“I’m excited about Lance,” Jefferson said in the hall outside the Hornets locker room at the Thomas & Mack Center, where he had shown up to watch Charlotte eliminate New York from the Summer League tournament. “We’re all going to be on the same page as far as defense, and defense dictates the offense.
 
“But Lance is a playmaker. That’s the reason he led the NBA in triple-doubles last year. He’s got this nastiness about his game that you want on your team. I was really excited to hear he signed with us and he wanted to do that. I think he’s got a lot to prove, and he wants to show people he can be a great superstar in this league.”

The season cannot get here soon enough.  Hopefully the NBA schedule nerds will throw us a bone and give us a home opener against Cleveland on National TV.

 

Storylines:

 

The original Hornets opened their inaugural home season against the Cavs (40 point loss)

 

Lebron and Lance Stephenson get requainted while the playoff antics are still fresh

 

The hive will be freaking electric with the return of the Hornets

 

 

What else is there?  And don't give me Spurs, just don't.

The Queen City is on the rise.

There couldn't be a better time to be a proud Carolina sports fan.

If only the Hurricanes didn't suck.

I would prefer the same circumstances but Toldozing the Heat instead...

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
