The panthers have had the same problems for a few seasons.

- Lack of weapons at WR
- Lack of quality secondary defenders

Random note I heard while listening to Bobby Marks on the latest Woj pod: several years ago the Nets apparently had a verbal agreement on a 4-year/$32M offer sheet with... Tyrus Thomas.

Before pen to paper, the Bobcats matched the APY but added a fifth year.

Thoroughly enjoyed Dukes comeback last night.

weapons are WR are not the problem anymore. we have a decent core the problem was Cam arm limited his throws and their routes.
I would replace lack of weapons with lack of edge rushers

Shot 100 FT's today. Made 88 of them. Made 82% yesterday. Used to be in the mid-70's. Making good progress.

No idea what changed from mid-70's to mid 80's though. Just randomly decided to shoot yesterday, made 82% and shot today at 88, the worst i did today was 8/10, previous day was 7/10 and didn't miss 2 in a row either day. This isn't a thing i practice, i mostly just run around and shoot randomly for some cardio for an hour or so.

Its like that time i went from an average/good jump-shooter to a good/very good jump-shooter out of nowhere. maybe i'll start dunking next lol. might need to get backboard first though :wink:

What's weirder? DJ Augustin starting for a playoff team, scoring 25 and knocking down the game-winner in 2019 or Raymond Felton playing important playoff minutes, period, in 2019?

im picking Felton, I will be more surprised with Dj if he maintains it. he's always had a good handle and shooting stroke, but can he maintain it and not get completely burnt on defence

Felton doing anything at all in the NBA in 2019 is wayyyyyyyy weirder to me.

Shot 100 more FT's today. Somehow made 96% of them, including 40 in a row the last 4 sets (45 in a row total, counting the end of the 5th set too).

Im basically Steph now.

It was a clear area of need and his height and versatility is going to be a pretty good against some of the short QBs we play this season like Brees and Wilson. I'm definitely hoping they have their eyes on some offensive linemen tonight though.

Incredible athlete. Needs to gain 30 pounds.
