Miami and Indy are bit better than the Hornets IMO, though it is close. kemba needs to take a step forward this year like he did last for the Hornets to work themselves into contenders in the East.
Not sure about Indy. Losing Lance will have a huge impact on their record next season. Lance was probably their best player for most of the season. PG13 lack the killer instinct that Lance gave them last year. We would've probably beat them or at least, taken them to game 7 if we had been the no8 seed + a healthy Al Jefferson.
Can't classify a guy who has been injured necessarily as a reach.
Yes you can. He was a raw, project prospect from a small school who should've been a 6th- undrafted, but was taken in the 4th rd. I know that Barrett Jones has some injuries himself, but gah damn I would've been okay with Jones over Kug. Jones was a top college player, polished, and could played all 5 positions on the line.
