Hey, we had to do something to make tonight’s Bobcats @ 76ers game seem exciting. There’s more of this lovely lady after the jump.
Now that we have your attention on with the post…
It’s time for another edition of Philadunkia’s advanced scouting series — “Fo’ with the Foes” — which thanks to the help of an accomplished journalist from around the NBA beat or blog world, previews upcoming 76ers opponents.
Today’s edition of “Fo’ with the Foes” features tonight’s opponent, the Charlotte Bobcats who are coached (and more) by our old friend Larry “Play the right way” Brown. Charlotte is a disaster on offense and with a record of 3-7, it’s possible the Bobcats have struggled worse out of the gate this season then our 76ers. However, in acquiring Stephen Jackson from the Warriors the ‘Cats made a nice early season move to improve their lineup and things could start looking up for Charlotte very soon. We especially love the fact that Brown came out and publicly assured everyone that he is used to this type of player (locker room trouble maker) and that he has no worries in acquiring Jackson. It was like a flashback to the good ol’ days when Larry and Iverson were here in Philly together. Man we miss that era.
Despite all the drama in the Sixers locker room right now (Brand vs. Jordan, Sammy D trade rumors and the Speights injury), we believe this is a game the Sixers could and should win. After loosing two straight and four-of-their-last-five, they certainly need it badly enough, that’s for sure. So let’s hope the Sixers come out with the appropriate level of urgency and put this one away early. By the way Larry, if you’re looking for some basketball “played the right way”, then the Wachovia Center is not the place for you to be tonight.
