4. Darren Collison

6. Marcus Thorton

I am feeling great we actually use our rookies and how well they are producing. Today Collison shut down Jennings, Thorton didn't do much but hey he done enough. This is why Byron Scott was fired!

we are nasty.. Throton should be the starter.. I still think we should try and get rid of peterson/devin brown ... when paul comes back we will be nasty

Darren Collison got me 66 Pick One points against the Bucks, ohh yeahhh. These 2 rooks look promising.

love the rooks also! finally we have a good backup behind cp3. unless some people want bobby brown running the court, i'd say we got a steal in the draft, especially with thronton.

so does anyone know why julian wright has had such a dramatic decrease in minutes since bower has taken over? coach scott had him starting now with bower wright is lucky to put in 10 min a game. i think the guy is a tremendous young talent that needs to be on the floor with the others.

Wright keeps gettin given opportunities, andhe does nothing with them. I wouldnt be playing him much the way hes looked

Wright had his chance, I dont think he had many scoring opportunities but it is what it is, he hustles though and thats what I like.

I don't know about wright anymore, he looks like he has ALOT of potential but I have seen no improvement in his game.

Julien Wright is thinking to much out there on the court. He's nervous and lost out there. He's just not ready to be on the floor bcuz he doesn't have the CONFIDENCE that a Ball Player should have! He's a nervous wreck!

i agree w vinny i think he hustled out there just didnt have too many opportunities to score(the whole team was lost first few games w BS) but pejas playing well(on offense) and poseys been hustling so he may have to wait his turn now...and the rookies are playing awesome...i bashed them and theyre proving me wrong, however, i think the real test is how one of these guys(collison or thornton) plays the 2 next to cp3.

I think CP3 can make Thorton a really good player, I dont know if I want him starting though, maybe we can try it but he has been so good off the bench and Devin Brown has been handling the starting spot. I want to see us play some small ball, with Paul, Collison, and Thorton.

i wanna see some small ball w those guys too, not many teams that can match up w that speed.

The Hornets going small isn't the correct thing to do. Only in certain situations, we should go small!

Its all about match-ups,
-if we go small, they would go big to pound the paint inside and draw fouls
{The Hornets as a whole is a small basketball team}

We already have a good attacking system with the Inside/Outside game
- Penetration (CP3, Collison, B. Brown)
- Outside Shooting (Peja, Thornton)
- Points in the Paint (D. West, Okafor)

All I want to see is some "Good Basketball"!

VINNY, go back and look at that Thread i started, "The New Orleans Hornets Future Is Looking Bright"

...I posted the same things that where stated in that video.


GREAT FIND:clap:

that was actually a really cool video. kurt thomas always looks like a deer in headlights.

everything the guy mentioned was absolutely true. the offense we ran with no movement is something stojakovic can not produce in.

hopefully we don't center the whole offensive game planning around paul when he comes back.

i think the one factor i'm very happy with is how bower is playing our rooks. i'm excited about our team.

hornets season is saved cause of these guys when paul comes back hornets will go on a streak of about 7-10 wins and get right back in the hunt... we should be 5th-8th seed in the playoffs this year

The rookies are great. We are missing a bigger body who can get to the hoop consistently though.

But I love the attacking style of play from the rookies. It is much needed.

Paul should help because in the last few games they could use that elite play maker... And Peja coming back will help, Bower has breathed the life into him once again.
