#2867478 Is Kelvin hurt? <update, "bone bruise">

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

So we drafted PJ to not shoot the ball?

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

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.


#2852334 Boozer?

Posted by pantherfan49 on 15 July 2014 - 06:45 PM

Boozer at likely 3-4 mil for a year >>>>>> MW at 7 for two years. Only plus to MW in that scenario is that he can play some SF.


#2845608 PJ's Agent not certified

Posted by pantherfan49 on 10 July 2014 - 09:00 PM

Id rather play dleague or overseas and get paid than have to deal with going to school, tests, papers, and the like.


You do realize that he didn't have to deal with tests, papers, and the like while he was at UNC?


#2845531 PJ's Agent not certified

Posted by pantherfan49 on 10 July 2014 - 08:00 PM

PJ has yet to get a DUI (that i know of), get drug charges, gun charges, assault charges, etc. People are making kaddus over nothing.


I'm not sure if people followed this but it's only because of police incompetency or special treatment that PJ hasn't been charged with serious crimes.

Someone in his car did toss a gun out the window after being blue lighted by a cop and he had enough drugs and paraphernalia on him to land him in jail for some time.


#2838042 NBA Offseason Trade/Free Agency Thread

Posted by pantherfan49 on 02 July 2014 - 01:00 PM

Orlando dumped afflalos salary to overpay Gordon. That's how you tank.


#2837322 We need to look for a STARTING PG.

Posted by pantherfan49 on 01 July 2014 - 07:11 PM

To the post about Kemba comparing to Ty Lawson. Lawson is the better player. Takes 3 less shots a game. Averages more assists and gets to the line more often.

Lawson is a few years further into the league though.

I just vomited a bit writing that about a tar hole.


#2834922 Hornets offered Henderson, 24th pick to Magic for Afflalo via ESPN insider

Posted by pantherfan49 on 29 June 2014 - 06:57 AM

Hendo has some major limitations in his game. He is only effective when driving to the basket and getting to the FT line (which he is quite good at). Problem is that he doesn't fit in well when you have Big Al in the paint and a ball hog at PG.

Hendo should be the focus of the offense when the second unit is on the floor. He shouldn't be running with the 1s


#2829696 Hornets willing to part with #9 for Afflalo

Posted by pantherfan49 on 25 June 2014 - 08:47 AM

I think the price tag to trade for AA keeps going up. It seems everyone wants him.

Oh and to an earlier post in this thread, if we pay Kemba 10 mil per, somebody should be fired.


#2822370 Are PJ and Hood here for a 2nd workout?

Posted by pantherfan49 on 17 June 2014 - 02:02 PM

6'4 point guard with great passing and ball handling skills. Quick first step on offense, would be a great backup for Kemba I think.


Upgrade over Kemba in a year or two.
