i probably am over-reacting to the blowout, but yeah- thats how i feel now.. unless we break the bank on someone and overpay, its impossible for decent players to want to come here IMO

Yep. We have the $ and we're not far off. We need a SG who can handle the ball and will shoot 3's (looking at you Hendo) and a bench that won't let the other team go on a 20-4 run.

 

Also, we got screwed at the end of the season. The Cats could have beaten (or at the very least kept it close in a long series against) any other team in the East. But, of course, we get screwed to get the Heat.

There's still a large amount of teams FAs would rather play for but you're getting closer. I think it's going to take a BIG NAME draft pick to really get FAs to want to play here.

I really think we need that superstar so my initial reaction is to throw the kitchen sink at Melo.

I think we learned today that a good offense is better than a good defense.

We need a guy that can take a game over and Melo is a guy capable of doing that.

If he says no then he says no, but it wouldn't hurt to try.

I was actually just saying that to someone.

We need Melo and Steph lol.

Fwiw, he ain't winning one in NY. They have no money to build around him.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
