Byron Scott Fired…

Ok, so By Scott was thrown under the bus as the Hornets have stumbled out of the gate at 3-6…but look at this quote below from the team’s COO: “I told Jeff [the current GM who will now be the coach], ‘The genie’s out of the bottle,”’ Hornets chief operating officer Hugh Weber said. “Nobody can say he doesn’t have the right players.”

Ok…the bold highlight is mine…this roster has ‘the right players’???? They have 1 superstar PG…great. They have a solid, better than average PF (D West), who’s a bit undersized, and not playing well to start the year. They have a solid, better than average C (Okafor) who’s also a bit undersized and quite inconsistent. Then what? Look at this roster….it’s basically repulsive.

Peja – Done… Dev Brown – Journeyman… Songaila – Career reserve, marginal talent… Bobby Brown – huh??… Mo Pete – Done, and barely a 6th, 7th guy at his peak… Posey – Done… Ju Wright – Not getting it yet, at all… Hilton Armstrong – solid reserve PF/C…nothing more.

There is basically nothing here besides a legend-in-the-making PG and two better than average but undersized bigs. So again – “Nobody can say he doesn’t have the right players.” – Really??? Well I sure can..and millions of other knowledgable NBA fans could, and I’m guessing NBA GM’s, coaches, and execs could also say it…HE DOESN”T HAVE THE RIGHT PLAYERS!!!

I can’t wait to see this team continue to flounder, confounding this idiot COO and his GM/coach.
