As I write this the Hornets trail the Orlando Magic in a preseason game by 36 points!!!!!
Okay, I know it’s only the preseason but I’m a worry-wort and the Hornets worry me.
They’ve looked terrible this preseason.
Sure, I know Emeka Okafor has not played because of a toe injury but still…this team does not look like a Western Conference contender.
Take away all stars Chris Paul and David West because it’s understood that those guys will bring it each night and will be the heart and soul of the team.
Julian Wright does not look like an NBA starter and Peja looks old and inconsistent off the bench…same for James Posey.
New bench player Darius Songaila seems lost at the uptempo pace of the Hornets offense.
As for the starting shooting guard position…who thought the team would miss Rasual Butler so much?
I gave up on Morris Peterson last season and this year he’s already seemingly lost his job to Devin Brown….DEVIN BROWN!!!
If Devin Brown is a starter for the Hornets it’s time to start searching for 2010 mock lottery drafts because the Hornets are headed to the lottery!
Rookies Darren Collison and Marcus Thornton have not been given enough playing time for me to formulate an opinion but I will say I do like both players at this point.
To sum it up, this team better get healthy and start playing at the top of it’s game or in my opinion they’re gonna take another step backwards this season!
Heck, maybe it’s even time to try to make a trade to spark the team before the season begins! Seriously, if this group can’t get it done start making moves now to try to salvage the season instead of waiting to February and selling off the entire club (except for CP3) in a fire sale.
Just my opinion.
