Washington's too good.


Shows you Monk will get PT when he earns it


Sure didn't help his case last night, huh

His efficiency so far is just ludicrous. And no matter what he does it doesn't seem like it's a big deal. I am SUPER impressed with PJ so far. And the fact he was killing it in the preseason also makes me hope this isn't just a fluke.

I can't believe the dude shoots as well as he does. What a hilariously accidental find. His game looks like it will have a place in the NBA for a very long time to come. He's just so efficient, and you can tell he is incredibly ambitious and wants to get better.

It wasn't completely accidental. Mitch was asked why he didn't draft Nassir Little and he responded that he thought PJ was the better basketball player. Mitch was lucky to be the GM of the Lakers, but he has an eye for talent and a solid draft history.

Paul George 2.0? Needs to get stronger but his post moves yesterday were unreal, we haven't had a player like that since Al Jefferson

Nunn's been great, but I didn't realize he qualified as a rookie. Went undrafted, but thought he got a call-up last year. So PJ is at the top of his draft class.

Gonna need to find a way to stock pile 1st for Kupchak if he keeps striking the gold despite the lack of good picks.

Dude he is just so fluid, you can see just how solid and comfortable he is with his technique. It's like watching an NBA veteran. I thought PJ Washington looked alot like David West when we drafted him (as a ceiling), but didn't realize just how good of a shooter he was. That really takes his game to the next level and it's exciting to watch him because he already plays with good confidence even this early in his career. I think we are really lucky to have drafted him, he looks to be a reliable player that can be a stalwart on a really good team.

who would have guessed that pj, cody and graham would be our best 3 players after 5 games. i think most would have said miles, terry, bacon.

Cody has been fantastic so far, we wouldn't have won any games without him.

why? defensively its been rough, but thats not all on cody. offensively we are lost w/out him. he opens up so much space for the guards. its only 5 games, but his on/off and net rtgs are tops amont our rotation guys.

Cody’s stats looked good but I didn’t think he was that good last night. I thought he was out played and out hustled last night Vs Holmes.

Cody needs to go to the Michael Thomas school of hand strength. He got embarrassed on severe occasions last night under the basket.

PJ is looking great, the steal of the draft. We’ve needed a lucky break for so long. Cho was so horrible...I hope he’s working at his local In and Out Burger. Mitch has made very solid picks so far. Wish we would have kept SGA instead of dealing him for Miles, but Bridges will at least be a solid rotation guy. Last years steal is Graham, based on his early performance minutes this young season.
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.
