#3059679 Welp, not the division leader anymore....

Posted by cbarrier90 on Yesterday, 11:19 PM

This game was the one glimmer of hope I had that maybe this season would mean something. That disappeared as soon as we failed to take advantage of another great first half defensive performance.

 

Time to make some legitimate cuts to the roster to loosen up some salary cap money in the off season and get a coaching staff that puts an emphasis on the quarterback play and can keep up with the pace of the new offense-first NFL.

My biggest takeaway from that game will be the crowd. It seemed like we just chanted "Let's Go Hornets" at random times just because we could again. I haven't heard such unbridled enthusiasm at a sporting event in awhile. In that sense it was every bit like a playoff game. The players knew it was a must win, which contributed to that rocky start.

The rebrand in the arena is fantastic. I wish it wasn't so crowded on the concourse so I could have walked around and taken in all the changes.

Lance's dunk out of nowhere changed the complexion of the game. It's a shame you didn't see it live.

Said it already but you can tell we didn't get the reps we needed in preseason. Unlike the NFL, what happens in the NBA preseason is a good indication typically of how your play as a unit is going to look.

Credit to Marvin for hitting those big shots but he and Al are huge defensive liabilities if the perimeter juggernaut we were expecting with Lance and MKG doesn't show up. That fourth quarter was vintage Clifford basketball and a thing of beauty so as long as they've knocked the rust off and Steve has had time to coach them up I'm not too concerned going forward.

Voice still isn't 100 percent.

We won't stop you if you want to elaborate. How was it on the front line no shiit? We want dirt. Did they play Mony Mony?

Mony Mony is right after Kemba ties it in the second video. What is its significance? Was that a late-game Coliseum staple?


#3054597 still hatin on Marvin Williams?

Posted by cbarrier90 on Yesterday, 01:49 AM

Are u kidding. Lol. If we switch Mcbob for Marvin we lose that game tonight. I agree Mcbob good pass a little bit and move the ball around. But he wasn't that good and couldn't shoot 3's or anything else really all that good. Marvin Williams had a helluva game and was one of the biggest reasons we won. Mcbob will not be missed

 

McBob was one of the biggest reasons for our success last season. If you watched last season you would have seen that. Basically what Lance does at the 2 is what McBob did at the 4 albeit with much less explosiveness and excitement.

 

Please do not turn this into a UNC-Duke flame war because that's not what it is and not what it should be. I'm excited that Marvin filled his role quite nicely and hope that continues because we need the spacing he provides desperately.  He and McBob are two completely different players in terms of skill sets, and that's okay.




#3054552 Where Can I Get A Lance or Al Jersey?

Posted by cbarrier90 on 29 October 2014 - 11:46 PM

Neither are on NBA Store...

 

Because you should get a Kidd-Gilchrist jersey.

#3054536 What a game, could not have asked for more

Posted by cbarrier90 on 29 October 2014 - 11:29 PM

This team. Just when you want to get rid of them they reel you back in and make you love them again.

 

The crowd was absolutely incredible. Easily topped even the best Bobcats playoff games.

 

You can tell this team is rusty and didn't have the best preseason because of injuries, but what a way to set the tone.

 

So glad I got tickets.

The flying dunk by Byron was awesome though haha.

Maggette hurt on the bench was exciting.


Never forget the inspiration that was Ben Gordon.


#3053195 That lottery fuged us out of multiple championships

Posted by cbarrier90 on 29 October 2014 - 02:10 PM

I'm not biased to my team unlike most. Anthony Davis is better than Al Jefferson


I took it as he would like to see that matchup, not that Al was better.

Also that matchup happened last year and wasn't pretty. Anthony Davis at center is not nearly as good as Anthony Davis at power forward. Asik was a huge get for them (albeit at too high of a price.)

Vucevic had 23 rebounds in that game so my major takeaway is neither the Magic or Pelicans can shoot.

I'd let Hope Solo beat the poo out of me anyday.

Good luck tonight guys, ill prob flip between your game and the raps game before the main event!

Warriors and Kings!


Could always use a Hawks loss. Don't mess it up for us.


#3052099 Kemba and Hornets agree to 4 years/$48 million extension

Posted by cbarrier90 on 28 October 2014 - 08:21 PM

To give everyone some perspective on how bad this is... look at Steph Curry's deal. It's 4 years, 44 mil.

It's the exact same deal that Lowry got and Lowry is a substantially better player.

You completely ignored the context in which Curry signed that deal. He was coming off a major ankle injury and the Warriors gambled that he would be back to normal and be a great value. They gambled and it paid off, probably more than they could have hoped for.

Also since Curry signed that deal the market has changed considerably and will change again once the cap increases.

Kyle Lowry is approaching 30. Kemba is much younger and is not "substantially" worse.

When is the last time we re-signed a draft pick to a contract past their rookie deal? Emeka????

Can't embed tweets but Marc Stein tweeted it just moments ago.

Love it. Will only look better with the TV deal in place and gives us an expiring that can be moved if we want to pursue Steph.

I believe Kyle Lowry got the same deal from the Raptors.

Hey guys I got a simple question that doesn't deserve a thread. I'm looking at some front row tickets of the upper deck. How do you get to the upper deck? Stairs? Ramp? Or escalators?


Escalators.
