the defense is horrendous.

Yeah, but GV will still be vulnerable to blow-bys, and Anderson will continue to be below average defensively, so we aren't going to be the top defense in the league. We've still got to score more than the other team. We still need a 3 who can create his own shot.

Defensively, we need a backup center and PG.

There's quite a wide range of possibilities from horrendous to best in the league that still include the Hornets being contenders.

Plus, I wouldn't count out Anthony Davis just yet. He hasn't been ready to be the anchor, but he will get there. When he does, he will cover up many deficiencies

Depends on how you see that player's role IMO. If you want him to start, that makes little sense to me. If you see him as a bench scorer/creator to help Rivers, then I am with you.

I see them moving Lopez or Smith this summer and getting a dirty work type big.

He's tall and skinny. Not a big body. Just tall. We need a bigger presence to go with AD so we don't get pushed around in the paint.
