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..

Got pretty sketchy there but actually saw some good late game execution against a great defense.

Jaylen Tristan(surprisingly) and Marcus with some great plays down the stretch really brought us home.

FWIW as disappointing and frustrating as this season has been we can still find our juice and make some **** noise. No one in the league scares me outside of the nets.

Except the pistons actually thank god they’re not gonna make the playoffs I want no part of them in any sort of series.

Simple answer is they have great talent.

The problem is they don't have great basketball IQ.

Just like a beautiful girl with big boobs but not very bright.

Good to see ya back, even if here and there.

I guess that's why I date a girl with big boobs who has a doctorate in biochemistry and works for the government. I gotta balance this s**t out some type of way.
