wow, over react much?  Jefferson is a huge part of this team.  Him not playing right now makes an impact. Also not sure how you guys got it in your head that winning on the road was easy.  Its going to take time for the players to learn their new system and develop chemistry.

Even Miami and Chicago have 2 losses so lets give it 15-20 games before making an assessment. I believe the team is definitely better than last years with Jefferson playing. I do agree that these first round picks need to step up and show that they were worth those picks. Kemba has been good but not impressive and Zeller hasn't show much yet but we'll see. It's still early.

Kobe Bryant was putrid as a rookie. No clutch ability, and all he could do was dunk. According to some on here, if they were Laker fans then (which they might have been), they'd have been yelling to cut Kobe after 3 games bc he hadn't done anything to prove himself.

They've played 3 games, dude. Chill out. I know along with others that you're one of those fans who is hard on Kemba and not forgiving at all. Also, please tell me who the leader of Phoenix, Toronto and Milwaukee's teams are, because I'm certain they're not as good of a leader as KW. 

 

The team is better than it was, but it's still a 25- to 35-win team, and when you're one of those teams, you're gonna have nights where you straight up suck. Doesn't mean everyone deserves to be cut.

 

I'll keep saying it until he take it up a NOTCH.

 

This was exactly what you guys told me about Brandon LaFail and Gerald Henderson the last 3 years. What happend? I was right. I'm not saying Kemba is that poor of a player, but I dont believe he is the answer to be the PG who's going to carry this team to the next level. I'm a FAN but I'm also tired of rooting for mediocrity.

 

Phoenix: Eric Bledsoe

Toronto: Rudy Gay
Milwaukee may be the only other team with no leader along with Charlotte.

 

And as of right now, NO this team is not better than it was last year.

I hear Myck Kabongo is available

 

I'd take a look.

 

 

 

Our backup PG is outplaying Kemba right now. That's what you want? Sessions is nothing but a BACKUP, so when he's outplaying our starting PG there's def a problem.

Kemba has more points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks than Sessions and he is shooting better as well.

I'm going to hold judgement until Jefferson takes the floor. Friday night it looked like we were one player away from being solid. I know it was just the kyrieirvingplusfouraliers but we are a far cry from 2 years ago.

I also haven't been a fan of the team since we were the hornets and figured I'd start again now that we are back

LOL @ Kemba hate.  He's one of the few players we have that looks like a legit NBA player.   I was glad we signed Hendo but my god has he been terrible.  His shot is off like woah and he's forcing things.   We need Al in there but I'm worried about his ankle nagging him for a while.   High draft pick looks in-tact though.

 

We are missing shooters and mainly, a real allstar  I think we have good roll players but not a go-to guy.   

 

And the free throw misses?  Come on.  If we were better at the line we honestly could have had a chance in this game.
