    Cory Higgins.

    22 pts in 24 minutes for the Bobcats against the Hawks. Led all scorers.

    Kudos to Cory! I've been trying to keep an eye on the box scores. He hasn't played in a couple of weeks - not sure if dinged up or they sent him to the ndbl. Good to see him back on the big stage.

    Did Higgins have better teammates on CU or the Bobcats?

    The Bobcats would beat our 2010-11 team 150-50. Easily, and maybe even more

    The real question is would the 2011 UK team beat the Bobcats?

    I refuse to use the sarcasm font, but come on man, the bobcats suck. We could at least keep it under 100.

    They already average 88 points/game. You really think there's only a 12 point difference? Cory Higgins is basically the 12 man off the bench on a "sucky" team, and he was a GREAT player for us. Think about that

    You're taking a comment that was obviously meant as a joke entirely too literally. And for the record, the "100" he's referring to is whether CU could lose by less than 100, not hold the Bobcats under 100 pts.

    I do think Kentucky would beat them if they had some games to get used to NBA competition and rules first. There are more lottery talents on UK's roster than Charlotte's.

    The bobcats are still an NBA team with years of talent. Last years final four MVP is on that team. Kemba?

    No one was being serious about us being better than the Bobcats, calm down killer.

    Kind of off topic, but the latest debate between me and my friends is, what level of mens basketball could Brittany Griner be competitive and effective?

    It doesn't move athletically for a guy. It also doesn't have much in the way of hops. I would say it could be a Shane in mens college.

    Except that she's a few inches shorter and doesn't have anywhere near the strength.

    so here is the MPG for the bobcats roster

    DJ Augustin = 29.1 MPG
    Bismack Biyombo = 21.1 MPG
    Derrick Brown = 20.6 MPG
    Matt Carroll = 11.3 MPG
    DeSagana Diop = 12.2 MPG
    Gerald Henderson = 33.2 MPG
    Cory Higgins = 11.4 MPG
    Corey Maggette = 27.9 MPG
    Byron Mullens = 21.5 MPG
    Eduardo Najera = 12.3 MPG
    Tyrus Thomas = 19.7 MPG
    Kemba Walker = 27.1 MPG
    DJ White = 18.7 MPG
    Reggie Williams = 23.5 MPG


    As you can see Higgins is 2nd to last. He is ranked #39 in rookies in minutes per game, this shows the full list:

    :yeahthat:


    And it'd just be competitive and effective... not superstar status or anywhere close. There are many High school boys who would just be too strong and athletic for Griner.

    She wouldn't be too good. Average 6-8 ppg, imo.
