#3087676 Another "suck it" game to Kemba haters...

Posted by mj4life on 15 November 2014 - 10:29 AM

Kemba is not a natural point guard & most of us who follow the game knew this even before we drafted him. Lance on the other hand is a more natural distributor & will become the defacto point guard IMO.

Hairston does bring some energy similar to Dell back in the day. Most of his shots look good but at the same time most of us realize he needs to improve in a lot of areas to become a consistent impact player


#3070535 Do you think we are better off with lance or Gordon Hayward.

Posted by mj4life on 06 November 2014 - 10:14 AM

I know we can't change it anyways but I was super excited when we offered a max to GH. I
knew his game and thought it played in perfect.
PPG RPG APG
19.2 6.6 5.6

That stat like looks pretty damn nice

I'm not gonna say I'm against lance but up to this point he's really disappointed not only me but the fanbase. Atleast scoring wise.
PPG RPG APG
6.6 10.0 5.6
Now those assists and rebound numbers are pretty damn great for a sg but those ppg are not cool.

So would Gordon Hayward fit this team better. Would we be better off. I'm Not ready to say we are. But I wished we coulda got Hayward. But I think lance can start scoring more we will be pretty great. But what's your thoughts

They both fit fine. Lance has never played with a big guy like Al or a guard like Kemba, so we have 3 guys who need to touch the ball to be effective so it will take some time for them to sort out the best way to play off each other. I like Hayward but I love Lance's relentless approach to the game. Lance is not & may never be a 20 plus scorer .


#2865876 When is the schedule released?

Posted by mj4life on 26 July 2014 - 06:19 PM

Sometime in August. The TV schedule is being reworked to account for FA movement(the Lebron effect)


#2861039 Some thoughts on Stephenson

Posted by mj4life on 22 July 2014 - 01:07 PM

I prefer Stephenson to do most of his damage inside the arc. The main area I see he needs to do better is get to the free throw line more which might not be a issue since he will no longer have West& Hi Bert camped in or around the lane


#2855741 Cavs Now Offering Wiggins In Deal For Love

Posted by mj4life on 17 July 2014 - 03:33 PM

I make this deal if I'm the cavs. Irving & Lebron will get most of the shots & touches do unless Wiggins is a good spot up shooter he won't see the ball much. Love's game complements those two better& he gives them a presence in the paint


#2853674 Explain to me: Why Lance makes the Hornets that much better.

Posted by mj4life on 16 July 2014 - 08:37 AM

Lance is a triple double threat on a nightly basis, gives us another shot creator, can run the half court pick & roll offense & plays good defense. He has some issues but no one questions whether or not he shows up ready to play


#2853425 Hornets sign Lance Stephenson to 3yr/27m contract.

Posted by mj4life on 16 July 2014 - 06:18 AM

This is a win on every level, we got better at a reasonable price & left space to be flexible in 2016 which could be a monster year in FA along with the expected bump from the new NBA TV deal


#2839573 Lance: it's down to LA and Charlotte?

Posted by mj4life on 03 July 2014 - 04:49 PM

The Hornets are active in free agency, the only players signing contracts are mid level & players who get what they want from their current team. You won't see much happen until the Lebron 3 & Menlo contracts are settled


#2831024 Hornets Court Reveal Thread

Posted by mj4life on 26 June 2014 - 09:33 AM

I feel the combination of the new logo,buzz city campaign along the new unis & court have helped make the Hornets rebrand a home run. Now let's do the same tonight & during free agency


#2819487 Rod Higgins Stepped down.

Posted by mj4life on 14 June 2014 - 06:58 AM

I might be looking at this the wrong way but it appears to me MJ is starting to find his groove as a NBA exec. Most observers have felt MJ always hired "his friends" & not the best people to run the team. He clearly feels Cho is better suited for many of the basketball operations duties


#2630921 PJ Hairston. DRAFT HIM.

Posted by mj4life on 25 January 2014 - 07:00 PM

Hairston as mid to late 1st round would be fine by me. I think he moves up the board once he works out at the combine & individual teams


#2276961 Why are we leaving the plan?

Posted by mj4life on 03 July 2013 - 05:25 PM

you have to use both FA & the draft to build a solid team IMO. Indiana is a good example of this by drafting well & signing key free agents when necessary, the key is to not  sign contracts that keep you from making moves.




#2049004 Cam has taken the next step

Posted by mj4life on 16 December 2012 - 06:18 PM

it doesn't hurt when you run a more traditional offense, utilize his strengths on bootlegs & things like that.


#1882999 Terrell McClain waived by Panthers

Posted by mj4life on 02 September 2012 - 07:44 PM

kearse IMO was the most productive interior lineman during the preseason. he got decent pentration at the 3 & also held his ground when double teamed
