    This is exactly what I mean about you not understanding how the NBA works. I don't think anyone here expects Bridges to be a bum, however success in the NBA revolves around having star and/or superstar caliber players. Bridges is highly unlikely to be the latter and generally unlikely to be the former. The goal is not to assemble a stable of average to slightly above average NBA players, something Bridges will likely be. That is pretty much what we have done since the Hornets came back to CLT. The reason selecting Porter is more logical for a franchise in our position is precisely BECAUSE he is such a boom or bust prospect. If he booms, we potentially land that star/superstar level talent that we so sorely need. If he busts, we likely get worse as a team and our draft position may actually improve into an area where we can have a shot at drafting potential star and superstar caliber prospects. This poo we are doing being in the 8-14 drafting range and assembling a bunch of average starters or good role players is not going to accomplish anything. We are going to always be in that 7 to 12 range in the East, miss the playoffs or get bumped in the first round. Ragtag/feel good squads that suddenly make deep playoff runs are not at all common in the NBA and they certainly do not win championships.

    Okay, well at least you definitely proved me right.

    Today’s media BS

    Cowherd is a dumbass. He is just a product of the media's determination that we watch more when people are bickering or acting out. It's the general Jerry Springer effect. If TV upsets you, turn it off. If tools like that upset you? Don't watch. They are doing that for a reason.

    I am not sure you understand how the NBA works......

    Howard has always been a dumpster fire of a teammate. Glad to see him gone.

    They seem dedicated to mediocrity. It's pretty amazing.

    There is literally little to no downside for gambling on someone like Porter Jr. Draft him, let the roster stay relatively intact and see what happens. If the season starts going to poo and MPJ doesn't amount to much, move Kemba and begin the fire sale to get to dumpster fire mode. Frankly, there is no real benefit in staying the course we are on unless you get a major talent in the draft. MPJ could have been that guy. But, instead we draft another rotational/role player on a team that is essentially constructed of them. If we don't improve dramatically, it is time to start losing and losing as much as possible.
  8. I demand a recount on Matt Kalil. I think aliens snatched him and left what we have now.

    CAP vs Barner

    I don't think there is any reason to keep a one-trick pony on an NFL roster unless that trick is really, really, really good. The bottom line is that Hood is not an NFL caliber player.

    CAP vs Barner

    I don't personally think much of either Barner or CAP but I would rather roll with a guy that can fill in for KR/PR duties if need be. I would really like to NEVER see CMC return the ball, his usage rate is going to be high enough anyway.

    CAP vs Barner

    If he is struggling to catch the ball without contact, I am not envisioning a scenario where he is better WITH contact.

    CAP vs Barner

    Personally, I am more interested in our free agent pick ups and our top 5 round draft picks. We are much more likely to see those guys the next 2-3 seasons than we are from the UDFA, rookie camp signings or 6th-7th round picks. Hopefully we do find another unheralded gem. We have done it before. But the Huddle tends to go a little overboard with it's practice squad crushes.

    CAP vs Barner

    Even being an NC State fan, I wouldn't want the Panthers to load up on State players that weren't worthy of NFL roster spots. I am not hating on Hood because he is from UNC, he just simply isn't an NFL caliber player. Similarly, guys like Reggie Bonnafon are unlikely to be anything more than practice squad or training camp bodies. Fans get too caught up in a lot of these late round picks and UDFAs. The overwhelming majority of them are not going to pan out.

    CAP vs Barner

    Getting back on topic, I would personally rather keep Barner for the KR/PR ability. I think at this point the book seems to be largely written on CAP.

    It was the same with Clemson fans last year and the LB(Boulware) who was CLEARLY not an NFL caliber player. That is the #1 problem with college sports fans, they can't take off the homer glasses at the next level.
