re: NBA Rumors: Greg Monroe & Michael Carter-Williams - LSUhornet17
Hard pass on both. Not a red flag that MIL has buyer's remorse not even after one season of signing Monroe? MCW is just not very good....

re: Update on #Gentryfication - LSUhornet17
[quote]Who are we going to get?[/quote] This is the key that so many people don't seem to realize. "Trade Ryan because we need a SF!" is true in theory, but just trading or not re-signing him doesn't automatically result in that spot being filled. Cap space is only useful if you have someone to s...

re: How serious is the team about moving Tyreke? - LSUhornet17
[quote]But I don't believe they have any significant inside sources. I think they make some very educated guesses[/quote] I know that TBW guys don't. Some of the BSS guys do. A couple of these guys spend a lot of time around the team and organization. Between that and the fact that NOLA is a smal...

re: MM's 10 Bold Predictions - LSUhornet17

re: Bill Simmons Trade Talk - LSUhornet17
[quote]Chicago would get a player close to rose[/quote] Close to Rose? Jrue is better than Rose now and has been since the 12-13 season. Rose hasn't had an above average PER since '11-'12 and is a career 30% 3pt shooter. He also has missed more games than Holiday since Holiday has been a Pel (and...

re: what will it take to fire gentry? - LSUhornet17
This team has yet to play a single game with even 4 of 5 starters, much less a full healthy roster. Ish Smith, Toney Douglas, Alonzo Gee, and Luke Babbitt are playing big minutes right now. Those guys would receive a total of zero minutes if this team is healthy. Holiday is on a minutes restriction....

re: Can someone explain this offense to me? - LSUhornet17
[quote]Despite his production it just doesn't seem like the offense uses him well. [/quote] Watch how GS defended Davis on PnRs. They totally ignored whichever guard was running it and completely denied Davis from receiving a pass, usually with 2 bodies. That is a good tactic to keep AD from kill...

re: Can someone explain this offense to me? - LSUhornet17
I think it was telling that after giving up that many points Saturday, Gentry seemed more concerned with the offensive execution (even after scoring 120 on last year's best D). Based on what the players and coaches are saying, the entire system is a "read and react" offense, with much less set plays...

re: Hiring a coach with a losing record - LSUhornet17
[quote]I went ahead and watched some of the highlights from the 2nd half. Hard to tell a lot from highlights, but the effort seemed to be a lot higher, especially from AD.

[quote]Then you've the remainder of teams fighting for 2 spots. PELS UTA DAL PHO [/quote] Sure, nothing is guaranteed, but barring SIGNIFICANT injury setbacks, I think Pels would be heavy favorites to finish with a better record than those other teams. Utah is probably closest, but DA...

re: Jrue will be limited to 15 MPG till January - LSUhornet17
You guys realize this was part of the plan all offseason right? There is no new injury. They are just being cautious and gradually increasing his workload to ensure there are no setbacks. If all is good at that point, he will be bumped up to regular minutes. They have been saying all summer his minu...

re: Gentry wants AD to expand his range and develop a corner 3 - LSUhornet17
[quote]Dirk took 250 3's last year, 14 came from the corner. Kyrie and JR Smith each took almost 300 3's last year, and less than 20% were from the corner, and they had Lebron getting them the open looks. The corner 3 is meant for guys that aren't as involved with the offense, so you tell them t...

re: About Jason Smith - LSUhornet17
FWIW Smitty ended up taking 42 3s this year and shot them at a decent clip (.357). Maybe he realizes his game will have to change to keep getting chances. Or maybe he was just dicking around on a joke of a team....

re: Would you be happy with drafting Jarell Martin in the 2nd rd? - LSUhornet17
Sure, but there is zero chance he'll be there by the time we pick. Maybe if he slips out of the 1st round (doubtful) and we trade up into the early 2nd. I believe the team did trade up in 2009 to grab Marcus Thornton, not that any of those folks are still involved. From what I've seen, it looks ...

re: Monty kept family from home games b/c of fans jeering him - LSUhornet17
Only a$$holes boo the home team. Could not believe there were boos in Game 3. I figured after the collapse in Game 3, the troglodytes (like the old white guy sitting next to me who said Monty should have played a zone) wouldn't be able to resist, but to boo the coach in their first home playoff game...
