Our court design is pure sex.




#2876368 David Aldridge says Hornets had third best offseason in the NBA

Posted by Dorian Gray on 04 August 2014 - 02:45 PM

 

THE SKINNY: Nobody got better bang for their buck this summer than the Hornets, who spent just under $47 million -- about $1 million more than Dallas did for Chandler Parsons -- to bring in Stephenson, Williams and Roberts, three players that will fill specific needs for an already-good playoff team. (None of that would have happened if Utah hadn't matched the $63 million offer sheet the Hornets gave restricted free agent Gordon Hayward. The best laid plans, you know?) Stephenson was an All-Star caliber two in Indiana last season, showing his improvement as a passer to go with his shooting and defensive skills. For all of his issues, and they are real ones, he was one of the few guys that competed in Game 6 against Miami in the playoffs, when many of his teammates mailed in their efforts. And he's just 23 years old. In Charlotte, his presence will definitely make things easier for Jefferson and Kemba Walker. Williams was coveted by several other playoff teams and is a veteran who'll balance the floor. Roberts played very well for the Pelicans last season, with a True Shooting Percentage higher than John Wall, Reggie Jackson or his now-teammate, Walker. Vonleh was a top-five pick on many Draft boards before sliding just far enough for Charlotte to be able to snag his incredible length and rapidly developing game. The Hornets were already a top-10 team in defensive rating, opponent field goal percentage and points allowed. With Stephenson and Vonleh teaming with the likes of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte could have the makings of a lockout, championship-caliber unit.

Man I wish the season started today.  These articles are getting me hyped.




#2860641 Bonnell: Hornets Are Not Pursing Shawn Marion

Posted by Dorian Gray on 22 July 2014 - 06:45 AM

Did he really tweet that the name change wouldn't happen?

 

He always seemed weirdly bitter about the possibility of a name change, and I could never figure out why.  Even other guys at the Observer like Sorensen would write these stories about what a good idea the change was, and how much the name meant to the community.  But Bonnell always just blew it off and acted like the whole thing didn't matter.  I never understood it.  (I'll add this was before the name change was made official...back when it was all speculation after New Orleans announced their change.)
 




#2855654 Cavs Now Offering Wiggins In Deal For Love

Posted by Dorian Gray on 17 July 2014 - 02:59 PM

Not only from an on-court perspective, but Wiggins will still be on his rookie salary for a few more years, which would allow Cleveland to put even more pieces in place.  Love will demand a lot of money after this year when he renews his contract.  I think you have a much better chance for long-term success by keeping Wiggins and those other young pieces.  This kinda smells like desperation.

He also had a failed - but wildly entertaining - recruitment of LeBron to Philly.

:goodjob:

 

Before he's even played a game he might be the most entertaining NBA player on Twitter.

 

And for a bonus, a tweet he sent to Drake after LeBron went back to Cleveland...

#2853689 Hornets sign Lance Stephenson to 3yr/27m contract.

Posted by Dorian Gray on 16 July 2014 - 08:47 AM

The Pacers forum is hilarious.  They're in complete meltdown mode.  "Lance sucked anyway", "This makes us better if anything", "I can't believe he'd go to a doormat like Charlotte."




#2853453 Jordan should get a lot of credit for the turnaround

Posted by Dorian Gray on 16 July 2014 - 06:32 AM

He takes buckets of poo from the media and casual fans ("LOL KWAME BROWN!") but the last couple of years, he's really figured it out and become a genuinely good owner, I think.  He jettisoned some of the "yes men" that had always held the team back, he surrounded himself with better basketball minds, he's spent money on great talent.  And of course he put in the money for the name change, which has completely revitalized basketball in North Carolina.

 

This is the most optimism that has been around a Charlotte basketball team since maybe Baron Davis was here.  So kudos to you, MJ.  Helluva job.

Mcbuckets with 16 in the 1st half

 

Must've shot 16 free throws.  I was assured by the Huddle he was so unathletic he couldn't get his shot up against even NBDL competition.
