It's possible MKG (hamstring) plays Saturday vs. Thunder.
Training camp-like practice for Hornets today. Team brought in refs for full-scale scrimmage.
Next time you see Marvin Williams play, he'll be in a protective mask. He had surgery during the break to reset a cracked nose bone.
The Dragic "Who reported it first?" is unbecoming. I've been there and it is silly.
FWIW: People associated with the Hornets say it's less than likely that they'll deal Lance Stephenson by the deadline.
Had 3 conversations with significant NBA player-personnel sources. Was surprised to hear: "Not much going on, might be slow deadline."
Got various reactions that Zeller isn't a tease and Al Jefferson would be crazy to opt out. Honestly, think just the opposite.
Reasoning: Marvin and Hendo are overpaid, yet useful. Zeller is a tease. Big Al could opt out and Lance is Lance.
Asked good Q tonight::Most likely to least likely next season among 5 Hornets. My answer: Williams, Zeller, Henderson and Big Al/Lance tie.
I get awesome power of ESPN "trade machine." But questions that begin "any chance" 2 days before trade deadline are generally non-starters.
What's on tv worth watching tonight?
Long overdue Carolyn Peck doing studio on men's games. She's smart, insightful and telegenic. She has nothing to offer on MCB? Absurd.
Difference: Virginia's rotations are precise as far as exchanging on-ball responsibility. But Kentucky so disruptive end-to-end.
FWIW: Virginia looks like best-coached defense in college ball -- they are so linked. But Kentucky could be better for athletes involved.
Also been asked if Mo Williams will supplant Brian Roberts as the short-term starter. That would surprise me unless Roberts flames out.
Lot of chatter about how George Karl and DeMarcus Cousins will co-exist. He stood firm with Melo in Denver. Don't see George getting pliable
The Mo Williams trade addressed a problem. Anything else would have to be something Cho and Co., find really appealing.
Been asked of late likelihood Hornets make another trade. Before Mo Williams trade I thought 60 percent. Now I'd say 40 percent.
what's everyone snow/ice situation this morning? I'm bout to go check right now....
