Ok...have to talk about Gelo joining Melo


Recommended Posts

I was doubtful at first but I'm coming around on him. I can see him and Bouknight serving as the heat-check Monk role by committee off the bench..

One of them should be able to score on any given night.. I think it would be rare for them both to be off - and it takes a lil pressure off of Bouknight to be at 15ppg guy that we lost in Monk..

Either the 2nd Martin bro or Richards will be cut to make room for him.. I think Cody brings proven ability to play D on the wing and it will be Richards who gets the boot

He looks better than book, for sure

His game is more complete than his brother. He may be a better defender than Melo at the moment.

I really don't think they were stressing "getting him the ball" because they already know who he is.

He really hustles on defense and offense if you ask him to.

I don't post here much (mostly Panther forum) but after watching some of the summer league games and some YouTube comments LiAngelo.  I think he's for real.

The Hornet Summer team was a bunch of players trying to show off.  There was little to no passing to the open guy.  LiAngelo consistently was TRYING to play team ball.  Go watch the videos of him during these games you'll see what I mean. 

Bouknight was abysmal.  Terrible shot selection, wasn't looking for the open man, turnover after turnover and did nothing to impress me.  I'm not worried though, once he gets to training camp he'll be reared in. 

Ball may not be a starter or even a major contributor but IMO he has the skills and toughness to play in this league.  I also would not look past the Ball combination.  LeMelo is amazing at finding the open man and big brother knows this.  Plus LeMelo knows when the ball is in his hand if LiAngelo isn't standing wide open for a three he'll be cutting to the basket.  Don't underestimate this combo. 

The videos mention that he can guard 1 through 4.  

I hope he makes the team.  

If they got all three Ball's what fun it would be.

Stick around bro. You belong. The Hornets forum is actually a better place sometimes.
