New Orleans Hornets Review and Information
The Hornets have strengthen and become lawful playoff contenders--by insertion better outside shooters and better post men around Chris Paul. Peja Stojakovic, Bobby Jackson and Rasual Butler are reliable outside shooters and will get abundance of good looks with Paul penetrating and passing. Desmond Mason wasn't a border threat at small forward last season, but his aptitude to post up and drive will balance Stojakovic. David West blossom into one of the the majority improved players in the league last season, though he's not a ideal power forward.
The gaining of 7-1 center Tyson Chandler from Chicago and the employ of first-round picks on 6-11 Hilton Armstrong and 6-9 Cedric Simmons make stronger the interior defense and rebounding. Armstrong and Simmons contain a lot to study, but they and Chandler will transport immediate growth to the guard. The New Orleans Hornets team has the youth and athleticism to run and trap the way coach Byron Scott likes--and it has additional size inside, better depth and more experienced person leadership than it had a year ago. The Hornets will need all those things to go back to the postseason after a two-year absence.
I see the Hornets as a final round team. They have actually changed in the past two or so years, going from a big, slow team that played bland to a team that wants to play uptempo. Kudos to George Shinn for finally expenditure some money. It may have shocked everybody, but I tell you, you won't find a sign that better suits a team than these guys receiving Peja Stojakovic. He comes in and by now knows the offense, and he's coming to a side with an outstanding young point protector, Chris Paul, who will be help by Peja's shooting. Paul is so good getting to the storage bin that teams have to load up on him. When they went to twice on Paul last season, they did not have to honor J.R. Smith when he was on the border. They will have to worry about Peja. You cannot be slow final out on him.
