Going out on a limb here and saying the Bucks don't miss Jabari one bit.

He’s perfecting his defensive talents for the right team. Maybe he was guarding Klay tonite.

Klay says scoreboard.

Just messing with you for the record.

Didn't need the teal. I appreciate the messing.

Kemba has had games of 41, 39 and 37 this season and his low is 23.

Klay hadn't hit 20 points in a game all season before last night.

I have no problem stating again that I'd take a great scoring PG who consistently excels despite a relative lack of help.

Arse is bolted to the bench.

They gave him every opportunity. He can't play D, and he's not a good enough offensive player to overcome that. Taking him over Winslow was a huge mistake, and I said it at the time. Taking Monk over Mitchell last year, same thing. Those are 2 (of many) reasons the Hornets' former GM is now their former GM.

Difference is though, that I think Monk can become a very good player. Kaminsky will be a journeyman.

Unrestricted FA after this season.     Some other NBA team or Europe?

Going to be fun to think back on Kaminskys career and how MJ passed on 4 firsts for him

Boston wanted Winslow at that spot and offered a haul of 4 first rounders. Hornets said no.

Ah ... I do recall hearing about that back then now that y'all have reminded me.

All I could think about when 4 first-rounders were mentioned was the recent talk about that offer for Jimmy Butler and I was wondering what that had to do with Kamisky.

Thanks for the reminder.

I'm not a Hornets fan the same way I am a Panthers fan. I'd rather watch LeBron play, or the Warriors play, etc. But I'd rather see the Hornets win than lose. I admit I'd probably get less apathetic about them if they would be any good.

That really came out of the blue.

Rose dribbled the ball more in the game than the entire rest of the team combined. I don't think that will go over too well when Jimmy decides to play again.

To have success in the NBA, Henry has to be able to shoot from distance. Even if he could only defend at a sub-mediocre level, he'd get playing time if he could hit 3s. When the NBA was projecting him as a prospect, they thought he could develop into an effective "stretch 4." The Pistons apparently have decided the experiment is a failure.

Maybe it will happen with another team. I keep thinking about how Spencer Hawes became a guy who could contribute at the NBA level because he developed into a 3-point threat. Shot 30% from distance his first 5 seasons and was considered a major bust, but then became nearly a 40% shooter from behind the arc over his next several years and went on to have a 10-year career in which he earned $48 million.

So maybe Henry still can do it.

Surely Lebron would never try to force out a coach mid season that he didn't approve or handpick for one that he did.  Thats not how he's historically operated at all.  Nah.

It seems from afar that Magic is the ringleader on this.
