Awesome. I'm a Grievis supporter, so it's awesome to see that he earned this.
When was the last time we had one of these? Congrats to Greivis!Jim Eichenhofer ?@Jim_Eichenhofer

He's giving up a lot on the other side.. but it's nice to see him recognized. Congrats!
"I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery
The chemistry is pretty tight already and Greivis is a major leader of that, if we trade him, it could truly hurt the lockerroom. He is a great leader on and off the court.
"It’s important to us to bring in good people, people who can fit in the locker room and people you want to root and cheer for. People that want to win. We’re trying to build for the long haul.” -Dell Demps
And most of you all want to trade him still. Smh...Congrats GV!!!
I haven't been the most positive person about GV, but that doesn't mean I don't like him. Congrats!
I still don't know why people want to trade him. Players are to find..... especially when your in an small market.
extremely happy for him, great honor for him.
well when gordons on the court, he controls the ball almost the whole time, so maybe
With Gordon, it probably doesn't even matter. At the end of games, Gordon will handle the ball. All Vasquez has to do is basically play 2 guard. If a good deal is there, take it, but we can roll with what we got for a while.
Let's wait a few games before we say gravy is the answer. I personally don't think he is unless we get someone that can create his own shot at the 3. Gordon can't be the only shot creator on the team.

I don't think it is "Hating" to say that a player is a below average starter and a bad choice to be taking the last shot in a close game. That is what people were saying about Jack last year.
I see a lot of the same criticism of Vasquez this year. I have never read anybody say he is one of the worst players in the NBA, just that he would ideally be a 6th or 7th man on a title contender.
If he is your teams 1st or 2nd option, you have to judge him by that IMO and that is what was happening with Vasquez. You can't say- "Well, he is only supposed to be a 5th or 6th option, so I am not going to evaluate the guy in the context that he is being used, I will grade him based on what he should be."
He had to do more than he was capable of when Gordon was out. Now, he is in his proper role and I guarantee the "hate" will die down, because he has less on his shoulders.
Congrats to him but his role is to not be the primary ball handler.
If you could put a stud who could initiate shots for himself and others at the 3, then Vasquez could be a starter a la Mario Chalmers for this team. But if the Hornets are just going to get a spot up guy or a slasher at that spot, then you need another creator at PG and Vasquez comes off the bench.
How they get this caliber of SF, I have no idea, but if we are talking about title contender- not just a solid team, but a title team, I dont know how Vasquez starts for a team at that level unless we get a stud at SF
