    We got Posey because we wanted to win this year, now we're trading TC away for practically nothing. Wow, they just can't make up their minds can they?

    This move had to be done. Alot of people don't understand basketball on or off the court. TC salary was not even close to his production value on the court. He is overrated by many on this board. I'm glad the hornets made this move. It was best for the franchise. This reminds me of the day baron Davis was traded.
    Dell Demps PLEASE get us some scorers!

    Tyson was the rock this team was built around. How could we trade him?

    Seriously guys, if that is how you were viewing tc, what are cp and dx to you?

    Look at our salary for next year. If the salary cap would have went up, we would be fine, the fact that the cap may go down next year is what kills us.

    Shinn flat out told season ticket holders at the lunch 2 weeks ago that we were playing to win, that he was in better financial shape than ever before, and that he would never again acquire guys with criminal records or bad apples.

    So we trade a fairly paid, great human being of a young Center for 3 scrubs (one of which was arrested on a weapons charge last year) and get no picks in return.

    This is a slap in the face to all 11,000+ full season ticket holders who stepped up to the plate. They better have something else planned because the Hornets streetcar just derailed.

    Yeah...i didnt really read before I posted that.

    Shinn opened the checkbook thinking that it would be for a championship-caliber team. Turns out the evaluation of our team was pretty off, now Shinn doesn't wanna deal with the luxury tax if its not gonna give us a championship. Just poor management all around

    It's on nola.com also: http://blog.nola.com/hornetsbeat/200...rnets_clo.html


    This SUCKS, big time!! Oh well, so much for this year. I think the Hornets owe the fans an explanation on how they plan to address the hole in the middle that just got formed with this deal.

    I ain't dreaming, they could have tossed in Butler or Wright(plus our 1st rounder) and possibly snatched up that pick. Secondly, we better be getting the Nuggets or Spurs 2009 first rounder, because quite frankly that's what we were all lead to believe, and I mean how the hell does a trade get downgraded at the last minute anyway? Did we fold and show our desperation card? ****!

    If we had two first rounders we could package them to move up in the draft... Think we could offer something like Butler or J.Wright our 1st rounder and either the Nuggets or Spurs first rounder to move up into the top 10 or top 5 and snag one of this years top big men.

    And quite frankly I don't give a **** if Byron doesn't like playing rookies, I'm sick of his fickle bull**** all the time with young guys, and his rotations, and all that. I think he has already started to wear out his welcome in N.O. and if he doesn't adjust and get with the program, I wouldn't be surprised if he's out of a job before his contract is up.

    The salary cap is not going up next year - NBA projections are at best stagnant, so the cap will at best stay the same and most likely go down, meaning we're further over the luxury tax threshold than thought. None of this means the team won't spend in the offseason. All this means is that the team thought Tyson wasn't worth his contract - he hasn't been the same player this season as last, maybe he peaked.

    You are correct. Shinn has nothing to do with the bad moves, he hired people to take care of this and they ruined him.

    this is awful nothing in return?

    I can not believe that we didn't at least switched first round picks....

    History Will Repeat Itself

    Remember Larry Johnson, Glenn Rice, and Alonzo Morning dumped to save money! Well, history starts to repeat itself with Tyson Chandler being shipped out.

    Baron was a head case. Tyson is not.

    Quit jocking Shinn.

    We just landed two above avg. bigs for the price of one good big. we have depth now, and that is something we all knew we needed.
