    Well I just hope he doesn't come back with a "they don't want me here" attitude and tank his rehab. I hope TC realizes why the front office made the move and things aren't too awkward when he comes back. We'll see pretty quickly...

    exactly. this isn't over. not yet at least.

    if u think you've seen foul trouble with Hilton - you haven't seen Wilcox, the Dude is a lock to foul out (or sit with 5, big diff?) if he plays 30 minutes

    energy - but sloppy. Yao?.. Duncan?.. Dirk.. stoudemire/shaq.. Gasol.. Aldridge/Oden.. Not saying Chandler is lockdown but WHO even begins to MATCHUP with these guys outside of TC?? Armstrong goes into fall trouble - Marks gets embarrassed

    Be glad to have Tyson back..

    Chris Paul - 46 oops this year... 41 to TC. would hate to miss that

    Waiting til the offseason wouldn't have helped the luxury tax situation at all. That trade wasn't made to help THIS season it was made to dump Tyson.

    maybe this will allow them to play loose and have some fun out there, which it did'nt look like they were doing the first half of the season. It looked like the expectations were putting a lot of added pressure on them. Now that they got their boy back they can loosen up and have some fun and kick everyone's ***

    I don't agree. I think Wilcox and Smith (this year) are better than the Tyson Chandler we saw all season.

    I think we should blame the bulls for paying him so much.

  10. #335
    Anyone else think Bower is gonna make a trade tomorrow?

    I would pay to see that footage.

    Yes I do. If he does not, I will not be shocked, but I expect Shinn has asked him to see if anyone else may want TC.

    will there be a press conference with bower and scott, and awarding tyson his new jersey?

    Waiting untill the offseason means Shinn would have to pay the Tax next year becuase whoever they would trade for would be very close to what TC makes and have a contract through next year. If the Hornets don't cut salary (meaning trade for expiring contracts) by tomorrow at 2:00 they are in the luxary tax next year.

    He sure as heck will be trying, but we do not have too many players that other teams are interested in.

The cap space wouldn't have hurt though...

    Yeah that's all nice and good for 2010. But it's widely known around the league that Shinn is focused on cutting the payroll in 2009. Yes it was about dumping Ty and his serious injury but Bowers talk about adding frontcourt depth was BS. Niether Joe Smith or Wilcoxs agents were going to get a phone call from the Hornets at all on July 1st. It was a salary dump plain and simple.

    I'm not sure how to feel about this..I'm glad TC is there. Luckily the guys he has to work with were not for the trade so I don't see any issues with the locker room but dang... I hope he's OK.. curious who we dump now.. Hopefully we wait until the summer.

    That's where we may disagree and for THIS YEAR, I think Wilcox and Smith would have given us a better shot at going deeper into the playoffs that what Tyson had given this year. Furthermore, we wouldn't have had Tyson's cap number in 2010 either, making us fairly big players to improve.

    TC is untradeable at the moment. He'll be with us the rest of the year, and quite likely, longer.


    Time for some football!!!

    Why do you want to wait? We need help NOW!! Hilton as starting center is an embarrasment man...we need to make a move now.

    Hilton Armstrong and an undersized Chris Wilcox defending Tim Duncan or Pau Gasol in a 7 game series?

    Yeah I don't think so.

    This is the truth.....

    Not to sound like an idiot guys, but as an OKC fan, I'll tell you straight up that having Tyson Chandler on the bench in a suit is more effective than having Chris Wilcox out on the court. That's how lazy that dude is and he's always been that way. He has to be absolutely pushed to give any real effort, and I have a feeling that he's gonna end up gone either way eventually. We're trying to build for the future and we've got a killer young 3 with Durant, Green, and Westbrook. A guy like Wilcox with his lazy attitude isn't gonna help the cause. Joe Smith is a very professional guy, very classy, a veteran with playoff experience and a leader, he can also still play some ball. I'll admit, I was very excited about the thought of getting Tyson becuz he would have fit great with our youngbloods, but I guess if he's a liability, then there's no reason to spend all that money. I love our new guys, Durant is like a mini Michael Jordan, no B.S.....he's the real deal and only 20 years old, and Jeff Green and Russell "Hustle" Westbrook will both be stars. But damn....I miss CP3 and D West. Byron Scott is also a good, classy coach, it was a pleasure having him coach that team while they were here. Good luck to you guys the rest of the season.
