#2860385 Some thoughts on Stephenson

Posted by MedellinHeel on Yesterday, 08:31 PM

I gotta admit, my knowledge of Stephenson was rather limited prior to this year / offseason. All I knew was that he was a highly rated prep player who until last year never really lived up to the hype. 


The past few days I have watched every Stephenson video on youtube and damn I was quite uninformed. This guy is a complete beast of a SG prospect. His handles, passing, defending, rebounding, finishing through contact, etc is all top notch. 


I honestly have a hard time thinking of better SG prospects in the NBA id rather have. Wade and Kobe are aging and have injury concerns. 


The only reason this guy doesn't average more points is because he is too unselfish. Stephenson imo can score or get buckets at will with his handle and array of moves. Not to mention creating dimes for other teammates. He was a bit overshadowed in Indy due to West and PG. I feel like here in Cha being a top option, he will average 18-22/5/5. 


I am afraid we are gonna be giving this guy a big long term contract in 1-2 years. Which wont be a bad thing imo. 


I was quite bummed we did not get Heyward, but now I am almost thinking Stephenson might just be potentially a better player for us overall. 


I can not wait to see him and Kemba in the backcourt together.

#2856182 Dem Lance Highlights.

Posted by MedellinHeel on 17 July 2014 - 09:18 PM

I got to say we are gonna have one hell of a fun team to watch this year. 


Kemba / Roberts

Lance / Hendo / Neal

MKG / Taylor / PJ / CDR

Marvin / Zeller / Vonleh

Al / Biz / J.Bach (hopefully) 

#2853630 Hornets sign Lance Stephenson to 3yr/27m contract.

I would be IRATE if I were a pacers fan right now. 

#2853016 TJ Warren

Posted by MedellinHeel on 15 July 2014 - 09:40 PM

Charlotte already has a pair of starting wings who can't shoot the ball. Warren would've been a terrible fit.


Not quite. 


Warren is a straight scorer regardless if he isnt a 3pt shooter. Something we do not have one the wing (not at the SF position anyways).

down by 30 at halftime.....


lol ewing and this roster is a complete joke. 


hairston is the only guy who can even remotely score. 

#2849857 Hornets sign Brian Roberts

Posted by MedellinHeel on 14 July 2014 - 06:17 AM

I guess some would prefer us not have a true PG on our roster at all? I'm confused by the fuss here. I'm sure if we really want Stephenson we can still find a way to get him.


When it comes to backups you need guys who can 


1) score

2) not turn the ball over

Vonleh looked a lot better but still his offense needs some work.


hopefully al can teach zeller and vonleh that old school post game

actually agree with the premise of this thread. 


just didnt need to add the extra incendiary jabs. 

#2848620 Hornets Sign Marvin Williams

Posted by MedellinHeel on 13 July 2014 - 05:27 AM

I do not think Hendo makes for a good 6th man. 


You need quick production from your bench. 


Hendo is not a shooter (so no getting hot from downtown). 


Hendo is not really a scorer. Usually takes all game to get his 12-16 points. 


He needs to be dealt imo. 

#2848391 Hornets Sign Marvin Williams

Posted by MedellinHeel on 12 July 2014 - 09:22 PM

Marvin is considerably better offensively than Mcribs. Not near the passer though. 


If Mcribs can get 5-6 mil than I suppose Marvin would command 6-7. 


A bit too much for my liking though. Wish we had an option on that 2nd year. 

#2847188 Vonleh observation / concern

Posted by MedellinHeel on 11 July 2014 - 09:39 PM

Who are some examples of players (bigs) who were slow, sluggish, and lacked instincts that developed them later?


I am not sure this is something that develops like post moves, jumpers, handles, IQ, etc. 

#2844913 Hayward agrees to sign

Posted by MedellinHeel on 10 July 2014 - 11:34 AM

We need to see / reach out to Curry and see what he is thinking. If it is possible to lure him to Cha id rather pay him than Hayward. 


If no Curry, than Hayward might just be the best we can / will do in the next few years. 

#2844664 Hayward agrees to sign

You even basketball man? Pretty well known fact that the 2 and 3 can and have been interchangeable in organized basketball.

Top 3 Seed


Id rather not sign Williams. 


Kemba / Roberts

Hairston / Bazemore

Hayward / MKG / Taylor

Vonleh / Zeller

Al / Bach / Biz 


Primarily go with an 8 man rotation of Kemba, Roberts, Hairston, Hayward, MKG, Vonleh, Zeller, and Al.
