Well the franchise has managed to kill all goodwill built up by last seasons team and the rebrand. They are now back to being about as interesting to watch as they were under Mike Dunlap. The rebuild was botched when we started overpaying for mid level players like Stephenson and Jefferson. That's a path to a perpetual 6-7-8 seed at best and a first round playoff loss. Throw in some untimely injuries, extremely questionable coaching and waning motivation and you have the trainwreck that is this years Charlotte Hornets.
Yep they definitely managed to somehow kill all that momentum and goodwill they garnered from the Hornets rebrand. The net effect of these offseason signings has been a far worse defensive team and a less efficient offensive team. If Hayward had worked out this team would be much better. He would have fit right in with what we needed. As it turns out, Lance was the worst possible fit.
I'm glad they won and all but could you imagine if we played our entire second string against the hawks starters. Their bench scored 100 points against our starting five. If the roles were reversed I doubt the hornets would crack 60 and would lose by 40+.
