Hornets vs Bulls

Recommended Posts



Everyone should be traded, including Kemba, for as much as they can bring.  There is no reason to continue with really anyone on this roster.

That's a horrible idea. You can't let the whole team go. Kemba is the only reason we won't go 12-70.

no. things might change but right now he looks like one of the worst contracts in the league (2 more years PLUS a player option)

or mkg

maybe but he's more valuable to the hornets than he would be to other teams imo so i wouldn't

or frank

possibly but unless we're full on tanking idk about trading away frank with cody out

Sadly I agree.  Kemba is an UFA after next season.  Cannot afford to lose him in FA.  His value is highest before the deadline.  If you cannot extend him them you need to see what you can get for him.

Then trade everybody that anybody will take and get as many picks and expiring contracts as possible.  Keep Monk and play him more.  It is the only way he can learn and get better.

This group is not going anywhere, it is time to start over.

We have lost to a 4-20 team twice.  What we are doing is clearly not working.

Never been so bored watching a Hornets game. This team is severely flawed. I swear that our GM doesn't actually talk to our coach. The players he gets our coach, doesn't fit the system at all and our coach is too set in his ways to adjust his system to our players. 

Our coach preaches defense but we have no real long athletes. Let's take a look at our players: 

1. PGs: Kemba is undersized PG who is great taking charges with help defense, but allows the guy he is guarding into the lane at ease. Especially obvious in pick and rolls with Dwight Howard. Monk is a SG who Cliff sees as a PG because of size is also small. MCW has the length Cliff loves but can't even hit a freaking layup. 

2. SG: Nic and Lamb. Nic has slowed down so much that he is now becoming a liability on defense. If he got called for all the holding he does on defense he would be screwed. Lamb is long but slow footed. 

3. SF: MKG, Bacon, Graham: MKG is a one way player. Bacon has potential but since he is a rookie won't get PT. Graham is an overachiever. None of these guys have great length, but this is the one position where all the players can defend. 

4. PF: WIlliams, Frank, Job: Williams is a SF playing PF. He does admirably but he is asked to guard the new age PF. The 7 foot outside shooter and he helps too much and gives up the 3 too often. Frank is slow and is a Center playing PF before he's too weak to handle Centers. 

5. C: Howard, Zeller: Howard is our Al Jefferson. Our offense consists of throwing it to him in the post and hope he doesn't try to shoot a stupid jumper. On defense, he is no longer an attribute against some teams because of the 3 point shooting Centers. Zeller is fast but not long and can't jump unless he has a running start. Never seen a C get blocked down low so often and by smaller players . 

Disappointed in this team.

Your idea of a good Hornets team is 5 Kemba Walkers, isnt it.
