How to maximize Vasquez’s trade value. - morsatun
If the management team is leaning towards drafting Burke, and eventually trading Vasquez to maximize the return, when would be the best time to do it? I know my point is not going to be very popular among some fans, but here it is anyway. If we are trying to get the best possible value for Vasque...

If we pick Burke…? - morsatun
It is starting to look like Burke is the pick. If that is the case, what would be the point guard situation next year? A few questions come to mind: 1 is Burke ready to start in the NBA straight away? If the answer is yes, then do we keep Vasquez as backup or trade Vasquez and trust Robert...

Can Vasquez improve enough? - morsatun
In my last post there was a bit of a discussion on weather Vasquez has reach his ceiling or not. IMO he can improve in some aspects, and not in others. If Vasquez was to be our starting PG next season and his numbers were to be: 15 PPG up from 13.9 9.5 APG up form 9.0 3 TOPG down from ...

Who is more serviceable for next year Lopez or Vasquez? - morsatun
We all seem to agree, that both Lopez and Vasquez in their respective positions showed good progress, but also limitations. Although not ideal in most people minds, it is certainly a possibility that either one of them or both would be our starting players next season (note I am not saying that is i...

We may be in trouble - morsatun
I know a lot of people are excited about the next season, and expect the Pelicans to be competitive, (may be not play off favorites, but 8 spot candidates at least). Nevertheless, no matter how much I think about it, I can see us improving, but not that much. I will explain why: There are 3 main ...

How many shots will GV take today? - morsatun
During the post-game talk yesterday Monty was asked if he was upset about GV taking 25 shots in the game, and he answered that if Gordon and Anderson are not scoring then GV has to take more shots. With Gordon out today, I wonder if GV will have green light, or will Monty keep him on a short leash?...

Mistake in last game's official stats - morsatun
This is not particularly relevant, but I am surprised that it can happen and no one seams to notice for the official stats. According to the NBA stats page in the last games Vasquez scored 15 points and 14 assists. If you checked the “play by play” record, when there where 1:56 minutes lefts it ...

Point guarding the pelicans for the next two seasons - morsatun
After more than 50 games of the season I am prepare to make a prediction about the Vasquez-New Orleans relationship. I am fairly confident that Vasquez will be the starting point guard next year and then he will be traded in the 2014 off season. Here are my reasons: Next year he will cost the tea...

The Gordon situation is killing us - morsatun
I really think that the biggest problem we have at the moment is call Erick Gordon. I am not saying he is a bad player, but between the fact that he cannot play in back to backs, and the lack of consistency he has shown, the team has not been able to develop clear and consistent game style. We h...

How much would Vasquez get in his next deal? - morsatun
This thread is not intended to re-discuss whether Vasquez will be with us or should be our starter in the future. I just want to have an idea of how much you think he will get regardless of weather he is with us, or with someone else. I am thinking about a 4 year deal, and I post 3 scenarios: A-...

The hardest game of Vasquez career. - morsatun
When you think about it this game had all the ingredients to become the hardest game Vasquez had played yet. -We were playing against a 6 wins in row Celtics -He had to face Rondo and Bradley, and without Gordon they could both put pressure on him. -He was not 100% physically (he had a cold...

When sarcasm becomes reality (Vasquez with a shot for a doublé doublé average) - morsatun
Last October, LSUIGARD13 posted a thread entitled: What player is most likely player to average a double-double for the season? In that thread I posted that the only player with a REMOTE chance of getting a double double was Vasquez (although I though it was very unlikely). These are the last 2 post...

I don’t care about points or assists I care about TOs - morsatun
Everyone is all excited about GVs points and assists lately, but it seems to me that the fact that for the first time in the whole year Vasquez has 3 consecutive games with less than 3 TOs (2, 2 and 1). This is really important if it becomes a trend, as according to Monty, the main thing he wanted V...

What does Vasquez have to do to maximise his productivity - morsatun
Ok, it appears clear now that we are more than likely to be stuck with Vasquez as our starting PG for most of the season. That is just a reality whether we like it or not. We also know that there is no way he will become any faster or athletic. So what can Vasquez do to improve? And what can the tea...

The big test - morsatun
Vasquez and Aminu have had a fantastic first two games; they have helped each other stats amazingly. Nevertheless this is going to be the first test to see if this has been mare luck or if there is real substance. Without Davis it is going to be a lot harder for Vasquez to get the number of assist...

Give Greivis a break. - morsatun
Last night was not the best night for the Hornets; we look like a team without a system. While watching the game I was following the comments in the game thread, and was a bit surprised about how harsh some of the comments where towards Vasquez. First of all let me clarify that I agree he didn’t pla...

Vasquez or Rivers, River or Vasquez.... may be Roberts? - morsatun
If Vasquez or Rivers start as PG on day 1 has been a long discussion over the break, so far after 3 games, Rivers has looked much better as SG but a long way from a starting PG position. Vasquez has looked very much like a back up PG. Roberts on the other hand has surprised with his offense, and in ...

Hornets need to improve in… EVERYTHING - morsatun
I know yesterday's was the first game of the season and sloppy play was expected, but this is not the first preseason opener that I have seen in my life, and there was not that much to rescue from the way we played. I started the game being startled by how badly Vasquez was playing, to the point tha...
