Hayward was on fire tonight, 44 points, new career high. And another big game by Melo; He is clearly the best of the Ball brothers. He is nowhere near a finished product, but playing the way he has been playing at 19 years old, he is the real deal.

Also shut down one of the best offenses in the leagues tonight in Atlanta. Trae Young had a bad game but I also wonder if the officiating was trying to punish him for his bullshit up the back foul drawing. Most annoying basketball since Harden.

Ball is going to play half-assed for 2 years and express his disgruntlement with CLT (with the help of daddy). He'll then go to a major market team, play a little harder, and win comeback player of the year.

^^ Best pick since Kemba Walker? We use the 3rd pick to choose him, so definitely want him to carry the team on the shoulder for the next 5 yrs at least. Jordan and Mitch won't let him go. Also I can't believe Kemba wasn't got picked until the ninth round back in 2011. A solid PG needs luck to acquire.

BTW, Magic is doing very well so far this season, like the Heat of last yr. Clifford proves he's still a good coach. His leaving is not by his fault.

Ball just has *it* .... and lots of of it. I wasn't a fan of the pick -- I was hoping for Okongwu -- but I was wrong



[Edited on January 8, 2021 at 1:30 PM. Reason : LaMelo has it, that is. Not Lonzo. And definitely not Jello or whoever the hell the other one is.]

Looks like he’ll finish 1 assist shy of a triple double. Strong second half from the Hornets to come back and beat the Pels.

i think just 1 assist

he has definitely earned more playing time but i'm not so gung ho about him starting immediately. there is something to be said about him bringing energy off the bench. and if he ends up getting 30-something minutes per game, i don't really care about if he's in the game the first few minutes of the 1st Quarter. plus Borrego is a Popovich disciple, and Ginobili came off the bench for 2/3 of his career and did just fine

[Edited on January 9, 2021 at 9:05 PM. Reason : and i was just as against the draft pick as anyone, but man, this guy is special]

Yeah you’re right, 1 assist. And he got it as I was typing.

But I agree with the rest of what you said too.

Hornets draft success has been awful. It’s partly bad luck. And partly self inflicted. But theyve finally got a guy that can help attract FA talent to come to Charlotte. He gives people outside of the fan base a reason to care about the Hornets. Maybe he flames out. But his ceiling is something the hornets have been missing (or have never had). He has actual super star potential and he’s somebody you can actually build around. That hasn’t been true for pretty much any other draft pick. And to be clear, Im not ready to crown him or anything. It’s 10 games into his career. But the potential is there for something Charlotte hasn’t had...

If he can bring Hornets to the playoffs, he is gonna win.
He has to be selected to the Rising Star roster in All-Star Games first. That will secure his spot in rookie 1st team probably.

JB the coach has some serious issues using Ball. IMO Ball's minutes should be doubled. Treat him like Stephen Curry or Kemba Walker, then see what happens.
We have the best rookie in the league but dunno how to use him, and see the team is falling far far behind.

Ball needs to learn to play at a more controlled pace. Ill-advised jumpers, overly aggressive passes that lead to turnovers, etc are not going to double his minutes.

Nice wins over Indiana last night and Milwaukee tonight. And Rozier hurt his ankle at the end of the first half, so we might see a starting backcourt of Ball and Graham if Terry misses any time.

also Cody Zeller made Giannis his bitch

^He hit Greek Freak's guts badly. The freak couldn't finish the game and quit early, then we won. What a story!

LaMelo got the minutes he deserved. He could start next game if Rozier still doesn't recover. I see a superstar is rising. He's Charlotte's Trae Young already.

Cody is the only veteran on the roster since Bobcats and coach Steve's era already. Others are all got traded and gone.
