  1. If you go off advanced metrics like ORPG and Wins which most teams use, Kemba was the 15th best player in the NBA. His Market is the reason most don't know about him or his play. He's easily a top 6 PG and a top 15 NBA player.

    Rebound season for our whipping boy??

    same here, Batum should bounce back just for the fact that Howard isnt here.
  3. Wasnt just him, all 21 members voted for Carolina. Most dont think our offense can keep up with Atlanta and NO.... what ever.

    NHL Draft 2018

    I'm not going to complain, at least they didnt fug up the pick by trading back or something stupid. I also think Svechnikov ends up being the best pro from the draft.

    NHL Draft 2018

    No it's not, based on his stats hes worth a 5 year 25m deal plus he'll be the youngest ufa in nhl history in 2 years. So a 5 year deal eating up his unrestricted years at 5m is a good deal for both parties. Team and his agent met today and it went badly from leaked reports. Hurricanes are way off on pay and not budging from their 4.2m a year stance with Lindholm. I'm hoping that TD proves me wrong but so far he's done everything as cheap as possible and with word about lindholm over 800k a year and Skinner, Faulk, and other reports that's hes going to do this as cheap as possible and barely hit the floor and not try to build a winning team to compete for championships but just playoffs. I have a feeling we'll start to see a lot of changeover among players.

    NHL Draft 2018

    Lindholm is likely gone because team being picky and cheap on cost not wanting to meet his 5m a season demands.

    Dwight Howard Traded!

    Not saying how I felt, saying how the team feels. He ran wrong plays or wouldnt run plays at all, didnt properly set screens for players. bogged down the offense when Batums main skill is passing and keeping the ball moving...ext..ext.

    Dwight Howard Traded!

    Don't believe a player recently traded can be traded again within 60 days. Also he doesn't become a Hornet till July, so dont think he can be traded till September.

    Dwight Howard Traded!

    Also the second point to make is that Howard disrupted team chemistry on court. He wasnt as solid of a screen and roll guy as Zeller. Both Kemba and Batum play well off screen and rolls that's another reason why.

    Dwight Howard Traded!

    No we traded him because of tax reasons, MJ dont want to pay Lux tax. Cant afford to do that in a small market especially when the team isn't a playoff team with a chance of reaching the ECF or the finals.
  11. Maybe not Batum, but probably be able to throw Williams, mkg in a deal and get good return.
  12. Osman, #8 and filler for Kemba plus a bad contract is a hell of a deal for the Hornets.
  13. No way they give up Love and the 8th plus take on Batum contract for basically Kemba.
  14. I dont think Kemba is a Hornet after draft night. I fully expect him to be moved for a top 10 pick.
  15. Yea if this is true, makes the panthers one of the worst teams as far as elite talent is concerned. Most teams had 10 or so from what I remember seeing.
  16. if they get enough players, then this hurts the NFL and its advertisers more then it will players.
  17. “In hindsight, the next day, it’s probably a good thing,” Ainge said during an appearance on Boston radio station 98.5, The Sports Hub. “We were probably going to spend too much to do what we needed to do That was a few days after the draft, He meaning Ainge did in fact offer a massive trade to the Hornets that was turned down. While I dont think it had the nets picks in the deal, I do think it had the four first round picks in it.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    I'm not sure the Suns would do that deal, Kemba and 11 isnt worth the first pick even if the Hornets take back Knights contract in the trade. Best your gonna get for Kemba is around 14-16 in the draft without taking anything back. Reason you trade him is #1. Not sure he's going to resign in Charlotte. #2. You don't think he's worth a max contract. #3. Signing him to a max contract limits the growth of the team long term. #4. He's worth more now in a trade then he ever will be.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    I'd stick at 11 and see if the team can grab a pick in the 12-14 range. Take SGA at 11 and Kevin Knox with the other pick.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    Should trade Kemba for biggest possible package and draft SGA. Start SGA and Monk, use the pick from Kemba trade to draft a forward.

    La Canfora tweets that Hurney is safe

    Look at the Steelers in the 40's, 50's, and 60's before Knoll was hired. They hired mediocre coaches all the time but kept them around because of loyalty. They've done it recently as well. Very similar to the Panthers just more success.

    La Canfora tweets that Hurney is safe

    No I'm thinking like the Steelers, they very rarely fire staff or coaches. They've had 7 GM's, two of which are Rooneys. The other five have on average been the GM for 13.2 years. Even when the team has gone 2-12, they've been more inclined to fire coaches then Front office staff.

    After this coming season they would have one year left each. Why I dont expect either to get fired at least till after the season, probably not even then.

    La Canfora tweets that Hurney is safe

    if you think so. it be real expensive to fire him and Rivera. Talking over 35-40m in buyouts. Might as well let them stay and earn another contract extension.

    Hurney is safe, so if you think they'd fire Rivera and Promote from within for the HC spot. but both are safe. dont expect either one to be fired unless this coming season is 2-14 and then Hurney will be looking for a new coach.
