We might win our first playoff series this year.

Recommended Posts

      I'm very impressed with the grit and resiliency this years Hornets team is showing.  Borrego as just turned out to be simply a fantastic hire.  I was skeptical about the Tony Parker signing initially, jokes on me.  The energy surrounding the team seems to be improving as we advance throughout the season.  We have a team that's been able to be competitive yet still a tad inconsistent.  I think we're starting to see some growth in our consistency level now however.  I think if the team can find a way to get to 3 or 4 games over .500 they may not look back.  

In terms of playoff seeding the 3rd and the 6th seed seem to be interchangeable in terms of the level of competition, and actually set us up better going into the second round.  Barring injury, I think this team will gel even more by playoff time, and we could be looking at the 5th seed.  If somehow we can see a little bit more consistent play out of Monk....we have a chance to change the way the Hornets are perceived this year.

I think we've got a realistic shot at the 6th seed. Anything higher than that would be surprising. Indiana may fade though with Oladipo out.

That was a tough shot by Lamb but if Kemba will try to find the open man in end of game situations instead of trying to take every shot himself its suddenly much more difficult to guard us in those situations.

Totally agreed...Kemba takes awful shots at end of game...usually covered by around 3 guys

This team is so much better without Dwight Howard.  Seems strange to say that but he was a chemistry killer.  I think we just keep this team together, let Monk mature and we have something here.  Monk is 20 yrs old.  Do not trade him...he will be great eventually.

    • You can look at this glass half empty of glass half full. Half empty. The o-line can't protect Cam and wasn't properly address in the off season like I wanted. Cam's body is breaking down, and we have poop backups. Greg's body is breaking down. We don't have a dominant DT like Kris Jenkins, and we don't have dominant DE like Peppers, so 4-3 won't be great. We don't have a dominant NT like Vince Wilfork, so 3-4 won't be great. Our secondary lacks a Josh Norman type DB who will make big play INTS and pass breakups. Our passing game might be spooky bad, like no complete deep passes for multi-game stretches. We face the Saints (SB contender), Falcons (solid team), and the much improved Bucs. Yikes. Half full. We have speed on offense, and speed kills. CMC's burst is nothing short of elite, and teams will have to scheme their defense to contain him. Moore and Samuel are play-makers, and add to that combo the intelligent and extremely talented Greg Olsen and you have enough weapons on offense to do well. Cam might just have a healthy season, and if he does, then the talent is there to win. The o-line just needs some time to gel as the season moves along, but the talent is in place. The d-line looks solid on paper, and our secondary should do better than last season with more pressure being applied from Burns and company.  I can be negative or positive.
    • If anyone here or anywhere doesn’t think Cam is close to retirement, go watch a lowlight reel of all the huge hits he’s taken over the years.
