re: So would you give Chanandler Parsons a max deal? - LSUhornet17
I probably grit my teeth and do it. If he didn't have his injury history, I really wouldn't think twice. He checks too many boxes this team needs. Perimeter defense? Check (Maybe a bit overrated here, but he'd get the job done). Play-making? Check (his career AST% is more than double that of anyone ...

re: Do the Pelicans fan base have the most pretentious writers? - LSUhornet17
Have you ever looked at other team blogs? No joke that BSS is one of the best. TBW has some great writers. All of these guys really know their stuff, and the commitment it takes to do this is no joke. I know. I couldn't keep it up. Also, (and I can speak with a little experience here) the vast ma...

re: Explain a Bender/Davis frontcourt to me. - LSUhornet17
[quote]He's also much better on D than you would expect from a guy his age. To be honest, he looks more like a SF than a C to me. [/quote] Yup. Plays almost exclusively from perimeter at this stage (probably due to weight). Now as he adds weight he could move closer to the basket while retaining...

re: Would we really pass on Bender if he is there? - LSUhornet17
I think they may take him if all 3 of the guards are gone. If it gets to that point I'd much rather Bender than Brown. I think he could log significant minutes next to AD down the line with his size and versatility. Definitely a bit of a project, but Brown is really no different in that regard, and ...

re: Omer Asik "wins" the Shawn Bradley Award - LSUhornet17
[quote] and I found out Omer bows to Mecca five times a day and that sealed it.[/quote] Oh so his play on the court didn't do it, just purely xenophobic reasons? Trash his game all you want, but that stuff does not belong on here. Also, you "found out"? You know he is from Turkey, right? Arou...

re: Offseason Dell Demps Job Watch - Day 28ish - And now my watch is ended - LSUhornet17
Good work here. I think Tyreke's skillset could work just fine coming off the bench and getting his a la Crawford for LAC (in a Gentry-designed O), but the question is not with his skills, it's with his head. Is he willing to play that role? Is he okay with sacrificing minutes and spotlight for a be...

[quote]I think these procedures that he's having on his shoulder and knee are more severe and serous than the Pels (shocker) would have us to believe.[/quote] Well if you say so I'm sold. Why should we believe the team and AD himself when oncealurker is providing his expert medical opinion that b...

re: Would We Really Want Simmons? - LSUhornet17
[quote]His offensive game isn't going to look as good when he's not posting up undersized players and everyone he tries to iso is a professional.[/quote] It's exactly the opposite. His best attribute is his passing. The other team having to guard the other 4 players on the floor (which no team di...

re: What are you guys thoughts on Evan Fournier? - LSUhornet17
Orlando isn't letting him go. Multiple reports said as much during the trade deadline. Those things can certainly change, but I do not see him going anywhere. They want to hold on to their young core of 6 players (Vuc, Mario, Payton, Dipo, Fournier, & Gordon)....

re: Rev up the tank tonight PeliBros! - LSUhornet17
Not sure where that info comes from, but Matthew McQueen is my personal doc and he has been with team well before 2013-14. I've been a STH since 2009-10 and he has been sitting behind the bench since at least then. The names of the docs may have swapped around a bit, but it is the same team of docs ...

re: Draft Prospect: Timothe Luwawu - LSUhornet17
You sold me. One of the big things I like watching DX's video is his passing. Pels are seriously short on guys who keep the ball moving or make the right pass. Looks like his decision-making could certainly improve, but he some solid passing instincts, which could really help this team if they conti...

re: 5.5 Games Back - LSUhornet17
[quote]Remember that that is simply a statistical analysis.[/quote] Yeah, that means it uses all of the data available instead of just picking a random year that supports your view point.

re: 5.5 Games Back - LSUhornet17
Ryan Schwan at BSS did this great piece years ago on draft probabilities. [link=(http://www.bourbonstreetshots.com/2012/06/22/the-value-of-a-draft-pick-and-the-hornets-picks/)]LINK[/link] Essentially, picks 6-10 are the same in terms of the probability you get a star or contributor (or bust)....
