Bobcats take photo with comedy legend
by Chris Chase, USA TODAY Sports
Okay, maybe this photo, taken in the lobby of an Oklahoma City hotel, was taken with a legend in the loosest sense of the word. Yet the argument could be made that the oft-maligned Carrot Top is a legend of his own realm: prop comics, workout routines and hokey appearances on Leno. That’s something, no?
The star of Chairman of the Boardposed with the photo with Bobcats players (from L) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, Reggie Williams and Byron Mullens. They all appear with broad smiles, thus marking the first time Carrot Top has made four people simultaneously laugh in years.
The photo was posted the day after Charlotte lost by 45 points to the Thunder and became the first team in 21 years to trail by 40+ points at halftime. One day later, Charlotte lost again.
The team had been off to its best start in franchise history. Then they see Carrot Top and — boom — they’re back to being the Bobcats.
Meeting with Carrot Top is something Charlotte should have done last season, during its historic losing campaign. Now they’re a team on the rise. The team should be meeting with [fill in the blank with up-and-coming comic of your choosing]. Leave Carrot Top for the Wizards and/or Brian Scalabrine.
Do yourself a favor and watch that Chairman of the Board link above. You won’t regret it.
