Stockholm syndrome: Psychological phenomenon described as "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other."

Oh, hi Bobcats. What's that you're carrying? A whip? Oh! Okay, I'll bend over. It's my fault you're this bad.

Wait, what?

I feel like it's my fault. I'm sure you feel like it's your fault, too. As fans, we often find ourselves inexplicably committed to a team that repeatedly tortures us with the same baloney every game. At some point, we come to accept their shortcomings as the norm, and eventually, as our fault, although I'm not sure why.

Really, what can you do?

Every time I write a recap, I feel like I'm writing the same things over and over again. The Bobcats' defensive system is terrible. The Bobcats don't move the ball well on offense. The Bobcats have little chemistry.
