I always thought Nazr Mohammed got something of a raw deal with the Pistons, so I'm happy to see him flourishing with the Bobcats. Since being moved, he's averaged 10 points and almost eight boards in 24 minutes a game -- and in his first game against the Pistons last month down in Charlotte, he went off for 19 and 13. Will he come through with more fireworks tonight (6pm, FSN)? We'll see.
One thing I'm curious about is how Mohammed will be received by the Palace crowd. Will he be cheered? Booed? Or simply ignored? I have a hunch he'll mildly booed if anything, not that I think he deserved it. No, he was never happy with his playing time, but who would be? He was brought in under the guise of being a starter but was never allowed to play more than 15 minutes a game and was all but forgotten once Chris Webber arrived. But through it all he remained professional and was never a disruptive force in the locker room.
I'll be at the Palace filing pre-game, halftime and post-game reports for HOOPSWORLD. As usual, leave your thoughts in the comments.
