1st half we shot 10% from 3, 31% overall, and 37.5% from the stripe. Good lord.

We downgraded too many positions over the summer.
I can confidently say that going from Zeller to Mason is a downgrade. Hard to get worse at our already terrible Center spot, but we did.

I think we improved at the C spot. Plumlee can pass and is a much better rebounder. It was time to move on from Cody. However, we have no C depth unless Kai ages 2 years in 2 months.

This is definitely box office.

I’m ok with us just resting our guys and letting the end of the bench play. Last preseason game. Just be ready. If they play like they did against Miami, we will win some games.

Can we just forfeit this game since we no longer have the ability to score?

Seriously

This is completely embarrassing, but I'm glad it's preseason

We don't look like a real team

Their lead is 14 points larger than our point total for the game right now.

We needed to move on from zeller. But we still got worse in the process.

I think its more a Borrego has no idea how to get his guys up for a game, they just seem to play well whenever they feel like it

It's a definite concern that will be his undoing

How? I feel like at worst it’s a lateral move but then I remember Cody can only play 40% of a season anyway.

Plumlee is definitely better than Zeller but it is disheartening that other teams seem to get centers for nothing (Atlanta - Capela, Washington - Bryant/Gafford, Memphis - Adams) and we struggle so hard

Team needs to sell PJ while they can, he just hasn't improved since his first game in the league

Well, the good news is that it appears as if our 2-3 horrible games per season won’t be during the regular season.

If we stay healthy, we’ll still probably end up with 45+ wins.

Kid you not…I couldn’t watch this live so recorded it on DVR. Just got back, tried to watch, and all it recorded for the entire game was color bars. Seriously. I thought WTH? Then went to ESPN website to check the score.

W. T. H. ????

I guess when something is that dreadful they have a kill switch for recordings….
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

Well, that was a **** abomination.

After a very ordinary summer league showing and an even worse preseason showing I’m certainly not as bullish on this team now as I was a few months ago.

We could be in a for a brutal season.
