    Did they forget to record his OT stats? I saw his stats at the end of the 4th and they didn't seem to change in the final box score...?

    Get home and look at heat-bulls box score...

    Rose scores 2 points, 1-13 from the floor, whilst the Heats Big 3 make 30, 20 and 21 points.

    yet the Heat still manage to lose.

    WTF

    Loving the depth of the Bulls at the moment.

    CJ is a bit hit and miss but when he's on he would be one of the best back-up point guards in the league.

    Hot Sauce has been huge the last two games. Did it all against the Knicks and backed it up today dropping them from everywhere.

    Asik and Gibson bring so much energy off the bench, especially on the defensive end and crashing the offensive boards.

    And big Ronnie Brewer, while not offering to much on the offensive end, is always good for the odd tipped pass or steal while playing fantastic man-to-man D.

    Great signs for the Bulls as flexibility is a handy asset to have in the playoffs. You know you have good depth when the White Mamba can't even get a gig!

    Did Kobe take Rose's #1 jersey today? F***ing ******ed plays and shots left, right and center.

    Seriously D.Rose you have seriously talented teammates, give them the ball when it's not going in the f***ing hoop.

    The long wait is OVER!!!! (apparently) THE HORNETS HAVE BEEN SOLD!!!

    NFL team owner Tom Benson owner of the New Orleans Saints has purchased the team for $338 mill and change.

    Not the ownership group I wanted to buy the team but in no way the group I didn't want to buy the team.

    I guess I can kiss a rigged draft goodbye :mad: the only way the Hornets were getting the number pick in the draft was if Stern could draw the number 1 pick and hand it too himself.

    Goodbye Monty. You did a swell job with what you had and I'm sure you'll make the Clippers or Knicks much better teams next year, there is no way you keep your job this off season though (if what I have been reading over the last few months is correct)

    Hornets cannot move now as long as Benson owns the New Orleans Saints so we staying.

    Oh and If you thought the hit from Smith on Blake was hard wait till next season when the Hornets introduce their own bounty system :D

    Sorry for the tl;dr

    Posted at 3:42, wow you were up bright and early this mornin!

    Stoked to hear this news, it's about time. I'm excited about the Hornets future now, Benson is saying the right things and the Saints recent success (dodgy or otherwise) indicates to me that his words are not just fluff. I really hope they don't change their name from the Hornets though, I will be really disappointed if they do. I hope they retain Monty and he can have a decent crack at it next season with some stability and hopefully some significant talent at his disposal.

    Could come down to the game on the 25th when they play the Bucks.

    But think sblack's mentioned it before. Team and Collins not on the same page. Always been a liability offensively and now opponents dictating us. Probably too naive to think that our 20-9 start was going to last for the rest of the season.

    Blow up the team in the off season, but we're probably not going to...
