CHARLOTTE â€” Byron Mullens knew it wouldn't be easy to win over Charlotte Bobcats fans.
Mullens had only scored 39 points in 26 games during his two seasons with the Thunder, so he understood the disgruntlement when the Bobcats traded away a second-round pick in 2013 to the Thunder to get him.
"When I got traded here a lot of people were kind of upset and saying, 'Why did we trade for this guy?'" Mullens said.
But three weeks into his tenure with the Bobcats, Mullens has quickly developed into a fan favorite because of the instant offense he's provided off the bench.
