Melo makes it out of the 1st round!!!

I know in the past Ive been pretty critical of George Karl and his track record in the playoffs, but the Nugs look for real this year boys & girls. They destroyed this Hornets team (beat them by 58 on their home floor in game 4!!!) and are playing good defense for the first time I can remember. Chauncey Billups outplayed Chris Paul this series and is a stabilizing force at the PG position. The Nugs also have a deep ass bench with active athletic guys like JR Smith, Anthony Carter, & Chris "The Birdman" Anderson. Lake Show better watch out, cuz I think these Nuggets can contend wit them if they make it to the Conference Finals.

article in the NY times said Chris Paul might demand a trade. Talk about your all time implosions in the playoffs.

Same ole Hornets. Small market team that has trouble keeping its stars happy. I wouldnt blame Paul totally for this one. He was clocking 40+ minutes a night as the Hornets have no backup to spell him. The guy was worn down this series. His supporting cast also didnt play as well and the Hornets have no bench. To be a good playoff team you have to have a bench. If he bolts outta the NO, that team is done down there. He's the only guy on their squad that can sell tickets.

CP3 won't demand a trade, he's about to enter the 1st year of his max deal. He didn't quit either, he's worn out and didn't get much help.

The whole team quit on Byron Scott. He's going to be the scapegoat for this one.

BS isn't a very good coach but he's not the big problem, the Hornets FO is horrendous. They've managed to turn what was once a young and promising roster into a roster full of aging shooters with no potential. But you're right that they'll make him the scapegoat.
