Honestly this is a real curious question for me. I been watching a little bit of the summer league action the past couple of days and watching Jabari and Wiggins play didn't make things any better for me. Truthfully i still feel cheated when we missed out on Anthony Davis a couple of years back. One day eventually I hope we can get our guy.

Maybe, Vonleh. If not, maybe 5-8 more years bc we won't be having a high lottery in the next two-3 yrs. Unless, Al opts out after this year. Now we could really be a high lottery team in 2016.

Just pretend Al is that guy. Otherwise you're in for a very long wait- we aren't going to sign a true star and we couldn't even manage to draft one with high lottery picks never mind mid 1sts.

MJ and Cho can't make up their mind. A small market team like us should've built through the draft. But, making bad picks didnt help so they panicked and turn to Free Agency ( Al ). Now, they're not sure what they wanna do again. Panicking in FA now and not wanting to go after Lance.

Keep Al here for the remainder of his career and he can be "our" guy.

Sign Lance, put him on some anti-psychotics. Boom, star.

Yeah I'd also say Al is a star.

Top three center in the NBA, according to media/voters.

Depends on what your definition of star is. Al is one of the 2 or 3 best centers in the NBA.

Al is a star, but I think OP is asking when willl we have a star that we draft as our own.

Don't get me wrong i love big AL and i love his old man game. I don't know if I can say AL is a Star in my opinion. He is definitely a very good player and can give you 20 and 10 when healthy. But can you see him as the guy that can carry the Hornets through the playoffs and to the finals? I mean the East is starting to get a little bit tough.

I get what you're saying, Al is a really good player but he's a B-list star. I don't expect we will have a superstar anytime in the near to intermediate future.

There are only two of those in the entire NBA.  James and Durant

If you average 22+ points per game at 50+% fg% you are a star
