I don’t care what his shooting style looks like. I don’t care what anyone’s shooting style looks like to be honest. He could bend over and shoot the ball out of his bung hole for all I care - so long as they are good shots and they go in at a pretty reasonable rate.

If there’s one thing guys like Shawn Marion and Kevin Martin taught us it’s that it doesn’t have to be pretty, it just has to be effective!!

I find myself fixated on the game clock with my eyes glued on it every 1st quarter just waiting for a stoppage around the 7-8min mark each game these days. Like you said, that’s when I’m confident the fun will begin.

I said the other day that in modern Charlotte basketball LaMelo might challenge guys like Wallace, Herrmann, Jefferson and Walker as the most fun players to watch.

10 games in and he might have already passed them.

Hornets have turned into must watch TV. Love Hayward's game, and Ball has instincts out the wazoo. Shocked he can rebound and finish with his current stature. That'll only improve as he puts on a little more bulk over the next couple of years.

This team would be almost legit if you swapped Rozier for Kemba from two years ago. LaMelo is the exact player we always needed to pair with Kemba.

I feel like it’s clear we should build around Hayward and Lamelo. The way Rozier is playing I’m not sure if he’s a keeper or if we should sell high and package him for a true star and create a big three with Melo and Hayward.

What about that time our 19 year old rookie achieved a legit triple double in a winning game in only his 10th game?

That was pretty awesome.

Gerald Wallace and LaMelo Ball playing together would be insanely fun to watch.
