I don't know what deals were out there, and staying pat may have been the best move today.   but it sure seems like the Hornets just locked in to 2 more years of mediocrity.   As a season ticket holder, that card just keeps getting harder to justify.  


Into the crevasse!

Alright fellas, I am taking a sabbatical until this team is either in the 7th or better seed or draft time.

I'm more and more comfortable that I let mine go this year. Besides needing to reallocate funds, I was having a hard time sinking more money in. There's no "rewards program" for longevity (should be!) and the rewards program of seeing the team get better hasn't shown signs of taking off either. And while I feel better about that decision I don't feel great that this is where the Hornets are.

Can't imagine how Michael feels about it all since his financial outlay was a bit more than mine, ha.

Might not be $:$. He apparently put in 30M cash, the rest was assuming the loans of Bob Johnson. His net worth is 1.5B. *Not sure what his original minority investment was, or if that was the 30M.

They did what I needed to retain our seats another few years, keeping the one All-Star they grew. And the guaranteed price freeze over the next two years helps a hell of a lot.

Yeah pending trades I decided the same several days ago. I'll pop in occasionally but simply cannot muster enthusiasm for this roster any longer.

Jeez... The Kings are quite a mess. What a waste for a lottery pick.

He shot 9/28. If Monk was given playing time and was allowed to take that many shots he would more than likely have similar stats.

Wonder if that model assumes that the game plan/approach is fluid or static.  If the latter, we have nearly a 0% chance.

The Heat were up 24 a few minutes into the 3rd. They're now down 4 with 2 minutes left in the game. They think they're the Hornets

That's a good one. I'm spinning my head trying to figure out who Miller is in the NBA. Hey if Quinn Synder can do it.....

Sean Miller of Arizona. Got caught on a wire tap OKing a 100k payment for a player. Said that he won't be coaching in their next game. I'm thinking he's coached his last college game.

Or in other words, how the Charlotte Hornets will make their push to barely make/miss the 2018 playoffs and maintain their treadmill! :facepalm:  :P
