Is it Over?
Has the fat lady started singing?
I know the Hornets will likely be in the race for the next 2-4 weeks, but in my opinion it's over. I haven't personally thought we were going to make the playoffs since November, I almost came back around, but then the Hornets dropped those three straight games before the all star break.
I hope the organization don't just blame injuries. Yes, we have been bitten HARD by the injury bug this year, but I think we can all see there are issues beyond that. Look at Denver, blamed last year on injuries, came back this year and they were terrible. What we currently have doesn't work, I expect us to package one of Henderson/Lance/Hairston/Vonleh/Zeller/Marvin W around draft time with our pick, I really doubt we bring in another young guy in, especially after how Clifford has treated this years rookies.
My guess is they go hard after some of the following Brandon Knight, Monta Ellis, David West, Khris Middleton, Wes Matthews, Tobias Harris, Danny Green, Mike Dunleavy,
