Lamelo's first Triple Double

Problem is that we have a dumb head coach that is trying to have Ball earn the starting job. The offense is so much better when Ball is in the game. 

I'm okay with bringing him along man. Do you see how bad the bench is? We need some semblance of a spark when the bench guys are in, and he is that spark.

The team is leading in assists because of Lamelo. I like Hayward but I rather build a young team. Signings veterans players to big contracts have not been a positive here in Charlotte. Hayward has been playing well. Just my opinion.

The team is not leading the league in assists per game just because of Melo.  Graham actually leads the team.  Hayward 4+ at forward is 20th in league.  The Hornets are building a young team.  4th youngest in fact.  With an all star caliber player, cornerstone PG, above average shooting guards and 2 young forwards with upside. All while being one of two teams still under the salary cap. Feels like the Hornets are doing it right this time. If talking through the draft, then Hornets have sucked there as well for many years. Might have got it right this time.

His postgame interview after the triple double was top 5 trending on YouTube. I don’t remember the last time anyone brought the hornets that much attention.

I don't think it's ever happened.

It's been awhile.

I don't understand this thinking about not signing someone like Hayward.  It sounds like a trust the process mentality that hasn't worked.  Hornets draft and develop for 3 or 4 years and you will see the good ones jump first chance.  A 3 or 4 year contract for a legit all star type like Hayward is huge.  Slight overpay per reports, sucked to stretch Batum.  But Hayward is everything Hornets need these next 3 or 4 years. He chose a non destination for all star caliber players.  Team is Leading league in assists, 8th seed right now, and all the young guys are flourishing in their roles. The team can still get solid youth in the door. 

It's a young core but the Hayward signing was perfect for this team.  You need a veteran that can help the younger guys when things get tough.

As the season progresses you will most likely start seeing the Hornets on national TV more.  

Mitch Kupchak is doing well and I believe he'll be smart and not strap this team with players and poor fat contracts.

It's amazing people forget the original Hornets. 

Probably because we never won anything. Never made it past the semis with the muggsy teams or the baron davis teams.

Yeah but if you were a NC native, it is hard to forget how much fun those teams were and how raucous the games were. I am not sure professional basketball will ever be that good in NC again.

    • Would it have to be either/or? If Pitts and either Sewell or Slater were there at #8, everybody here is voicing opinions as to why one is better than the other. Why not have our cake, and then go ahead and eat it, too. Take Pitts at #8, then trade our 2nd round pick, plus our #1 in 2022, to Denver, and get the OT we need with their #9.  (If you experts in swap values think that's not enough, add to it until it is.) Balls to the wall, boys.  If you all think Sewell/Slater are #1 picks this year (and they are), then they're equally worth next year's #1.
    • Well, that was kind of dumb since the scenarios are completely different. You don't need a mediocre vet to mentor another vet. Likely means probably, odds on or possibly. Since you didn't link the article, likely because it makes no sense after the Darnold threa, I have to make an assumption which is very plausible since there was a ton of discussion about us drafting a QB at 8 or trading up until SF made their trade. Time to read. I said worst case was that we would only save $8M by releasing him. $18M new cap hit minus $10M guaranteed that we'd have to pay on release equals $8M. Again, worst case is we only save $8M by releasing him and having to pay the guarantee. Way more than a zero chance of the last scenario. If we can trade Teddy, that scenario happens, period, simple as that. Amazing that you think there is no chance that Teddy gets release or traded after we made a trade for Darnold and committed to paying him in 2022.
