#2853070 Bonnell now saying Hornets are players for Lance.

Posted by d-run on 15 July 2014 - 09:55 PM

Just put a big number out there and tell him offer is leaving when you do. Don't give him chance to shop it

If his market is as dry as some say he won't be able to refuse

As far as we know the only offer he has is from pacers for under 9/year. I'd offer around 10.5-11

Maybe a sign and trade with pacers for hendo and a future pick?

I'm glad I don't have to listen to Clyde Drexler call many games

#2848879 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

People bash Bonnell, but the bottom line is he is right more often than he is wrong.

It's his attitude that I dislike, but that doesn't discredit his credibility.

We just have a bunch of fickle fans that are just dying to get their panties stirred up about something.

If he was nicer I wouldn't have a problem with him, but his smug attitude really rubs me the wrong way.

Yeah I can see this completely. His responses to fan questions are usually pretty snarky, but I feel like his actually reporting gets a bad rap. We could have a lot worse beat writer

He was also stupid to say that he thought Lance Stephenson would end up on the Hornets in that first tweet, then coming back and saying the opposite in that last one. If they are showing "no interest," why would you even say the first one?

What? He says he doesn't think Stephenson would end up with hornets in both tweets

He was wrong about Deng, as we have shown interest in him.

He was wrong about not pursuing any big free agents because we went after Hayward right after that.

He was wrong about Sessions.

2 of those he wasn't right or wrong about. One was just bringing up something from the past (Varejao and Landry) and the other was just him saying Utah will match, which about 50 other people were reporting at the time. Your post proves nothing.

As far as I know we haven't offered any type of deal to deng or sessions. And he didn't say we wouldn't go after any big free agents, he said we wouldn't land any.

I just think it's funny that this entire board is bitching about not signing anyone (other than MW) and also bitching that Bonnel said we wouldn't.

Reminds of how everyone used to bitch about Gantt's negativity and then we got stuck with Person

#2838445 Chris Broussard: Hornets going to make a strong run at Stephenson.

Posted by d-run on 02 July 2014 - 06:09 PM

I'm on my phone so I'm not gonna post a link, but Matt Moore of CBS just reported on twitter he turned down 5 years 44 million from pacers.

So 10/year is probably the lowest we could get him for

Wait, there wasn't one order the ENTIRE day that included sweet tea and mashed potato at two different KFCs in Jackson MS? That is the most unbelievable thing in this entire story

#2833933 Hornets Summer League Roster Updates

Posted by d-run on 27 June 2014 - 09:44 PM

I was just trying to figure out when we could sign UDFA. I hope we can land a decent pg since we didn't keep any that we drafted.

With Carson,Kane,Burton,Kirkpatrick, and Craft available I don't see any reason why we won't at least sign one of those guys for our back up or 3rd string pg.

CJ Fair, Jabari Brown, and Laquinton Ross could be good prospects to land but I don't see us getting any of them. Andre Dawkins would be nice to have on the summer league. He can shoot threes which is what we need.

Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle

I would love to sign Burton. I think he could make the roster as a third pg.


Posted by d-run on 23 June 2014 - 08:38 PM

I don't think he will either, but I'm 100% certain he will be a difference maker in the NBA, and likely a BIG scorer and above average defender.  He will be THE STEAL of the first round, simply because he isn't going in the lottery.
So, my hope is that we either move up a few spots from 24 after taking Lavine at 9, ORRRR, we trade back from 9 and pick up something extra in the process and still somehow net Hairston.
If we get Lavine, I'll be happy, but I'll be a LOT HAPPIER if we got Hairston.


I would love to move up into the mid teens to nab PJ. Maybe 24 and 45 to get somewhere around 16-18?

I mean, I really like PJ too. If you think he's the best player, and he'll be gone by your next pick, why not take him at 9? They would take a lot of heat (locally anyway) but if he pans out it won't matter

#2789156 NC Senator send snarky, condescending reply to teacher...

Posted by d-run on 15 May 2014 - 08:40 PM

Apparently he's running completely unopposed in the next election... the democrats didn't even put anyone up.


I live in this guy's district. When researching who to vote for in 2012 I came across this question/answer article in the local newspaper with Dr. Curtis (he is an optometrist) and his democratic opposition. He won in a landslide even though he didn't even answer half the questions. This is why he is running unopposed.



#2740198 The ACA will cost less than projected and cover 12 million uninsured this year

Posted by d-run on 15 April 2014 - 04:03 PM

If your story is true it sounds to me like the company was using ACA just as a scapegoat to strip benefits.

This is basically what is happening at the company I work for (in the top 20 of the Fortune 500). Everyone that is full time is being forced onto an HSA insurance and off of the traditional copay type of insurance all because the ACA is "forcing" them to. Everyone that is part time has to work under 30 hours a week. We have to hire new employees at around 9 dollars an hour with the promise of 15-20 hours a week and no benefits all so they can save a few bucks by not paying for health insurance. I'm sure you can imagine all the great applicants we've gotten with that offer
