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...

re: Let's the discuss the severity of AD's injuries/upcoming surgery and his future - LSUhornet17
[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: Would We Really Want Simmons? - LSUhornet17
[quote]fairly loaded LSU team[/quote] I see you have not seen the Tigers play basketball this year. Simmons was not the problem. Kid averaged 20, 10, & 5. That team would've been scraping the barrel of the conference without him....

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. Really easy to cherry pick one year where 6 is better than 10. It is just as easy to pick a year where 10 was...

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)....

re: Demps - Asking AD to Move Mountains - LSUhornet17
[quote]Asik was a big disappointment last year but due to trading a pick he didn't want him to walk and he over payed. [/quote] Asik was a net positive last year even with his atrocious start when he was recovering from back injury. He had a terrible matchup in the playoffs and has not been good ...

re: Trade Deadline - Things to consider - LSUhornet17
The Cavs were already 20+ mil over the luxury tax. You are insane if you think they would just add Anderson's salary on top of that, even if they could use a TPE to absorb it. Cleveland could not make any deal without sending out that salary, and it's quite possible they didn't want to send anything...

Yes because the most accurate way to judge the probability of landing a contributor in the draft is to use a sample size of 2. Outstanding logic there....

re: Trade Deadline - Things to consider - LSUhornet17
[quote]That is a two way street. Assuming no offers were made for Anderson at any point because no trade was made is also faulty logic. You have no idea if Was offered a protected first or future seconds and Dell rejected it because he thought he should get betetr. [/quote] I am not assuming that...

[quote]My biggest problem with what did or didn't happen with the trade deadline is we still don't know what direction they want to go.[/quote] I'm with you there. I think these 29 games will matter to the FO. There will be an evaluation on if the team is improving or if the struggles continue. I...
