, which they clearly do. I'm sorry until he wins a ring he still another great player with only inflated stats to show for it. If stats were what made a great player then by definition I guess Lebron would be better than Jordan

well if any team is equipped to guard lebron its them. they can throw jackson(who is a legit 6'8) and wallace who is a beast. i saw him destroy lebron in a prior game. they have brown who gets that team right and organized. a stretch 4 with diaw, can handle the ball sort of like hedo did, and the only thing holding them back is chandler cause they need somebody to rebound and have size to match up with shaq,Z

Bobcats are an interesting team, they could upset the Cavs theoretically, I just don't see it happening in the playoffs.

Hahaha typical laker fan & how do U suppose U determine who the better player is without throwing out the rings since kobe has like 6-7 years on lebron so off-course he is gonna have more rings ??

Gerald Wallace may just be the best player to match up against LeBron. He has outplayed him in head to head matchups this year. It could be possible...because the bobcats will be scarppy defensively.

I think the Bobcats have a very good chance of beating the Cavs. They are very athletic, they play very good defense and can stretch the floor. Anything is possible with a Larry Brown coached team. I know all of the "witnesses" are not gonna like reading this but it's time to stop thinking like the Cavs have already won the title but have yet to do anything. BREAKING NEWS: The Cavs can be beaten

prodigy
02-13-2010, 09:30 AM
I think the Laker's have a better chance of getting beat early. Kobe is hurt all the time and they have no bench other then Odom. Shannon brown can dunk, But not really a guy you wanna count on. + Derek fisher is pretty much a bum these days.

Or should we just book lakers vs bobcats in the finals?

Look, in the playoffs we would beat the Bobcats in 5. Only way we lose to them in a 7 game series in the playoffs is if LB gets hurt.
