Random Shizzle: Pregame edition

By:
Published: November 16, 2007

The Hornets try for the best start in franchise history this evening, when they take on the Grizzlies in Memphis. We're currently 7-2 on the season, aiming for that eighth win.

This post isn't your usual half-assed game preview because there's already some good reading out there. Check out Ryan Schwan's preview over at The Hornets Fan, then get a view from the other side over at the Grizz blog 3 Shades of Blue. Both quality reads, I assure you.

So, with all that taken care of, let's get to some shizzle. It's been a while…

  • A few more clips were added to the Hornets247 YouTube group earlier, including one where Bobby Jackson talks about how good he looks. It's oh-so humorous.
  • We didn't get to see a lot of the much-anticipated Julian Wright vs. Thaddeus Young showdown during  Hornets-Sixers on Wednesday. But man, it was fantastic while it lasted. I'll let the 4th quarter play-by-play tell it…

    0:56 – Thaddeus Young enters the game for Andre Iguodala.

    0:56 – Julian Wright enters the game for David West.

    0:51 – Julian Wright blocks Thaddeus Young's 14-foot jumper.

    0:50 – Thaddeus Young offensive rebound.

    0:46 – Thaddeus Young lost ball (Julian Wright steals).

    0:30 – Melvin Ely misses 10-foot jumper.

    0:27 – Julian Wright offensive rebound.

    Exhilirating stuff. It was a lot like Dominique and Larry back in the day.

  • John Hollinger went and got on my Christmas card list by ranking the Hornets 2nd in the NBA in his latest power rankings. Yes, we're even ahead of the Spurs, who beat us up and took our lunch money last week. Go figure.

  • According to this, if you were to bet $100 on the Hornets winning a championship this season, and then they actually did, you'd be $6,100 richer. Methinks that's not a bad gamble.

Grizzlies-Hornets tonight gets going at 7pm Central. Memphis are 2-5 on the season, coming off a 3-point loss at Milwaukee on Wednesday. They did beat the Rockets in Memphis the day before though, and the Rockets ain't exactly sucking this season.

Anyway, here's hoping for the best start in franchise history. Linkage and I'm out…
