Pros of Indiana 

 

- established team chemistry

 

Cons of Indiana

- being locked in on a longer term term deal that maxes you out at $8 million and places you, years later, in a weaker free agency market.

 

Pros of Carolina

 

- a shorter contact that gives him just enough time to clean up his image and hit the free agency market in a summer where he can earn much more than $8 or $9 million a year. Unlike a 5 year deal that was pro Indy, bad for Lance.

- a team where he can be the #1 option and get to show off his skills on another level. He was never going to get that chance in Indy. Too make cooks in the kitchen.

- a fresh start, a way to leave the past behind.

 

Cons of Carolina

 

None really, if he behaves and comes to play


In Topic: direct tv appears set to offer Sunday ticket without a satellite subscription

17 July 2014 - 10:55 PM

DirecTV has offered this for some time. I use to get it at my old place because satellite TV was against the association. Somebody told me that before you had to explain to DirecTv why would couldn't possible get DirecTV yourself because I think they can't force people who are unable to get satellite to not watch NFL. I doubt some customer support rep making $8/hr really cares all that much! haha

 

I just got a new place a few months ago and had DirecTV installed, so obviously I'll just watch it on that this fall.

 

I can tell you from experience that as of last year, the online service was spotty. I remember lots of games where it couldn't connect or would time out. I also liked it better when you could use the NFL Sunday Ticket App for PS3 (was the only reason why i bought the darn system) and then last year, they said you could only access it via their website or app. I just liked accessing it from the ps3 and not having to give up my laptop.

 

 


In Topic: Explain to me: Why Lance makes the Hornets that much better.

17 July 2014 - 09:54 AM

Bottomline is, Lance brings that "never say never" attitude which we lacked last year. We had talent, but no real leadership. Al is awesome and one of the best, but is like a 24/7 wrecking a ball that never stops.

 

This team needs a face to it's franchise and Lance wants to be that and can be that. I believe in Indy, there were too many cooks in the kitchen and although Lance felt he was the best player on their team, he had trouble standing out. In Charlotte, he gets a chance to be "the guy" and will gladly take on that role.

 

To me, Lance is like Steve Smith. He can be a lot to handle at times, but when he can control himself, he is the spark your locker room desperately needs.

In Topic: Jordan should get a lot of credit for the turnaround

16 July 2014 - 10:17 AM

A lot of critics of pro sports, don't think players and owners can learn from their mistakes. Jordan made plenty of mistakes while he was with the Wizards (Brown being #1) and early on with the Hornets (Morrison comes to mind), but he is slowly improving himself by understanding his limitations and what other people bring to the table. I think, in the beginning with Bob Johnson, MJ hired a lot of "yes sir" guys and Cho was the first guy he hired who had this solid background of making smart moves... Jordan could convenience himself to a sit back and learn.

 

I love all of the changes we're making now, because the team agrees on what sort of club they want to build and are building it. I also think a lot of it has to do with the Hornets brand. This brand change is not only an opportunity for the city to embrace NBA basketball again with a fresh start, it's also a fresh start for MJ to say the bad-MJ was the Bobcats MJ. The Hornets MJ gets it.
