Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-08-19

Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-08-19
If there was any doubt before, now there's none -- the Bobcats are Gerald Wallace's team.

With Emeka Okafor traded to the New Orleans Hornets, Wallace is the last remaining original Bobcat. Okafor was never outgoing enough to be a vocal leader, and Wallace has filled that role well. Even more will be expected now from the small forward, who will be this team's on-court guidance and conscience.

Coach Larry Brown has taken a shine to Wallace, and appropriately so. Wallace needed coaching after spending a single season at Alabama and then spending several years at the end of the bench with the Sacramento Kings. Brown is, above all else, a teacher, and Wallace enjoys being his pupil.

Brown mentioned late last season that Wallace asks some of the best questions he's heard from a player. That's Brown's way of saying Wallace is a student of the game. Considering all of Wallace's athletic gifts, he's the right pick to be Brown's pet project in Charlotte, much as George Lynch was for Brown in Philadelphia.
