  • I'm a Paul Heyman guy.
I'm really liking this Charlotte lineup with Nicolas Batum in it. The floor is more open, and they get a secondary playmaker.

I wonder if they there's a move there that they can do and get a better shooting SG instead of playing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in with the Kemba - Howard - Williams - Batum lineup? If they can get that 3 and D wing, that would just make the Dwight Howard/Kemba Walker pick and roll all the more deadly. Bring MKG off the bench to add some defensive intensity there.

But I don't know if there's a player there they can acquire.

Lebron with 4 fouls and Hornets couldn't capitalize.

Charlotte bench is a joke

Listening to the Cavaliers broadcast team as a non-Cavs fan (especially Austin Carr the color commentator) must be what it's like for our opponents to listen to Tommy.

I find them unbearable, but since I live in Cleveland I always have to watch their feed to watch Cavs games.  :-\

I find Tommy unbearable.  When he complains about foul calls, its basically a coin flip whether he's right.

Not a fan of Tommy either, but I can stand him because he's biased toward my team.

I completely understand why fans of other teams would hate watching our broadcast team, though Gorman is definitely one of the best play-by-play guys in the business.

Dunn is a total bust. He was old as a rookie, and he has shown absolutely no signs of improvement. I still remember when a bunch of people were p---ed the Celtics took Jaylen over him on draft night.

The only reason why people wanted Dunn is to trade him for Jimmy Butler or Noel.

I was one of those people, but prior to tonight he had actually looked like a completely different player, scoring in double figures in 5 of his first 7 contests as opposed to last year when he only did so 7 times over 78 games.  How is that not improvement?

Putting up more numbers from more playing time on a bad team doesn't mean improved play. He has not improved on any aspects of his game at all.

Which would have been a very bad decision in retrospect.

So upping his fg% from .377 last year to .429 coming into tonight doesn't count as improvement?  Seriously?

Brook Lopez is a terrible 3 pt shooter. Wide open and bricked
