Jamison Would Listen to Bobcats Offer
“Never a dull moment here,” (Antawn) Jamison said Tuesday morning as the Los Angeles Lakers’ game-day shootaround broke up. “We all know what the expectations are.”
That would be an NBA championship, pretty much every season. The chance to win a title in Jamison’s 15th season, by signing with the Lakers, trumped the option of living year-round in Charlotte with his four children. The Bobcats offered him a contract to play out his career as sort of a senior statesman in his hometown.
Jamison said he gave great thought to joining the Bobcats, but after playing on so many bad teams in Golden State, Washington and Cleveland, he wanted one legitimate chance at a title.
“If they still want me back home, I’d sure listen.” Jamison said. “I have another couple of years in this body. If they want me, I’d have no reservations about putting on a Bobcats uniform.”
