True. I can't name one 2024 high draft prospect at the moment. Armando Bacot - not really
About the same time last year, I at least knew these 3.
Victor Wembanyama - transcendent prospect
Brandon Miller - potential Hornet
Scoot Henderson - potential Hornet

Bacot more than likely won’t be drafted

I could see a team possibly taking a late second round flier on him just because he's a good rebounder. But he's never going to a rotation guy in the NBA. He's either an undersized 5 (LOL at UNC listing him at 6'11, probably closer to 6'9.5) who isn't a rim protector or he's a 4 with extremely below average ball handling and shooting skills.

But yeah he doesn't fit the mold of a modern NBA big. Plus he'll be 24 before this season is over. They'll be drafting kids 5 years younger than him.

better than who they had and not in danger of causing a mutiny

he’s not an elite coach, but he’s closer to being elite than to being absolutely terrible

Sidney Lowe is an absolutely terrible coach

More ESPN anti-NC State bias: headline for this feat is Donic scores 73, ties Wilt.

Just ignoring that David Thompson also scored 73. And never had a fan ejected because he hurt his feelings

Damn th Hornets are terrible. It would have to be awful to be a member of the broadcast crew and have to cover every game. I'm glad I don't have time to watch the NBA.

I'm also glad you don't have time to watch the NBA. And Eric Collins is still one of the best announceres even when the Hornets are this bad.

The Doc Rivers hire is already paying off. Lose to the 14 win blazers with some incredibly bad end of game coaching including (but not limited to) having giannis receive the inbounds pass down 3 instead of literally any other player on the floor. He was then fouled and proceeded to miss both free throws, a not completely unexpected result from a 66% free throw shooter.

according to Bucks twitter, it’s the same end-of-game play that they ran successfully against the Kings recently, it just got fucked up

regardless, it’s silly to use one result a few games into his coaching there as an “I told you so”

Do we really expect Doc on the Bucks to be appreciably different from Doc in Philly or LA where he was also known as poor at in-game adjustments and strategy?

He is a great player's coach. I think the modern NBA requires more than that and it's a shame the Bucks didn't hire Nick Nurse (apparently Giannis put the stop to that) over the summer.

I don’t think he’s a great coach, but he’s what they needed given the circumstances they were in with Griffin

they’re more likely to flame out in the playoffs than win it all, but from everything I’ve read/heard, they were on the verge of a mutiny with Griffin

Lol at the bucks getting outscored 40-13 in the 4th quarter on Sunday to lose by 15. Classic Doc 4th quarter coaching.

I appreciate complete game in baseball more than playing in all 82 games in nba, but i consider both relatively equal

I would consider playing all 48 minutes of an NBA game comparable to a complete game in baseball. Or playing all 82 regular season NBA games comparable to playing all 162 regular season MLB games.

Yeah i don't really compare basketball and baseball because one is played at the highest level professionally by some of the best athletes in the world and one is regularly played at the highest levels by fatass dudes who look like plumbers

Hornets trade Gordon Hayward to OKC for scraps and PJ Washington to the Mavs for local kids Grant Williams and Seth Curry and some pick swaps. Meh.
