Teams can survive without their best player for a few games. It's when the player misses a significant amount of time. LeBron never missed more than 7 games in a season in his entire career.
Also, let's look at another example of a team missing their best player. In 2010-2011, Eric Gordon missed 26 games. The Clippers were 25-31 with him on the court, and 7-19 without him. That team started out 1-11 (w/ Gordon) and had some big struggles early. So after that, they were 24-20 with Gordon on the court. Could the Hornets face a similar situation? I think so for sure. That Clippers team was not as good as this Hornets team.

Taking my post down, but my point in it was saying you shouldn't post it because it's too easy to find that way. Took me all of 4 seconds.

Hope that's a gated community. Last thing he needs is some overzealous fan paying a house call.
Edit: It is not. Internet is a scary place. I've driven through the neighborhood a few times now that I recall.

600 grand is pretty moderate, im actually impressed he's looking in that range.
Some Hornets fancy-pants live in English Turn. What's good for the fancy pants is good for the whoevers.
Plus, he could easily have an apartment or second place if that was too inconvenient.
Many Saints players and staff do NOT live in New Orleans or even sleep here (or JP or whatever). Think Northshore, especially after Katrina. Destrehan.
Or they just have an apartment and really `live' back home.

There are some new subdivisions going up in Belle Chase that puts English Turn to shame. And I personally can't stand the area, so no bias here. It's just too far from anything resembling city life. Buts that's what some people like.
Point taken though. I took it down just in case he doesn't feel too cool to live in Belle Chasse.

No team can be a true contender without it's best player, but it doesn't mean they have to play poorly either.
I'll bet some of ya'll thought he'd go the Devin Brown route as far as housing goes right?
he stayed in hotels the whole time.
I love to visit cities occassionly, but I tire of them over the course of a weekend. Just not my style.

All this Belle Chase talk has me wondering what home and flood insurance cost. I want in on the ground floor of "Louisiana's next Beverly Hills."
If you Jimmer it, they will come.
A smart NBA employee, according to New York Knicks forward Steve Novak, doesn’t buy a home in the city where he works; he rents. “Statistically, very few guys stay in one place, so I think the people you have around you, your agents and advisors, are people that tell you to rent, don’t buy,” Novak said. “You are probably not going to be there forever, and even if you feel like you are, you can’t guarantee it. The guys who find a home are lucky, but I think a lot guys do bounce around for their whole career.” Novak, of course, had always been one of those guys before finding a good landing spot in Manhattan. Drafted as a Houston Rocket, Novak has played for five different teams in only seven NBA seasons. However, after a career year with the Knicks in 2011-12, Novak was able to ink a four-year deal to stay in New York. HoopsWorld
