all game too. Nothing he's done has shown me he deserves to start or play major minutes over other guys. He looks the part, just doesn't play the part
lol you do realize that Hornet players shot 0/13 when guarded by Langford right? In his first 2 games, dudes he covers have shot 12.5%. He's made some insane blocks, he hustles, he has rebounded well and has hit some shots within the flow of the offense without forcing anything. He is clearly better than all of the following:
Fall, edwards, waters, ojeleye, nesmith, Grant W, Wagner
Probably better than Kornet too and tossup with him and Pritchard..
Now, as far as who should have been the 5th starter tonight, it was either gonna be Langford/Grant/Semi/Pritchard/Thompson.
Thompson and Pritchard are out for balance purposes. You have 2 PGs (smart, pritchard) and 2 centers (time lord, thompson) so obviously 1 starts and 1 comes off the bench for a balanced rotation. Plus you're not starting thompson since it's only his 1st game back.
Now, Semi is out since this was only his 2nd game back..and we know Brad just loooves Grant.
So that leaves Grant vs Langford. And I think (hope) we can all agree Langford is better than Grant..
