#2860919 Hornets Sign Marvin Williams

Posted by thatlookseasy on 22 July 2014 - 11:08 AM

 McRoberts was the better overall fit, which makes Williams' overpay all the worse because you probably could've kept McRoberts for a million less...unless he just wanted to leave.


No, we couldnt have kept Mcroberts for $1 million less because he didnt want a 2 year deal.  Mcroberts signed for about $9 million more than Williams if you're keeping score


This deal was clearly structured to leave the team flexible, so (ideally) 2 years from now we will have Vonleh and Zeller taking all the minutes at PF.  If neither of those guys develop, then clearly Mcroberts would have been the better deal.  If they improve like expected though, its gonna be nice not having an aging Mcroberts getting in the way of their development still on the hook for 2 years/ $12 mil


It was a slight overpay, but the other PFs on the market cant shoot 3s.  Which is important for spacing when you've got Big Al in the post and MKG on the wing

#2855941 Cavs Now Offering Wiggins In Deal For Love

Posted by thatlookseasy on 17 July 2014 - 05:26 PM

I tell you who I would rather trade- Kyrie.  I have no interest in sacrificing all my flexibility so I can pay an injury prone PG whose game has shown minimal improvement $18 million/ year.  Hes played 10 more regular season games over the past 3 seasons than Dwyane "I dont play back to backs" Wade, and thats not including his time at Duke.


Pull a 3 way trade where you give up Kyrie and get Love + one of the mid-tier PGs like Conley, Teague, Dragic, or Ellis (who make like $8 mil)

#2855918 Cavs Now Offering Wiggins In Deal For Love

Posted by thatlookseasy on 17 July 2014 - 05:12 PM

I mean, the Cavs with Love are absolutely better than the Cavs with Wiggins- he is just too young to come in right away and play like an All-Star, we saw that last year at Kansas.  And my god, Love is about as perfect a complement next to Lebron on offense I could possible imagine.  His shooting would stretch the defense past their breaking point, and his post game and passing are very underrated.


But why make this trade now?  You have the best trade offer on the table right now, and as long as the Warriors stupidly refuse to include Klay in their trade offers you will still have the best offer in January or February when the trade deadline is approaching.  Unless the Wolves are calling you up saying "Klay is on the table and unless you offer Wiggings we are trading Love today" I dont see why you dont see what you have with Lebron + the young guys

#2841511 Kris Humphries in play for Hornets

But, this is interesting... why are we being linked to any other 4s if we're certain that McBob is coming back?


McBob may be looking for a longer contract than we are prepared to give out. 


I think we need a veteran 4 to help out with the rotation this year, but I'd rather not sign anyone to anything over 2 years (when both Zeller and Vonleh should be ready to play big minutes)

Clearly Udonis Haslem is the real face of Miami

#2836119 We need to look for a STARTING PG.

Posted by thatlookseasy on 30 June 2014 - 03:12 PM

Kemba is a bad team point guard. Takes too many shots. Isn't a strong distributor. Needs too much of the basketball to make his points. How many NBA teams have won anything with a PG like Kemba starting?


If your PG is taking more shots than anybody else on your team you either have a bad team or a bad PG. Just about any NBA quality starter taking the number of shots that Kemba took would have been good for 20 a night. His shooting percentage was well below average, but by all means we should look at his PPG numbers to determine his value to us.


Interesting hypothesis.  You know there was a PG who led his team in shot attempts in these playoffs (it wasnt Kemba)


His name was Tony Parker

#2836045 Chris Broussard: Hornets going to make a strong run at Stephenson.

Posted by thatlookseasy on 30 June 2014 - 02:33 PM

I doubt Chris Broussard actually has a source on that, but a lot of people have speculated about it and I absolutely agree that we should go after him.  Players this young and talented rarely become available as unrestricted free agents, and Indiana will have a tough time keeping him and staying under the tax line.  We may not even have to overpay


He's a little out of control on the court at times but players tend to improve on that as they gain experience.  I would love to add a guy with his competitiveness and ball handling ability (we really need someone else who can take the pressure off Kemba at times). 


Zach Lowe had a good article a few weeks ago about his upcoming free agency


#2832914 No.9 Pick : Noah Vonleh

Posted by thatlookseasy on 26 June 2014 - 11:04 PM

The idea behind drafting Vonleh right after Zeller is

1) BPA

2) There are plenty of minutes available for both right now, Vonleh is very young and wont be playing huge minutes from day 1.  There are 48 minutes in a game at PF for them to split and Zeller can possibly get more minutes backing up Al at C


If only one of them pans out, we've got a starting PF and a good backup at the 4/5.   If both turn out to be starting level talents, maybe you have to trade one, but thats a good problem to have. And by that point, Big Al will be getting older and may be playing fewer minutes.  In 3 years or so we could have a big man rotation with Vonleh/ Zeller/ Jefferson where each guy plays about 32 min/ game


Not looking good for Biz though, he is gonna really need to prove something this year or he is gone

Why draft PG smart when we have PG kemba?


Cause Smart has the size to guard SG, plus we need another ball handler.


Moot point now though

They emailed a bunch of authors that endorsed AGW and surprisingly they all said they endorsed AGW. Well that settles that.


No, they emailed the authors of every paper, it just so happens that nearly every scientific paper written on AGW supports the conclusion that humans have a big influence on AGW (though quite a few took no position, but those arent included in the 97% number).


Look, the level of climate sensitivity is absolutely the subject of debate in the scientific community (which has rather large implications on what will happen in the future/ what we should do about it).  The existence of AGW is not

#2828385 Obama could be impeached!

Posted by thatlookseasy on 23 June 2014 - 09:31 PM

So Bush personally went down there and tortured the prisoners? Wow, didn't know that. Now that Obama has released them, if they go and kill Americans and who's fault will that be? One has already said he is going back to the war front. Obama will be responsible. Plain and simple.


Well, according to the reasoning in your first sentence, that would be... the guys who took them out of their cells?  Or maybe the pilots who flew them out of Cuba?


IDK, your logical progression is atrocious

#2823918 CBS Sports: What can the Hornets do at #9?

Posted by thatlookseasy on 18 June 2014 - 07:17 PM

Orlando has outlandish expectations for trading Afflalo.  They should have traded him last summer or at the deadline, but reportedly kept asking for 2 first round picks.


I seriously doubt we can get him for less than the 9th pick, which would be way too much for a 1 year rental (hes gonna opt out this summer).

Did they ever find a specific cause for colony collapse disorder?  I've heard a lot of speculation (particularly about pesticides) but havent seen any conclusive studies on it
