    It won't be long now... HOOP TALK

    It won't be long now! Soon we engage in some season long basketball talk.My observations and comments as I see the Hornets perform this year.
    1-What does not move is dead.What has speed,and mobilty has more possibilities,more life...quickness creates luck.

    2- Your Defense is only as good as your HELP/ROTATING defenders.

    3-Games are won while the ball is in the air.


    4- You design your roster to win a 7 game series not a one game confrontation.

    I like what I've seen so far.....lol.

    But the interesting thing will be to see if Austin Rivers turns out to be a scrub or not.

    The season needs to come fast. This part of the off season is what I like to call "dry season" no news worth looking at at all. Cant wait for AD23!!!!

    random question, but who else thinks people are overreacting to the saints 0-2 record? The defense looks horrific but our offenses put up 27 points. Get spags new system down and we've got ourselves another playoffs season

    Rivers is coming out as a freshman. Also, he is switching positions from SG to PG. He was drafted as a "project," whereas CP was already NBA-ready. You know that. Come man... Use that noggin.

    Lol some people are already labeling Rivers a bust before he even gets the opportunity to prove his doubters wrong. It doesn't make any sense, especially considering that many of these people include Hornets "fans".

    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    Rivers is a polarizing figure. Some people view his confidence as a bad thing, and it turns them off completely. I guess I can understand where they are coming from, but I couldn't disagree more.

    I just wish people would give him a chance. I know that he probably won't set the world on fire this year, and I'm cool with it. He needs time to transition to a new position. It is what it is. I just know that most people won't give him that chance (people were already bashing him after Summer League).

    What it boils down to is this: do you trust Monty and Dell? If you do, then shut up about the pick. If you don't, then I'd really like to know why because they have done a fantastic job since they got here.

    On the Hornets Nest main page, where you can see all of the threads, towards the top left of the screen above the bolded words "Forum: Hornets Nest" there is a blue "button" that you click that says "+ Post New Thread." Click it, make a title for your thread, then underneath in the big box, write what you want to right.

    P.S. Welcome to the board.

    With Gordon, Anderson, and Davis on the roster, the Rivers pick makes alot more sense now since he was the only guy on the board who could potentially start long-term. No other SFs available and Rivers was the best PG prospect at that point.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Exactly. I think, if Barnes fell to us, we'd take him over Rivers, simply because we need a SF more than a PG. Aminu can still develop into something, but we'll just have to wait and see on that. This will be a big year for him. Same with Henry. He can be a SF for us too. But Rivers at 10 was far and away the BPA with the most upside.
