    As most of you know by now, we own the rights to the Hornets Top-7 Lottery Protected Pick in this year's upcoming draft. All that it means is if New Orleans draft pick is between 8-30, it is ours!

    Unfortunately, they are 3-0 and looking like they did when they made their run back in 2008.

    Up next: @ Houston on Wednesday to face a hungry Rockets team looking for their 1st win of the season. If NO manages another tough win, look out!

    do you think Chris Paul wears a rolex? how about Monty Williams now that he's a head coach?

    oh, you weren't talking about timepieces when you used the word "watch!"


    okay, seriously ... do you think this year's draft class is going to be better than next year? how does this pick involve possible trades (i.e.the higher the pick, the more we get for it)? we really have no control over what number the pick is, but the season is young and who knows, it might end up being number eight!

    Best case scenario number 8, but what are we drafting for? D do you think we are going to draft for talent or do another draft for position (possibly center since we are old and frail there and set for pgs for at least this and next season barring trade scenarios).  I need to see some college bigs see if there are any under the radar players that can contribute big, anybody have any players to watch in that catagory?

    Jerryd Bayless is a shot of pure adrenaline that the Hornets needed. That, and Monty Williams is the early front runner for coach of the year.

    Kassandra,  imo, the draft pick will be packaged in a trade for a big before next season.  To bad the Blazers didn't go after Hibbert  before the Pacers decided they liked him.

    Here is NBADraft.Net's 11-03-10 Mock Draft..lots of players I'd love to acquire.

    Unfortunately right now we'd have the 29th pick, but let's assume it's between 12-18.

    Keep an eye out on Kentucky freshman point guard, Brandon Knight, who I saw live at the Hoop Summit and looks to be legit. With no more Bayless and Andre 35, we need another young pg to go into the future with along side Armon.

    Also, Jan Vessley from Czech Republic looks like another Euro-star who could play the 3/4 positions.

    More prospects will set themselves apart once the season starts for the college kids.

    Hornets are playing well early.  Kudo's to Monty.  With that being said I think the best positioning they could get would be an 8 seed.

    This pick is going to be live this year, it just may or may not be ours by draft time. They will falter later, but as long as they are at least in the running for playoffs in the west it should be 12-15 range, and if they make it it'll be a mid to late pick. A team like this will have its true test once it starts losing, will they respond to Monty if they suddenly start losing. I'm real happy for Monty getting off to a solid start though.

    Yeah, I had a feeling the Hornets were going to be much better this season. Of course, it's a long way to go, and the possibility of injuries are always there, especially for Paul. They look really promising though, especially after beating the Heat last night. I have been rooting for them, despite them being a Western Conference competitor, because of Coach Monty and Bayless, and of course, CP3.

    I tend to think our pick will be packaged as well. Even if Greg and Bayless come back, we could still use a little more depth at the 4 or 5 or the 4/5.

    Even though they are rival for us, I'm kinda happy for them. They had a rough year or two, so it's nice to see them doing well. Yes, happy for Monty also . . any word on how Bayless is doing? Would love to see him in some highlights - but none outstanding ones, that are usually featured on NBA.com, at least last I checked. Should be interesting to see how long this opening winning streak goes and see if they can stay consistent in the coming weeks.

    Bayless is not doing to well.  Hes only averaging like 3 points per game, but I guess we shouldnt expect him to put up big numbers this year since he is playing as cp3's backup at pg and 3rd string sg behind Marco Bellineli and Willie Green.

    Willie Green went 1-9 in that game. Jerryd only attempted one shot. That Hornet team is about hustle, David West, and Chris Paul. The other players just try and keep up with those guys.

    Its amazing what a healthy CP3 can do for a team...one of the last 2 unbeatens in the NBA. Will they come back down to earth? Most likely. But, I still think we'll be picking in the mid-20's come June.

    Look for Tristan Thomas(Texas)(Finnesse LA lite),Fab Melo(Syracuse)(Dwight without vert )id say with our pick we pick Renardo Sidney from Mississippi State.  He has the ability to be as good as Chris Webber at 6'10 270 with handle and a shot with range currently out to the college 3 and if he works on his post game can become a real problem.  Make this kid work and tone up and he can be a real problem.

    Potential is undeniable

    We're not going to get CP3. He is playing on a championship contender. If you disagree with that, he is playing on a better playoff team than Blazers, can't disagree with that. Why would he move here? To play along side an injured Broy?

    We could really use Jerryd a lot right now. He was always good when we need instant offense and we need it with Oden gone and B-Roy injured. N.O. looks legit right now and that pick may not be the net result we had all hoped for once the trade was made.

    Who did?
    I did. hahaha, i called it, clippers by 2.
    I was at that game, my homie hit me up with some extra tickets..... it was such a good game though, so close.
    that one guy blake griffin is saving that team, and everyone , like really EVERYONE there was talking about his dunks on NY, redonkulous.
    David west though, man he is such an interesting player, his game is so nice, and i swear he got so much bigger this season.

    And Baron hasnt been playing for them for a few games, he has sat out, and i found out that he has a reputation for "faking injuries". He doesnt like playing agaisnt other UCLA Pg's, and supposedly he has a reputation for this. Well he missed a few games and due to the lack of exercise his knee swelled up and he is too out of shape to come back to play.
     HAHA. 
    They are trying to trade him but no one is interested in his bad attitude.
    he's an ankle breaker though.....

    NO is now sitting at 12-5, finally coming down to earth a little bit. I still think they will be a 4-6 seed out West, but it's better then them being in the top 3. The more they lose, the better the pick and right now we could use some good fortune.
