Cuts - Who are you afraid to lose

47 posts in this topic

I am most afraid of losing Medlock; Kicker is usually an either or scenario, and after watching "Mediocre Mare" last year, I'd rather take my chances with someone new.

Having Mare is like being in the lead at the Masters with 6 holes left and then finishing 2nd to the guy who was 5 strokes behind.

Gettis. I only say that because of all of the upside he looked to have his first year. Now there have been rumblings about his work ethic. That scares me. A beat writer compared it to Otah's work ethic. So my answer is Gettis.

Only one I'd say is Gettis, even though I think he's safe. I couldn't care less about any other fringe players.

I'm with the OP - kicking seems to be the only position battle where so much is hanging in the balance, and such a crucial decision. I hope to hell Gettis is safe.

Gettis is prob the only one. I have always expected Mare to keep his job for two reasons. For one we would take a big cap hit, two Medlock has not blown him out of the water.

Isn't Gettis on the pup list?

I know I'm going out on a limb here but I don't think Brandon Hogan will be on the opening day roster.

I would put Armanti down but at this point I think it would be a bigger surprise if he made the team.

Medlock cost about 1/10 of the price Mare does.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
