Sounds like they are talking about our young guards?
http://www.nola.com/hornets/index.ss..._river_defaultWhen New Orleans Hornets veteran forward Jason Smith was asked after Sunday’s practice to assess his team’s problems, he had plenty to say. He said they are not moving the ball enough offensively and too many players are putting themselves in one-on-one isolation plays instead of involving their teammates.
Although the Hornets are still without their two best players, Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon, because of injuries, they have not been able avoid low-scoring quarters or get enough significant contributions from key players.
``You can say it’s not a big problem and some people shrug it off, but it’s a problem,’’ Smith said. ``We’re going a little bit one-one-one too much, not moving the ball. We get a stop or a rebound and we don’t pass the ball and we get up a shot. I think we’re letting defenses off the hook when we just go down make one pass and shoot.’’
Going into Monday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Hornets (4-11) have lost nine of 10 games and they appear to be regressing instead of improving, especially offensively. In Saturday night's 100-79 loss to the defending Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder at the New Orleans Arena, the Hornets trailed by a 29-point deficit early in the fourth quarter.
Smith said their lackluster performance against the Thunder is what prompted the Hornets' veteran players to meet after the game so they can try and set a better example for the younger players on the roster.
Seems like a bit of a shot at Roberts and Rivers considering they weren't in the meeting.
I think Jason is on the money, although I worry more about our defense than the offense.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
None of the vets except for Ryan Anderson can consistently score. They are hacks. What advice they could offer the younger players is worthless. David West played poor defense but could score points over and over. These guys throw bricks all night long. If they get the ball it's either a turnover, a brick or clock violation.

This upcoming draft should be interesting
New Orleans Pelicans-Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Braves-Anaheim Ducks
Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
If you die, tell them that you played my game
I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.
