In Topic: Future Splash Brothers in Charlotte - Curry, Hairston ?

24 April 2015 - 01:23 PM

I have to disagree somewhat. Now, if you want to go back to pre-draft and college, then it did indeed cost him. Had he not made the mistakes he made then, he would've been a lottery pick and likely would've came in wherever he went, expected to start and/or play big minutes.

Now, if we exclude that, last season, Clifford was even quoted early on raving about how talented PJ was and how he did everything asked of him, and did it right... Said he deserved minutes but they were deep at the wings, AKA Clifford-speak for, "I'm a biased asshole for veterans."

After that, and continuing to get sporadic Pt was when we started seeing and hearing about him missing practices and such.

I've said before, I'm not saying it's right, but i don't blame him for being frustrated with it. Clifford is an idiot.

I'd anything, I'd say the two points I made are interchangeable, as it's hard to say which is the cause and which is the effect.

 

 

You make fair points.  

 

I am probably biased because I coach right now, but I hope he is sending a message that playing time is earned and that it is a precious thing.  Especially to show that playing in the NBA is a privilege, not a right.  

 

I do wish Cliff would play rookies too, but I think it there is a method to his madness.

As far as PJ, two things:

1) he needs a fuging coach that will actually play him so he can gain confidence and a rhythm.

2) needs to be a PROFESSIONAL, and understand what that means.

If those two things happen, I won't put a cap on what his potential is. I've said before that I could see him developing into a Harden-type scorer. Dennis Scott, fwiw, compared him to Mitch Richmond. The talent is there.

 

Switch 1 and 2. 

 

His failures so far are much, much more do to his lack of professionalism. 

 

His lack of professionalism is likely a big part of his lack of playing time.

Curry leaving the Warriors for the Hornets would be like Cam leaving us for the Browns.

 

 i agree it is very, very unlikely. 

 

 

It would be much more like Cam leaving us and going to the Falcons.
