What pisses you off the most…

There’s a WHOLE bunch of things we can pick from over multiple years.

I lose sleep, through choice of course, and when we play arse it affects my mood.. but that’s part of being a fan. The flip side being, if we ever win it all.. it will be the BEST feeling.

For me, the big thing is we are too damn good to be this mediocre. This is supposed to be our ‘golden’ generation, a superstar, an all star, young studs and a superb supporting cast and we just can’t bloody get it right…it’s been constant under performing and disappointment.

We’ve seen how absolutely dominating and superb we can be when we decide to play… but 50% of the time it’s like we can’t be bothered.

Really crap ATO’s and idiotic turnovers make my blood boil. They are right up there.. unfortunately we are really good at doing both of those!

Our team not taking their jobs seriously, not playing hard based on opponent or clubs in the area, lead by our very best players.

I agree. Coaching has been really bad. ATO’s suck and rotations make zero sense. Effort and intensity is lacking on most nights. You miss shots but lack of effort is inexcusable.

The fact that we can't win with any consistency unless we are close to 100% healthy is pretty bleak.

Our two star players are healthy for the most part and we only have a .500 record to show for it.

Injuries. The Clippers may be the only other franchise that seems to be as regularly snake bitten in the long term.

People are understandably upset about losing twice to Utah, but when the Pels are missing 3 of their top 4 3 point shooters, that lets Utah camp their mobile bigs in the paint which neutralizes the team's primary strength. Even having Matt Ryan available would have helped.

Yep… this is a big one too. 110% Effort should be an absolute minimum requirement. Unfortunately it seems like a bit of a luxury for some reason.

The problem is our 2 stars don't shoot the 3 and all our shooters expect 1 are out. You can not win consistently in the modern NBA without shooting and making 3's. The only thing worse than taking 22 3's is only making 7 when you shoot so few you better make the ones you do take. If we just had Matt Ryan we win the game last night.

This is another thing... It's bad enough that Griffin built this team around two guys who have no intention of shooting a bunch of 3's, but it's even worse that he doubled down and waited until year 5 of Zion and BI to start putting shooters around them. He constructed this roster like a complete buffoon.

I just want us to win the chip once… it will make all the suffering worth it and stay with me forever.

It’s ironic and embarrassing that we’re 1 of 2 teams (I think) to never make a conference final.

re: What pisses you off the most…
Yeah our team still isn’t healthy. We’re missing our third and maybe fourth best players who also happen to be our best shooters. To top it off BI has missed games and Zion has missed games due to rest. Due to a tough schedule we’ve had, honestly .500 isn’t bad. That doesn’t mean they should or couldn’t be better. But we’re what 3 or 4 games out of first in the west with what 60 plus games to go. Thats not a horrible position to be in.

Us and the Hornets.

The legacy of the OG Charlotte Hornets is one of great hilarity.

…and that’s how I ended up here. Hornets fan as a child. Moved with the franchise to here.

Could have literally picked any team but ended up with the one that can’t get out the second round and make the playoffs once every decade.

Love the city though so that’s a bonus.

The downside is I’ve picked up the Saints now too so I share that frustration somewhat!

FT% We can totally control that. We lost some games because of the lazy FT shooting.

Buying tickets for 4.5 years and having seen the marque player and attraction play live something like twice.

If you would have told me 3 years ago that Houston, OKC, and Minnesota will be better off than us I would have laughed in your god damn face. Now I wanna cry

When they take out a player that is on a roll. They did this at least 2x last night

Zion’s effort fricking sucks and frankly so does BI’s most of the time. They have no interest in playing defense and for the most part they only give a shite when they have the ball in their hands.

I’m sick of that shite.

re: What pisses you off the most…
I will tell you what I am pissed off about the most right now. Last night's game. And the loss was just part of it.

I am pissed off that I had to watch and fiercely pull against a team with our stolen name, stolen logo, stolen uniforms, and stolen colors (which they hardly ever use anymore). Not only that, but they were also celebrating our 50th anniversary with that bland mid court design.

Before the game, they were honoring Leonard Truck Robinson and AJ From the Parking Lot James. I bet they were pulling for New Orleans. AJ for sure. Pistol Pete must be rolling in his grave.

If I live to be 100 I will not get over having our franchise stolen out from under us and having it continue on under the most absurd name in all of sports.
