I just have not been impressed so far, I wasn't thrilled with the pick anyway, I thought they should tried to trade up to draft Lillard but thats the way it goes.
I realize he hasn't played pg. I guess I am still spoiled of having a good point guard with having Paul & Baron Davis the last 15 years.
I just hope Gordon comes back plays well and stays healthy, but I think there is slim chance of that happening. I hope I am wrong.
Sounds stupid but can Vasquez play the 3? He can rebound pretty well for a 6'6 guy aswell.
He struggles guard pgs because he is a lot slower. He scores because of his strength and height. I wouldnt mind seeing him there

can someone explain to me why you are saying Vasquez didn't defense well in recent games? From what I saw, both Lillard and Curry struggled in finding their shoots or assists.
I have seen you hard on Vasquez in a few threads. I know you blame the travel he made late in the game. But to me that's clearly a bad call. Another bad call is the last block call on Rivers. It is clear that they have home advantage, even golden state reporters said that. Why can't the hornets fans be supportive to their players?
I like Vasquez. I think he could be one of the best PGs in the league, as a backup. I think its clear the major positions we need to address via trades or fa/draft is PG and SF.
Also some facts from front court.
The hornets were beat in the paint again. They were out rebounded. Good to see Davis getting 16 rebounds though. But Ryan got ZERO rebound. He used 26 possessions to get 28 points. David Lee is indeed a hard match up for him.
I love Davis's effort. But I expect him to develop more post moves like David Lee.
Once davis develops a little more of an offensive game, he'll be unstoppable. Right now he stands around alot on o, not much to complain about, but once he bulks up, develops some post moves and improves his jump shot, he will be a dominating force in this league. As far as vasquez, my opinion of him changes every possession. We have bigger concerns at the 2 and 3 right now in my opinion.
It's not like anyone here hates Vasquez. In fact, he's one of my favorites on the team because he plays so hard and I love his fire. But I think we all see his limitations. There is probably a personnel group that would work with Vasquez at the PG; hell, it's probably Eric Gordon at the 2. He'll take a lot of pressure off of Vasquez when he takes over the P&R. For now, though, without a faster guard, he is experiencing a lot of trouble on offense and defense. I think it's reasonable to complain about his game when it hurts the team in the midst of a pretty bad losing streak. I still like him; I just recognize the team can probably do better with someone else starting.
The only thing im really upset about is no miller time. He must have really been slacking in practice or something. Vazquez didnt play awful tonight but he missed slot of open men tonight. The only way he can keep starting in this league is if he sharpens his descision making up. Its supposed to be his strong suit but hes stumbled alot this season.
And mcguire is a likable player. He doesnt have much offense but ppl need to learn from him. He is a solid defender and a good ballhandler.
And most NBA basketball is P&R. I'm not sure where you get this notion that it's not. It's not like we have any playmakers on the wing to do something besides pick n roll.
