    I'm most impressed with his agility. He's so smooth and balanced around the rim. Incredible for a kid his age.

    And that is most successful when you know your teammates and TRUST them. It will get better as the year progresses. Vasquez isn't going anywhere. At least this year.

    Against another team's 2nd unit, I'm all for Vasquez. Not against another front line (starting PG) and not in crunch time.

    By your posts im not suprised. I dont think the guy an all star but i also dont think he is as bad as a lot of people are saying. Just be prepared to be disappointed when he starts against the spurs.

    Rivers can do that too, and he can create for others. He was having a nice game... until...

    Man, just wait until Gordon, Rivers, and JSmith all get involved. This offense could be off the chain.

    And when he turns the ball over and puts the team in a hole...get your preparation on as well.

    To be fair, though, Vasquez was playing against Ray Allen and DWade for the last 7 minutes of this game, and he looked great.

    16 pages for a preseason game. We didn't get this for half of the threads last year.

    Solid win. I know it's just a preseason game but good to get a win over the defending champs and the most talented team in the league

    a little fuel for Vasquez haters (as if thats needed), but 5 more turnovers and he has a triple double....

    Hey, I been hatin since the summer when it wasn't as chic. Respek!

    Im saying this, and im going to keep on saying it until proven otherwise. Bring back CP3 and draft Nerlens or a SF with our number one. We will be a complete team. I love Darius Miller, Austin Rivers, Jason Smith, Grevis, and Thomas as a potential 2nd unit. But a team with Lopez/Davis/Anderson/Gordon/CP3 is a very long team that can play D, and CP3 can facilitate the O that we need. Not only would we be okay money wise, but we would have a complete team.

    Is 5 TO good? NO. But stop acting like he just stumbled on 18pts 10asst and 5reb.

    I'm gonna really try to not be TOO optimistic on here but I doubt it will happen.

    The turnovers are a trend...in pre-season ball mind you. It's also how the offense runs when he is at the commands. Doesn't always result in a TO, but it results in the Hornets being dead last in points scored. Thats been pretty apparent to anyone with eyes, including gerryv.

    So I guess if Gerryv says it then it must be true right? He is never wrong. Have you ever thought that we aren't scoring bc a guy who averages 20+ a game isn't playing???

    I'm not too worried about scoring. If Goedon plays, we're gonna score some points. Anderson can shoot lights out. Gordon is gonna kill it. Davis is Davis, and the rest of the team is serviceable. It's gonna be a fun season.

    Those three alone could average a combined 60 ppg.

    Fun game to watch. Very back and forth and a hard fought win. Loved it.

    Vasquez's game got a lot better when Rivers and Roberts started controlling the ball late in the 1st half. Up to that he was playing very poorly.
