Hum, I must know less about basketball than I thought I did. I was able to see the hornets play for the first time this pre-season and I thought I saw a young team still learning to play together, and improving. I thought they played tough defense against the defending champs (who didn't look at all like they were mailing this last preseason game in). I saw them turn the ball over a lot, but i assumed teams usually do with this many new faces coming together in the same season. I was thinking that if we can get games like this from Lopez and Vasquez and Aminu as an average along with Davis who has done nothing to make me think he won't be the teams MVP (Especially with EG M.I.A.) This team will be much improved and could be a fringe playoff team "if Gordon can get right." Oh well, I guess i've got a lot to learn. Though I know it's the M.O. of 247 to temper expectation I remain at level 10 excited about opening night, and this 2012-2013 season. Geaux Hornets
You don't know less. We are saying the same thing. You see the `upward' possibility arising from the current state of affairs, as do I. I'm just mentioning that I also see the possiblity for stagnation and regressions, for instance, from Aminu and Lopez. We both have lots to learn, but I think we see the same things from this game.
I gotcha. I honestly wasn't being sarcastic, I am just learning, the whole game. I didn't grow up a basketball fan, and only got interested since the Hornets came ot New Orleans. I bought one of the 12 game plans for my son and I this season specifically because of Anthony Davis and the whole rebuilding. You guys are great here and I think I'm starting to understand the game a little better because of it.
