Wow I just want clap for the Jarrett Jack support shown, because quite frankly iv lost interest commenting on this site (still avid follower and listener) because the amount (not the majority) of people that cast unrealistic blame soley based on their unrealistic expectations they set on this team is just too much to put up with. But its not just enough to have this oppinion but because people fell so compelled to keep bringing it up and up and up as if we havnt ever heard anyone before say that Jarrett Jack is a problem. Its the thing I've hated the most about the Hornets this season, the continuous pessimism from commentors about everything.

In the NO Podcast Episode 49: Rotations
Michael and I talk rotations, I get foul-mouthed about Jack, though probably not in the way you are expecting, we make a wager, and Michael shills for a sponsor in the most pathetic way possible.
I am much to dignified to do something like that. Now, excuse me while I eat some Tostitos corn chips. They are soooo yummy.
Enjoy the Podcast! Want it on Itunes?
Lemonade makin' : Ariza is an above average stopper, Gordon an all-star level 2, nice pair of wings. Mek and Jack start for quite a few teams. Sure to be a very good 4 there when we pick. Over 20 mil cap space and picks when Carl and Kaveman leave. Another 15 mil and pick(s) if Mek is traded. I find it all highly interesting. WWDD?
To counter Mr. McNamara's statement of Carl Landry not helping the team at all, I submit this: http://www.82games.com/1112/11NOH11.HTM The team is dramatically better on offense with him on the court and even slightly better on defense. Also holding opposing PFs to 11.1 PER. Ryan was absolutely right in saying that his help defense is non-existent. Still, he is dramatically better than the alternatives so far. The same stats for Smith (http://www.82games.com/1112/11NOH12.HTM) are horrendous. Really, really bad (21.9 PER allowed to opp. PFs and 23.5 to centers). I'm all for more minutes for Ayon. Give him as much as he can handle right now.
Just had to say, it was another great podast by you guys. I'm really grateful that I signed up for membership about 5 years ago.. I have a question though, which is most probable - Aminu becomes a rich man's Ariza or Ayon becomes a rich man's Scola?
Good show guys. I don't see us winning any games this month, and as long as we go down fighting I am okay with that. Like I always say, our real season this year is draft night. We can worry about winning streaks and the playoffs next season.
