#2889064 Henderson Highlights

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 13 August 2014 - 02:24 PM

Constantly stealing money from the city of Charlotte.

 

LoL @ your blind hatred of Hendo because of where he went to college.  Nobody should (and I assume nobody does) take anything you say on this subject seriously.  Fact is, the stats don't back up the crap you're spewing.

#2864453 Noah and PJ to have limited roles.

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 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.




#2862937 Noah and PJ to have limited roles.

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 24 July 2014 - 10:24 AM

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?
 




#2844751 Do you have any old or embarrassing Panther items?

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 10 July 2014 - 08:03 AM

I saw a guy tailgating before a game (a couple years ago) wearing a Rae Carruth jersey.  I yelled "He didn't do it!" and he responded "Damn right!"




#2842847 Josh Gordon Drove PJ's car in DWI Arrest

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 08 July 2014 - 12:53 PM

And nobody take this personal. But I think you guys are secretly hoping PJ fails. Ya hope he fails and hope Hendo succeeds. That's disgusting on the first degree.

 

Why is it "disgusting" for a fan of the Charlotte Hornets to hope that Gerald Henderson succeeds?  He has been nothing but a class act for the organization, he plays hard, he doesn't get in any sort of trouble, and he's awesome in the community.  Also, he absolutely LOVES being in Charlotte.  Your statement is absolutely ludacris.

 

I don't think anyone here truly wants PJ to "fail" as you put it.  I think anybody & everybody who is a REAL fan of the Hornets hopes that our 26th pick comes in and produces right away, helps us win games, and has a long, successful career in Charlotte.  I think some people here (myself included) were initially against the pick due to his criminal history and low moral character in the past. I was willing to give PJ a pass on it all when he seemed so heartfelt in his press conference about learning from his mistakes and starting over, clean.  But now, almost immediately, PJ gets charged with assault & battery on a 17 year old.  Now it just makes it harder to believe anything he says.

 

I'm hoping PJ TRULY learns from his numerous stupid decisions (let's not call them mistakes... they were decisions he made) and grows into a productive member of the society (much less the NBA) because like it or not, he is a Charlotte Hornet, and I want him to succeed.

 

I just don't know where all the Gerald Henderson hate is coming from.  You Carolina & Duke fans take this WAY too seriously, and 90% of you didn't ever pay a dime of tuition to either institution.  Re-evaluate your lives, please.




#2842693 Gordon Hayward to visit Hornets next week.

Not an opinion for those of us who know basketball and how to evaluate players. 

 

Sorry your not on that level yet. 

 

PJ > Hendo

 

So far I've seen PPG as your criteria for evaluating PJ.  I'm glad to see your evaluation of players is so complex and deep. lol  Maybe you should give MJ a call and snag a front office job.

 

You guys are hilarious!




#2842662 Gordon Hayward to visit Hornets next week.

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 08 July 2014 - 09:39 AM

Averaging 15ppg with a few 30 point games is not exactly dominating. Additionally, being better than Hendo isnt dominating either. 

 

 

What you did was pull back on the hyperbole a bit, because "Oh man, he's gonna light some teams up!" doesn't scream "He could realistically average 15ppg."  It's OK... we all do it from time to time. 

 

You did it again saying he'd be "head and shoulders" better than Hendo.  How in the world can you make that statement?  (I think I know why...) But Gerald Henderson is a very solid defender, drastically more athletic than PJ, has proven he can score in this league, (PJ hasn't proven anything) and has had several productive NBA seasons.  Gerald will be fine and will play many more years in this league.  At this rate, we're not even sure PJ will make it to game 1.




#2841548 PJ Hairston punched a high school kid tonight?

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 07 July 2014 - 07:55 AM

PJ Hairston is a scumbag, I've said it from the beginning.  I know the NBA isn't filled with choir boys... so if he can play, I'll be ok with it.  But hopefully everyone now (UNC homers as well) sees that PJ is a low-character guy.  He's a liability and he hasn't even played a game yet.  Jesus.




#2839212 So we all agree Hendo can't be on the roster this year?

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 03 July 2014 - 11:59 AM

Henderson is a good player.  He'd be one of the best backup SG's in the NBA.  He has a great mid-range game, plays great D, hustles, and has CRAZY athleticism.  If he accepts less $ and doesn't expect to be "the guy" then I say we keep him.




#2835657 Five cities you recommend when foreigners to visit the U.S.

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 30 June 2014 - 08:37 AM

I don't know why everyone says New York City... it's loud, dirty, and nobody speaks English.  NYC is the definition of overrated.

 

I'd say my top 5 would be...(In no particular order)

 

Charlotte, NC

Charleston, SC

Nashville, TN

Seattle, WA

San Diego, CA




#2751406 Falcons Wanting to Move Up For Clowney

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 25 April 2014 - 12:13 PM

Clowney is NOT THAT GOOD.  He was invisible in many games.  He will be an average DE in the NFL.  Both of our DE's are better than Clowney.
