Charlotte is going to get it together any minute now.

I knew MKG was a better option the Beal.

Another blunder by Ted/EG

Should have listened to the board. Just like we should have sold out everything we had for Kanter.

When will they learn.

I doubt Wall makes it though next game. You can see they rushed him back. That knee is going to give out any minutes now. Major surgery ahead. Probably miss all of next year.

MKG went #2, we had #3.....

Boston has been on a tear, 6-game winning streak, Green and Sullinger have been good role-players.

touche, hands11. Perhaps you've earned the right to gloat a bit at the pessimists.

Although, I must say that Kanter remains a far better player than Vesely. Trading up for him would have been the right move, if the price was right. None of us know the true cost though. If it was something like, say, our 17th pick (Singleton) + the #5 (Vesely), then it would have been a good move.

Kanter would have definitely been worth that.. unfortunately I think the asking price was the 6th and last years 3rd (Beal).

an observation

CLE already has 31 losses
CHA has been horrible after their reasonably good start.

Barring a completely futile western trip, maybe we escape
the ignominy of being the worst team in the NBA relatively soon.

The tank is definitely at risk. Where is Livingston when we need him? Is Pargo available?

Stop calling me surely.
Thanks, Ernie Grunfeld.

Brooks played Mahinmi, Smith, and Bogdanovic at the same time. Wonder why the Wizards lost momentum at that time?

MJ, Cho, and Dunlap are probably laughing that the commissioner fines Gregg Popovich for withholding starters from two games. They are withholding wins every game. They are doing some epic tanking. I cannot fathom a tank so strong as the one in Charlotte.

Kobe just took a double pump fake, shoulder-in-to-make-space twice, turnaround fadeaway after staring down a wide open Jamison and missed. Shooting 3 of 16.
