In Topic: Average age of our likely starting lineup

21 July 2014 - 07:51 AM

There was a lot of Cho bashing in the beginning of free agency by local fans and there will be always MJ bashing in national media but the truth is that this has been we have done an excellent job building for the future ever since we started the rebuild. After our playoff loss to Orlando, it only really took 3 years to make the playoffs and turn into this young exciting team

In Topic: Hornets sign Lance Stephenson to 3yr/27m contract.

Indiana brought Lance in and "took care of him" from the get go.    Lance needs stability.  


Now he has money, probably seeing himself as "the man" on this team...



You all will find out real fast what Sir Lance is all about.    If things go south .........


and don't kid yourself.. .  Indiana is a vetern team.    They went to the ECF 2 years in a row.    And they run "a very tight ship" ..   Lance thinks he is a "superstar" ..     And he will try to prove it in Charlotte.   


I can't wait to see how this unfolds...


We all appreciate your concern about our new player and coming over to our team forum. I find it funny that it seems all Pacers fans wanted Lance back but now that he decided not to come back, it's going to be addition by subtraction for you all. 


Well we already know about the negative stuff about Lance bc our Hornets beat writer is likes to talk about the worse things from this transaction. 


So how about you talk about some of the ways he positively affected the game in Indiana bc Bird and Co wouldn't have offfered him a 5 yr deal if they didn't want him.

I would be surprised.

With all of P.J.'s issues, I would think that the organization would want to keep close tabs on him. You can't do that if you ship him of to Maine (or wherever our D-League team is).


Didn't think about that part...surprisingly and that is a very good point :)


But I guess we will see! I did get ya on the having enough money to sign Lance in the Marvin Williams thread so we will see who wins around 2.

I highly doubt P.J. is going to the D-League.

One of Henderson or Hairston might be able to play some small forward depending on the matchup.


The way Clifford likes his Veterans I wouldn't be shocked if he did, but the big caveat is IF we don't move Hendo/Neal. 


I still think that Cho finds a way to move one of the 2 to free up the rotation but I can see the Hornets slow playing the develop if they don't find a deal that blows them away.

I'm not sure how I feel we should approach the depth situation at SG now. For so long, we have lacked scorers and outside shooters. Now we have Lance, Neal, and PJ all at the two guard. Hendo provides great D but isn't all that efficient offensively. So, do we keep all four guys or move one? Then do you risk not having enough scoring or giving up a great defender?


PJ goes to the D-league if nobody is moved. 


Neal is the easiest to move bc he's an expiring but he is our outside threat so I doubt they do this. 


Hendo is the fan fav to be moved but I see him being our 6th man off the bench bc I don't think we can move his contract. 


2nd Unit

PG- Roberts

SG- Hendo/Neal

SF- Taylor/Hendo (wouldn't be surprised to see him and Neal at the same time)

PF - Zeller/Vonleh 

C- Biz
