Jannero Pargo felt a little like an interloper. Josh McRoberts felt a little like an interloper.

That’s just how it is in the NBA when one guy shows up on a 10-day contract and another shows up in a trade-deadline deal. Particularly so when you’re joining the NBA’s worst team, a group with obvious holes to fill.

The transition can feel awkward.

Pargo and McRoberts are the new guys for the Charlotte Bobcats. Each has quickly helped this team. Each says part of that is about a locker room where nobody acts threatened by their presence.

“You come into a situation with a bunch of guys who’ve been on the team – all professionals, all competitors, and no one wants to come out of the game,’’ Pargo described.

“I come here, or anyone on a 10-day contract comes here, and he hasn’t been through training camp. Then you get thrown in the game. It’s tough to take two or three shots in a row over guys who don’t get that opportunity (without making waves). But I’ve noticed here guys want to see you do well.’’

That’s almost identical to McRoberts’ impression. He showed up last month in a minor trade-deadline deal. The Bobcats acquired him from the Orlando Magic for Hakim Warrick. Three weeks later, McRoberts is starting over Byron Mullens, Jeff Adrien and Tyrus Thomas at power forward.

McRoberts has said more than once how welcome all his new teammates have made him feel. Gerald Henderson, a former teammate of McRoberts at Duke and a Bobcats co-captain, explained why Monday night.

“Nobody on this team is an All-Star, where you just throw him the ball every time and he gets 30 a night,’’ Henderson said.

Translation: There is no one so skilled and talented on this Bobcats roster that he should feel others don’t deserve a chance.
