I don’t know the drug testing policy in the Charlotte Bobcats offices, but it might be a good idea to collect a round of urine samples from Bobcats personnel if any of the recent online rumors are true. (Don’t test Michael, though.)
There are reports out of Charlotte that Quin Snyder is in contention to take over the head coaching vacancy, along with Jerry Sloan and Bryan Shaw. According to CBS, those three names are the leading candidates for the job and they’ll all meet with MJ either today or tomorrow. Sloan and Shaw have solid resumes, but if Quin Snyder is hired, the Charlotte Bobcats should be banned from NBA play forever. That ban should also include D-League competition, summer leagues, fan fares, and NBA licensed video games as well.
But that’s not all the Bobcats personnel are doing that suggests insanity and/or bath salt consumption. Chad Ford said in his online chat yesterday that Charlotte is considering drafting Harrison Barnes with the No. 2 pick. Leave it to North Carolina’s pro basketball team to take an overrated Tar Heel too early in the draft: Raymond Felton (5th overall, 2005) and Sean May (13th overall, 2005).
Quin Snyder and Harrison Barnes chatter aside, there is also a chance Charlotte could deal the No. 2 pick to get a more seasoned player that could lead the team right away. Names like James Harden and former Bobcat Gerald Wallace lead the online rumor mill as potential targets in a trade. I don’t think either are a great idea over Robinson, Beal or MKG, but it would be a much better plan than drafting Harrison Barnes.
And the Quin Snyder talk? If he’s hired, I expect to read reports of a naked Michael Jordan eating Rich Cho’s face off by Monday.
