This team will rarely win games with 20 turnovers. The one thing that the Hornets can not do is turn the ball over. They can afford to shoot poorly from the field but they absolutely can not give away possessions and points via turnovers.
This was a very winnable game where the team shot themselves in the foot by not protecting the ball.
No they can't be having those turnovers. They outrebounded the Sixers and shot and made more free throws but they also had more turnovers.
And for the record, the people that say attendance doesn't matter are worse than the people who complain about attendance. It may not matter in terms of bench marks and stuff, but it matters that we get out and support this young team.
There was just too much talent in suits tonight. We can break down the finer points all night, but it's hard to overcome such a deluge of injuries.
Good Lord, why are people still talking about attendance ? Benson owns the team. They aren't going anywhere.
I don't even know why we keep preaching to the choir about attendance. Just about everyone here knows about attendance. Try rallying on a corner with a sign or something.
Anyone who complains about attendance should be at games and trying to take as many people as possible with you...
We no longer have benchmarks to meet.
I agree it looks bad on TV yes but complaining about it on a message board won't change that.
Going to the game and putting your *** in a seat will.
why whinge about attendance when you aren't attending yourselves...if I moved to NOLA i'd be attending every game
Very very embarrassed to be a hornets fan today.
It's just the way the NBA is. Even though the games count, the pre-season feel lasts until around Christmas. Players will continue to miss games when they break a nail until then, and fans, outside of a few select cities, will not be enthused.
I was geared up to go to the game tonight, but when I heard of all the players out for both teams...no thanks. Was a wise choice.
On to Friday against the Bobs.
A lot of the American viewing audience doesn't even think about the NBA until the Super Bowl is a memory.
Maybe austin is actually a difference maker then.
I wish every game would be sold out, but I don't see anything changing attendance wise early in the year when the Saints are still playing. Once January and such roll around, the seats will fill up. I just don't care about showing great attendance to raise other people's opinions of the team around the nation. To support the team? I can get behind that.
And I don't even care about the T-word. ...though I won't say it.
