MKG is out again tonight. Damn if it's not hard to get excited about this team at the moment, they just aren't very good right now and they are not much fun to watch either
Zeller's actually looked pretty good so far. I had pretty much pegged him as a rotation hustle big and nothing more, but I might have been wrong. He's looking like a potential starter. I'm also very excited for Vonleh to get healthy and see what he can bring to the table.I know it's still early - small sample size and all that Jazz - but the best defensive line-up in the NBA so far that has played more than 10 minutes together is...
Kemba - Lance - MKG - Zeller - Big Al
This Hornets team still has the ability to shut people down for stretches in general, but I think those 5 guys should be their crunchtime line-up in the early season. Zeller seems to take less off the table defensively and on the boards than does Marvin. And if Lance could actually start making shots they might be elite.
We all are. I pretty much know nothing about the guy other than what I learned in the month leading up to the draft. Many scouts fell in love with the kid. I can't wait to see if their opinions were accurate.I'm also very excited for Vonleh to get healthy and see what he can bring to the table.
I suspect he'll have the inside track on the backup center job once he gets healthy and acclimated. Biyombo appears to have completely fallen out of favor with Clifford and Jason Maxiell's got a stranglehold on on the second-string spot right now. Maxiell certainly tries his hardest, but he's just a little too short to work as a regular center. Biyombo's an interesting trade piece though, because he protects the rim well and is on an expiring contract. I wouldn't be surprised if a team like Boston or Cleveland, that could use some rim protection, absorbed him into a trade exception or swung a minor deal for him.We all are.
