    We are talking about the 10th overall pick. Everyone should agree there is going to be a transition period for Rivers, but he doesn't get the luxury of not showing us something until year 3.

    Four rooks out there right now, lol.
    This game is over. No need to risk injuries. We need them to live to fight another day.

    He will explode in year 3 like Xavier is doing.

    I think this could be most of the season... I'm willing to give them a pass this season as long as they continually improve all season long

    I would agree normally, but the team wants him to be a PG where he's been a scorer his whole career. There were guys drafted behind him who are alot more ready, but they wouldn't start on this team long-term. This team needed a SF and PG and they felt he was the best available out of those two positions. He definitely wasn't the best player available in general, just out of those two positions. He's got a long way to go to be a productive starting PG, especially when he can't shoot at all. Who can he expect to play off of Gordon when he can't shoot.

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

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Getting blown out after 5 days of practice cant feel good. Not even is a meaningless game. Then again, the Saints sucked in pre-season when they hit the reset button in '06, look how that turned out.

    So you'd rather they have their growing pains happen in games we need? Rivers, especially, needs this. Needs to see preciesly where he stacks up. It'll help his development.
    Now I provide life insurance benefits.

    They've experienced growing pains tonight. I'm sure the last 4 minutes won't make the pains grow anymore than they already have.

    Game ends with Roberts, Wright, Miller, Alabi, and Warrick on the floor.

    so we scored 26 points in the 2nd half... equals what we did in the 1st qtr alone... and what the Hawks did in the 3rd qtr alone

    good game, good effort

    We're looking like a Jump shooting team. We're going to have hot and cold stretches. Good thing, Gordon has the ability to slash and score around the basket at a good rate. Rivers is learning that it's hard to score in the post at the NBA level. His struggles in preseason thus far has been finishing around the basket. He's going have to adapt fast to contribute.

    That 3rd quarter--holy schnikes! If they are going to have stretches like that, I hope they get it out of their systems in the preseason.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
