That tweet about Kemba and Mitchell is hilarious, and spot on.

As much as I love Kemba for his great attitude and some amazing games in Charlotte, I don't think he is clutch or a great put-the-team -on-my-back-and-lets-win-this-damn-game kind of guy. Not really a 1A type. We didn't have the right kind of guys around him and maybe Boston does in Tatum but I am not sure Boston is much better with Kemba this year then they were with Terry. Still, I wish the Capt good luck and hated to see him go for nothing but saving MJ's $.

You are dreaming and making an illusion out of crap. Batum sucks, plays with no passion or effort, and yes the similarities to the pathetic waste product Diaw are fair. Both were/are tissue paper with no heart or inner strength.

Please let an NBA team feel as good about him as you do and trade for him!
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

Well, if there's any positive from this outcome, it may convince some superstars to play in the Olympics since the competition has obviously become a lot better.

Or it may be the reverse. They will see a superstar blamed and not want to be the next guy that happens to.
Hope is free.

:lol: Diaw made some pretty passes....he also turned the ball over far too often trying to make such passes when he should have attacked the basket or taken shots. Batum is worse. Hornets fans could construct a very long video with a collection of Batum flubs just from last year.

At least Batum hasn't gained 40 lbs and completely quit on the team yet. I'll give him that. Diaw is my least favorite player in our franchises history... completely gave up on us and started playing again when he went to the Spurs. Screw that guy.

For the record I'd like to say that even though I appreciate Bogut on the court, I think he is a complete douche off the court.

He really made the Aussies look like a bunch of sore losers.
