Yeah I meant at the time, about the Pistons.  

 

Like I said, I worry about losing the team if we don't make money sooner than later.

MJ wants money? Easy. Rebrand the Hornets. We could have Kevin Durant as a bobcat and MJ wouldn't be able to generate as much money as if we have Jeremy Lin in a Charlotte Hornets jersey.

No one care about the bobcats. No one has a relationship with it. No other free agents want to come here bc it's the Bobcats.

I hope so but didn't Cho or MJ said something about adding a big FA this year?

 

They said the same thing last year too

A "big, max level" FA has a different meaning in Charlotte. They're going to have to overpay for a mid level guy. No elite OR even top level FA is going to come here.

On a side note - should have never got rid of Ray Felton.

Why exactly would you want Felton on this team?  So he can take minutes away from Kemba, or so we can play a really small lineup with two 6 footers?

 

I love Felton, but he is approaching 30 and the last time he played on a shitty team (Portland), he didnt even bother getting in shape

Ok, I understand it now.

 

But, hell to Felton. The dude was terrible here.

Hes a fat average PG at best. He never went on and did anything wonderful until now being put on a talented Knicks team.

Felton is one of the best players in team history

Felton was a pretty good PG here. He was never an elite PG or anything, but I definitely feel confident in saying that he made a positive impact on the team. Kemba is definitely the better PG though, and that's not really even debatable.

if we take Nerlens in the draft, and he isn't available till mid-season, we should still be bad enough

keep a top 6 lotto pick.

Not gonna lie, if we win the lotto and get Noel it sets the team up perfectly to tank next year.  You can act like you addressed the team's complete lack of big men with the draft even though he wont be playing when the season starts, so you suck next year then the following year you have another top pick, a full season of Noel, and you make fans forget about 3 straight terrible seasons by calling yourselves the "Hornets"

    • I have to apologize to @TheRed , not for what I have said, but most certainly how I have said it. He was right that this isn't how I normally post and my passion for the subject matter got the best of me and left me with the just the worst. I should have said, "Please, you have obviously got an informed opinion and a desire to get the best out of this country we share, so don't pass up on your opportunity to cast a ballot. It doesn't have to be for every race, but find someone or something you can get behind and put your votes there." One single vote may not matter in a presidential, or even gubernatorial, election, but don't let that turn you into thinking the voter doesn't matter. Look, act and vote local -- these are the races that have the most impact on your life and where you have the most impact, too. A change at the local level does reverberate up the ladder, it is how all great movements start. I won't get on you or anyone else about not voting again, but please, in exchange, could you just commit to casting a ballot next time your local elections roll along? You are full of smart ideas and are passionate about a number of issues, don't let that go to waste. You might very well actually improve things. And Lord, we sure do need that, don't we? Once again, my apologies to @TheRed and @NanuqoftheNorth for going above and beyond in calling you out. You deserve a better shake than I gave you.
    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4
