Here are comments found around the Bobcats' boards during their game with the Celtics. They went from sensing and easy win to felling very disrespected because the Three Amigos sat out. Can't blame them for not being overly chatty on the game. It did not go well for them. I know if I paid a lot of money hoping to see KG, PP and RA and then they didn't play, I would be pretty disappointed as well.
Well we have had success against them this year but I don't see us winning this one. Hopefully I'm wrong!
Boston fans are saying none of the "big three" are playing, so this should be a win.
None of the big three are playing. That's disappointing, I wanted to beat them fairly, not blow them out because they are resting players.
I will be disappointed if we don't win by more than 10.
If Boston is resting the 3 amigos, we win.
The only game im going to this whole **** season and they are going to put in some **** worthless lineup. Prolly cant even scalp these worthless tickets now
Celtics went crazy on us in the 1st quarter, and have pretty much maintained a decent-size lead ever since.
Looks like Leon Powe has played really well, I've been high on him since his knees seemed to be all right, but I wouldn't trade a 1st or anything for him. He's one of those Craig Smith/Ryan Gomes/Ronny Turiaf type of glue guys...
20 point lead for the Celts without the big 3, can't justify viewing this over the Kansas game.
Wow. N KG, no Pierce, no Allen. And we are down 20 with 5 min to play. A pathetic showing after a wonderful game vs Toronto.
Obviously their bench is better than everyone said. Funny we match up with their starters and have 2 close games and blow them out and then we play their scrubs and get blown out.
Leon Powe is killing us. I wouldn't mind getting him if Celtics cut him afte the seasons.
Nah. They wont cut him. He is one of their fbest players off the bench.
Being a Bobcats and Heels fan this is pretty much the worst night of baskeball I've ever experienced.
We're the NC State of the NBA. The only way you won't be disappointed is if you have no expectations.
I really thought we would beat them tonight. No pierce, garnett or Jesus and they blow us out. Never saw that coming.
They looked deflated by the fact that Boston didn't send in the starters. I completely agree.
Charlotte seemed to play as if they were disrespected; they were completely deflated from not having the quality competition.
Just an all around awful game, outside of a couple of Bobcat plays, Scalabrine almost going coast to coast, and Big Baby going behind the back on JRich.
Yups I think this turned into a throw-away game for both teams; only Bostons second-stringers wanted it more - well just because second-stringers do that when they can. Those 2nd stringers are TOUGH players; maybe not greatly skilled, but tough. Unfortunately the Bobcats weren't so tough.
Frankly I think the fans were the ones disrespected tonite. Count the ways? I paid $300 for 2 tickets...$300 so that KG Allen and Pierce could stay home and soak their feet. $300 so that Sam can play Boykins, Felton, Nazr and Okafor together - 2 Centers and 2 Point Guards. $300 to watch the Bobcats play with no fire. Here's what I think...I think that when an NBA team sells season tickets it should grossly discount preseason games and games during the last 2 weeks; or at least put a disclaimer on the season ticket package.."WARNING. THIS IS THE NBA AND WE DON'T LIKE TO PLAY IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS OF THE SEASON, HOWEVER YOU HAVE TO PAY THE SAME AMOUNT REGARDLESS. SORRY" I saw SO MANY kids with Garnett and Allen and Pierce jerseys, and not one of those guys traveled with the team.
