#2922216 Why Hornets should make move for Jeff Green article

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.

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?

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.

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.

Smoke made the right decision and is not racing today.

#2872334 Top 5 players at Each Position

Posted by pantherfan49 on 31 July 2014 - 09:20 PM

If you expanded it to a top 10 at each position, Kemba would surely be in there.

You guys are killing me here.

LS second best SG in the league. Kemba in top ten. MKG going to be dynamic once he learns to shoot.

All good players. All vastly overrated by Hornets fans.

That's impossible. There are no DBs on this team that are tall enough to bang knees with KB

#2858302 How Hornets matchup against Top Teams in East

Posted by pantherfan49 on 19 July 2014 - 05:29 PM

The takeaway from offseason delirium is this

Kemba >>> Chris Paul >>>>> Kyrie

PJ Hairston is going to drop 20 a game

Our 14/4/2.5 SG is worthless and serves no value

Our bench is every bit as good as the Spurs

Hornets are winning the East!

#2857777 How Hornets matchup against Top Teams in East

You could go with Hollinger's PER that had Kyrie 6th and Kemba 17th. I'm all about Kemba, but he's not better than Kyrie. Maybe healthier but not better.

17th is about right. I felt like he was right about average for nba starters last season. I think his ceiling is right at top ten.

The comparison with Kyrie Irving should be used to show that Kyrie is overrated, not that kemba is underrated.

#2857528 PJ Hairston Appreciation Thread

Posted by pantherfan49 on 18 July 2014 - 09:51 PM

So we drafted PJ to not shoot the ball?

PJ is going to put up 20 a game. Haven't you been reading along?

#2856777 PJ Hairston Appreciation Thread

Posted by pantherfan49 on 18 July 2014 - 11:09 AM

A successful rookie season for PJ would be one where we hear absolutely nothing about him. No news is probably good news with PJ.

#2855161 Trade Brewing

Posted by pantherfan49 on 17 July 2014 - 09:25 AM

i wouldnt trade MKG for Rudy straight up, let alone throwing in Hendo and our only other Center on the roster

Hendo is not an asset. I don't know why people can't get that.

In the nba, when you aren't talking about all star players, everything is relative to your contract. You are an asset when you are paid less than your production or when you have an expiring. You are not an asset when you are paid more than production.

Hendo is not an asset. He is overpaid and the only way someone will be willing to take him on is if we either give up something like a draft pick or we take on a bad contract in the process. That's why he hasn't been moved.

A guy like Jeff Taylor actually has more value than Hendo. Is Taylor a better player? Absolutely not, but his production to price metrics add up.

Gary Neal is much more likely to get moved as he has a much smaller contract.

We signed LS for 2 mil more per season than we are paying MW. Lol.
