OKC doesn't have a big man who can hit a 15 footer. It was a nice trade for them, but I really don't think it's quite as good as people are saying.
Hornets Trade Deadline Chat
Come chat about the trade deadline all day with your friends from Hornets247.
Denver has 5 centers active on the roster. I would have liked to see any of 2.5 of them in Hornets uniforms. I am happy with Landry, though. I'm also curious about the Rush trade. I would have loved to see Banks being sent out.
I am curious to know why Hornets decided to pull out of the Indiana trade? Who were we giving away for Rush? We need a talented young player like him on this team
I hate getting my hopes up for trades to happen ... booooo for today's lack of transactions. I'm happy with Landry I guess! So we're left to embrace: 1-Paul 2-Green 3-Ariza 4-West 5-Okafor 6-Landry 7-Jack 8-Belinelli 9-Smith 10-Gray 11-Andersen 12-Mbenga 13-Pondextor 14-Banks ...against the rest of the West with the rotation stopping at 8 or 9-players.

seriously its amazing how much people are overrating Perkins..who btw is coming of a serious knee injury that it still bothering him. Between Perkins and Ibaka they have no post threats whatsoever. Yes, they are tougher and more physical but that does not mean they are better. Green was their most verastile player. He is the guy that gave us mathup nightmares and really burned us in the 4 games we played them. With no Green and no Kristic I am no worries about the Thunder at all.
i'm gonna watch some pacers games to see if we did the right choise. I haven't watched one since they went 20on21 against the Nuggets.

Thanks Dariusz for the banner. I had a version of the Spiderman cover they recreated for LBJ's ESPN the Mag cover earlier this year. haha http://www.digitalbusstop.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/The-Unamazing-Cavaliers-King-James-No-More-320x580.jpg
Being a Hornets fan at the trade deadline is like waiting for the Ghost Army to show in Lord of the Rings and it never happens. This ended in a Thud. But on the bright side, with reports that Dwest will miss tomorrow's game due to a death in the family, the Landry trade is pretty sweet for tomorrow... If Marcus will get his physical.
craziest deadline ever? These 3 days where amazing! Now i'm not that confident against the Thunders in the playoffs!!!
