Man I wish it would be Friday so I could see him play and win the Gordon return date bet we have going on on here
HR Sim League - Philadelphia 76er's (0-0)

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
i choose to be optimistic and excited. it's christmas afterall.
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.
HORNETS/PELICANS SEASON TICKET HOLDER SINCE 2007
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Curious if he'll start right away.
Too lazy to look for it, but Monty said he was gonna bring him along slowly. I don't see him starting right away.

Should be interesting
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.
