I've said it before and I'll say it a million more times.  If we had a legit big man, imagine the better looks we'd get from three playing the inside out game.  If we had someone in the middle our opponents actually considered a threat, this team would be so dangerous.  But instead we have soft, no defense Zeller, and no hands Biz.

 

But, hats off to Melo, he's must-see TV and he has earned that starting spot.  I guess Borego didn't know what to do so he started all three guards to not make waves.  Sooner or later he'll have to choose the sixth man.

LaMelo Ball led the way for the Hornets, erupting for a career-high 34 points on 14-of-27 shooting, four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and zero turnovers in the loss. Ball is the first Charlotte rookie to record a 30-point game since Walter Herrmann on April 14, 2007 and the youngest in NBA history to do so with five assists and no turnovers (previous: Stephon Marbury).

34 points from a rookie AND everything he has done previously. This is your very own Kobe replacement and thank God you didn't trade him away this time around.

GO HORNETS!

After last night I’m 100% convinced that LaMelo will ultimately bring the Hornets their first championship and consistent playoff success for as long as he’s here and healthy. I trust Kupchak to continue building around him. We may need another year or 2 but this kid is so fuging good. Also he’ll help us get other veteran role players to want to come here and join forces, which is essential in this modern game. Despite the loss I couldn’t be more pumped about this team’s future.

I thought Vernon Carey Jr was NBA ready. We need a rotation of three solid centers like the Bulls three headed monster back with MJ. Nick Richards? Time to throw them in there, especially Carey Jr.

No offseason and Summer league hurt both of them having a chance to contribute this year...

He's playing Melo a bunch now....

Maybe the more logical answer is that the young bigs aren't ready.

Probably and Zeller is playing well.  They have been in close games as well so yeah, no real opportunity atp.
