    I know your sick of reading this, but I’m gonna keep preachin’:

    David Andersen & Marco Belinelli

    for

    Anthony Randolph, Roger Mason Jr., & Bill Walker(throw-in)

    …then…

    Jason Smith & Marcus Banks(throw-in)

    for

    Nazr Mohammed & Sherron Collins(throw-in)

    THEORY:

    D’antoni loves the European players so Andersen and Belinelli would fit into his sysytem.

    Roger Mason Jr. would be a better clutch shooter for the Hornets than Belinelli.

    Anthony Randolph would actually get playing time for the Hornets, and be effective.

    Nazr Mohammed is an upgrade over Jason Smith for the Hornets system.

    Jason Smith gives the Bobcats a ‘pick-n-pop’ big off the bench instead of multiple ‘post-up’ BIGS (i.e. Kwame Brown, DeSagna Diop, & Jason Smith).

    Counting out Marcus Banks, Sherron Collins, & Bill Walker, the Hornets deal away:

    Jason Smith, Marco Belinelli, & David Andersen

    for

    Nazr Mohammed, Roger Mason Jr., & Anthony Randolph

    PF -West, Randolph
    SF-Ariza, Pondexter, Walker
    C-Okafor, Mohammed, Mbenga, Gray
    G-Mason Jr., Thornton, Green
    G-Paul, Jack, Collins

      Knicks know Randolph’s value… they’re trading him for a first round pick which is something we don’t have

      @Reazy
      Go to the forum and post this in ‘Thread for Trades.’ We talk about them in great detail everyday.

    nice podcast guys!

    http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2011/1/24/1952725/nba-pace-speed-spurs-suns-knicks

    did you guys see this one? Very interesting (and a lil’ complex) analysis about the pace of the NBA teams! That says the Spurs are not rushing their offense but make their opponents rushing into some bad shots.. The Hornets are the exact opposite, we are the team that make our opponent use the clock more than any other team. So that’s not our offense and pace that’s slow but we make our opponent’s pace so much slower and the overall pace of the game it’s slower that it really is! That’s some good stuff

    Since the podcast is called “Oh Boy,” I was expecting a picture of Cam’Ron in his pink fur coat.

    really marcus possibly the worst starting 2 guard on west playoff teams?

    Id take marcus easily over dallas (terry or stevenson), okc (sefolosha or harden), utah (raja bell hahah), push with denver (afflalo), and push with blazer (not counting roy since he isnt the same player anymore but id say push with wes mathhews)… that would make marcus around a 3-5 seed in the west only behind kobe, and manu

    I wish Ziggy and Al could give us some probabilities about how this season will play out.

    Lord, Green and Jack don’t rotate worth a flying poop either since you want to talk about Marcus’ rotations. At least Marcus will get in his man’s grill occasionally and bump him.

    I was trying to figure out where that still was from and then Mac mentioned Quantum Leap. I never watched that show, but my Dad did all the time. I was more into Baywatch and Family Matters. Anyway, you guys did a great job and I for one appreciate your objectiveness. Giving and receiving constructive criticism is a part of sports, as well as just being an adult. Keep up the good work.
