Less is More<br><br>A revolutionary thought popped into my head the other day as I perused<br>the Bobcats’ future salary obligations. I felt like writing a story about the<br>seemingly unlimited possibilities the Bobcats have in the next two off-<br>seasons due to their distance under the salary cap. I typed furiously and<br>punched numbers until I was stopped dead in my tracks by something<br>quite depressing. There are two players on the Bobcats roster that have<br>player options for the 2012-2013 season. Matt Carrol, who’s making $3.5<br>million this year, is one. The other is DeSagana Diop, raking in just over<br>$7 million in 2012.

Which brings me to this groundbreaking idea.

Surely there is a far better way the Bobcats could have spent $10.5<br>million this year. I’m willing to bet they could have even spent less<br>money to get the same production if they really wanted to. I read a<br>story on ESPN.com about how baseball teams fill out their rosters by<br>giving less money to younger players who have the same skill sets as<br>older guys who demand more money. What a novel concept. Why pay<br>a wandering veteran $5 million on a one-year deal to bat .265 with<br>15 homers and 65 RBIs, when you can take a young guy out of the<br>minor leagues and pay him significantly less to do the same thing.

There’s really no reason NBA teams can’t do this.

To the Bobcats credit, when they got Diop, the team was trying to do<br>something that seems like a pipe-dream now; Charlotte traded Ryan<br>Hollins and none other than Matt Carroll for Diop during the 2008-09<br>season, in the hopes that his defense would push them over the edge,<br>into the eighth seed and into the playoffs. It took a year, and the ‘Cats<br>finished over .500 and got their first ever playoff birth in 2010. Their<br>run didn’t last long, and next year Charlotte traded away Gerald<br>Wallace, signaling the team would be in re-building mode for the<br>foreseeable future. The only problem was that Diop’s contract lasted<br>well into the future...CONTINUE READING AT QUEEN CITY HOOPS (http://queencityhoops.com/blog/2012/02/14/less-is-more/)</TD></TR></TABLE>

I hate Henderson. I guarantee he'd take off running if he saw West in a bar.

However, because he's hurt, area 55 needs to chant something about him anyway.

I miss George Hill... does anyone know when he'll be back?

This is all I could find:
http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/3438/george-hill


Hill (ankle) continues to go through individual workouts, but there's still no timetable for his return, NBA.com reports.

Spin: Pacers coach Frank Vogel said Hill was "getting closer" to a return, but he's still uncertain if Hill will return before or after the All-Star break.

They are probably hoping to get through this "easy stretch" without using him so he can fully recover. My guess is that he will be back for the Chicago game.

George Hill Near Return From Fractured Ankle
Feb 19, 2012 1:13 PM EST


George Hill might return to the Pacers’ lineup before the All-Star break.

Hill, who has been out since Jan. 31 with a chip fracture in his left ankle, took part in all of practice Saturday with the exception of the scrimmage.

The Pacers will evaluate Hill today to see how his ankle feels. They have missed his scoring and energy off the bench.

02-19-2012, 04:25 PM
If they truly feel he's healthy, I would like to have George Hill play Stephenson type minutes against a couple of these teams with losing records. Not a lot of minutes, but let him see the flow and get some confidence in that ankle.

I think a little live game action to knock off any jitters or rust, and them allow him normal minutes in a game like Chicago.

Once again do this if he's healthy, not to try and rush him back.

Bring Hill after the all-star break.

We play the Bobcats twice and the Hornets, not exactly elite teams. We need a healthy Hill for the second half, so don't bring him back too soon.

Biyombo is crazy athletic and already fairly adept on the defensive end, but he is undersized (at least against Hibbert) and can't throw it in the ocean.
