Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-19

Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-19Constructive as the Stephen Jackson trade was in improving the Bobcats' overall talent, the deal with Golden State worsened an imbalanced roster. The Bobcats have too many guards and almost no power forwards.

As it stands, the Bobcats have six guards plus swingman Stephen Graham, and four of those are primarily point guards. Meanwhile, starter Boris Diaw is the team's only true power forward, and Diaw is typically undersized for that position.

Vladimir Radmanovic was filling in as the backup power forward, and even that was a reach. Radmanovic was more an oversized jump-shooter than a true big man. Now Radmanovic is a Warrior, and it appears Gerald Wallace will have to play some power forward by default.

Wallace has proved in the past that he can be effective matched with power forwards. He's a spectacular leaper and can use his quickness and post-up skills to create mismatches. However, he wore down physically when former coach Bernie Bickerstaff was forced to use Wallace at power forward three years ago. Larry Brown will need to be careful, evaluating which power forwards Wallace can and cannot handle.

The best fix might be trading one of those point guards -- perhaps new Bobcat Acie Law -- for a backup at the 4-spot.

SIXERS 86, BOBCATS 84: A 20-foot jump shot by Boris Diaw led to a long Sixers rebound and a transition layup by Lou Williams to win it. The Bobcats weren't in the right spots on the play (newcomer Stephen Jackson was on the wrong side of the court), and no one had the foresight to call timeout and abort the play.
