Podcast No.41- Free Agency

Published: December 1, 2011

After having dismissed half the Hornets Free Agents back to the obscurity of the open market, Ryan and Michael McNamara express their hopes for free agency. Or distaste. En route, they give you what they’d like to see on the team if Paul is around – and what they’d like to see if Paul walks out that door.

Also on slate this week for our the NBA is back Podcasting Extravaganza:

    Here is an interesting link that is helping me keep track of what teams have who and need who.
    Please feel free to keep.

    Afraid lots of teams looking for Paul and Gray…

    This seem like the end of the CP3 era as we speak but do anyone think the Hornets still have a future in New Orleans once CP3 is gone

    i agree with Ryan about Gasol, i’m saying that since June.
    He outrebounded Tim Duncan’s boxout and it’s a very underratedd help defender. He’s also very smart and sets great screens.

    The big problem is that a 12 M a year contract for him may be too much plus i’m not sure we can deal Okafor. You could be in trouble with those two contracts (expecially in Mek’s 15mil year) because you are gonna need a better offensive wing player than Ariza/Marco to compete at a championship level Imho.

    Even if you don’t trade Okafor, his best days were when he played PF with a 7foot white center playing the highpost and stretching the floor so he could outmuscle other PF. Plus our D would rock with Mek and Lil’ Gasol: great rebounding team, both great post defenders, both great help-defenders, both understand when and where they have to rotate.

        lmao i really don’t know what you are talking about, i was just joking man! Brezec had same favorite spots as Gasol has imho (only Mark it’s waaaaaaaay better), that’s the point!

        OK…I always give the opportunity to the other guy.
        I just get irritated when I am not allowed to make a joke and the next guy can.
        If you knew you, you’d understand. I am the first to make a poke at myself, color, height, lack of brains…because I understand the very slight role or importance I play i the universe.
        But others feel such territory is off limits and I resent their right for a off limits but I can’t have one.

        All is understood…NOW GET GRAY BACK and get a shooting guard to keep the inside open!!!!!!!

    I like Rondo with the Hornets and CP3 with the Celtics for a year at least he get to test the market.We get a solid player and an all star too plus the Celtics frist rd pick in 2012 the idea is West goes to the Pacers or Celtics and take less money.We sign Glen Davis or Humpheries,the re sign Landry,Gray we can used that Celtics first rd pick with Okafor to the Bucks for Bogut and Stephen Jackson and then sign free agents James Jones,Solomon Jones,Anthony Parker,Willie Green and Acie Law

    C Bogut-Gray-Jones or MBenga
    PF Davis or Humpheries-Landry-Ewing Jr.
    SF Ariza-James Jones-Pondexter
    SG Jackson-Parker-Green
    PG Rondo-Jack-Law
