Tyler Mann is not a hard guy to spot. First, as he'll happily admit, he's blessed with height and girth. Second, there aren't many people in Time Warner Cable Arena for the game between the Charlotte Bobcats and the Memphis Grizzlies anyway. And third, Tyler wears a giant pair of striped blue-and-orange overalls that make him the most visible man in the building, players included.
He's the fearless leader of the Cat Crazies, the only official fan section of the worst team in the NBA. Armed with thunder sticks and thick skin, they've spent 31 home games in their seats behind the basket trying to lift spirits in the otherwise depressed building.
