naw, im hopeful we get in the playoffs this year- the squad they have put together really interests me. But waiting around for 'luck' to fall our way just because we a due- it's gonna be a long wait. You gotta go out an make it happen and not rely on luck
2001, we are 1-3 VS the winless Redskins. We go in and Weinke throws a pick 6 to Lavar Arrington to lose the game (we lose out the rest of the season 1-15) and I get to walk down the ramps over and over passing the same group of people just a$$-raping me with laughter and jeers at FedEx Field. I was probably a sophomore or junior in Highschool and almost killed the Redskin fans I went with. Was thiiiiiiiis close
Am i the only one rooting they sign him to a deal like that. If that defense had a great QB heading the ship - they would be unstoppable. Wilson was the chink in the armor all through the playoffs last year. Signing him to a mega deal like that would force them to let others walk
I'm a Tarheel, smart guy- hence the mix-up Miles and Mason and bad recollection of players. I just figured I'd give some recent players that are in the league and rattle a few opinions off the top of my head. And yeah, I only remember Seth playing at Duke for like a year. I am seriously floored right now that you guys say he was a senior, that's crazy. Did he see the floor much as a freshman or sophomore?? No wonder I had ZERO expectations for him...
The key word is expectation here. If you didn't ever expect them to be a superstar or team leader, then you can't say they failed to live up to expectations IMO. Green = exceed expectations Orange = met expectations Red = bust --------CURRENT PLAYERS----------- Seth Curry - came out way too early- never expected much of anything from him BUT I expected more than what he has given so far. Loul Deng - exceeded expectations IMO. I thought he was gonna be good, but not as good as he was in Chicago. Take away a few injuries and he would be right up there with the Paul Georges and Jimmy Butlers. Mike Dunleavy - not a flop at all in my opinion, he's a more than solid shooter. He's nothing more than a role player but did anyone expect more from him than that? Hendo - not a bust for where he was drafted, has had his moments and definitely belongs on an NBA roster. Did anyone really think we had an allstar when we drafted him? Rodney Hood - havent seen him enough Kyrie Irving - Top 10 PG in the league? Nuff said Ryan Kelly - I never expected anything from him, but you can't give him a positive grade for doing absolutely nothing. McBob - I find it funny that outside of the few years he had here in Charlotte, he has been a bust. Jabari Parker - need more time but probably will at least meet expectations Mason Plumlee - he has only had 1 good season in Phoenix on a run and gun team that padded his stats. Miles Plumlee - He was one of the only bright spots on the Nets roster for the past 2 years. I didn't think he'd be anything more than Hansborough 2.0. JJ Redick - Top tier shooter that needed someone to help him get his shot- has done well in that role but not exceed it, IMO. Austin Rivers - see Seth Curry (although he is turning it around in these past playoffs- "Thanks Dad!") Kyle Singler - never expected anything from his frame in the NBA but has carved a lil niche on the teams he's been on. --------FORMER PLAYERS----------- Battier, Boozer, Elton Brand, Duhon, Grant Hill, Maggette, Jay Williams (injury), Sheldon Williams
