This team is a mess. They are over the luxury tax, are thin on the bench and have little scoring punch. They aren't going to spend anymore money. They're actually the team that should have went to OKC.
Scott should have been fired right after the 58 point home play off loss debacle and you are right Paul is going to want out soon. I guess the question is how much value are the Hornets going to get in return for him? They might have to start looking soon, because if he ever makes it known he wants out they will have a hard time getting seventy cents on the dollar back for him.
Mike Wilbon LOVES that Tim Floyd has a job again. Tee hee! I'd say that maybe the Hawks can atone for their Biggest Mistake Ever in passing on Chris Paul, but I dunno if we can swing a trade for him, even if we offer up Bibby and Teague both.
I'm personally waiting to see if he can do a repeat performance. If the Clippers get this far, but lose Sam Cassell (THE single reason for the Clippers' turnaround) in the offseason, all these good feelings could be for naught.
