Hornets will win the draft I believe. Them and Cavs have brightest future, regardless. Imagine adding the number 1 and let's say 7 pick to a core already having Jack+Gordon+Aminu? Gonna be a great team in the near future!

If they get the #1 pick with the t wolves pick, that'll be 2 #1 overall picks that we traded away in consecutive years lmao

Would that be something? Clippers trade Baron Davis, Kyle Irving, Anthony Davis for Chris Paul and Mo Williams. That is a lot of point guards.

Maybe, assuming that Gordon can ever manage to play close to a full season. And I'm still not sold Aminu is ever going to be anything better than decent.

Guys cut the crap. It wasn't the Clippers pick that got the top pick... our pick got them the 10 spot.

It would be hilarious next year. New Orleans trade Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis, some big expiring contract, and a first rounder pick for Chris Paul.

this just proved the Clips trade was a better trade.not that our pick was no.1 because it was no.10.it allowed the Hornets to lose enough to get a better shot at no.1.maybe that was part of the deal when the team got sold.not the craziest conspiracy theory,is it?

Sorry guys, I just tuned in seconds before the they announced the top pick. Just figured since that's been out luck. Anyway, Stern just finalized the sale of the Hornets with that magic of his. wink

What a way to close the deal, Stern! lol

Hornets with lakers trade = screwed (old players, no money)

Hornets with clippers trade = going to be really good (young, cheap, hard working players)

I dont know all the players but this as the core, and cap space to go along with it? Bullshit that Odom and Kevin Martin make a better deal.

Jack

Gordon

Aminu

Smith

Davis

Our trade with NO was clearly a better deal for the Hornets than the Lakers trade that got nixed. Anyone who won't admit that is either delusional or doesn't know much about basketball.

Yeah, but the fact that they'd have probably been a borderline playoff team with the lakers' offer made them more likely to win.

not implying it did.just them losing Paul and not getting guys who contributed enough to help them to a better record

https://twitter.com/KidNamedAksel/statu ... 8376280065 i called it! haha

Glad for the hornets, sucks davis is going to be in our conference (hopefully blake dodges a block or two..) Letting Kaman go and trading okafor for pieces and retaining money plus still having jack, aminu, ariza, landry, smith, marco, gordon (if stays) add davis and the 10th pick with a great coach in Monty Williams..That's a top 7-5 team in the west, I'm worried. Hopefully Davis is counted as a center on the ballot, alot of Kentucky riders would put him to start over blake in the asg.

I cannot believe how shamelessly Stern spits in the face of the fans. The fix was in. Again. New Orleans wins the lottery, what a shocker! Don't be surprised if in 20 years all the dirty things he did are surfaced somehow. I will not be surprised in the least bit if this "lottery" victory was part of the deal to sell the team.

I don't care either way, kind of wish it would have been Charlotte just because they're in the East and are truly the worst team in the history of the league...whatever, won't affect us at all because N.O. still won't be able to compete with us...But come on. How obvious can it be!

Has any on here seen the video of the 1985 ( Patrick Ewing) draft?

I've never been one for conspiracy theories but after watching this video, I really don't know what to think.

This was when the the picking order was done on National TV. The envelopes where thrown into the tumbler and picked out. I wonder why they went away from that? Hmmmmmmmmm.

If you haven't seen this, watch.

I can't post links yet, but there's a picture of Davis with a Hornets hat...They also talk about how Cleveland lost Lebron and got the number one pick also when the chances are against them.

I've never been one for conspiracy theories either but.... Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_25

he's pretty skinny with a worse post game than blake did coming into the league. He is smart and can play sick D, but a little bit too over hyped

What would you guys think of trading bledsoe and some future picks to bobcats for #2 pick? I know it's not enough,but we could throw in some more pieces. With #2 we could take Beal, drummond, or MKG
