James Borrego Is The New Head Coach

Recommended Posts

We'll... This isn't his first time coaching the Hornets (New Orleans assistant). 

His team defensive style is to protect the paint.  So you can expect to see a lot of three balls go up against us. 

He's young (only 41) so you hope he's more adaptive and innovative than being overly convicted and set in old ways.

Here comes the rebuild.  Not saying I like it at all but Kemba is good as gone.

Yup. Watch the new HC trade Kemba for Kyle Anderson

They say he's a strong defensive minded coach. I could care less about that. This coach NEEDS to be adept with player development which Clifford was terrible at. Whether we trade Kemba or not, we will be cap tied for another season or two so in order for us to be competitive in the East, we have to develop and rely on our young assets. That's Monk, Bacon, Hernangomez and the 11th pick in this year's draft. If Borrego can develop those guys and the young assets that come after them, then the Hornets will begin to trend upwards in being successful. 

I agree but if we do trade Kemba I am really hoping to add another lotto pick to that young (no pun) asset list.

I see what you did there ha. Yea that'd be great! If we can't get a pick to our liking for Kemba, I'd live with trading him if we could offset Dwight, Nic or Marvin with him. Way easier said than done.

If you want to get an idea of what to expect from Borrego, watch his introductory press conference.  IMO, he knocked it out of the park.  Said all the right things, and most importantly, seemed to recognize the same issues with the team many of us have seen.  It's easy to see why he was Kupchak's choice.  Smart guy who seems to get the modern NBA and has a plan to maximize the talent we have.

Oh, and I get the feeling that he is not too high on Howard.  He spoke glowingly about most players and how he can use them, but just talked about Howard in generic terms.  Wouldn't surprise me if they just eat his contract if they can't find a trade partner.

Here's a link to his press conference.  Sorry, but for some reason, I wasn't able to embed the video.

oh joy protecting the paint when the league is shooting a record number of 3 pointers lol 

 

should add that he specifically say in the presser that he wants to defend the three
