Kemba is out "for a while" says coach Steve Clifford. MKG taken out in OT to let LeBron lead the heat to victory. Looks like MJ isn't the dumbass I thought and is finally ready to start chasing a high draft pick. With Kemba out we will probably not even need to try to lose on purpose anyways so its a win win. Lets go!!!!!!!!

Hate it for Kemba. Time to watch a long string of losses and finally get the tank going. Get a top 5 pick along with two other 1st rounder.

The question is, how many teams can we "out-tank?"  I am pretty sure Milwaukee and Orlando got us beat but pretty sure Boston, New York, and Cleveland will surpass our win total.

 

That leaves Philadelphia and about four teams out West (who will have much tougher schedules).

Read where big Al may need offseason ankle surgery. I think it is time for that to really start bothering him to where he needs to go ahead and have it done to be ready for next year. I also think MKG needs to have a minor setback from his injury and Kemba have a tough time getting better from his twisted ankle. MJ and Cho gave the impression they wanted to win but injuries got the best of the team. Therefore the NBA doesn't punish them for an intentional tank during the lottery drawing. All of this with the rebrand should net the Hornets a high draft pick.

There's no doubt in my mind we can "tank" to the 5th worst or so record with ease. We're a bottom 10 team as it were, with Kemba. Well, we just lost our best player, so, let the tanking commence. Even though it shouldn't be hard to out suck others.

Should have been the plan from day one. Cho should have drafted Noel. Noel could have recovered and worked out this year. Lose enough to get a top 3 pick plus adding in the 2 firsts owed in a great draft. Start the new Hornets era with a bang. Imagine a lineup of Kemba, PJ Hairston, Jabari Parker, Noel, big Al. Plus you'd have another 1st rd pick mixed in and cap space. I'd think about buying league pass to watch.

I was so excited when Noel fell to us.  Draft night always pisses me off.

Even if we wanted to win we will be losing.

Bobcats website is saying Kemba's only expected to miss 10-14 days. Second degree ankle sprain.
