    Worse than MKG? I severely, severely doubt that.
    But I guess we'll find out in 2-3 years. His jumper looks better than what people are proclaiming on here (his first practice with The Heat went phenomenally) his two-step is Harden-esque, and his release is insanely quick.
    I doubt Winslow will have to reconstruct his shot.

    It looks promising but Southpaw looks a tad better.

    I appreciate the kind words, good sir!
    Believe it or not, my dog is the same way, man. She loves to scent mark all the fugging time too. I have to literally walk her around the block for her to finally poo. It's the only way for her to run out of pee. Try that lol

    Kinda. I guess I dig the idea of trying each bar's signature dishes but so long as the food from the surrounding area is of the higher quality, it's fine. I mean, that's the only negative I could think of anyways.
    PhillyB would have to hose me out.

    I'd go.
    The only thing that turns me off is the menu or lack thereof. Other than that, the bar is a viable and refreshing option. I like it.

    Naw, she's a big dog (around 75 lbs). Most of that weight is around her chest and neck area though.
    You're kidding, right? Lol...

    I've learned to stop obsessing over stuff like this. The Panthers are the red-haired stepchild of the NFCS. And I'm okay with that. Our boys tend to play at a different level when they're overlooked or disrespected. I think they thrive with the Us-vs-The-World mentality.
    Cam is a genetic freak and Luke is a Top 3 overall defensive player.
    I don't need an article from NFL.com or ESPN or PFF to tell me that. So, I'm cool. Let them troll I say.

    It's hard to tell. I adopted her when she was 1-2 years old and I've had her for about 6-7 years, so I assume she's around 8-9 years old. She's probably now considered 'elderly' or middle-aged (I think Australian Ridgebacks have a 12-14 year lifespan).
    That's what I'm assuming. She must have gotten excited about something while I was gone and she hurt herself in the process. It sucks. I have to accept that she's getting older even though she still loves to play like a puppy.

    Thanks so much!
    I've eliminated stomach issues. She's eating and drinking, and she's not vomiting or has diarrhea. So I'm breathing a bit better now. She's also walking better now too. It has to be her neck or back.
    Thanks again!

    Dog Experts I need your help!!!!
    Okay, I just got home from work and my dog is acting quite strange. When I left her this morning, she was absolutely normal but seven hours later she appears to be in pain. She doesn't want to jump up on the bed, walk much around the house or even eat. I also touched one of her front legs and she yelped. She seems to be moving gingerly and appears to only stay in the shape of C. However, when I took her outside, she started walking faster, sniffing, in the shape of an I, drank water when I brought her back inside, etc (normal stuff).
    I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow but any advice? Have any of you seen this type of behavior?

    It's starting to make sense. Not with most Hornet fans but I can see the direction MJ and Cho want to go in. Everything rides on Frank developing into that guy. To me, it's a very solid line up. Kemba (ball movement), MKG (defense, rebounding) and Kaminsky (scoring, distribution). If it all goes according to plan, that's a nice trio for the future. It's not sexy or flashy but it's good enough to win games. Of course, if you guys do manage to land Curry, perceptions will change.

    It's rather interesting. I can see why MJ preferred Kaminsky over Winslow. The Hornets desperately needed a scorer and Justise isn't that. However, it's a very risky move because Winslow's shot is already there. As the article alluded, at age 19 Winslow is further along than Kidd-Gilchrist when it comes down to his mechanics and form. He doesn't need an overhaul like MKG did. So the potential is there for Winslow to be a 20/10 guy but he's got work to do. In Miami, he'll be surrounded by experienced and top level coaches. It'll all be up to him.
    Everything hinges on Kaminsky adapting to the NBA. If he can cope with the speed and physicality from defenders, then he should be fine but I sense he'll struggle mightily, especially his first two seasons.

    I still think had you guys drafted Winslow, MJ wouldn't have traded Kidd-Gilchrist away. Justise is a hybrid player, so he could play the SG and SF roles. Three years of investment, MKG has repaid The Hornets with being a Top 10 defender. You don't trade someone like that unless you change your identity and scheme.
    Cho and MJ just have to hope Frank develops into Dirk-lite because he will be replacing Big Al. Adding Monroe would help tremendously though. That said, I'd save every penny for Curry (similar to what The Heat are currently doing for Durant). Golden State isn't gonna let him go without a fight.

    I must have been looking at his 2014 stats.
    I'm only echoing what you guys say on here. The status quo apparently is MKG is what you guys had hoped for on the defensive side but not offensively. As the second overall pick, he's everything you need as a squad that values defense (similar to Indiana) over offense. He's a fine fourth or fifth option in my opinion. However, the odds of him being as effective and impactful as Butler or Green or Leonard on the other side are slim. So long as Charlotte values defense, MKG will be a staple and a valuable piece.
    To be honest, I don't know what to make out of the Hornet fanbase. You guys seem to be happy with his defensive contributions but the moment he has a poor showing on offense (which is gonna happen a lot), you guys want him traded. Yet, these fans are aware that MKG is not a good second or third option.

    Scouts have highlighted that as a negative. Professional ball isn't the same. The athleticism he'll be facing is much different. Wisconsin fans agree with the nickname for two reasons:
    - Because of his shooting prowess 
    - Because he's stiff and slow.
    And yet he's shown regression. Didn't his stats take a significant dip last season? I mean, if he's improved on his shooting that much then why isn't he involved on the offensive side more?
    Judging by the MKG criticism on this site, well over half the The Huddle shouldn't be talking about Basketball then. I don't remember who exactly made this quote on here (paraphrased) but it sums up MKG:
    "The only impact MKG will ever have on our offense if we're lucky is two jumpers, and a couple tip-ins, dunks and free throws a game."
    MKG is a premier defender but his offense will always be limited. I mean, this is coming from a fanbase that labeled him a massive disappointment and is ready to say goodbye to him in an instant (just as recent as draft night).
