#3161206 Should we resign Byron Bell?

Posted by pantherfan49 on 29 December 2014 - 03:04 AM

You guys are underestimating how much Bell is going to get paid this offseason.  Anthony Collins got a 6 mil contract and he finds himself on the bench. 


For BB, he isn't Getting 5 or 6 mil from our GM.  And Remmers is a much cheaper option at RT.  So my guess is that BB walks and signs elsewhere this offseason.  I'm guessing BB gets 4 or so mil a year, and Gett isn't paying that for a backup player.  


And kudos to him-- undrafted FA that has worked his way into a very nice payday in the NFL.

You know who didn't get their tickets



#3153245 Is your opinion of the Gettie changing?

Posted by pantherfan49 on 25 December 2014 - 08:32 PM

He's been handicapped with cap issues and Ron. I Don't know how you could ask for more out of him.

Hendo was hurt last year. That's one of the things that gets lost in the hendo hate. Hendo has been above 60% from the field over the past five.

#3135688 Hornets Losing Fans because of T-Shirts

Posted by pantherfan49 on 14 December 2014 - 05:21 PM

ehh. I think the shirts are stoopid stoopid but any fans that bails on the hornets because of this and not their shitacular play probably isn't much of a fan anyways.

#3130509 Will R.R do the inthinkable...start Dlo ?

Posted by pantherfan49 on 11 December 2014 - 07:39 PM

Ron is the kind of the inthinkable.

If he could coax Naka back to Carolina, that would probably be your starter at safety.

#3106395 Hornets vs. Trail Blazers Game Thread

The following players not on rookie deals have tradable contracts: Big Al, LS, Gary Neal, Brian Roberts, and possibly MW only because of contract length.

The following players are absolutely untradeable without taking on equally bad contracts: Kemba and Hendo.

There you have it. The Hornets need to upgrade both of the backcourt positions with a better shooter at SG and a real PG and transition MW out in favor of Zeller.

I hate that it took until Kemba got that extension before people critically looked at his play. He's the same player this year that he has been in prior years.

#3100660 Kemba

Posted by pantherfan49 on 22 November 2014 - 08:30 AM

It seems like he's figured it out as far as Biz and Max, but thats the only thing he has seemed to figure out as far as rotations go thus far. Very frustrating...



I'm a big believer in Hollinger's PER rankings.  Knock the methodology some for overemphasizing certain characteristics over others, but I think the general indicators are pretty good.  


These numbers should speak for themselves:


Bismack Biyombo, C 21.9
Al Jefferson, C 21.3
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 19.3
Noah Vonleh, PF 16.9
Gary Neal, SG 16
Kemba Walker, PG 15.2
Cody Zeller, C 12.4
Brian Roberts, PG 12
Jannero Pargo, PG 11.9
P.J. Hairston, SG 11
Lance Stephenson, SG 11
Marvin Williams, PF 9.3
Gerald Henderson, SG 8.8
Jason Maxiell, PF 6.1
Throw out Vonleh and Pargo's numbers because the critical mass of stats aren't there.  
Marvin and Gerald are turrible.  More Biz.  More Gary Neal.  Please come back MKG.  MW, GH, and Maxiell shouldn't see the court.  

#3100625 Kemba

Posted by pantherfan49 on 22 November 2014 - 06:38 AM

Kemba is around 10-12 on talent alone. He's a terrible decision maker, though. This hero ball in the 4th has got to go. He's not MJ and this isn't UConn. Just feed the big guy, it's not that hard.

Terrible decision maker he is and that's a disaster at the PG position. Your PG needs the highest basketball IQ on the team.

#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.
