    You thought that was a good game? I tuned in to the overtimes and that was some of the worst basketball that Iíve watched since I stopped watching Wake.
    We're going to be good again.

    Both teams were gassed, they had been playing their asses off for a full game and 2 OTs. Plus the Trae Young chuck and duck Hardenesque style is generally not aesthetically appealing and leads to some strange looking defenses.

    The Hornets seem to be the kings of "good losses".

    Yes that is literally their goal and current strategy. Develop their young players and have them gain legitimate NBA experience in competitive games, but also get a reasonably high draft pick that they hopefully hit on similar to their last 6-8 picks. If they were trying to win they would be playing Batum and wouldn't have shelved/let go Marvin Williams and MKG. Those guys are, currently, demonstrably better players than several of those who are currently getting heavy minutes, but given their ages the upside and development of the young guys is what makes sense. And unlike The Process, I don't see them trading many of these young guys away, I think they all project to be good enough players to fit the long-range plan.

    Great comeback win last night after being down 20 on the road in Miami. Over the last week and half we've beaten the Raptors (road), Rockets, and Heat (road), with close losses to the Bucks, Nuggets, and Hawks (road 2OT). Can't ask for much more than that from this young team, especially without Monk.

    Devonte had 30 again last night including 8-11 from 3, Caleb Martin had 19/7/3, PJ had 17/7, Bridges had 16/8. Great way to end the season if they don't come back with super momentum going into next year, if they do play again this season I'd love to see what these guys work on during the break. Even from the beginning of the season to now, Devonte has gotten much better at his midrange floater, so it is tough for defenses to really pressure him out on the 3pt line.

    So Malik Monk was reinstated from a suspension that nobody really knew about for cocaine use.

  8. #168
    Tough to know what to do with him as this was the last year of his contract. The way he was playing before the suspension the rookie extension would be a solid move. However, cocaine is a helluva drug, so can he consistently play like that without it and/or avoid further suspension?

    Official 2019-2020 Charlotte Hornets Thread - Strong End to the Suspended Season

    1st time since 1992 we improved our draft position in the lottery....and we have been in the playoffs A LOT! Excited about #3.

  12. #172
    Staggering hadn't moved up since '92. I remember hearing on the radio we got the #2 pick and as a young fan just assuming we'd always be given super high picks, not so much

    Edwards and Wiseman have to be the first two picks, right.

    Big pool of kids available a #3 with no obvious pick. We could get another MKG or Okafor type.

    At the end of the lottery show, the main ESPN mock draft dude posted that Wiseman would go to the Hornets. Hope he is right.

    I'm assuming Edwards and Ball go 1/2 in some order in a scenario where Wiseman drops to #3..
