I hate the media's boner for Trae Young so I hope we limit his scoring output.

Curious why these always put Terry as PG. The reality is that there are two PGs on the floor when Terry and Devonte play, but Denote is the one making passes and doing more PG things. I keep thinking that, if you insist on calling one of them a shooting guard, it should be Terry.
Hope is free.

We've got these guys 3 times in these last handful of games. Whether we win or lose could have significant impact to our draft position. A win here is going to hurt us more than help us.

That's definitely true, but I'm not sure what more the team could do to lower their chances. A significant portion of the lineup are rookies who have played in the G-league, and Willy is getting big minutes. I guess some other tanking teams are just that disorganized/hopeless but it is pretty surprising how much this young Hornets lineup is winning.

Our coach needs to be trying out some new schemes and plays. Now is the time to experiment with guys and have them work on their weaknesses.

I'm a little surprised that the NBA is still playing in front of fans, especially in California.

No one was open for Graham to throw to. Now he has taken the first three shots, missed two.

Do the Hornets look like they are running any actual plays, aside from the pick-and-roll?

Sorry to see Vince Carter end his career on a team like this.

While we have a terrible record, we seem a lot better than the teams we have similar records to. I also can’t remember the last time we had a team this fun to watch. Martin twins continue to impress.

Tougher than walrus gristle. Eric collins is incredible.

Eric Collins is a delight to listen to. I actually love our whole broadcast crew, I hope it stays the same for a long time.

Can’t seem to get over the hump in this one. Our biggest weakness is so overwhelmingly front court defense/rebounding.

So is Cam Reddish good now? I remember he was projected to be the 4th pick up until the actual draft.
