Yes, yes we do.
In all fairness though, thought X was alright tonight, grabbed some tough boards, hit his foul shots and played hard on defense. Yes Ginobili got tricky on him twice with steals but thats Ginobili. Also he was on the floor during the comeback, really over seeing Dominic Mcguire stealing minutes from X, Miller and Austin
Stephen Howell is a cyborg with speech glitches. No real human's jaws can be that square.
I wish we can fast forward to the Lottery, so we can see where we pick, this offseason should be fun.
And honestly, I like what I see from the Hornets so far... I didnt expect us to be a playoff team or anything yet, we lost a lot of good NBA players that were good at winning now
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.
Great game tonight - I missed the ending but was encouraged to see the perfect result yet again - close, hard fought loss on the road v's a quality opponent.
We're now solidly in 3rd place for most lottery ping pong balls. No real Hornets fan could be upset about this loss. I challenge you to question whether or not you're looking out for your own selfish needs, or for the best long-term interests of this franchise. There is no reason for true "fans" to root for meaningless wins at this point, and I think that those of you who pretend to be "anti-tank" need to rethink whether or not your'e in this for your own selfish interests, or whether you're in this for the long haul and for the best interests of the NBA in New Orleans.

...rooting for the long-term interests of our Hornets/Pelicans/Voodoo/Brass since 2003
PR Sim League (2005-06 Season)
Nazr Mohammed - Jermaine O'Neal - Ron Artest - Shane Battier - Baron Davis

I really get a bit tired of the real fans stuff. I mean i can understand hating to see the team lose and all that and i respect everyones beliefs in getting this team good. I don't think it makes me a better or worse fan if i want this team to lose some games because it would help the future if we were able to land some good picks and i don't see how you can classify that as being a "bad fan". People who go the games, and coaches and teams all know this we are young and going to lose because we aren't experienced. I imagine even if i did go to the games i wouldn't feel so different because the bottom line is we all want the same thing, to be good one day. So i wish you guys would stop calling each other on this stuff because what good does it do anyway? We can all choose to be a fan in our own ways.

So rooting for your team to lose make you a real fan? Huh? Who's to say a top lottery pick will help the team land a great player? I always say this but the Clipps spent years in the lottery and they still sucked. I guess I'm just old school but I'd rather see the team win.
this team can't win with Vazquez. show me all the stats you want, I've seen enough game footage to know.
He refuses to make the simple passes or just swing around the perimeter. He dribbles the air out of the ball and takes 2-3 picks to look for a roll to Lopez or a last second dish to a 3 point shooter to take a rushed shot. I see this far too much. He misses AD wide open far too often and he can't push the ball or move quick enough to beat his man. He needs to go. I'd feel very comfortable with Rivers at the 1 when Gordon comes back because he'd most likely play off the ball but I even think Roberts executes the offense better although he's also guilty of killing too much clock dribbling in place, but his mid range game and basketball IQ is much better than GV's
We need FA's buddy. Tanking our balls off is not going to help us that much. Acting like your a true fan bc you want the team to lose is absurd. Im not sure id like to end up 14th seed, but i would like to see our team win some games (especially against the spurs). If we arent improving we are just the next Sacramento.
