In Topic: Noah and PJ to have limited roles.

25 July 2014 - 01:24 PM

How do I know? Well, lets just say it is an educated guess. Good shooter who isnt afraid to let his shot fire a ton a game. You do the math. Not even mentioning he has had a per or ppg of around 20 every year prior. Dude is a scorer plain and simple. 

 

How can a prediction be pawned off as a statistical fact? lol That is impossible.  Ever considered you just take or misread someones opinion as a statistical fact? 

 

It's not even worth arguing with you because you lack the ability to think objectively, yet for some reason I keep trying to make you understand.  It's exhausting.

 

The fact is, you DON'T "KNOW" that PJ is going to score 15-20 ppg.  Nobody to my knowledge has the ability to see into the future, and PJ hasn't played a single NBA game yet.  I will accept your explanation that it is an educated guess, if you'll back off on your conclusive statements that "PJ should start because he'll get you 15-20 ppg" because frankly, you don't know that.  To this point in PJ's career, we have seen him play well in the ACC, the D-League, and relatively well in the NBA Summer League.  Success in those 3 leagues absolutely does not guarantee success in the NBA, as the level of the competition in the NBA DWARFES those other 3. 

 

Fact is, PJ had moments of brilliance in the summer league, but he also missed a LOT of shots.  He jacked up shots like his life depended on it.  Maybe it's because he felt he needed to carry the team, but that won't be the case during the regular season.  Al & Lance (and sometimes Kemba) will likely carry the scoring load for this team.  Clifford will not allow PJ to take 25 shots a game. 

 

Like I keep saying... I am rooting for PJ!  I really want him to be a solid contributor to this team, but when you've got guys like SuperJ saying things like "He was the best player in the draft" and you're telling me that he's an automatic 15-20ppg player before he even laces it up one time makes it VERY difficult to take anything you say seriously.  Show a little less homerism, and a little more objectivism...it'll add to your credibility.

Thompson is a 6ppg career scorer. 

 

So no. 

 

PJ will get you 15-22 ppg if given starter minutes while being a threat from downtown. 

 

How do you know?  The guy hasn't played in a single NBA game.  He scored a decent amount of points in summer league, but he didn't shoot a high %.  Granted, maybe the defense was keying on him in a way they won't in regular season games (because we'll have Al, Kemba, Lance, etc out there) but I've noticed that you have a tendency to make predictions and pawn them off as statistical facts.

I said he should be by mid season if the coaches care about balancing our starting lineup. 

 

But we all know coaches do not play the better player and/or players that balance the starting lineup. I know first hand as a UNC fan. 

 

It is a FACT PJ is a much better deep shooter than Hendo. 

 

Hollis Thompson is a much better deep shooter than Hendo.  Does that mean he should start over him if he were a Hornet?

Way too early to make a statement like that. Wont know for sure until mid season and that is with PJ getting enough consistent minutes to make a proper evaluation. 

 

Wait, wait, wait...

 

I thought with your self-proclaimed superior player evaluation/scouting abilities, that it was a FACT that PJ was going to be our starting SG....?  Could it be that our coach, who is paid millions of dollars to make decisions like that, could possibly know more than you?  I hope PJ works out for us.  But I can't fault Clifford at all for limiting his role this season.
 


In Topic: Hornets Sign Marvin Williams

Marvin will be great. Mcbob was ass. You guys liked him. I hated him until he elbowed Lebron

 

Some of you UNC jock-sniffers are so biased it's hilarious.

 

McRoberts was a HUGE part of our success last year.  Marvin will be good, I'm sure.  But "Mcbob was ass" is an ignorant statement.
