Byron Mullens is having by far his best season as a pro this year, averaging 13 points and 8 rebounds a game. His play has been one of the reasons the Charlotte Bobcats have a surprising 7-8 record, already matching their win total from last season.
Tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers, Mullens provided one of the highlights of the season so far. Early in the 1st quarter, he got his own rebound and made a strong drive to the lane where LaMarcus Aldridge was waiting for him. Mullens went right over him, throwing down a powerful jam that electrified the sparse Charlotte crowd.
