In the NO Podcast Episode 84: Projecting the Hornets with the Basketball Prospectus

By:
Published: August 26, 2012

Michael and I are joined by Bradford Doolittle of the Basketball Prospectus and ESPN.com. Over the past month, Brad has written several articles (like this one) analyzing the Hornets, and we thought he’d be a great guest to talk about projections for the future.

Oh, and his system is down on Austin Rivers.  So Michael and I can glare and grizzle over that a bit more. Good times!

Thanks for the podcast. I hope that Austin Rivers doesn't turn into the worst player in the NBA.

Another good podcast guys but one question, is it supposed to have that cut at about the 27:08 mark? It just sounded unnatural.

A couple of things jump out at me from this podcast. First the crazy: Bradford Doolittle said Anderson might not start for the Hornets! We invest $9M/year in Anderson knowing we have won the Anthony Davis Lottery to not start Anderson? I lost so much respect for Bradford Doolittle on that one, especially after he spent so much time talking up Anderson in a fact based, well researched way. Doolittle gained some of that respect back by liking Lopez, and saying Lopez was undervalued, and by saying both Rivers and Barnes project poorly in their first years in the NBA (the truth finally). But I still can't get over the Anddrson might not start comment.

I wrote earlier this summer that I don't think Anderson can guard 3s. Doolittle claims he can guard 3s that don't move much, which I agree with, but do you guys think that playing him at the 3 kind of takes away from his effectiveness as an offensive player?
