#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


#1879931 Official Cut Thread

Posted by mj4life on 31 August 2012 - 01:54 PM

Stanford > Munnerlyn

stanford played better than munnerlyn for the most part this preseason but captain is more physical corner & the coaches appear to think he fits better with the scheme they want to implement


#1874269 Brandon Hogan IR?

Posted by mj4life on 27 August 2012 - 02:06 PM

the coaching staff probably still believe he can help the team & placing him on IR allows them to look in another direction for know. even if we cut him next year he still only cost a 4th round pick


#1850740 It's looking more and more likely that Captain Munnerlyn will start again...

Posted by mj4life on 08 August 2012 - 08:23 AM

alot of factors could improve munnerlyn's overall play, most have already been mentoned but IMO he struggles most when he plays off wr's instead of crowding them at the line of scrimmage.


#1841335 Rivera and McDermott comment on how much they will use the 3-4

Posted by mj4life on 31 July 2012 - 09:47 AM

That is true but keep in mind that with a fire zone blitz the DE is occasionally asked to drop in short zone coverage in a 4-3 so it isn't like he hasn't been doing it already.

CJ will drop into coverage at times he might line up on either side of the line or he might slide down & play some 3 tech but he will be chasing the qb most of the time since that is what he does best & what we wrote him the big check for. i think riveria & mcdermott are looking for creative ways to utilize the talent we have & give oppents something else to prepare for more so than switching the defensive philsophy all together.
