we will just have to agree to disagree..i think vasquez is a quality pg and an average 1 as of now but i think he will improve greatly over the next 2 years because he has done nothing but that since he has been here. His raw numbers this year put him in the top half of the nba in pg's. It is what it is I just wanna see the kid succeed and lead this team like he has been. when we surround him with a better supporting cast and not a d league team then the jusy can come back on him but as of now it is still out. Geaux hornets win lose or draw baby
Thank you for sharing your POV. I agree, we will agree to disagree
ok im ending this with....vasquez is putting up numbers thus far in the top half of the nba. With continued improvement and a healthy ad and gordon he should only get better. Time will tell i guess...lol I am done with this thread now...now lets get a win tonight hornets im hurtin over here
As for the point of your thread, I think MM is relying a little too heavily on statistics and not enough on the eye test. There is a steady balance between the 2 that should be used in evaluating players. This year, offensively, I'd put Vasquez in the top 10 at his position. Defensively, I'd put him in the bottom 10, just for lack of foot speed. That said, he is a fairly decent team defender, IMO.
Vasquez possesses a lot of intangibles that won't show up on the stat sheet. I think his intangibles are elite. His work ethic is reportedly second to none, he is a great leader and is very respected by his teammates, he creates for others, he plays with great passion (that hypes up his teammates, shouldn't be underestimated), and he takes (and makes) big shots. He has also added to his game every year since he entered the league - this year it's a little bit of a post-up game, the floater, and he increased his 3-point % considerably.
Break different trains of thought and different points into seperate paragraphs. Use correct punctuation to the best of your ability. Attempt to have correct spelling and overall grammar. It is ok if it is not perfect, but people will notice and appreciate the effort.
I agree with everyone that says Greivis is a great backup, but not someone you want to play heavy starter's minutes against most teams. His liabilities hurt the team on both sides of the ball.
His first step and top speed combined with average ball handling make it difficult for him to get past hurt when pressured. This results in less time to run our sets which, in turn, results in a worse shot for the offense. It can also turn into turnovers where there is no one behind Vasquez so it is an easy 2 points for the opposition.
On defense, his lack of quickness prevents him from being able to funnel guys at good angles into our paint defenders. This causes fouls and open layups. He is not expected to lock anyone down or prevent penetration. However, he is expected to slow down the opposing guard enough and in such a way that help defense can arrive and be in a good position to actually help defend.

http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/621/01/ The OP was not correcting grammar. He was just saying no need to make CP3 plural like there are a number of pg's like him in the league (see how I used that apostrophe for a plural?)
Look, I fell for Lee Nailon years ago on a bad hornets team. I actually thought he could be a legit player. The point is, anyone can look GREAT on a bad team. I don't think its so much hate, as it is realism.
^ If you don't present your opinions clearly and in an easy to read format, don't expect anyone to understand or care what you have to say. If you expect me to make time to read your posts, I expect you to take the time to format them into something I can read clearly. A little you scratch my back, I scratch yours.
e2: I specifically said I don't care about not using spell check and ****. As long as you make an effort to write something that wouldn't get laughed out of a junior high English class, I am happy.
Secondly, the OP's main goal wasn't to correct grammar, probably because he doesn't even know what grammar is. His main goal was to make fun of MM via correcting his grammar, but he can play it off how he likes. You can attack me for it if you'd like, that's your prerogative. I only get into it with people when they deserve it. Usually, I don't even start it, but if someone tries to come at me, you better believe I'm not a punk. That isn't internet tough guy talk. I don't see any reason why I would be ashamed of fighting back and having strong beliefs. If you don't like it, block me.
By the way, "anyways" isn't a real word.
You're = you + are
Your = the possessive form of "you"
Since you don't even have a grasp on the most basic fundamentals of the English language, perhaps you should stop insulting people for the time being.
Where is the good Rev Cletus when you need him. This thread is full of ghey :banana::1pconfett:wavey:
