John Hollinger is the man when it comes to the NBA and his assessment of the Hornets is dead-on!
For the Hornets, Wednesday night’s result underscores an area that is likely to be an issue all season — the depth at point guard and center. Once again, they got a rough outing off the pine from Mike James, whom coach Byron Scott had called out a day earlier, and ended up playing Chris Paul over 42 minutes at the point. James is only 8-for-25 from the floor on the season and has just seven assists in seven games. At the rate he’s going, the D-League might have a point guard called up before its season even starts.
