    Hmmmmm. More from Rick Bonnell.

    LAS VEGAS -- Having lost restricted free agent Gordon Hayward when the Utah Jazz matched an offer sheet, plus Josh McRoberts to the Miami Heat, the Charlotte Hornets are now open to the prospect of signing Indiana Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson, the Observer learned Tuesday evening.

    Hornets management had contact with Stephenson’s representatives Tuesday, multiple NBA sources confirmed. Stephenson is one of the last name free agents in this class yet to sign, and the Hornets could use his scoring and shooting ability at the wings.

    That is unfair. There have been plenty of less talented, but better fit players who have come onto a team and been better for the team than the more talented player.
    shoot, i've been guilty of being too optimistic myself. i remember thinking Zan Tabak would be able to fill in at starting center in the playoffs. nowadays, i'm just more skeptical.

    the numbers this guy has, over a long career, just don't say he can replace lance. can he make a big leap in his 8th season or whatever? i guess. could he pull an evan turner? just as likely.

    and leaving aside the numbers, i've watched a few Cavs games here and there, and can't remember ever thinking "Watch out for CJ Miles!" Guy seemed completely nondescript.

    I'd hope people are aware of young peoples tendency to document their every though on the internet. You'd think GMs these days would know better than to tell anyone inside info, especially a young daughter...

    That said I don't think she's ever really said anything bad. This included.

    i agree. it just always seems that she is about to say something really bad.

    (hell, you probably remember when painter's daughter said she hoped a recruit would get run over by a train*)

    Haha ya, I'm sure something similar could happen at any moment like that but she's seemed in control so far.

    I just hate all the losers that rode the Miami bench on their way to a ring. Plus how he acted like a big shot because he got some threes against us. I just can't stand the Heat, seems like all their players are little punks with attitudes.

    Doesn't anybody weigh the option of making just a little less these days rather than being stuck on a mediocre team going nowhere? When did it become ALL about the money. So you can make 50 million instead of 45 million. Not much difference is there if you are giving up your loyalty and your happiness in a good situation. Guys now days measure their egos by their decimal points. Sad.

    ^Melo apparently took less.

    Also, did the Pacers look like a real "happy" team or a "good situation" last year?

    Wasn't Rashard Lewis the guy that got caught using PEDs and then his numbers just plummeted?

    Don't know whether the Charlotte news is true or not, but it is very predictable. Charlotte with a bunch of money and no one to spend on; Lance needing leverage from a team, any team. It was just bound to happen. Not saying Lance is sure to sign with them, but like 2 lonely strangers in a bar they're bound to talk with each other at some point.

    Having a teenage daughter myself, I think the fact that he is not actually telling her, not giving her her own way, and keeping her and the rest of us somewhat in the dark ... is a pretty large triumph.

    You put that in quotes like I said it. I have never said "everyone else got better on paper so the Pacers are doomed". If you are going to be like that I'm voting you off the island.
    "Not specific to this reply" was supposed to mean it wasn't a reply to anything you said.

    I've been over the top, but you can't tell me people don't say whatever positive move the Pacers make that they still haven't proven they can beat anyone, yet when other teams make moves they automatically can beat the Pacers. It's almost a mantra.

    If the Pacers weren't loaded at SF, I'd suggest Shawn Marion. He's not a starter, but still a quality guy off the bench.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!
