#2861208 D.Williams...props to a good guy...on and off the field

Posted by Stroupe-a-loop on 22 July 2014 - 05:18 PM

Why does he deserve benefit of the doubt?


Because waiting to see what happened is better than talking poo about a veteran in his seventies.


#2861042 X factor: Zeller

I agree, Marvin Williams probably starts with Zeller playing a big roll. If Zeller comes along quickly, he could move Williams out at some point this season, though.

Thanks! But other than that, I wear a black #59, my wife has a teal #1 and our daughter wears a pink kids Panthers #00.


Well played. Those will probably work out for a long time.

Well, I would say this one :rock: :

Hah, oh yeah, that is a good one. Congrats on that.


#2857671 How Hornets matchup against Top Teams in East

Posted by Stroupe-a-loop on 18 July 2014 - 11:41 PM

That's a solid argument but are the PER's just based on points?


It's a good offensive stat. It paints a limited story defensively, but when you get into defense there aren't a lot of great metrics.

In any event, I'd say Kemba is a better value, but not a better player right now.

Finally, Kyrie is better than Kemba based on what? You've yet to answer the question with any substantial argument.


You could go with Hollinger's PER that had Kyrie 6th and Kemba 17th. I'm all about Kemba, but he's not better than Kyrie. Maybe healthier but not better.


#2853371 Hornets sign Lance Stephenson to 3yr/27m contract.

Not sure on the year breakdowns but did we save enough to bid on Boozer?

I think, if you introduce Boozer to NC barbeque, you get him for the vet minimum.

I was skeptical as well with no link but.....




Did it get scooped by yahoo sports in french. Because that is pretty classy.

No way! Are those the real numbers? Because that's great!

Damn, they redacted our history. That's cold.


#2849693 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

Posted by Stroupe-a-loop on 13 July 2014 - 09:22 PM

Between the summer league rims and Bonnell's negativity we had no chance of signing Stephenson.


I'm sure he was also offended by Brad Hoover's "I have a Lance in my pants" commercial. The universe is a cruel, shooting guard-less, place.


#2849646 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

Posted by Stroupe-a-loop on 13 July 2014 - 08:56 PM

I don't hate Bonnell at all, but it would be nice if he elaborated rather he is opining or if from sources. This FA period it seems like no one from organization is talking to him. I wonder if he has talked to Lance's agent.

He may be right, but some of our moves looks like we are saving some space for something. Maybe we are just reading too much into it.

But it seems he is guessing


I think our job, as fans, is to read too much into everything.

that's his job. You either answer with a serious response or don't tweet back.


I think his job is to write for the paper.

Bonnell is the biggest tool of any NBA beat writer in the country. I don't understand why some of y'all actually like him.

He almost never breaks news about the team until after some random national person does. When something does happen and he writes a blog about it he then complains on Twitter about how much his job sucks and ruins his free time. He's never upbeat or positive, he's condescending and always gives the answer that sides on the very worst case scenario.

He should consider a different job, it's obvious he hates his current one.

I mean, he's answered the same question a million times. He didn't say "go fug yourself" or anything. People are just pissed that he doesn't say "maybe". Hope he's wrong, but I don't get why people keep going back to him about it.

I had a massive brain cramp. Sorry that you had to right it out in kindergarten for me to understand it lol.


Haha, it happens. The rules are so complicated in NBA trades that having over 100 posts in this forum should get us college credit for a business degree. The occasional brain cramp is to be expected.
