    It'll probably be limited minutes, but any are good right now.

    Jan 15th is right around the corner, I'm just saying.......

    Honestly, I just hope he comes back and becomes what he can be. An every year All-Star, that impacts both sides of the ball, and if he doesn't want to be here, just be quiet about it so Dell can get great value back in return.

    Dang I had my mind set on Friday.

    "I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery

    Well I think we can all agree that it makes losing tonight's game that much more vital for our Bees. Prolly gonna be a close to .500 team If EG10 really comes back healthy.

    It would be cool if someone there at least got a video of our rookies singing happy birthday.

    It's the most annoying thing on this board. Every thread is littered with "TANK" post. There shouldn't be a place in actively wishing your team to lose. It just breeds a losing mentality.

    Last year I came around and was on board with the tank probably mid December or January, but now its just getting old.

    I was on board for the tank last year, but now that we have Davis, I don't want to go through that again. Any win is good for this team.

    Last year I was on the fence. I realized every loss helped the team just as much as a win. This year I think winning is more important than securing another mediocre 19 year old after we only win 15 games like some people hope for.

    People always look at the thunder as the model, but not everyone gets as lucky as they did with the draft.

    Sacremento: Cousins, Evans and now Robinson. Still not relevant, at all.
    Golden State: JUST becoming relevant after Steph Curry, Klay, Barnes and it took getting David Lee and eventually Bogut whenever
    Minnesota: Years after drafting Love, Wes Johnson, Williams, rubio STILL striggling to become relevant.
    Charlotte: Nuff Said
    Washington: Nuff said again. They've been hit with injuries, but do you think with Wall, they'd be pushing for the playoffs?
    Toronto: Who many years in the lotto have they been in? Bargaini, DeRozen, Valdkhbdhbdis, Bosh, etc
    Cleveland: Sort of the same situation but one year ahead os us being bless with 2 top picks after their superstar left. Still in the Cellar. 7-23, not that they've gone balls to the wall in FA but still gives you a feel. One outstanding #1 overall and another guy who's somewhat failed to live up to expectations.


    It's not as romantic as it seems.

    Exactly why I view getting a NBA Starter ready to contribute next year more enviable than playing the lottery ball game. If the NBA draft was easy, you would never see teams who get top 10 picks 10 years in a row. At least with trading the pick, you are able to acquire a player who has NBA minutes, and you can scout his talent level where it maters most, Against NBA competition.

    We already did what none of those teams could do. We got a player that could and should become one of the best players in the whole league. Whatever purpose you T-word for, we've already done it. There is no Anthony Davis this year. Andrew Wiggins next seasons maybe, but we for damn sure aren't looking to be missing the playoffs by then.

    At the rate some people on here are going, we will be in tank mode forever.

    I hope EG returns Friday so i can see it in person.
    As far as the TANK, personally for me its just a joke. Makes me feel better about only winning 6 games. I know we aren't losing on purpose nor would i be for that. I live by a strict code of BEAST or TANK. (again a joke, like most of what i post on here)

    I am honestly hoping to make it back to .500 with EG and let the chips fall where they may in regards to the draft.
    This year is all about improvement / progress. I don't really care about anything else tank, playoffs, or otherwise.

    You are absolutely 100% WRONG !!! There SHOULD be a place for it ! "THE DUMP" This crap of tanking for a top PICK is GOOFY ! We are going to get better next year by signing a VERY GOOD point guard, Packaging Vazques with our #1 pick (probably between 4-10) for a swing with handle !

    This is the whole thing right here. You need to tank, but more importantly you need to TANK when there is a generational player in the draft i.e. Duncan, LeBron, Rose, and now Davis. A team with LeBron and 4 ave. players will have a better chance to win a title than Bogut, Bargnani, Oden, and John Wall.
