#2850389 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

Posted by teeray on 14 July 2014 - 04:02 PM

Attn: Hornets.

As a smaller market team, until you establish yourself as contenders, you have to take calculated risks to compete.

Stephenson might be a little crazy, but he is a guy that can take you from 5-8 in East to 1-4 in the East.

Once you establish a winning tradition, then you can become more picky as demand to join your team will increase.

Hoping to sign a bunch of fugging boy scouts or no one at all will keep us right where we are.

Stephenson is worth the calculated risk, even if he did perform the career killer red flag of blowing in someone's ear.

Get this poo done. Don't be pussies.

Point being, he won't know until Hornets want him to know.

Keep faith

Here is Bonnell just literally days before Hayward signing

@snbaker14: @rick_bonnell so we need scoring and indicated wed make a splash. Who's likely? Heyward, Parsons, Monroe?

@rick_bonnell: @snbaker14 Probably none of the above.

Still can't get over that if that kid is really only 15 years old that he has over 140,000 followers.

That is impressive for anyone let alone a kid

RE

He got this from Bonnell I think. He just tweeted him asking if Hornets were inretested and probably saw tweet from Bonnell from a about an hour ago.

But, he is probably right.

I'm not giving up hope yet though!! Not until he signs somewhere!

Again, right before Hayward showed up he said we weren't going to do anything in FA besides McBob and backup PG

He is probably finding things out the same way we are at this point

McBuckets...

... still in the 3rd quarter


Jumping off a bridge. Goodbye cruel world


#2849549 Interesting nugget right here......

Posted by teeray on 13 July 2014 - 07:43 PM

They are doing exactly what logic says they should've done. Not sign him yet. It just so happens there's a way they could commit him without tying any money to him yet, and in light of that information, they are doing what they should do, which is just another version of what I said I would've done.


Jeebus, this makes my head hurt

All I am saying, is if Stephenson does happen.... I am going to troll Bonnell right out of the business on twitter  ;)

 

 

Just kidding, I actually like Bonnell most of the time

No real reason to do this unless............

 

 

You know




#2849047 Hornets sign Brian Roberts

Posted by teeray on 13 July 2014 - 03:27 PM

More like $9 to $10

 

Just be illogical with me on this!!  Geez.  You are probably right that we aren't even interested, but that takes all the fun out of it.

Just my opinion but I think all these reports are being based off of the Sporting News report, which may or may not be true.

True but there are some Pacers beat writers who seem to also think we are a threat.

I don't hate Bonnell, I think he is going off of his gut. He did say we weren't going to do anything in FA except target McBob and a back up PG. Then a couple of weeks later we are signing Hayward.

Even the Hayward thing, other national guys broke the story, the Bonnell followed up much later saying he was visiting. He didn't know anything until national media broke the story.

Point being I think he is making an educated guess. He very well be right, but some of the National guys have better league sources than Bonnell, but Bonnell has access to whatever the Hornets tell him. Which right now may not be much.

In short, Bonnell may be right, but I am an optimist and want to believe there is something going on
