OMG, I knew it was about to happen. What a mistake of getting rid of TC.
Jawon Wright is not starting material and Peja is coming off the bench. What kind of players they got for Butler. IDK This team lacks toughness and we don't even run the floor well. Look slow and sluggish.

Hornets needed shooters in the off season and they went in opposite directions. Also Morris Peterson haven't played good since coming to
NO.

Starters should have been
CP3
Peja
West
TC
Turkalou(Should have made a major run for him)

Should have signed Pargo back and Thornton in draft. Also should have drafted a Center instead of two Gurads.

Ill bet you anything the GM is under heavy fire right now and this is his last chance to blame someone else for all of his mistakes. If he really wants to prove that he brought in the right players, this is his chance. Usually when the GM pulls this move it doesn't end very well.

Exactly this team is undersized and old. It doesn't make any sense for us to play a half court style of offense when we have guards and fowards who are at their best in the open floor.

yeah i heard today Bower has been with the team 14 years, and that his job may come under fire..

I think he did have some good plans, and i thought a lot of his moves were good at the time. They just haven't worked out. I mean look at the depth of our bench.

This clearly isn't some spur of the moment deal. Otherwise Floyd wouldn't have been already lined up to be an assistant coach. They've been working this move out for a while.

I wonder what CP3's really thinking right now. A lot of people are playing the "CP3 wants out card" which is so irritating since there's not a shred of evidence to suggest that aside from him saying he hates to lose.

I love that Byron is gone, but why now? Why not when we lost by 58(!) at home (!!) in the freaking playoffs (!!!!!!!)? What changed over about 10 games? Why would you not can him over the summer and give yourself a chance to hire a coach who maybe has coached a basketball team before? Or at least give your new coach a chance to go through the preseason as the head coach and have all of your players on the same page? Nobody is buying the fact that Bower will be head coach next year (if he is, then we're in serious trouble); he'll be as big a lame duck coach as you'll ever see this year.

Byron gone, replaced with Jeff freakin' Bower and Tim Floyd.

One step forward, 10 steps back.

"Accountability is key," team president Hugh Weber said. "I told Jeff 'the genie is out the bottle.' Nobody can say we didn't have the right players. Jeff has handpicked this team. We like the idea that Jeff will be held accountable for this team."

I couldnt help reading this without translating it as "Jeff, you're next"

While CP is certainly able to fit into any system, I think shoehorning him into a Van Gundy halfcourt slog diminishes his ability to take over a game. It would certainly refocus the team defense concept - as we do have a legitimate shot blocker now - but would seriously ****** the opportunity to play attractive, flowing basketball.

Like it or not, teams take advantage of CP3's small frame by rubbing him off screens and picks to create penetration. The inability of the help defense to properly identify open men and rotate quickly is what is killing the Hornets right now. It seems that the defense has gotten passive and uncertain of their proper positioning. I don't know if that is all Byron Scott's fault, but many of these players have had several years in the system yet still make the same mistakes. Combine that with erratic substitution patterns (Mo Pete goes from starter ... to inactive, Devin Brown goes from inactive ... to starter) that make it pretty obvious that Scott didn't have an answer to the questions being posed, a history of driving players hard in practice (A.I. voice: "Practice? Practice?), and a track record of many years of being unable to develop young talent not named Chris Paul, and change must be made. I think Hugh got it right when he said what the concern was: accountability. For too long Scott had blamed his players - while not naming them directly - for what has seemed an overly complex defense and offense. He, I think, failed to grasp that HE had to make changes if the program wasn't working. Is that fair? Maybe not. But it is basketball, for better or worse.

And for those that jump all over Tim Floyd: the man is a solid coach. He has shown an ability to draw up creative plays (remember D-West's rookie year and a great out-of-bounds lob against the Pacers? West blew the lob, by the way) and teach team defense concepts that are followed by young players AND work. Is he Phil Jackson? No. But Floyd has never had a team with Kobe, Shaq, or Michael Jordan on it either. FWIW, he has just as many rings as a head coach as Byron Scott has: none. Floyd (and Bower) doesn't have to be a world-beater here: he just has to get the Hornets to play closer to their potential. If he can do that - something Scott hasn't for the last 50 games or so - we will be comfortably in the playoffs and making good noise.

Should have happened in the offseason. That one ridiculous loss to the Nuggets was proof. The players quit on him that night. If your players quit on you in a playoff game at home, you shouldn't be coaching that team.

Starting line up should be Collison Thornton Paul West and Okafor. If we cant D up, why not put in all scorers?

West, can you please dunk the ball? Someone needs to light a fire in that dudes butt.
