The Charlotte Bobcats played their first summer league game Friday night and did something they hadn’t done in what seems like millennium; Win, and win big.
Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer had some observations from that win, and says “If the Charlotte Bobcats can maintain anything like the fast tempo of Friday’s first half, this will get interesting. Likewise, if rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist can make threes like he did, it will be rough keeping him off the rim.”
Mike Prada, who writes for SB Nation, had this to say about Michael Kidd-Gilchrist after the game:
For the next two hours, Kidd-Gilchrist opened everyone’s eyes, showing any remaining skeptics that the clichés about his energy before the 2012 NBA Draft were far more than clichés. The final numbers — 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists and four steals — were impressive enough, but Kidd-Gilchrist’s breakout was about far more than that.
The money details for Ramon Sessions’ new contract with Charlotte have finally been released.
