He was good in college and its long been rumored he can shoot the ball. I wonder if the Hornets are trying to get that impact rookie like the Bulls had last year. If they think he can play in the pros, great. But I'm more angry about the admission they can't get anything out of Vonleh and Zeller, our last two picks. When are we going to develop our prospects?
I don't understand this theory that keeping Cliff is accepting mediocrity. We've been hiring and firing coaches every 1-2 years since the NBA came back to Charlotte. The truth is we've never had much of a roster. We can read off a mile long list of players we should have drafted but didn't. Do you think that Eric Spoelstra won the Heat two titles? Do you think Steve Kerr and Marc Jackson are amazing coaches?
Everything Clifford has done is logical. I don't have a problem with him. Of course I would love to see Vonleh out there but he's 19 years old? The Vonleh argument is "if we are going to lose, lose with the young guys". Clifford isn't trying to lose.
