Hornets Gameday Thread

James Borrego is not a NBA head coach. I doubt he gets fired but there isn’t really anything else I need to see.

If we lose out we will be around pick 8-12 with a few extra percentage points of getting insanely lucky and jumping into the top 3.

It’s better to just go ahead and accept we will be picking 11th again so we can draft another guy that will barely play.

YAY! Another wasted season, which will lead to another wasted season when we are finally forced to tank. Instead of having one bad year and maybe some hope, we are going to have a bad season to pick a MEH player and tank next season. This is a so simple to see, and yet nobody in the Hornets' front office picked up on it. Mitch is obviously in a bad spot, so I tend to blame him less than I should.

Dell and Eric were still encouraging optimism at the end, saying "this isn't it.  Season's not over."

Man, I'm tired of the cycle.  We do this every year...  cheering, hoping, and pulling for our team to win, knowing they aren't very good.  And we get to the end, still hanging onto that thread of playoff hope, only for games like this to throw just how insultingly bad our team actually is in our collective faces.  And, then once we realize we're really just spinning our wheels on a treadmill of failure, we have to re-live all of those emotions all over again with the now added reality that we just screwed ourselves out of a high draft pick.  Smh...

After hearing him talk after he was hired, I really thought Borrego was different.  Nope.  Here we are again...  giving PT to guys based off incumbency rather than merit or potential.

Playoff hopes ended with last miami game in CLT, actually ended when we choked away the game against the clippers in CLT a few weeks ago

we scored 15 pts in Q4 today...yet another dismal showing in crunch time

26-83 from field 31%...7-36 from 3 pt...just pathetic 

monk played 4 minutes. Bridges played 10

and Miami is not that good

if we could have gotten a couple of first rounders and some players in a Kemba trade we should have pulled the trigger

our team is an embarrassment...our players just totally suck

Yup.  It's a sad, harsh reality.

James Johnson, Waiters, and Whiteside looking like actual players, while guys like Marvin and Batum throw up wide open bricks.  And I know a lot of people like Lamb, but I'm just not a big fan...  when the momentum starts shifting in the opponent's favor, he seems always willing to help with settling for step back threes.  I believe Kupchack said after the trade deadline that Lamb was our second option...  welp, that sums up our team in a nutshell, I guess.

And as you said, still not playing our young guys.  I just don't get it.

Man Cho fuged us hard. I feel like I’ve said this 100 times but when he gave that contract to Batum it should have been the green light to trade picks for vets that the coach will actually play. Imagine this team with Lou Williams instead of Monk the past few years. Clifford would still be our coach and Cho would still have a job. We got cold feet and decided the first rounder was too valuable and never pulled the trigger. Such a fuging dumb decision.

It's time for the hornets to commit to a blow up. Every year we end up in the worst possible position in the NBA, right outside the playoffs and at the end of the lotto

Maybe the vets are playing because of MJ. It's repeatedly done to all the young players drafted. No matter who the coach or gm is. Only constant is MJ

Down 1 to the Sixers with 20 secs left, and bridges and lamb get caught ball watching...  leaving a wide open corner 3 and the Sixers go up 4.  Smh...  this team.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
