I've been the biggest criticizer of Gerald Henderson on here, but I really have to say that the man is really starting to become a legitimate SG in this league.

 

And, Kemba has been impressive!

 

Big Al is Big Al. The dude is just a beast. Worth every dime we are paying him.

 

If we could only find a way to have three 2014 1st rounders + 2nd rounder + FA to this team. Damn, won't we be damn fun to watch next season.

 

Draft

(Charlotte's) Noah Vonleh, PF, Indiana
(Pistons') Zach LaVine, SG, UCLA

(Portland's) Tyler Ennis, PG, Syracuse

(2nd Round) Kyle Anderson, G/F, UCLA
 

2014-2015 Charlotte Hornets

PG: Kemba Walker / Tyler Ennis

SG: Gerald Henderson / Zach LaVine

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist / Jeff Taylor / Kyle Anderson

PF: Noah Vonleh / Josh McRoberts / Jeff Adrien
C  : Al Jefferson / Cody Zeller / Bismack Biyombo

Seeing the instant impact MKG had on the team, I may be starting to view him as a core piece.

He's a glue guy, that's one of the best defensive players in the NBA. He rebounds, steals, blocks, plays well in transition. He's got all the tools to be an elite level player. He's already elite on the defensive side with how much he helps team defense.

This was a surreal game to be at as there were Knicks fans EVERYWHERE.

 

My buddy and I didn't notice at first, but when the Knicks scored the first points of the game, the crowd went wild.  We looked around and noticed blue and orange peppered all over, comparable to when the Indiana fans show up in unison wearing red to support Cody.

 

We were cheering extra loud at points to upset the people around us, but it was almost like an away game for the Cats.

 

MKG really makes a difference on defense.  Big Al's shots were dropping and Kemba started up with the 3 shot.  It was a really fun game.

McBob is starting to look like the player he has been his entire career and not the gem we had for half a season last year..

 

our #1) weakness is at the PF position, #2) the three ball and #3) our bench.

    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.  
    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
