Doesn't really say that this is a given but apparently Monty HAS considered it. Thoughts?Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Monty has considered moving Al-Farouq Aminu to the 2 guard spot in starting lineup, which would create an extremely big lineup for NOLA
ETA: I wonder if he's considering this for only tonight's game or as something permanent.
Wait a sec...... I thought SG stood for SHOOTING guard?..........
New Orleans Hornets still without firm rotation
Shootaround vs. Jazz notesJim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
@ALEVYWORLD Keep in mind, sounded more like Monty "thinking out loud," not something he will def do. He was explaining how things are fluid
I think half the city may be gone to Atlanta.Williams on facing the Jazz (8-7) tonight: “Tonight’s a tough game coming back from a road trip. We really want to make sure we bring our energy in front of our fans.”
I mentioned a while back that I thought a line up of Gordon-Aminu-Davis-Anderson-Lopez/Smith could be intriguing, for a few minutes per half and depending on the opponent. That may or may not ever happen, but I think it's an interesting combination. If you swap Smith for Anderson, it would probably be our strongest defensive rotation. Only one guy who can really dribble though.
Monty has a twisted sense of humor.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.

#Hornets Anthony Davis making progress: walking boot off today to ride elliptical & pass ball during practice. No running or shooting yet.
Does Jennifer Hale seem more involved than the media members of the past?
She's doing an excellent job.

Because she's a competent reporter that takes her job seriously and doesn't go out of her way to interview B-list celebrities during games. She finds the A-listers.
Boots off. If this persists, and the MRI, which I'm assuming will come soon, happens between now and Saturday, my prediction of him coming back by then could be spot on.
hows he going to get 16 rebounds from there???
I don't like this idea. Moving him to 2 guard means one thing. Monty's solution to our weak perimeter defense is to use Aminu's length there. This will help on defense but will hurt his rebounding and offense as he'll be playing farther from the rim. The interesting thing now is.. whose going to be 3 in this line up? Lance Thomas? Darius Miller? Ryan Anderson? This is going to be brilliant or a train wreck. We'll find out soon enough.
Put Miller at the SG. He's done well defensively and he can make an open 3. Easy solution.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
