As for rebounding, the guys are rebounding at their average rates. Davis is just the only big on this team that can grab any defensive boards worth a damn, and he's hurt.
Terrell Brandon | Vince Carter | Keith Van Horn| Theo Ratliff | Zydrunas Ilgauskas
2003-2004 | 46-36 | 4th in the Pacific Division |5th in the Western Conference
I wonder if keeping Carl Landry would have made a difference. He would have been perfect for this team while Davis is out......this thread is so off topic now
We gotta play team ball, that is all
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.
Agree with 100% of the post.
Also, some people obviously got all caught up in the excitement of drafting Anthony Davis and forgot that this team was horrid last season, and is currently rebuilding. Anyone who expected a playoff contender this season was not being realistic, and setting themself up for disappointment. It's going to be a painful bump ride back up the standings, but, for those of you with the stomachs to handle it I suggest you fasten your seat belts.

People were well within their rights to feel excitement going into this season. But once takes over, all of the air goes out of the balloon.
If you're not going to be able to make deals right now, you have to at least take a look a guys like these through out the season.
Terrence Williams drafted by (Nets) Bad team
Armon Johnson (Blazers) Bad team of quitters
Jerome Jordan (Bucks, after draft traded to Knicks) Bad team to bad team
Hassan Whitedside (Kings) Guard dominating Bad team
Alexis Ajinca (Bobcats, eventually traded to the Raptors) Need i say it
Chris Douglas Roberts (Nets) Bad team
No one is picking up Terrence Williams because of his attitude and personality. Nothing to do with his skills, which are rotation worthy.
No idea about Armon or Jerome because I have never heard of them.
Hassan, Alexis, and CDR are all real bad.
Nice play from Lopez, GV (Munis the turnovers), Ryan Anderson and the wealth of cap space the Hornets have is what is keeping my balloon inflated.
Wait.. That didn't come out right... Oh nevermind....
I guess some of the guys took that meeting to heart because we looked good last night. Yeah it was just an 8-7 team but defensively we looked great. Especially in the 2nd half.
So you're telling me that you wouldn't be willing to exchange Brian Roberts, Lance Thomas, Roger Mason and X for any combination of the young guys i listed, taking in to account you didn't know who a couple were.
As far as Terrence Williams and his attitude, i think that's more confidence and being in bad situations with no way for his game to develop. Stephen Jackson had the same type of issues even at this late stage of his career and the Saints traded for Shockey. Strong coaches and organizations can make lemonade.
Terrence Williams is to young for the NBA to give up on and a team like ours can afford to take a chance. We have a strong foundation and it wouldn't be a financial gamble. If it doesn't work or he gives us problems you cut him loose. Besides Monty needs a few guys with that bulldog mentality to go with all the softer guys on this team.
Terrence Williams is a *******. No one likes him as a person. That is why he is not on a team. It has nothing to do with his talent, except that he doesn't have enough to overcome the fact that no one wants him to be their teammate. The guys I said are bad are just bad. Exchanging bad for bad does nothing. The ones I said I didn't know about are worth taking a flyer on, but probably not worth cutting one of our own bad players for.
