| Pelicans Talk|| Standardizing Advanced Statistics - GeauxHornets on 11/11/12 at 9:58 am|
Don't usually pump my own posts on here, but we're really trying hard over on Hornets247 to push the adaptation of advanced stats as opposed to the other more traditional metrics. I created a chart which I posted yesterday morning which attempts to standardize advanced stat categories to help show w...

Just wanted to tell you guys about a watch party Hornets247 is throwing for the game on Saturday night. If you're in the New Orleans area, head to Rocco's Tavern on Maple Street in uptown New Orleans anytime from 6 PM until the end of the game to hopefully watch the Hornets improve their Minnesota 1...
| Pelicans Talk|| Enough with the Monty Williams bashing - GeauxHornets on 2/9/12 at 4:39 pm|
Have you guys SEEN the talent on this team? There is no question that without Gordon, no team in the West has a less talented roster than the Hornets. Could Monty have done better in a couple games this year? Absolutely. That being said, how can some people be calling for his job when he is trying t...

I just wrote a column for At The Hive which addresses basically every possible playoff scenario that the Hornets could face. I'll copy and paste the bottom line of the article below, but I'll link to it as well if anyone would like to read it. The point is that the outcome of not only tonight's Memp...

| Pelicans Talk|| Who are the REAL New Orleans Hornets? - GeauxHornets on 3/4/11 at 12:28 pm|
My co-writer at HoopDat wrote an article yesterday that really scared me. You really don't have to read it to give input (link is below if you do), just know that the article basically states that the Hornets "are who we thought they were." By this, he means that before the season, most NBA analysts...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Evaluating the Saints' Recent Player Signings - GeauxHornets on 3/4/11 at 12:14 pm|
As we all know, in the past few days, the Saints have agreed to deals with defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, runningback Pierre Thomas, and kicker Garrett Hartley. I know that most fans were very happy to see the team lock in each of these players, but the question that remains is whether or not these ...

| Pelicans Talk|| Impact of each Deadline Trade on the Hornets (feat. WHY CP3 WON'T BE A KNICK) - GeauxHornets on 2/26/11 at 12:49 pm|
I did a breakdown today on the effect that each deadline trade will have on the Hornets, highlighted by the Nuggets/Knicks trade and why CP3 won't go to New York. Feel free to take a look, and I'd also like to hear opinions from fellow Hornets die-hards such as yourselves. If you think I'm wrong, te...

All things considered, I was very, very encouraged; makes this [link=(http://www.hoopdat.org/?p=408)]season preview[/link] almost not look too overconfident. We all knew the Tigers' hitting was going to be among the best in the country, but the bit that really surprised me was the pitching. It's no ...

To get straight to the point, I’m a pretty big believer in Emeka Okafor’s role as the key to the Hornets’ success on defense, so I decided to take things a step further (using advanced statistics from HoopsStats.com) to see just how important the man actually is. Some of this may seem like stating t...

Alright people, let's see em. Both starting lineups and 7 bench spots (2 guards, 2 forwards, 1 center, 2 utility). Who ya got?

Amidst all of this discussion about the attendance benchmark, people seem to be forgetting the real question at hand.
