ESPN, Stephen A. Smith: About The Bobcats “Its Pretty Damn Pathetic How Bad They Are”
The Drive Thursday 2-16-12-The guys talk with the NBA analyst about Jeremy Lin and the Linsanity happening in New York, when the Bobcats will win another game, and they get into Michael Jordan as a an owner in the NBA.
Stephen was excited about Lin. He said he had never seen anything like it before in all his years in the NBA.
“You don’t expect that from anybody, let alone someone who graduated from Harvard, an establishment not known for its athletic prowess…it is deserved to the point that he is producing…he is six and zero for his starts.”
Smith thought it was ridiculous to think that Lin and Carmello Anthony would not be able to get along on the court. He believes that Anthony should be thrilled to have a true point guard there, helping feed him the ball, emphatically stating anyone who believed otherwise is “completely asinine”.
He passionately pulled apart the Bobcats, going through the biggest issues within the team-the lack of key, skilled players. He feels that Michael Jordan needs to do a better job of acquiring players, spending more money to get the right team members. He feels even if the Bobcats get the number one overall pick, they are better off trading the pick for a proven veteran in the league, someone who might have a prayer of turning around the season.
