#3087572 Another "suck it" game to Kemba haters...

Posted by pantherfan49 on 15 November 2014 - 06:53 AM

He shot the ball well.  But he didn't dish it well.  


Hornets scored 103.  Kemba had 4 assists.  The offensive ball movement still has to go through someone besides your point guard.  That's never good.


And FWIW, Kemba's guy beat Kemba.  Bledsoe was +6 on the game, Kemba -2.  


Even when the Kemba apologists think they have it, they don't.

Guys, just as soon as we surround Kemba with some other players like PJ, Marvin Williams, Lance Stephenson, and an improving Gary Neal, his numbers will go up.

16 assists for the hornets. Kemba with another of his usual performances shooting under 40%, getting torched by his man, and dishing out 3 whole assists.

Well guys, that's three really bad contracts on the team now. But this one is on the books quite a bit longer.

#3052077 Kemba and Hornets agree to 4 years/$48 million extension

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.

If you are going for longevity, go with a Hendo jersey. He's basically untradeable and here for the long term.

I also wouldn't be surprised if we now see a civil suit.

Yep. The family is talking about "doing the right thing for Kevin." Which apparently means suing someone for their son's idiocy.

My concern is the overpay for Kemba.


Look at the article... other GMs are quick to point out his deficiencies.  I'm hopeful that with Cliff doing the same that the Hornets realize that they either need to pay Kemba his market value or let him walk.  If you overpay, you end up with Hendo on your roster and you can't move them.

Should have drafted a PG in the first instead of another SG. Kemba has a lot of positives but his negatives put the ceiling for this team around 50 wins. Another PG on the roster would have either hurt his negotiating position or shown the hornets they can do better and allow kemba to walk.

Holy hell had no idea nazr was still playing.

Saw this on another board but to his credit he has made it easy for those that purchased his old jersey to easily modify it to make it his new jersey.

All three of them

I would do a first and PJ in a heartbeat.

#2890610 Henderson Highlights

Posted by pantherfan49 on 14 August 2014 - 05:34 PM

Hendo doesn't suck.

Hendo is just overpaid relative to his level of play. He does do some things well. But his weaknesses are also the same as those in the 1-3 spots for the hornets, so he just further exacerbates the problems the hornets have with outside shooting.

Matt Moore

Moore didn't sign with the Panthers out of college iirc. Seems like he was a Dallas signee.

#2889467 Steph Curry interested in coming home?

Posted by pantherfan49 on 13 August 2014 - 08:41 PM

We will have given kemba a stupid, untradeable contract by that time and the team will be absolutely hamstrung at the point for the next five years.

If you guys think Hendo got overpaid, just wait on the kemba deal.

#2885807 Give your end of season seedings

Posted by pantherfan49 on 11 August 2014 - 06:37 AM

Outside of McRoberts, the entire starting lineup is intact with some more additions, and the role players and bench warmers lost are being replaced with younger, higher-upside guys.

Agree with that.

My point was that I see many on this board claiming that kemba and Zeller are going to improve and that's going to win us some games--which I agree with. But same could be said for the young players in WAS.
