And I promise every game I attend.. Or as long as they let me stay.. I will be trashing Batum with every vocal cord I have.. If he has to be here stealing money he won't enjoy the home games..

LOL. I think that is a bit extreme, personally. He will definitely hear you in what will likely be an ever more empty building.

At the end of the day, the Bobnets made a bad bet on a player they thought was going to ascend to elite status, when in fact he has basically remained the same player his entire career.

No he actually gotten worse. 

Batum is averaging $292.6K a game. Thats fuggn stupid 

Well his last year in Portland was arguably his worst year, so that is probably par for the course. His production has dipped overall for the past two seasons, but his averages remain pretty close to what he did in Portland. 

Really, regardless, he didn't deserve that contract then and he doesn't deserve it now. It is arguably the worst contract the Bobnets have ever handed out.

You just have to hope they accidentally back into a good player with a top 5 pick. If you get enough top 5 picks, the odds are that you will eventually get an elite talent. 

I would agree for most teams.  But, when our last Top 10 picks have been

Frank Kaminski...Noah Vonleh...Cody Zeller...MKG...Kemp’s Walker...DJ Augustine...Brandan Wright...Adam Morrison...Raymond Felton

odds don’t matter.  The Hornets find a way to screw out up

I mentioned this last year and got bashed for it. I knew the franchise was being dumb. I am always open for a GM job. Call me MJ.

There is a lot of difference in picking in that top 5 and picking in the 6-14 range. We've only had 5 top 5 picks in our history but we were 0 for 5 on getting an elite player. But, as I said, if it keeps happening, eventually we will just accidentally get an elite player.

who knew that when kemba said he wanted to win he meant he wanted to lose in 6 in the 2nd round two consecutive years while being called the n word by boston’s finest before being traded by ainge to the suns?

dont blame him at all for leaving but to choose boston over the lakers and mavericks is baffling. there’s “wanting to win” and there’s wanting to win. he’ll see all of the hype and none of the titles in boston. they weren’t near good enough with horford and kyrie. kemba can’t offset the value lost. even if they somehow kept horford it’s at best a wash. but im sure he’ll be far more willing than kyrie was to force feed hayward so i can see why ainge and stevens want him.

Probably unlikely to happen in the arena but, yeah, Boston is pretty rough for that kind of stuff. Have you been up there before?

Have not been in Boston but I am sure that you can find those people anywhere and even in CLT. Boston is a sport city with past African Americans superstars 

Yeah, go up there and hang out sometime. It is generally worse than a lot of major cities in this country outside the South. 

But, let's not derail the thread here. It makes no sense just based on winning alone.

Yeah you can find those people anywhere but Boston's the only place that every major sports teams plays a video with players from the pats, bruins, Celtics, and Sox saying to treat everyone equal and we're all one and nothing else will be tolerated. 

If you gotta say these things on the jumbotron before sporting events then it's somewhat of an issue.

This.

That pretty much seals it if true.  The only way we can give him that is if we go into the luxury tax.  And MJ has already has stated he will Not pay the luxery tax.

 

Its embarrassing.  This team couldve gotten something for him (a lottery pick) And gotten rid of a bigger contract (was reported today that Cavs wouldve taken Marvin off our hands for Kemba).  But we didnt accept.  Now we lose him for nothing.  Still handcuffed to those contracts.  With probably the worst roster in the league without him.  With the younger guys still a Long ways to go being groomed, including this years 1st rounder who theyve said will spend time in the G-league.  

This team is a dumpster fire right now

This team has been a dumpster fire for a decade. Nothing new.

brown has shown no growth entering his 4th year and tatum regressed which would be bad even if he wasn’t dollar store kobe. there’s whispers that stevens wanted to force the offense through his uh...3rd option? 4th option? their biggest free agent signing in years appears to be all but ready to bail asap. then you have ainge, the biggest snake in the league.

anthony davis refused to play for them and he’s definitely not alone. boston is a mess and if sports media didn’t crave access to ainge then there would be a much different public perception of boston

Man some of us got killed a few months ago for saying that they hornets were painting themselves into a corner and would have to give kemba whatever he wants. Even tho the smart business approach would've been to move him last year for pieces. 

But now everything I thought would happen has and its ridiculous. Being a nuggets fan I've seen a team compete, trade their star, retool and it not work, tear it down, build thru the draft and now have one of the best young rosters in the NBA ontop of waiting for MPJ and whatever bol bol can give us. 

This poo all starts at the top and until that changes the only way the hornets will be good is by accident. Sad but true.

Boston would be a cool place to live except for the people and the weather
