I get all of Kemba's flaws. But if I were an NBA GM and I was offered Rubio for Walker, it would be a very short conversation.
This isn't a big deal -- different markets, different agendas -- but Ricky Rubio making more money than Kemba Walker doesn't make sense.
Redick has made himself some serious money, considering all the talk (ridiculous it was) that he wasn't an NBA player.
I so respect Kobe Bryant's passion. But on this team, it won't make much difference.
Jordan Hill making jump shots is the West Coast version of MKG making jump shots.
Last spring Jamal Crawford emailed a thank-you note to everyone who voted for him for 6th man. Manners from a different era.
Difference in Halloween living uptown and in the burbs: At 10 all the kids are home and all the "slutty nurse" outfits are just coming out.
So at 7 tonight I drove to the Teeter to buy some candy. Turns out no one in a South Charlotte townhouse community has trick-or-treaters.
Boris Diaw looks pudgie these days. That's actually a nice improvement.
I bet Goran Dragic is a player Pop would enjoy coaching.
Indignant, bug-eyed Tim Duncan is always entertaining.
OK, LeBron, that's just showing off.
I'd be fine with watching OT
Hinrich is still so clutch.
If you're not watching Cavs-Bulls, you might want to flip over. This game feels like it's June.
Hornets need to win Saturday. It's the start of a rough 4 games-in-five nights run -- at Knicks, at Pelicans, home vs. Heat.
Hornets might catch a break tomorrow night. Grizzlies in a tight, physical game at Indiana tonight.
These Bulls-Cavs games are going to be terrific if both teams stay healthy.
Joe Maddon a great hire for the Cubs.
I thought I'd be waiting out the extension deadline tonight. I'm impressed with how Hornets stepped up and got Kemba deal done.
Happy Halloween. Sun going down, trick-or-treaters coming out. Watch out for the little ones if you're driving.
Surprised I have to say this again: I'm glad to hear what you think. But when people are obscene or rude I block. You would, too.
Deion Sanders is just trashing Cam Newton. My.
Talk radio starter tomorrow: If Michael Jordan owned the Panthers...(yes that's sarcasm).
Er, um, uh, it's basketball season in Charlotte. Forty home games left and the playoffs.
It's as if Newton is surrounded by undrafted linemen...oh, wait.
Louisville is 5 minutes away from saying, "Really, ACC?"
I say it again: The Panthers' best running back is, you know, not a running back.
Hornets fans stuck around through 3rd-quarter 24-point deficit. Curious to see reaction to this.
Cason chasin. Rot-roh.
Burning question: Can one of these teams gain four yards and put points on the board?
You know those legendary basketball practices where the managers take the rims off the backboard? That's Saints-Panthers right now.
Man, the starting pitching in this Saints-Panthers game are both aces...
BREAKING: Roman Harper makes tackle.
Thanks, CBS, for providing that picture (yuck).
Gotta love any play where a fat guy gets to run with the ball.
"Hopefully we'll learn from our mistakes. We don't want to dig ourselves out of a hole like that again." -- Walker on 24-point comeback.
Cho said NBA's investigation on Jeff Taylor is not complete.
Rich Cho says they're following the NBA's lead regarding the Jeff Taylor situation. He's still away from the team.
"We're just thrilled to death to retain him." -- Rich Cho.
"We just felt Kemba is a big part of the team going forward." -- Rich Cho on the extension.
"I would love to be here as long as I can. I love the city of Charlotte." -- Kemba Walker.
"Kemba embodies everything we want in a Charlotte Hornet." -- Rich Cho.
Rich Cho says he's "ecstatic" about getting deal done with Kemba.
It's official -- Kemba Walker has signed his 4-year, $48 million extension.
Every time someone on Twitter tells me I don't know anything, the picture says, "I just started to shave."
He played like a guy who would be the 22nd pick.
This isn't a knock, he might end up a great player: But nothing Jabari Parker did tonight said, "Wow, he is special."
I know I turned "shot clock" into a punch line, but the Hornets committing 3 in the first 3 minutes of OT makes the point -- laughable.
I'm guessing there are 48 million reasons for Kemba to show up there on his day off.
1 p.m. press conference tomorrow with Kemba Walker and Rich Cho. Gee, I wonder what that might be about.
To use Clifford's term "intramural substitutions" don't work in the NBA because no one plays enough to develop rhythm.
Clifford can't play all these shooting guards. So PJ sat and Hendo played just 9 minutes.
Tonight was the biggest comeback in Charlotte NBA history.
Huge night for Kemba Walker -- 26 points, six rebounds and five assists.
Lance Stephenson looks pretty ginger along the bench.
Shot clock 3...Jeez.
Shot clock 2
And Bucks shot clock.
Lotta people getting their money's worth at Time Warner Cable Arena.
Big 3 from the new $48 million man.
Stephenson takes a charge on Middleton.
Kemba 3-pointer makes it an 8-point deficit, then Bucks commit turnover.
Gerald Henderson has played nine scoreless minutes, none since halftime.
Nine-point game on a Cody Zeller dunk.
End of third: Bucks 83, Hornets 68. Bucks shooting 52%
Brandon Knight might end up with a triple-double. He's at 18 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.
Stephenson VERY frustrated.
Maxiell coming back in -- a benched Biz, it seems.
Cody Zeller 3 fouls in 12 minutes.
Lance Stephenson makes first basket -- a drive -- after going 0-of-6.
Jared Dudley technical.
Ball isn't finding Big Al much. Might explain the 38 percent from the field.
Big Al is hot about how refs are treating him tonight.
Rough start for Lance Stephenson -- scoreless first half on 0-of-4 from the field.
Halftime: Bucks 57, Hornets 46.
Mystery call against Al Jefferson that time.
Interesting that Maxiell got the first shift behind Jefferson, not Biyombo.
Technical on Kemba.
MKG jump shot is first basket scored by a new-age Hornet.
Former team owner Robert Johnson siting at mid-court first row.
NBA spokesman Mike Bass on Jeff Taylor: "We are aware of Jeffery Taylor's plea today. The NBA's investigation of the matter is continuing."
