  1. Steve Clifford Extended

    Extending him early hopefully pays off as it seems as if he will be a hot commodity come this summer.  His name was mentioned when rockets fired McHale. 
  2. Pets Named after Carolina Panthers

    This is Jake (Delhomme) back in Week 1 at 5 months old ... he's having a pretty awesome first Panther season!  
  3. Cam has ruined a young girls entire LIFE

    Sounds like a woman trying to legitimize her feelings through her daughter.  Using your own child to mask and publicize your anger towards a football player is much more appropriate than the celebration by the evil that has forever destroyed your own perception of an "everyone wins, it's everyone else's fault" society.    #parentoftheyear
  4. Our Color Rush Uniforms

    Someone should update the photo shopped pics to adjust for the new info ... cause I don't have that type of skill or software.
  5. Jeremy Lamb extended by the Hornets 3 years/21 mill

    My only guess would be they would like him back but for lower $ than what the option is.  Let him become a UFA, offer him what they think he's worth, and go from there.  Its probably a risk worth taking with a developing player who has proven to be a knucklehead at times.  Just an idea.   
  6. Jeremy Lamb extended by the Hornets 3 years/21 mill

    I se this as the team gambling on his potential, buying low and hope he exceeds his contract.  Considering MKG's injury, Batum not guaranteed to re-sign, and PJ's inconsistent play ... it seems like a gamble worth taking for a small market team.  Toss in the increased cap and floor probably justified this move in their eyes anyway.  Considering his youth and ability to shoot the three I don't mind the deal.  Toss in the factors above and I can further see why the team may have done it. 
  7. It is clearly preseason...BUT you can see the difference in floor spacing by not having MKG and Henderson on the floor together.  You're also seeing the pressure off of Kemba and Al not having to be the primary scorers on most possessions (Batum).  Trying to temper excitement because its only preseason... but you have to be encouraged by what we've seen so far. 
  8. Troy Daniels

    I don't see why he can't be an asset off the bench ... let him guard second team guards rather than starting guys.  He struggled to guard late this season when Cliff left him in with some of the starters.  Especially last night against Derozen.   Bring him off the bench and play him when matchups are favorable otherwise.  His three point shooting is valuable for a team that lacks in that department.     
  9. With 4 Games Left

    The other thing to consider is do you play Vonleh early out of necessity and stall any development?  Some of the issues with Biz are arguably that he was thrown into the fire too soon when the Bobcats didn't have the luxury of developing him.  When Clifford came on board, Biz's minutes fell ... though when he plays now he at least has become a great rim defender and above average rebounded.    I am all for Vonleh playing, but I understand as a coach playing a veteran over a raw talent even if the raw talent will more than likely be better in the long run.    Vonleh will have this summer to get better, stronger, and study the game and will hopefully get the minutes his talent deserves. 
  10. With 4 Games Left

    I don't necessarily understand the beef with not playing Vonleh as much.  From a coaching perspective you're trying to win basketball games ... and its clear that Cliff valued the experience, rebounding, and defending of Max over Vonleh.    Playing and developing young talent from the beginning of the season is for teams without expectations (Philly) ... coming in, and for most the season until recently, Charlotte was in the hunt for a playoff spot.  You play the players, who at that moment, give you the best chance to win.    Its clear from Cliff's rotation that was trying to win.  So now that it is blatantly obvious that Charlotte's not getting in, he can concede winning for development purposes.     
  11. We're officially tanking it out

    IF that assumption is true, I would hope the team would tell the other players ... cause they almost pulled off the road win tonight against Miami. 
  12. We're officially tanking it out

    If you're argument was plausible, which it isn't, the team certainly isn't tanking... at least not yet.   Biyombo is playing well with a recently broken nose and no mask.   Henderson has 20 and counting in the third quarter and Marvin has 9+ boards.   The players and Cliff don't appear to be giving up.
  13. Who would you want as a replacement for Clifford?

    I completely understand frustrations with Clifford ... though I'm still not sure moving on from him is right just yet.    The team has had is fair share of injuries with Al, MKG, Kemba, Lance, and Biz all with extended absences from the lineup.  I believe in most of his philosophies as coach:  defensive rebounding, transition defense, low turnover basketball ...   I DO AGREE that he comes across as stubborn in failing to extend the defense or relying too much on Al Jefferson... or playing odd lineups.    But, please no Mark Jackson.       
  14. Hornets out of playoffs?

    The next three, in my opinion, will determine if we get in or not.  The other four (not including Detroit) are hard to predict because they could be resting starters or experimenting with new lineups, etc.  I would be surprised if Houston and Toronto aren't resting starters by the end, so in theory that could be an easy two.    My only hope that we finish strong is founded in how Kemba has been playing since the fourth quarter of the Boston game on Monday night.  If Charlotte can weather Indiana and Philly, rumors are that Zeller and MKG will be back for beginning of next week.    Regardless, we are following the team all the way to the end, which hasn't happened that much since the original team left (due to poor play).    Here's to squeaking into the playoffs and giving Atlanta or Cleveland a run for their money!    
  15. Hornets out of playoffs?

    Charlotte is two back (9th) as of today (Thursday).   Remaining Schedule   4/3 Friday @ Indiana 4/4 Saturday v. Philly 4/7 Tuesday @ Miami (Cha leads 2-1) 4/8 Wednesday v. Toronto 4/10 Friday @ Atlanta 4/12 Sunday @ Detroit 4/13 Monday v. Houston 4/15 Wed @ Toronto   The next three are incredibly important ... we may have an even better idea of the hornets' realistic odds of getting in by Tuesday night.
