The Hornets are not “catering” to Ball. He is coming off the bench and earning his PT.
Dude had been hustling all over the court and sharing the rock. So far he looks like a work in progress who could be amazing.
Hello, I come in peace! I've watched all of the Hornets games so far, and I was wondering if Hornets fans are happy with how coach Borrego is handling LaMelo's playing time?
I think he's doing a decent job, because like you said LaMelo is having to earn his time. At least during the Maverick's game, when he was cooking in the second-quarter, he rode LaMelo. But in the OKC game's second half, Ball wasn't great so he didn't get a lot of fourth quarter PT.
But that's just my opinion, and I don't follow the team nearly as closely as you guys do. Do you think Ball should be getting 30ish minutes a game and be allowed to sink or swim through his mistakes?
We have a guard heavy roster right now but even with all of those guards he’s still getting good mins. Our coach has been pretty clear that he’s going to play guys regardless of draft position or contract based on their performance on the court so LaMelo seems to be earning his time appropriately so far.
