Offensively, he is not a playmaker and his range is limited on his jumper. He is at his best off the ball, making hard cuts to the basket or attacking after another guard has broken down the defense and hit him on the weak side. Basically, he would be the perfect guard to pair with Gordon and/or Rivers. That three guard rotation would compliment each other fantastically, especially if Austin can keep improving on his jumper
I'd glady trade a starting guard that can play lockdown D than having some guy that doesn't even find his big on the pick and roll consistently.
Dallas is loaded at guard and wants move Rodrigue Beaubois (pg) by trade date.....this might be less costly for the Hornets than giving up core players
This is exactly the type of thinking that placed this organization in a state of mediocrity for 20 plus years. This is not the NFL . It is going to take time to build this team the CORRECT way. Anderson has been a GREAT pick up... We are on our way.....
It is going to take time, a healthy Davis, Rivers, and Gordon playing at the same time is all the Christmas present we (fans) "Need" in 2012.
If you're trying to grade a player solely on stats you would have to break down so many variables it would be hard for even some of the more gun hoe stat guys to comprehend.
Well, I posted the idea on a Clippers forum and they think Blesoe is made out of gold and there is no way we get him without giving up Ryno or Davis or Rivers.
This is the problem with our team right now. We are fairly asset-light. We've built a solid core of young guys, but really don't have any expendable talent at any position (unless you call Aminu talent.) So I expect not a lot of movement, maybe one minor trade, this year. Free agency and draft this offseason is where the big picture will start to become clear. I would like Bledsoe on this team though,
When was the last time you saw the teams trade anything but draft picks or lower tier players in the NFL?
Enough with the inciting, attacking and baiting in this thread.
Stay on topic about Bledsoe. This thread isn't about how Drummond stacks up amongst other rookies.
I'm fully on the Bledsoe bandwagon, but there is almost no way we get him in a trade this year (short of gifting the Clips our unprotected 1st). Vazquez and Lopez?? LOL, get real guys.
As difficult as it seems to be for some of you, put yourselves in the Clippers position. They have no reason to trade him this year unless they are absolutely blown away by an offer. He is locked up next year, and will be restricted after that. They still need to sort out the CP3 situation, so it gives them even more incentive NOT to trade him this year.
I realize we like to dream, but let reality sink in. Unless Dell offers the world (more than he is worth), Bledsoe is absolutely, positively NOT coming to the Hornets this season. Period. Best bet is the trade deadline NEXT season or sign him as a restricted after next year and hope the Clips don't match.
what happened to the third page of this thread?
