But the Hornets have never really hit on any of their draft picks, so that would've given them more opportunity to do so. I get what you're saying, but I think successful franchises like the Spurs can use that logic much easier than a team that consistently drafts busts.
I think Luke will be out for at least a few more weeks and I'm completely cool with that. The long term health of Luke as a person is much more important than this season. But I feel pretty confident in saying if the team was sitting at 0-3 instead of 3-0 half of the posters would be screaming for Luke to be rushed back onto the field instead of giving OP the Aaron Rodgers "relaaaaax" treatment.
Yesterday when I was talking about people not having a life...yeah, this is the stuff I'm talking about. I can't wait for this guy to teach a sunday school lesson to some 7 year olds about how their parents should burn their Cam jerseys because Cam is Satan in human form. Meanwhile he will probably follow that up with how much the kids need DeAngelo as an influence because "he just seems like a swell guy!" online. Its really sad how much we think we know people based off of social media.
Take the bandanas out of the equation and no one would have a problem. I'm a white guy that points at the camera half the time in photos. Yeah, sorry, I'm lame. But no one interprets it as me pointing a gun. Cam is in a pic with 8 other guys. One guy in the picture (not him) could be interpreted as pointing a "finger gun." This is only news because it is preseason.
This. I've called him Corey ever since I've heard that's what he wishes to go by. But him allowing the commentators, coaching staff, etc to introduce him last year to us as Philly is kind of his fault. He should've went by Corey all along.
1. Steph said free agency isn't appealing to him and the Bay Area is "home to me and my family." It's not happening. 2. I'm one of the only guys that ever posts in these topics other than you. No need to tell me I don't understand how NBA free agency works. I realize that guys get waaaay more than they're worth if that's what you're saying. I realize Valanciunas just got $16 million per year in his deal. 3.I just don't think it's smart to commit $13 million per year to a guy that has missed over 20 games the past 2 seasons. Don't be rude and give me the "this isn't the NFL" stuff. I realize that and I can differentiate the two. I realize the NBA is player dictated. C'mon man, don't be insulting. I'm not an idiot. But you don't have to write a book explaining why we should give a guy $13 million for his defense and offensive potential. I don't dislike MKG. I just think it's an overpay.
Funny that Steph revealed today he never plans on testing free agency so they say "screw it, let's pay some people." I would've been ok with a 2 year deal. But he is made of glass and just lost his shooting coach. This was an overpay and a perfect example of why they aren't anywhere close to being better than mediocre.
