in the last draft, was there someone that you felt the Hornets should have drafted instead of selling the pick?

I was lobbying for Brandon Rush. He was my sleeper pick of the draft but I guess I wasn't the only one thinking that because his value jumped and he got taken at 13. After that I was lobbying for Chalmers/Darrel Arthur/Deandre Jordan/Batum/Chris Douglas Roberts. At the time I would have been happy if we took any of those guys but selling the pick is what enabled us to sign Posey. I'm starting to question the Posey signing. We picked him up expecting him to be the final piece to a championship team but that isn't the case. We still have a lot of holes and we're tied down by some bad contracts and a cheap owner.

I wouldnt call him cheap just yet. Keep in mind that until the second half of last year, the attendance numbers pretty much sucked. I will reserve judgement until this offseason on if he is cheap. The really sad part is that Posey is still better than the rest of the bench :lol:

Maybe cheap is the wrong word. I wasn't saying it as an insult but he clearly doesn't have the spending power of some of the other teams. I can't say I blame him with the economy.

Posey is still a great bench player and very useful but we're giving him around 6 mil a year. For that price we could have picked up 2 or 3 solid bench players. I'll reserve my judgement on the Posey pick up until I see what he does in the playoffs though.

My biggest knock with the Hornets is bad scouting and player development. We've missed on some good players and have failed to develop some as well. Other than the West and Paul pickups our drafting has been bad. We cut a very affordable Brandon Bass and now he's developed a solid role in Dallas. Imagine how useful he would be to us right now.

It's a shame. I think we're not doing enough to develop Julian either.

true. when he is on the court with Paul, he does a good job for the most part. If he gets the knowledge he needs, he could be a very effective and versatile player

He plays defense and I love seeing him and Paul hookup for alleys. That one against San Antonio was crazy.

man we should of tanked more games so we could have a better chance, but im all for crushing T dots raptors by 40.

:rolleyes:

I was at the OKC game and JuJu ran a fast break steal down from behind, blocked the layup, saved it from going out of bounds, and then ran the Hornets return break down and took a pass from Paul in for the score

I about lost my ****
