Countdown to the Hornets!

29 posts in this topic

Kind of Sentimental for me that tonight is probably the last bobcats game.   Not going to be devastated and excited to pull for the Charlotte Hornets next season! But still kind of sentimental at the same time.

Go HORNETS!!!!

Let's hope we find a way to get Detroit's pick. That would help heal a lot of pain.

I might be one of the few, but I don't want Detroit's pick this year.

The best player you're probably going to get a number 8 is Gary Harris, and I don't see that much more of a difference between Harris who could go 8th and Hairston who good go 28th.

I'd rather wait one more year and hope they are in the top five in 2015 so we can grab my man Kelly Oubre.

I still need to get by the team store and get me a Hornets Tshirt.

I bought a hat back when they released but gave it to my little cousin shortly after.

No sharing this time.

Is it top 5 protected in 2015? That would be nice.

I wouldn't mind Harris or Young tho. Two guys who can really shoot the ball.

I think it's a high chance that we do land that pick: no9 or no10. At least one team outside the top 8 will probably win a top 3 pick.

It's only first overall protected next year.

A Gary Harris would really help this team. I would love to grab him and hairston(no way he makes it past 20 tho). Detroit is a team that could improve drastically as they under achieved this past year with more talent than we have currently on our roster. Wouldnt be surprised if the pick we get from them is at the back end of the lottery if we have to wait another year for it. Either way we can improve this team that is not far off from being very competitive in the playoffs. I love the experience guys like kemba and mkg are getting with this taste of the NBA post season. This series will be a blessing in disguise. This young guys will be very hungry, and they are learning now what it takes to play championship level ball. Go Cats! Go Hornets!

- A team with Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings will never be successful.

- Hairston could easily fall to the end of the first due to character concerns.

Exactly.

I think Detroit will be better next season. If we get that pick this year, it will be the #9th or 10th pick. It probably won't be that good in 2015.

Detroit Pick: Gary Harris / James Young / Nick Stauskas

Portland Pick: Cleanthony Early / PJ Hairston / Zach Lavine / KJ McDaniels / Clint Capela

Dont think Hairston will fall that late. His stock is rising quickly everywhere I look at.

I bought a Bobcats hat today to pay homage.

 

Either way I hope we win.  But a new beginning is exactly what this franchise needs.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
