    I wish they made a stat that tracked the amount of seconds a player has the ball on offense, because it’d partially explain why Vasquez has so many assists per game. He certainly has very good vision as well, so it’s not all ball dominance. I really do like him, but not as a primary ball-handler on a starting unit

    I think Vasquez is the best SG the hornets have without EG. Monty just started to think about it.

    Two things:

    1.) Now that I see AJ Price is out, I change my Wizards prediction. Hornets by 8.

    2.) The next ‘In the NO’ will be all about trade rumors, proposed deals, etc. since December 15th is coming up. If you have any trade proposals you want to pitch, call in and leave a message so Ryan and I can discuss them. Thanks

    I cant help but notice how much Austin Rivers licks his lips during his interviews. They must taste good anyway people need to ease up on him & allow him to adjust. Peeps might be giving him a hard time because of who his dad is but his previous performance speaks for itself eh?

    Question for you. I’m still kind of new at studying the team and trying to transition my mind to stay away from just seeing W’s and L’s and looking at box score. I watch games and tend to try to process everything at once and come out, admittedly, overwhelmed. So in you alls opinion, who should I watch for and what should I wach for for said player in the next 2 games? Thanks.

    Aren’t we about at the end of the “6 weeks” that Eric Gordon needed for rehab?

    One thing I noticed about Vasquez is the guy is always fumbling the ball from the big on the initial catch from a rebound, steal, etc… This split second allows the defense to recover and the Hornets can’t get out and run. What is the deal? Just catch the ball and go.

      Our back court players never catch and shoot… Is it confidence or coaching… Even Rivers needs to shoot more… We can teach a course in dribbling…

    Love the Rivers/Parker comparison. I think that’s what Monty wants Rivers to be. And Parker didn’t exactly light it up when he first got into the league.
