Hornets Gameday Thread

All the squandered games and big blown leads early in the season coming home to roost.  Fire Borrego and get us a coach with balls that will play the guys who give us the best chance to win.  Let the young hungry guys compete, not Batum who doesn't care, or Marvin and his broke ass jumper, or Cody and his small-big man deficiencies.  Goddammit I'm pissed.

And you, Mitch Kupchak "we don't need to make any trades, we trust in our vets to get us to the playoffs".  Guess what asshole, since giving Bridges, Bacon, Graham, and Frank more minutes, the team has gotten off its ass and competed.  No one running this team has a damn clue.  Kemba is the only veteran I trust and he's about to break someone's bank.

Not a chance Detroit loses to New York... if they beat Memphis on Tuesday we'll come up a game short.

Memphis has won 12 of their last 17 so maybe they'll get one.

Batum and Mkg have just flat out sucked, ever since they have been in CLT...get rid of them both

cody and Marvin are good players, just need bench minutes

Yep... Orlando is going to clinch tonight... only one spot left (8th seed).

The Hornets will need to win out and Detroit will need to lose one of their remaining two games.

Hard to believe....but still possible

I decided to look at Memphis' roster to gauge their chances against Detroit... I want to vomit.

Justin Holiday, Delon Wright, Tyler Zeller, Tyler Dorsey, Ivan Rabb, Bruno Caboclo, Jevon Carter, Chander Parsons, and Julian Washburn...

I apologize, I looked at the wrong dates... the Grizzlies have won 4 of their last 12.

This season is over.

Let's be real, Clifford was never a bad coach...

He favored veterans and that pissed everyone off but apparently so does JB.

When given a solid roster Clifford produced. I'd argue that this Magic roster is the best roster he's coached outside of the 15-16 Hornets team that apparently just overachieved.

I'd take Vucevic, Gordon, Fournier, Ross, Isaac, and Bamba over everyone on the Hornets roster not named Kemba or Bridges.

No, sadly I do not wish this on the team. I thought they should have tanked from the beginning. Which I still believe they should have and if they miss the playoffs it proves my point of being stuck in mediocre purgatory. Just because I believe the team should have taken a different route does not mean I hate the team. :+)

    • She seems a little too happy for a group who did this to our ancestors...   Native Americans owe reparations to the descendants of their slaves.  I'm not saying Natives aren't owed anything by this country.  They have received benefits, and are owed more.  They deserve full usage of their lands, and how they govern it is their business.  Overall, their claims shouldn't be conflated with our claims for reparations.  Two separate issues.
    • Teddy was good in college, so much so that I remember a few Huddlers mentioning "tanking for Teddy" the season before he came out. And, it's not like his winning ways haven't translated to the NFL, regardless of whether someone believes he only did it because he had a good team surrounding him. At some point, one really has to concede that you're not going to take a trash team to the playoffs, regardless of who you are. Unlike Trent Dilfer who simply didn't have to do much, Bridgewater actually had to win a few games. His defenses were very good, but they weren't historical. But, I can understand why you'd think of Teddy as a game manager. That's not necessarily a bad thing in all cases. We almost one a Super Bowl with a glorified game manager (and Delhomme was one in my opinion), but this brings me to the next point, which is sometimes that has a lot to do with the HC's and OC's philosophy as well.  I have questions about Teddy, believe me. But I have less questions about his ability to get some wins than whether or not his decidedly small frame can hold up to the rigors of the NFL. I mean, he really had a catastrophic injury. If he hadn't his career just might be on full showcase as opposed to a reclamation project. I'm not going to count it against him because he played on decent defensive teams, including one as a rookie, but then got hurt in the third year when many QBs show marked improvement and start putting it all together. If anything, he didn't have to be as proficient or efficient as he was, particularly in his sophomore season, considering the relatively little experience that he had. The other two seasons were pretty much throwaways where he didn't get any credible playing time and rehabbing both physically and mentally, and people not really believing that he could resume any semblance of success (which probably had to do moreso with his injury than anything else). Bottom line: He took the reigns and stayed the course for one of the best in NFL history. So, yeah, I'm not sure he can get us to where we want to ultimately go, but if he stays healthy, I wouldn't bet against him. His career is the epitome of disjointed, but injuries do that to even the Cam Newtons and Andrew Lucks of the league who had considerably more time at the helm.  This year (or next) will tell us a lot.  
    • The thought is that the upper end QB's in this upcoming class are "safer" bets. Even after Lawrence and Fields it does actually look like a strong QB class, depending on who declares.
