    I felt the same but I predicted about 33 wins before the season started because I knew we wouldn't be lucky enough to stay healthy.

    8th seed is big strides for this regime tho. I just want to see continued improvement year after year. We should not be the bobcats lol. Only reaso their gm is still there is he is his own boss alas jerry jones status

It's in my nature.

    Also, hindsight is 20/20. Real easy to say right now who we should've drafted to get more production at this point. But that's what a project player is. You select now for dividends down the line. No telling when or even if we'll reap the benefits. Just gotta keep watching.
    I agree

    would you rather draft kendal marshall? Hes a poor mans greveis vazquez... I think Rivers will improve big time next season. He should just forget about defense and work strictly on offense lol. Defense can come later. Id rather him be good at one thing than nothing at all.

    I'm 99.9% sure it was said we wanted him in the deal but the Clips wanted their cake and to consume it too.

    Yeah that was stupid. I dont think we would have gotten AD though. Things will work out. Im just upset that EG and davis havent played much. I really wanted a playoff push.

    And i would have been fine with either. But there was no lilliard or drummond like we had hoped... You take what you can get and rivers was better than some of the guys i thought were going to be picked.

    Rivers just needs to get bigger. His game will be driving to the rim for a while. I hold out faint hope they fix his shot mechanics at some point, but he'll be good with added weight without it.

    I do recall Dwayne Wade didn't make his mark in the league until he met, and trounced, Baron Davis and the Hornets in the 1st round of the playoffs rookie season.

But he is VERY, VERY, VERY inconsistent.
    Good insight. This season, despite how it might feel to him or look to us as fans, can still be a valuable opportunity for Rivers. He can play worry-free and simply learn to see the pro court as it is. Monty can work on these green tendencies and Rivers will hopefully be ready when pressure time eventually arrives.
    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.

    This is incorrect as Wade as very good in his rookie year. Had a couple signature games prior to the playoffs. That 1st round cemented himself as a star.

    Takes have already taken away Rivers' driving ability because he doesn't shoot well. Until he improves that, it won't matter how well he can drive.

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

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    And Rivers isn't as explosive or strong as Wade. He is younger than when Wade came into the league. About 2 years younger.

    He also had a rising 4th year star to play with in Lamar Odom for the 61 games he played that year. Not to mention starter minutes. I say again, that playoff series is where you knew who Dwayne Wade was. Is this incorrect? He averaged 16 points for that season.

    Yet, there has only been 17 games played this year for Rivers. Also like Rivers, in Wade's rookie season he only shot 53 three pointers. Less than one attempt per game and only made 16 of them. That's .26 made 3s per game played.

    Not saying they will take the exact same track in their careers, but some similarities are there. Give it time.

    I knew who he was due to his Marquette Tourney run and his draft status which a lot of people considered him the 3rd best player in that draft. People who actually pay any attention to teams outside of the city knew who he was and knew how good he was. He was over shadowed due to Lebron/Melo and Darko(hot topic) at the time.

    Most NBA fans knew who he was when he went on a tear for a couple of 30+ point games in his rookie year. You can continue to try to compare Wade to Rivers all you want but it doesn't make sense at all. Wade on his worst day is better than Rivers even if Wade can't shoot behind the arc.

    Actuallu the point with the shooting is Wade TODAY is a decent shooter now, when he was NOT back then. See the picture? Is it developing? Also, nobody knew or supposed Wade would become the NBA player he is today. To say MOST NBA fans saw that coming is proposterous. He was considered a good player with great potential, but not great at that time.

    To say a player chosen 10th in a deep draft won't be this or do that 17 games into their NBA career, as a light weight 20 year old, while comparing them to an NBA veteran needs no response. Just look at it like the train wreck that it is.

    Unfortunately for you, I was talking about Wade as a rookie. Wade was always been head and shoulder better than Rivers at every level.... even in college. The one thing Wade does that has always followed him as a player is the ability to finishing around the basket weather it's after contact or without contact. He has always been a high percentage finisher even as a freshman. Rivers on the other hand has always been a poor finisher even back when he was playing at Duke.

    Talking about Rivers jumpshot is kind of pointless becuase his problem is finishing with or without contact near the basket. He just has poor touch.
